It all started off with a resistance and intolerance towards the influx of EU immigrants into Britain. The situation resembled the Windrush generation of people who were invited to the UK to help contribute in building the infrastructure of what it is today. Unfortunately, some were asked to return after everything was said and done. In the recent discussions regarding immigration issues, I’m sure others may have been in a similar situation. Britain wanted back control of its country, but in order for this to happen, it could only foresee coming out of the EU to supposedly ‘take back control’ of the UK.
At the time, the former PM authorised a referendum in his wishful-thinking, confident that the majority of the votes would be in favour of leaving the EU. He sooner realised that the opposite was true, in that, while some were in favour, a lot were not. Very shortly, he resigned his post as PM, leaving others to clean up the mess and domino effects that was created.
It appeared as though the general public, as well as some of the MPs were led by wild emotions and intemperate outbursts, rather than by sober intelligence, because it does not befit one of sound judgement to think that such a mammoth procedure as to undo with the EU what has been done for decades, can be achieved from one day to the next, without an equal amount of baleful repercussions on the economy. We may have full usage of our eyes, but many of us still don’t see. We may be very intelligent, but we can also be intelligent fools.
One only has to look around them to see the negative impact and tumultuous effect of the actions generated by those in power, thinking they were or are doing everyone a great favour. One need not be a great scientist to ‘see’ what is happening and how it’s affecting not only the economy, but individuals’ day to day life. There is a saying ‘if it’s not broken, why fix it?’ Why bring the arm around the back of the neck to touch the nose, when it can simply be done from the front of the body? Why create more problems when there is already enough to deal with?
We wanted a united EU as there is a United States in America. Now we want a United Kingdom without an EU. Having realised what this would mean, we now want a ‘deal’ with our independence, because the unwise idea to leave the EU is one thing, but to leave with no deal, would be a historical event indeed, in manifesting the first fools’ paradise. Yet if this was the worse that could happen, it would still not be as abysmal as the catastrophe waiting at the end, if there is a ‘no deal’ outcome. We are too deep into the EU to pull out now and we’ve also recently raked up too many ants with the EU to stay. So now what? This is the result of having eyes, but not seeing the forest for the trees that have been our support system of shading us.
We don’t have all the resources to generate our own trees to shade every one of us, so how will this happen leaving of the EU, which for a great many, has been our shelter in many ways? It was a former member of the very Brexit party who voted to leave the EU, whose remark was to the effect that he never realised or understood that Britain relied greatly upon the Dover crossing for import and export of goods. We ask ourselves, ‘who is running our country?’ We would expect that someone of his stature would or should know such key information. Yet, it doesn’t surprise many of us, for the question as to how much a loaf of bread cost in the local supermarket was presented to the former PM who did not know the answer.
Imagine if there was a ‘no deal’ exit. How would the Dover crossing be strategized for trade with the EU, the world’s biggest market place? Whether via road or train for goods carriage from the EU into the UK, it involves the boarder – Dover. This is just one of the litany of adverse impacts for the UK. The implications of many policies made by our decision-makers, in a climate of capitalism is a recipe for disaster. The Great Britain upon which we pride ourselves could potentially become a crying Britain. We do not want to end up as a laughing stock for those who continue to embrace how to strategically do business.
It all calls for another referendum, knowing what the public knows now, for if we have a ‘deal-exit,’ it will do (only a few wealthy elite) some good, because at the end of the day we all are certainly not in the togetherness of it all, when only the rich and wealthy will survive and the rest of us suffer in austerity or simply drop dead because of it. With the new Benn Act in place, it prevents a single-handed decision to exit without a deal, as was the initial approach of a ‘no deal’ exit from the EU. It also appears that the idea to roll out 5G this month will remain an aspiration, as currently the UK does not have the infrastructure to support it. Not least, there are on-going discussions and disagreements between the US and China on this topic which implicates the UK, as well as discussions concerning the health risks it portends. Will the UK find alternative ways to support 5G. Likely…as it will always come down to money, money, money and profit over economy, what to speak of peoples’ health and well-being.
On this final note, I will be sharing some important information about health in due course and at some junction.
