I tell you what, now the old Brexit thing has settled in, I can’t help but think what a genius piece of political maneuvering we’ve just witnessed Boris engineer. Somehow, he’s managed to convert the working class into believers in him. The ex-mayor of London has the rest of nation thinking he’s for them. It’s quite incredible. I mean, what the hell has Jeremy Corbyn done here? All those young people who went to his conferences must feel pretty let down by his tepid remain attempt… when you can’t take advantage of political disharmony on a nuclear scale like this, well, it does make you wonder the point in his existence.
Well, well, well. Can’t say there have been many days where I’ve been more disappointed to be British. Out of Europe. We Brexited. It’s game over. No more unity. Really weird feeling as I’ve always felt very much a European citizen over just pure play British.
The working class and the older generations voted themselves into a recession. Voted themselves into the arms of elites like Micheal Gove and Boris Johnson. Voted to solve the problems we have through isolation.
It’s a big day in the UK today. We vote on whether we want to be part of the European Union. Massive on so many levels. The decision will impact everything if it goes the way of leave. I’m remain. This utopic view of rebuilding the empire by isolating ourselves and shutting down freedom of movement feels absurd to me. Handing the keys to the country to a guy riding around on big red bus with a big fat lie plastered on the side doesn’t sit well with me. Britain is stronger in.
