Politics – Pro-Brexiters claim own Independence Day


Proponents of Brexit have looked to the United States for inspiration in claiming their own Independence Day. “If we vote to ‘Leave,’ and take back control, we believe that this Thursday could be our country’s Independence Day!” former London Mayor, Boris Johnson, a leader of the Brexit movement, told an audience of thousands in the days leading up to the June 23 referendum. Nigel Farage, an advocate of the Leave camp, said a day after the vote, “There’s now 183 countries around the world that have independence days. What we did yesterday was become 184th.”
