Dear America: Brexit Is About Democracy, Not (Merely) Economics
Huffington Post (2016)
  • Dr Brian Christopher Jones, Liverpool Hope University, UK
Much of the Brexit coverage thus far in America, including pleas from government officials, has been focused on the economic aspects of Britain leaving the EU. This piece argues that an economic view is too narrow, and that Brexit is much more about democracy than anything else. It also points to the hypocrisy of American government officials and media not taking into consideration the sovereignty aspects of European Union membership.
