Some rambling, alcohol fuelled thoughts that may not be agreed with.
Today, the United Kingdom left the European Union. And for what? You know, I still don’t know why this referendum has taken place. Why do the establishment want us out? Immigration or national pride? Or both? National pride? Pictures of bowling greens and strawberries and cream. In an ideal 1950s chocolate box world maybe.
Frankly this result is shit. I’m boiling with rage. I mean, it’s fabulous that Cameron will no longer be PM. But BORIS COULD BE THE PRIME MINISTER! This is not good. This is a man who is a laughing stock. The image he has is that of a buffoon. What would people across the world think? Jesus wept I’d rather have Theresa May as PM.
It’s not all just about image of one silly man. Frankly, I’m scared. I’m scared that MY future has been decided by the older generation. And, you know, democracy is a marvellous thing. We are lucky to have it. Lots of countries and nations across the world don’t have this privilege. On Facebook especially, I’ve seen status after status all saying the same thing – immigration. “People coming over here and taking our jobs”. Blame this government for the lack of jobs, especially in the North East. But what I do agree on is that we are always forgotten. To be honest the whole of the North is forgotten. London is not the centre of the universe. But to get back to the older generation, the people I saw yesterday were just the type to vote leave. You could tell by looking at them. I can just hear them saying “send the lot of them back” which is disgusting. They live in their own little world and don’t think outside the box. Ok, people are set in their ways. But to vote leave because of something that probably won’t affect them is concerning and downright wrong.
Oh and re jobs, etc, PLEASE do not get me started on the Northern Powerhouse that doesn’t exist. The only Powerhouse I know of is the gay club in Newcastle.
But I am scared. Bigotry has triumphed. We are stepping into Nigel Farage’s Britain of ignorance and xenophobia. And not only that, what about security? What about neighbourliness with our European friends and nations? That’s now gone.
With a deep sigh, I (like everyone) now have to trundle on with my life and accept what has happened. There’s nothing we can do about it. I’m still boiling with rage though.
Taking back control? Sod off. The elite and establishment still control our lives.
