Gardiner: ‘This Is All About Sovereignty and Self-Determination for the British People’
TAPPER: "Nile, you support the leave movement. Britain lost more than $100 billion in wealth today. Did you expect this kind of reaction from the markets?"
GARDINER: "Yeah, I think this reaction was expected because the markets responding to what they see as uncertainty. I think the markets will rise again and I think a brexit is good for Britain for the European Union and for the United States as well. This is all about sovereignty and self-determination for the British people and I believe that great Britain, unfree from the shackles of the European union, will be a resurgent on the world stage and it’s in the interest of, for example, the Germans and the French to negotiate a good agreement with the United Kingdom. There are a lot of common interests at stake. The interest of the united States to sign a uk free trade deal. But this is all about British people retaking control here. Control of their borders, the right to negotiate free trade agreements, their right to decide 100% their own laws, their own legislation. It’s all about the rights of British courts to have supremacy. The British people have had enough and voted in massive numbers yesterday to leave the eu and that’s a good thing."
