It’s decided then. We are to leave the EU. Or… is it?
The Remain camp have set up a petition and got all their faithful little drones to sign it. They are asking the Government to change the rules of the referendum that we just had, so that the Leave side would have to get 70% of the vote to win.
The Remain side only have to get 31% to win under that system, but that part is being quietly ignored. There are videos appearing claiming to show people who voted ‘Leave’ but who are now regretting it. It’s clearly propaganda bollocks but the drones will fall for it.
Okay, it was a close vote but Scotland lost an independence vote by the same amount and that was the end of that… or was it?
The Spiteful Nannying Party are pushing for a quick independence referendum. Yes, another one. They want to stay in the EU and like the EU, they want to keep voting until they get the answer they want. Which is why I won’t be at all surprised if we have to have another in/out referendum. In which I will vote ‘out’ again. Might even add ‘Look, I told you once, and this is the last time I’m telling you’ to the form.
Scotland was pegged as mostly voting Remain and the SNP think that if they have an independence referendum now, they’ll win it. They might. The Scots seem to like being in the EU for no logical reason I can fathom since few of them know what it does or what it’s for.
The ones I spoke to here voted to stay because, well, it seems to be okay as it is so why take a risk?
If you never take any risks you stagnate. You cannot progress. Some risks work out and some don’t. Just keep at it. A life without risk isn’t life. It’s just an existence and for me, that will never be enough. Oh I’ll never be massively rich but I always manage to make just enough to live on. Sometimes a little bit extra.
The Scots might well vote for an ‘independence’ that leaves them under the control of the EU as long as they don’t ever realise it means taking on the Euro. Oh yes, it does. No more of that cherished Scottish money because the Scottish pound is of equal value with the Bank of England pound now. Independence means you can’t use Sterling any more and the only thing the EU offers is the Euro. And you won’t be allowed to put thistles on it.
Vote for independence *snork* and you go right back to the situation you were in before the UK voted to leave the EU. It’s not the English who are in charge now, you know. The UK just voted for real independence, and Scotland wants to jump right back into the servitude we escaped. Think it’ll be Scottish oil and Scottish fisheries? It’ll be EU oil and anyone can drill for it. The Scottish fishing fleet will continue to be decimated because it was never the English who did that. Suckers. The English will have independence and you won’t, and you’ll vote for that. Irony overload.
Doesn’t bother me. I’m Welsh, I can easily move somewhere else because I’m an irritating bastard who isn’t welcome anywhere. I’ll pick somewhere that doesn’t have that Euro nonsense. It’s doomed to a massive collapse and I don’t want to have any when it happens.
The Cameroid resigned. He didn’t really need to do that. It makes him look like he can’t actually manage to be Prime Monster of an independent nation. He needs people to tell him what to do. Anyway, he’s going, and the word on the street is that Boris the Undercouch Spider will replace him.
Stop press – I have just been informed by Boris the Undercouch Spider that I have confused him with someone who looks like a cheap mop head on a badly inflated beach ball. Well, these things happen.
Cameroid wasn’t too bad really. He looks like he should be selling toasters for Tefal and the EU kicked him around like a pig’s bladder in a group of Victorian street urchins but he never plumbed the depths of Blair and Mandelson. Those two could out-slime a bucket of slugs… each.
Still, he’s gone but we still have Gideon the hotel bible guy in charge of an economy he doesn’t understand and we are likely to get the wall crawler as our front man to the world next. It will make the world think of the UK as a big top with the clowns in charge, but that’s a pretty accurate assumption at the moment. Let’s hope it changes soon. We can but hope.
The result of the referendum is apparently not binding on the government but if they choose to ignore it or to hold a second one it will have some seriously bad results. Not just in this country.
France, Germany and the Netherlands are likely to go for a referendum too. If they see that their democratic votes can be ignored they might not bother with the peaceful way at all. It could turn out to be unpleasant.
Maybe the Cameroid is sensible to get the hell out of the way. I would.
