Brexit Fairy Story: Britain Quits the 'Animal Farm'

Brexit Fairy Story: Britain Quits the 'Animal Farm'

British voters, primarily those outside of London, voted to leave the European Union. 

London remained loyal to the European Union.

As I see it, the rural peasants revolted against the urban ruling class who had insidiously usurped power and crassly manipulated the high ideals of the European Union primarily for their own benefit. 

It all reminded me of George Orwell’s book “Animal Farm.”

As the story begins, all the animals get together to overthrow their common enemy, the farmer. The working class animals are portrayed as gullible, loyal, and hardworking. The typical working class. 

The pigs make a claim to being the brain workers representing the intelligentsia class. As the story develops, they hypocritically manipulate the rules to take control of all the other animals. They convince the other animals that they are taking over for the good of every animal.

In fairly short order, the farm falters and, the working class animals are cold, hungry, and overworked. The pigs eat well. Napoléon Pig says that he doesn’t want to eat all this food, but he is doing it for the good of the other animals.

The Bureaucrats in Brussels, their fellow politicians, and the financial elitist who support them all eat well.  All the rest of the people are suffering.

In Animal Farm, the visionary ideal of equality becomes twisted and distorted.  It is summed up by Orwell in the words, “all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”

Animal Farm ends with Napoléon Pig allying himself with the human farmers.  The common animals looking into the farmhouse window at this party of elites no longer can distinguish between the pigs and the human beings.

Fortunately for Britain, their story doesn’t look like it will have this same ending. 

The British working class decided that they had enough with being oppressed by the EU.

Of course, the London elitists didn't want to leave the EU. Being British was not as important to them as being European.  As an integral part of the EU ruling class, they were getting their share of the benefits. 

The supporters for remaining in the EU, the self-anointed intelligentsia that they think they are, thought it inconceivable that the docile non-London peasants would ever have enough brain power to overthrow their dominance.  

Brexit proved that they were not so smart after all.

I like stories with happy endings.
