Vulture interview - Daniel Radcliffe: 'Brexit is really scary'

The results from the EU referendum votes are in today: Brexit, which means that Britain will leave the European Union.

Daniel talked with Vulture about it earlier this week.
Brexit is really scary. I obviously want us to stay. There are economic reasons — but the main reason is that in this era, divided we fall. C'mon guys, let's stick together. The idea of nationhood is one that I can kind of take or leave. I am very proud of being English and I'm very proud of everything England is giving the world that I am associated with. But it's not an actual — what does [Kurt] Vonnegut call them in Cat's Cradle? He calls them 'granfalloons,' where there's a name for a fake bond. Because we're all British, we're all part of the same country. But people in France aren't that fucking different. We're all just human beings and that should be the thing that I think is celebrated about us rather than tiny, petulant differences. But it's really scary. Similar to the Trump thing, I feel like we started off being like, 'It'll never happen. Don't worry about it.' And now it's like, 'Oh no, we could not be apart of Europe' in what is it—a few days? I've already sent in my postal vote. So I'm done. I've voted.

  1. Per una volta, caro Dan, non siamo d'accordo.... lui è giovane, e come tutti i giovani, giustamente parla dal punto di vista degli ideali: e per quelli, anch'io vorrei l'europa unita, e blablabla. Ma ormai ci siamo resi conto che questa europa non è l'europa sognata dai fondatori, un'ideale comunità di uguali, ecc.: questa è un europa di banchieri, finanzieri, burocrati, dove c'è "chi è più uguale degli altri", e chi comanda e conta di più, e tiene tutti in pugno. E così non è giusto!! E' meglio rovesciare il tavolo, e casomai rifare tutto daccapo, ma su ben altre basi!
