QUOTES OF THE DAY –
“This is not my party,”
George Will quoted from his speech before the Federalist Society late last week –
Sunday – June 26 – George Will, said Sunday that he changed his voter registration to “unaffiliated” 23 days ago and has left the Republican Party because of Donald Trump. “After Trump went after the ‘Mexican’ judge from northern Indiana then (House Speaker) Paul Ryan endorsed him, I decided that in fact this was not my party anymore,” Will said on “Fox News Sunday.” (Trump Tweeted Sunday that Will was overrated.)
‘Will has long been a harsh critic of Trump. Just earlier this month, he told Fox News that Trump is a “real amateur in politics.” “He seems to confuse the enthusiasm of the crowds in front of him at the moment in the high school auditorium with the larger electorate,” he said. “Whereas, in fact, crowds are definitely not a representative selection of the American people.”
Will said he’d joined the Republican Party in 1964, inspired by Arizona Sen. Barry Goldwater, a founder of the conservative movement and a key figure in the party then. “I joined it because I was a conservative, and I leave it for the same reason: I’m a conservative,” Will said. “The long and the short of it is, as Ronald Reagan said when he changed his registration, ‘I did not leave the Democratic Party; the Democratic Party left me”.

“We the undersigned call upon [the UK] Government to implement a rule that if the Remain or Leave vote is less than 60%, based on a turnout less than 75%, there should be another referendum.”
A petition, set up by William Oliver Healey.
“From Brexit to #Regrexit — an online petition demanding a second referendum on Britain’s decision to leave the EU has passed 3 million signatures. By Saturday afternoon, more than 2 million people had signed the petition on the official UK Parliament website. That number takes it well over the 100,000-signature threshold needed to force a debate on the issue by members of Parliament. A rush to sign the petition caused the website to crash temporarily due to the high volume of traffic.
Basically Brits more than likely would like to re-set the ‘back in time machine’ to Wednesday and do it all over again… JUST SAYING!
Can the referendum result somehow be overturned?
Britain is coming to terms with its decision to leave the European Union after Thursday’s dramatic referendum. Here are some of the questions that are doing the rounds in the U.K. this weekend:
Possible, but unlikely.
