If Britons vote to remain in the European Union in a referendum set for June 23, 2016, Britain will lose its culture, along with its political and economic independence.
Prime Minister David Cameron, who favors Britain remaining in the EU, represents U.S.S. Starship Enterprise Captain Jean-Luc Picard. In one episode of Star Trek, Picard was captured by the Borg, assimilated into the Borg and renamed Locutus. He then told his former crew of 500 that the Borg would assimilate them, that resistance was futile.
But London Mayor Boris Johnson, Cameron’s Conservative Party rival, said no. He is the William Riker, first officer on board the Enterprise, who saved his crew and recovered Locutus from the Borg. Medical staff on the Enterprise restored Locutus to his human form, Captain Jean-Luc Picard.
If Britain remains in the EU, British culture will be irrevocably lost. Germany, France, and faceless bureaucrats in Brussels will increasingly take charge of everything British until Britain has been completely assimilated into Europe.
Perhaps Islamic terrorist attacks in Paris and Brussels have awakened Britons to the danger of remaining in the EU. A poll taken in mid-March 2016 showed for thefirst time that Brexit voters outnumbered Bremain voters by 43-41%.
If Britain exits then EU, but Scotland chooses independence to join the EU, at least exit will preserve English culture. So long as there are Englishmen, “There’ll Always Be An England.”
