Today, Wednesday, Her Britannic Majesty's Government triggered "Article 50" and began the process of leaving the European Union. Mark joined both Neil Cavuto on Fox News and John Oakley on AM640 in Toronto to discuss Brexit, and the United Kingdom's recovery of its sovereignty. Click below to watch his conversation with Neil:
We're glad Theresa May has finally got around to initiating the UK's departure, because it gives Mark a sporting chance of winning his 2008 bet with economist Bryan Caplan:
I smell a bet. I propose the following terms to Steyn (or up to any three other people):If any current EU member with a population over 10 million people in 2007 officially withdraws from the EU before January 1, 2020, I will pay you $100. Otherwise, you owe me $100.
Any takers? (I've emailed this link to Mark Steyn's website, though I doubt it will actually filter up to him).
In fact, Steyn responded:
Throwing caution and my children's college fees to the wind, I've recklessly taken this guy's bet...
He's looking forward to that hundred bucks.
~Also today, Mark checked in with Elizabeth MacDonald on Fox Business for a not unrelated topic - "sanctuary cities" that prioritize the armies of the Undocumented over American citizens. Tomorrow, Thursday, join Mark for a brand new SteynPost - and a live stage presentation of The Mark Steyn Show this weekend.
