MAY BLAMES IMMIGRANTS FOR BRITAIN'S ILLS AS SHE LAUNCHES TRAINCRASH BREXIT

   If you have the stomach to listen to it, below is a link to Theresa May's speech in full. No comfort at all here for EU citizens in Britain or for UK nationals in the EU. Her address is an hour of puffy, jingoistic rhetoric about the United Kingdom's new and glorious role in the world as an open, trading nation. A Brexiteers' wet dream.
   When not threatening the EU with a trade war, the prime minister finally establishes what 'Brexit means Brexit' means: a red, white and blue orgy of Powellite xenophobia. Curbing European immigration is to be our only priority, above economic prosperity, above social justice, above environmental sustainability. Like Farage, May lays the blame on European immigrants for the country's ills: low wages for the working classes, run-down infrastructures, stretched public services. 
    So, Britain will crash out of the EU, the single market, the customs union, the European Court of Justice. But reducing immigration is the magic bullet. Everything will be well if we can stem the tide of foreign invaders. Won't it?
