It's the Anniversary of Britain's Independence Day – But Brexit Has Barely Left the Starting Blocks - Breitbart

One year on from the vote to Leave the EU, negotiations have only just begun and MPs are still arguing over whether to go ahead with Brexit.

---from one of our American correspondents.   Extremely kind of you, David, to send it to us here, in England.  I'm passing it on and asking for it to be passed on again as widely as possible.

It occurs to me that in all likelihood, many of the current citizens of England might NEVER have had the opportunity to read this document.Considering the age of the document and the situation in which it was caused to be written, one can now see that its content is ever so much more meaningful to Englishmen now than ever before.

I submit a portion of it for your perusal. I believe it is still quite RELEVANT and in particular, RELEVANT NOW with an eye toward accomplishing in a PEACEFUL MANNER what we "Yanks" had to fight a war with our English brethren in order to accomplish. The verbiage is a little over 240 years old...you may recognize it... As you may guess, the author was at one time, an Englishman although he was actually born in Shadwell, Virginia.

You may find bits of this "quote" useful in your communications with your UKIP colleagues as well as ALL your current countrymen.There is, of course, more, but this first bit will help you get started. (he said with his tongue in his cheek.)

"When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.  "
