Whilst my level of sympathy for politicians is pretty low, it must be a little bit tricky for them.
17.4m said leave without a definition of what leave was (spare me any leave means leave comments. It’s lazy) and a proportion of that vote is saying if you dont leave in a way we want, we’re gonna smash up the country. Then you have 16.4m who want to remain, a million of which (spare me arguments on the actual number) took to the streets to re-enforce that view and now another 6m (spare me the ‘I signed it a million times’ bullshit) petitioning to cancel the whole thing. There’s big business and politicians on all sides of the argument.
There are now also proven illegalities that some want explored and others want ignored.
On top of all this, there’s a rise of the far-right and the far-left, both of which are to be frank, ****ing idiotic.
You have a small number of career Eurosceptics who despite wanting to leave the EU their entire lives, don’t seem to have a grip on how it works, why it works, the legalities, procedures and timescales needed to organise leaving. It’s truly bizarre. They had a ****ing lesson on what the Customs Union is and how it works despite having voted on it already. What the actual ****??
How exactly did the PM think this would turn out when she triggered Article 50 without even a smidgen of an idea of what the plan was??
Personally, I’ve reached a point of anger where if anyone does take to the streets to physically cause chaos, whichever side of the argument they’re on, I’ll be there to fight them. It feels like that’s all that’s left.
I’ve lost my job over this, my savings have now vanished, I have people in the pub telling me I need to ‘go home’ as i’m not welcome in the country anymore (born and ****ing bred here but my mother is asian). Truly I have nothing left other than to take a hammer to someone and at the minute, that feels like an inevitability.
