A note from the editors: The people of Britain have spoken. They have joined the conservative tide sweeping the Western world. The EU socialists, who thrived on edicts that no one ratified, the big financial institutions that fed off a welfare state that knows no limits, have been defeated. The Muslim jihadists will now be turned back at Britain’s borders. This is a first-step victory for liberty and for a civilization that has been one of the glories not only of the West but of the world at large.
