What is the “BREXIT”???   What happens now?

Dr. John O’Rorke is back  to help us clear up some questions surrounding the facts about the U.K. vote to leave the European Union.  Dr. O’Rorke guides through how the current economic times and changes in party alignment caused the voter to decide to exit as a simple solution.  With this comparative discussion I hope that this episode will help clear up and shine some light on the political process across the pond.
