This will be my last status on the EU Referendum.
Those of us who were REMAIN, and those of us who are progressives generally, NEED TO STOP TALKING DOWN to the other side, that sows division and there is nothing, nada, zip that those in power like more. UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL. What’s done is done. The people have spoken. The fact that most voted on what you consider spurious reasons is irrelevant. It’s a bit like script feedback, when lots of people identify a problem, it’s because there IS a problem. It may not be the problem they’ve spotted, but nonetheless shit’s not right. The UK has been doomed since Blair decided to invade Iraq against people’s wishes. That coupled with post 9/11 paranoia and the financial crash has seen people lose their faith in our system and every government since Major’s has blamed the EU for our problems. Personally I’m devastated by the OUT vote, but I really don’t see how giving people shit for voting the way they did will make it better, it will just breed more resentment between US when really it is a catastrophic failure of leadership that has led us to this point. My only hope, going forward, is that people continue to engage in the political process, use your vote, hold the Powers That Be to account.
Peace.

  1. We are headed for a period of repression that will be the modern equivalent of Nazi Germany. When petrol bombing Mosques and racist murders become daily occurrences, what do we do then? This is truly the Second Dark Age

      That’s the worst case scenario, and may yet come to pass… As someone with brown skin I am acutely aware of this. But I need to remain optimistic. LOVE conquers all. x
