I really do not understand what on earth is going on. Why are we having this referendum? Heaven help us if the end vote is for out. Boris Johnson seems to believe the stories he made up when he was a journalist in Brussels. And yes, it is well known they were untrue, but that didn’t stop an audience who wanted to despise the EU from lapping them up.
I can’t understand why some of the same people who declared we were Better Together when it came to the referendum in Scotland, should somehow think we’d be better turning our backs on the rest of the EU to go it alone. I’ve left it too late to emigrate. It’s not long until I get my Freedom Pass, and the prospect of spending the last decades of my life in a country which defines itself by hostility to outsiders and deep suspicion of ‘foreigners’ despite being one of the most invaded and diverse places in the world does not bring a smile to my face.
Maybe London can declare unilateral independence, because I bet that in London the vote will be to stay. Though maybe BoJo will again exert his dodgy charm over voters who think he’s a ‘character’, ‘funny’, ‘different’ and irresponsibly put their X in the box for the side he supports without even thinking about the consequences.
Though for support, read side he thinks is going to help him become Prime Minister. Anyone who thinks Boris is not thinking first and foremost of his own ambitions, however much he clothes them in bumbly, tousled hair disguises, needs to think again. And look at the others on team Brexit: IDS, Gove, Farage, Galloway, Le Pen, Putin. Ugh.
And tonight the news suggests Donald Trump could be on his way to the White House.
Heaven help us all.
