  • Brexit: It’s time to accept reality and fight for a progressive future outside the EU

    It’s done and dusted. The Great British public has spoken, and they have voted—narrowly—to leave the European Union.

And now it’s time for all of my fellow leftists to shut the fuck up and fall in line. Hillary Clinton has reached the number of delegates required to clinch the […]
