Brad Johnson on Boris Johnson and Brexit


0:00:00.000,0:00:06.750
Brad Johnson December 13th Boris Johnson

0:00:03.179,0:00:09.840
has just won the UK election and as they

0:00:06.750,0:00:11.849
use first-past-the-post although the

0:00:09.840,0:00:13.860
actual number of votes wasn’t that much

0:00:11.849,0:00:15.540
higher than Labor the number of seats

0:00:13.860,0:00:18.539
was dramatically higher which the same

0:00:15.540,0:00:20.699
way it works in Canada so they ended up

0:00:18.539,0:00:23.070
with a clear majority out of three forty

0:00:20.699,0:00:25.080
five seats out of whatever they needed

0:00:23.070,0:00:27.660
three twenty eight something I’m mad

0:00:25.080,0:00:29.789
numbers are off by half a dozen but they

0:00:27.660,0:00:33.030
definitely won a clear majority of the

0:00:29.789,0:00:36.059
seats and anti fight has already been on

0:00:33.030,0:00:39.420
the streets protesting and calling

0:00:36.059,0:00:42.390
everybody at Nazi at this point I think

0:00:39.420,0:00:45.960
that I think that a dog walker that

0:00:42.390,0:00:47.340
doesn’t also walk cats isn’t a so that’s

0:00:45.960,0:00:49.860
sure how much meaning that really has

0:00:47.340,0:00:52.500
but lots of video of anti felt they’re

0:00:49.860,0:00:55.260
picking fights screaming at police and

0:00:52.500,0:00:57.140
calling everybody a Nazi what’s your

0:00:55.260,0:00:59.760
what’s your take on the election results

0:00:57.140,0:01:02.840
well this is fabulously interesting this

0:00:59.760,0:01:06.900
happened last night in East Coast u.s.

0:01:02.840,0:01:10.170
Eastern Standard Time timeframe because

0:01:06.900,0:01:12.420
it’s six hours ahead in London later in

0:01:10.170,0:01:14.700
the day so new near 6:00 p.m. there so

0:01:12.420,0:01:17.310
we got we were call these results came

0:01:14.700,0:01:20.790
in last night for us so this morning

0:01:17.310,0:01:24.240
woke up to a very very jubilant of Boris

0:01:20.790,0:01:26.189
Johnson who has taken the majority as

0:01:24.240,0:01:27.810
you mentioned so now what that means of

0:01:26.189,0:01:30.659
course from his perspective is he just

0:01:27.810,0:01:32.640
now has the government as which has been

0:01:30.659,0:01:34.500
formed and they through the tradition go

0:01:32.640,0:01:37.590
to the Queen to get the approval or

0:01:34.500,0:01:39.329
blessing and he does not need to form a

0:01:37.590,0:01:41.400
coalition government which provide

0:01:39.329,0:01:43.380
British terms that is a big deal he goes

0:01:41.400,0:01:46.140
straight to having his government he has

0:01:43.380,0:01:49.079
enough votes to pass a majority assuming

0:01:46.140,0:01:52.380
that he keeps everyone within the party

0:01:49.079,0:01:54.990
in line for voting as party labor was

0:01:52.380,0:01:57.600
just destroyed which is what you

0:01:54.990,0:01:59.969
mentioned already they lost of many many

0:01:57.600,0:02:02.250
many many seats and they’re they’re all

0:01:59.969,0:02:03.780
stunned and speechless absolutely

0:02:02.250,0:02:05.820
speechless out of this thing

0:02:03.780,0:02:08.740
but one of the things it hasn’t gotten

0:02:05.820,0:02:13.330
talked about a lot is that within

0:02:08.740,0:02:16.870
the Conservatives they also won within

0:02:13.330,0:02:18.790
those seats and outlasted a lot of the

0:02:16.870,0:02:20.710
guys that are you know affectionately

0:02:18.790,0:02:23.620
called the remainders so everybody knows

0:02:20.710,0:02:26.770
brexit England leaving the European

0:02:23.620,0:02:29.470
Union and there was a large very vocal

0:02:26.770,0:02:32.500
important I should say powerful bloc

0:02:29.470,0:02:34.870
that did not want to leave and that was

0:02:32.500,0:02:38.080
within labour and also within the

0:02:34.870,0:02:41.500
Conservatives and all of those got taken

0:02:38.080,0:02:44.950
out so now Boris has his party far more

0:02:41.500,0:02:46.900
attuned to him and brexit all of the

0:02:44.950,0:02:49.390
people that were vocal vocally remain

0:02:46.900,0:02:52.330
errs got ousted other people got voted

0:02:49.390,0:02:56.140
in so very interesting it was a double

0:02:52.330,0:02:57.850
win for for the Prime Minister and now

0:02:56.140,0:03:00.820
he’s really in a position to go so

0:02:57.850,0:03:03.580
Breck’s it’s a done deal and they got

0:03:00.820,0:03:05.500
like like I said the remainders from all

0:03:03.580,0:03:10.030
of the parties all of the power blocks

0:03:05.500,0:03:13.510
that wanted to remain in the EU taken as

0:03:10.030,0:03:16.900
a whole were absolutely devastated wiped

0:03:13.510,0:03:20.080
out gutted so that message has been made

0:03:16.900,0:03:22.270
clear now they’re still going to fight

0:03:20.080,0:03:25.300
and then what you see with aunty fete is

0:03:22.270,0:03:28.330
part of that fight there’s there is this

0:03:25.300,0:03:30.190
large kind of coalition of overlapping

0:03:28.330,0:03:31.600
interests where you’ll see cooperation

0:03:30.190,0:03:33.820
between say and Tifa

0:03:31.600,0:03:37.450
and the extreme left and the political

0:03:33.820,0:03:39.490
scene in for the Brits and and so that’s

0:03:37.450,0:03:42.250
all part of it but now has a place to

0:03:39.490,0:03:45.040
operate and control and get money and

0:03:42.250,0:03:47.560
organize England’s going to be a much

0:03:45.040,0:03:49.060
tougher place for an Tifa which is why

0:03:47.560,0:03:50.230
you see them out on the street so

0:03:49.060,0:03:52.380
they’re doing what they could do now

0:03:50.230,0:03:54.940
while they can before they start getting

0:03:52.380,0:03:56.740
attacked London by the way it was one of

0:03:54.940,0:03:58.600
the places where that’s one of the

0:03:56.740,0:04:01.150
places where an teef is a little

0:03:58.600,0:04:04.330
stronger and that’s still a hotbed of

0:04:01.150,0:04:06.670
sort of leftist voters and people and

0:04:04.330,0:04:08.020
all of that so interesting that the rest

0:04:06.670,0:04:09.610
of England now those numbers haven’t

0:04:08.020,0:04:11.830
come out yet at least that I’ve seen but

0:04:09.610,0:04:14.860
the rest of England was was where this

0:04:11.830,0:04:17.830
vote was won London is still kind of a

0:04:14.860,0:04:19.180
safe haven for them if you will so very

0:04:17.830,0:04:20.799
interesting how this plays out Breck’s

0:04:19.180,0:04:23.319
it’s going to go forward those

0:04:20.799,0:04:26.080
the opposition was absolutely crushed if

0:04:23.319,0:04:28.419
they start agitating and want to have

0:04:26.080,0:04:30.550
more votes they’ll get their rear ends

0:04:28.419,0:04:32.949
handed to them once again and they will

0:04:30.550,0:04:35.349
continue to destroy their own power base

0:04:32.949,0:04:36.970
so it’s going to be interesting to see

0:04:35.349,0:04:39.400
are they smart enough to figure out that

0:04:36.970,0:04:41.199
that didn’t work and stop doing it are

0:04:39.400,0:04:43.259
they going to be morons like you tend to

0:04:41.199,0:04:45.490
see here in the United States with this

0:04:43.259,0:04:46.270
persecution over the President of the

0:04:45.490,0:04:48.190
United States

0:04:46.270,0:04:49.509
it keeps killing and killing and killing

0:04:48.190,0:04:52.690
but they keep doing thinking we’re

0:04:49.509,0:04:54.909
winning stuff let’s see if that happens

0:04:52.690,0:04:58.180
in England as well now one of the things

0:04:54.909,0:05:01.180
President Trump tweeted out as he does

0:04:58.180,0:05:03.340
that we’re gonna have a fabulous trade

0:05:01.180,0:05:05.380
deal set up with the bread’s this is

0:05:03.340,0:05:06.759
true they’re going to do this they’ve

0:05:05.380,0:05:08.949
already talked about it that will go

0:05:06.759,0:05:10.990
forward and what Trump has said is let’s

0:05:08.949,0:05:13.090
just do an agreement where there’s no

0:05:10.990,0:05:16.000
tariffs we just trade back and forth and

0:05:13.090,0:05:17.949
whatever makes sense to trade will trade

0:05:16.000,0:05:19.780
and if it’s you know too expensive to

0:05:17.949,0:05:22.750
ship and so you can’t compete you know

0:05:19.780,0:05:25.659
we don’t trade and I think that’s going

0:05:22.750,0:05:28.599
to appeal to everyone and it would be a

0:05:25.659,0:05:30.669
big deal and England is you know it’s

0:05:28.599,0:05:33.159
not a big economy compared to the United

0:05:30.669,0:05:36.819
States but it’s still a big economy by

0:05:33.159,0:05:39.340
European terms so and it can grow they

0:05:36.819,0:05:41.409
need a lot of help in that area so this

0:05:39.340,0:05:45.039
would be kind of the first step for

0:05:41.409,0:05:46.810
England to a more a capitalist system

0:05:45.039,0:05:49.449
and it would be very interesting to see

0:05:46.810,0:05:52.029
I think the long-term ramifications in

0:05:49.449,0:05:53.770
England are enormous I think it’s going

0:05:52.029,0:05:57.639
to go far beyond what anybody’s

0:05:53.770,0:06:00.430
envisioning now and England just as by

0:05:57.639,0:06:02.259
example housing is such a sore point

0:06:00.430,0:06:04.630
they’re so screwed up in housing since

0:06:02.259,0:06:06.400
before World War Two housing has been a

0:06:04.630,0:06:08.139
problem after World War Two with all the

0:06:06.400,0:06:09.759
bombing and destruction of course it’s

0:06:08.139,0:06:12.069
always been a problem and they’ve never

0:06:09.759,0:06:15.009
recovered from this sort of communal

0:06:12.069,0:06:17.440
socialist take on housing they’ve never

0:06:15.009,0:06:19.810
unleashed the economy to just go build

0:06:17.440,0:06:21.639
you don’t have enough houses turn people

0:06:19.810,0:06:23.889
loose to build them and they’ve never

0:06:21.639,0:06:26.440
done it instead they control it and dole

0:06:23.889,0:06:29.560
them out and they treat it’s handled

0:06:26.440,0:06:31.060
through socialism and you see all of

0:06:29.560,0:06:32.889
these communities and how they’re

0:06:31.060,0:06:33.910
organized they need to break the back of

0:06:32.889,0:06:36.070
all of that

0:06:33.910,0:06:37.600
turn the economy loose let the Brits go

0:06:36.070,0:06:39.970
out and those who know how to build

0:06:37.600,0:06:42.220
build and let those people who want to

0:06:39.970,0:06:44.170
buy a house buy a house and make them on

0:06:42.220,0:06:45.700
all the various prices expect price is

0:06:44.170,0:06:47.920
expensive and cheap and so on

0:06:45.700,0:06:49.300
instead the socials for years have been

0:06:47.920,0:06:51.430
running these laws in such a way that

0:06:49.300,0:06:52.810
it’s like if you have a vacation home

0:06:51.430,0:06:55.350
they’re going to take it away from you

0:06:52.810,0:06:57.670
and so they’ve just been doing just

0:06:55.350,0:07:01.540
immensely destructive things to the

0:06:57.670,0:07:03.460
economy and I think this deal as it goes

0:07:01.540,0:07:05.110
forward with the United States is going

0:07:03.460,0:07:06.970
to chip away at all of those things

0:07:05.110,0:07:10.120
because people will start to understand

0:07:06.970,0:07:12.220
where wealth comes from and doing

0:07:10.120,0:07:14.770
increased business and people coming up

0:07:12.220,0:07:18.850
with new ways of doing jobs that’s where

0:07:14.770,0:07:20.440
money is created and it’s it’s supported

0:07:18.850,0:07:22.810
with the banking system that loans

0:07:20.440,0:07:25.120
people money that have ideas they start

0:07:22.810,0:07:27.070
the business it’s a success they hire

0:07:25.120,0:07:29.860
more people they make more money that is

0:07:27.070,0:07:32.110
where wealth is created that’s where the

0:07:29.860,0:07:34.870
wealth of the United States came from

0:07:32.110,0:07:36.490
and that is pure capitalism and that’s

0:07:34.870,0:07:38.710
what we need to unleash in England

0:07:36.490,0:07:41.080
that’ll fix the housing and the job

0:07:38.710,0:07:42.640
market and all of these ills that are

0:07:41.080,0:07:45.400
that are that have faced England and

0:07:42.640,0:07:48.550
made their economy shrink and be not as

0:07:45.400,0:07:50.110
not very strong I think we will see the

0:07:48.550,0:07:52.230
beginning of fixing all of that I think

0:07:50.110,0:07:55.030
Boris Johnson understands this

0:07:52.230,0:07:57.190
understands the ramifications and that’s

0:07:55.030,0:07:59.290
why I’m fully convinced he’s immediately

0:07:57.190,0:08:01.060
going to jump into this deal with Trump

0:07:59.290,0:08:02.800
and I like I said I would you know I

0:08:01.060,0:08:05.380
would say there’s a very good chance

0:08:02.800,0:08:07.420
that the deal will be simply free-trade

0:08:05.380,0:08:09.730
in the sense of no tariffs we’ll just

0:08:07.420,0:08:11.380
trade and you know if it’s better for us

0:08:09.730,0:08:13.810
to buy from you that or make it here

0:08:11.380,0:08:15.490
that’s let the economy run the run the

0:08:13.810,0:08:18.160
deal which is is the way it should be

0:08:15.490,0:08:20.380
done so I think it’s deeply significant

0:08:18.160,0:08:22.450
and also here in the United States it’s

0:08:20.380,0:08:25.960
a good deal to have the trade both

0:08:22.450,0:08:28.180
economies will grow but also the freedom

0:08:25.960,0:08:32.289
movement that you’re starting to see

0:08:28.180,0:08:37.060
across Europe is now going to blossom we

0:08:32.289,0:08:39.280
our friend Rasmus paladin in in Denmark

0:08:37.060,0:08:41.440
is is is trying to go against basically

0:08:39.280,0:08:43.570
the socialist movement he’s gaining in

0:08:41.440,0:08:45.650
popularity we have a similar movement in

0:08:43.570,0:08:48.860
Norway starting to gain pop

0:08:45.650,0:08:50.690
you’re seeing this resurgence in England

0:08:48.860,0:08:52.220
and that is going to spread to some

0:08:50.690,0:08:56.360
other European countries there’s been

0:08:52.220,0:08:57.950
talk of these things in Italy so I think

0:08:56.360,0:08:59.720
it’s going to be very significant in

0:08:57.950,0:09:02.210
that sense and there will be ripples

0:08:59.720,0:09:05.090
that will work themselves out word in

0:09:02.210,0:09:07.220
Europe and Europe is under assault under

0:09:05.090,0:09:09.470
assault from Russia

0:09:07.220,0:09:12.980
using energy as a weapon they weaponized

0:09:09.470,0:09:15.470
gas natural gas for example for heating

0:09:12.980,0:09:17.990
and oil and these things and that’s

0:09:15.470,0:09:20.630
where they have gained a lot of control

0:09:17.990,0:09:23.360
over Europe and on the other side you’ve

0:09:20.630,0:09:25.760
got Turkey Russia’s old adversary who is

0:09:23.360,0:09:27.950
now using other political pressure and

0:09:25.760,0:09:30.380
working with Muslim Brotherhood and all

0:09:27.950,0:09:32.960
that to also put pressure on Europe so

0:09:30.380,0:09:35.480
Europe is a battleground and Paris of

0:09:32.960,0:09:37.550
course is attempting to take greater

0:09:35.480,0:09:40.490
control of the EU to establish

0:09:37.550,0:09:43.130
themselves as a as a greater power bloc

0:09:40.490,0:09:45.920
within the entire EU so the forces are

0:09:43.130,0:09:47.870
all aligned fighting each other now it’s

0:09:45.920,0:09:49.640
it’s going to be a very interesting few

0:09:47.870,0:09:51.920
years watching how this all plays out in

0:09:49.640,0:09:55.280
Europe does Russia gain ascendancy does

0:09:51.920,0:09:57.650
turkey gain ascendancy does Paris gain

0:09:55.280,0:10:00.680
ascendancy does the free market and

0:09:57.650,0:10:04.040
capitalism gain of Senden see and that

0:10:00.680,0:10:05.630
would be the kind of longer shot but I

0:10:04.040,0:10:07.640
think the odds are going up with this

0:10:05.630,0:10:09.980
deal so that’s where I would put my

0:10:07.640,0:10:12.140
money is is hoping that that’s the the

0:10:09.980,0:10:13.820
horse that wins in this in this race so

0:10:12.140,0:10:16.780
the beginning of a very interesting

0:10:13.820,0:10:16.780
future for Europe
