The Mayor of London is calling for a second vote on Brexit after the British people already decided to exit the European Union in democratic vote during June of 2016.
“The British people should get the final say on Brexit. Retweet if you agree,” said Sadiq Khan who is politically liberal and part of Britain’s Labour Party.

But the people already had the final say, and they voted “Leave.” It was the same type of right-wing populism in Britain that voted to exit the bureaucratic EU in favor of a more “Britain-first” approach to governance that would later propel President Donald J. Trump to victory in November of 2016. Indeed, populism and nationalism are trending worldwide.
Khan echoed his call for a second referendum only weeks after publicly announcing this position in an op-ed, and winning enough support within his party to run for re-election in 2020.
“People didn’t vote to leave the EU to make themselves poorer, to watch their businesses suffer, to have NHS wards understaffed, to see the police preparing for civil unrest or for our national security to be put at risk if our cooperation with the EU in the fight against terrorism is weakened,” Khan said in the piece.
But none of that has actually happened. All of the negative externalities listed by Khan are pure speculation, considering that the British government has yet to give in to the demands of the people and actually leave the European Union. Instead, they have stalled at every turn, hoping to force a second referendum.
And Khan is dutifully playing his part in ignoring the will of the “Leave” voters.
“Another public vote on Brexit was never inevitable, or something I ever thought I’d have to call for. But the government’s abject failure – and the huge risk we face of a bad deal or a ‘no deal’ Brexit – means that giving people a fresh say is now the right – and only – approach left for our country,” he said.
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro Endorses Donald Trump’s Reelection
Ties have grown between America and Brazil in recent years.
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro announced his endorsement of President Donald Trump in an event signing a new trade agreement between the United States and Brazil on Tuesday in the South American country.
“God willing I will be able to attend Trump’s second inauguration,” said Bolsonaro at a press conference detailing the new agreement with US National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien. Bolsonaro wanted to emphasize that he does not wish to “interfere” with the US election, but that his support for President Trump comes from the heart.
Bolsonaro and Trump have coordinated on policy to contain Venezuelan and Cuban-style Communism within South America. NSA O’Brien stated that relations between the US and Brazil have “never been stronger” at the trade agreement signing. The US designated Brazil a “non-NATO” ally in 2019, and the two countries have worked together on environmental policy to deter wildfires in the Amazon rainforest.
The new “mini-trade deal” signed between the two countries will regulate telecommunications exchanges between the US and Brazil. Brazil, which is the second-most populous nation in the New World with 211 million people, is an increasingly significant country in global business and diplomatic affairs.
Bolsonaro himself is somewhat of a right-wing populist in the veins of global leaders such as Viktor Orban, Andrzej Duda, and President Trump. He won election in 2018 in a landslide, capitalizing on alienation among the Brazilian electorate for the socialist-style governments that had governed the country for over a decade, mass crime, and preferences for gun rights.
Establishment liberals frequently receive endorsement from globalist leaders across the world, and never think twice about not crying “foreign interference” in the event that it benefits them. President Bolsonaro isn’t an American, but it certainly bodes well to see the leader of the Americas’ second largest country develop a strong working relationship with President Trump.
