WAF: Norman Foster lashes out at the ‘madness of Brexit’


That isn't the point. The entire point is that the European Government is unelected, and ignores its elected parliament. The UK has no say in how it is governed, and the future agenda by the bureaucrats and the European Commission, is to become a Politburo dictatorship. Who wants to be a slave to that club? The people who voted for Brexit are not isolationists or anti-european; they just want to control their own destiny and identity. They are not worried about skills and talents coming to UK, or for our talents to work abroad.They also want to open up the rest of the world to us, and break down barriers. The Great European Plan to destroy nations and just make them regions subservient to Brussels, Strasbourg, or wherever they build these stupid buildings, was never voted on by any of us across Europe. Brexit or no Brexit, Foster + Partners will do fine -worldwide. Brexit will have no true impact on them. They currently have 10 offices worldwide, I suspect this speech was what he thought his Berlin audience wanted to hear, and would have been completely different if he was speaking to a WAF Banqueting Hall in NYC or Shanghai.
