Britain Votes to Leave the European Union

The United Kingdom has voted to leave the European Union.  Heritage Foundation expert Nile Gardiner is on the ground in the UK watching events unfold.

Gardiner , the head of the Heritage Foundation’s  Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom, explains:

“This is a victory for sovereignty, economic freedom and self-determination. A sovereign Britain will be a stronger partner for the United States and a more powerful force on the world stage. Brexit is good for Britain, Europe and America and is a cause for great celebration. “

You can find his latest op-ed for The Daily Signal on Brexit—and why Americans should celebrate this historic event here.
