On this edition of Parallax Views, British author and commentator T.J. Coles joins us to discuss the UK's controversial new Prime Minister Boris Johnson in the midst of Brexit. Since June 23rd, 2016, when the U.K. voted in favor of a referendum to leave the European Union, Britain has experienced a sustained period of political turbulence. Who was behind the Brexit campaign? Who were the forces opposing it? What does the British exit from the United Kingdom entail? And, of course, how did this happen? T.J. Coles, author of The Great Brexit Swindle: Why the Mega-Rich and Free Market Fanatics Conspired to Force Britain from the European Union, provides interesting answers to these questions while also unpacking the ideas of neoliberalism, the state of democracy in Britain, criticisms of the EU's technocratic nature, the negative media portrayals of Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn, and parallels between the political economies of the U.K. and the U.S.
