Response to Bad Dog (Original post)

17. No, I'm saying what I said.

Britain would be better off without the EU. At least, all the European countries that continue to control their own currencies are better off than those that don't.

I'm not saying Trump is right about everything, but he's right about some things.

I never said anything to suggest I'm against free trade. (What I am against is free trade premised on lowering labor, environmental, and other standards to the lowest common denominator – that's neither inevitable nor necessary.)

I'm not sure whether the EU helped drive the migration crisis, but all of our failure to address the causes more effectively have allowed it to happen.
