Philosopher John Gray on Brexit: positive language
A friend just sent me this BBC 4 link to John Gray's assessment of the situation with Britain and the EU. Gray seems to support my sense that at some point in the future there is going to be a reentry or reenetry-like negotiation. I can only think there are bright
people in the EU and the UK who want to hold things together, who will
accommodate the British exit vote, and
who will institute reforms that possibly needed to be made anyway. Listening to his observations, I sense that Gray is using the kind of language that could help bring people together. Please click HERE to listen to Gray's assessment.
