My take on the Brexit is that people that have gotten screwed over by deregulation, tax cuts, and globalization are angry. So if you’re angry you have to find someone to blame (other than yourself) and the Brits decided to blame the EU and refugees. Forget accepting any blame for being gullible enough to vote conservatives that sold them down the river.
So not really a good sign for Trump. People here are angry too but luckily the choice between good and bad is a little more obvious, I hope. Public education in the USA has taken a hit.
