The case against Brexit: Daily Bullshit, June 16, 2016

Brexit

George Monbiot argues for Britain remaining in the European Union.[1] Like Ambrose Evans-Pritchard the other day,[2] he compares governments. And like me, he thinks the British government would be worse than the EU bureaucracy. But in addition to actually making the case, he thinks Britain would jump from the EU to NAFTA (egads!).[3] Something to notice about both arguments, however, is that they are intensely reluctant arguments.
