The Guardian has the commentary on its web site – see link above.
We live in very strange times and are acting as a nation in ways the majority of us could surely never have envisioned and which are so obviously self-destructive.
A government of the far right, our leading opposition party following them into the Brexit voting lobbies, who would have thought it possible but it is happening.
I heard of a voter yesterday via the radio who was saying that they had no political home now as they wanted the Brexit of the Tories but the social policy of Jeremy Corbyn. Well yes that is odd except of course Jeremy’s MP’s (with a few notable exceptions) voted with the Tories over Brexit! But it was as though the consequences of Brexit were completely lost on that voter because Brexit is going to cost us so much economically that the social policies of Jeremy, like them or not/support them or not, will be unaffordable.
The more I see of Brexit the more I realise that the supporters of it really don’t know or in some cases even care what the consequences of it are. The rich and powerful who are manipulating these Brexiters know only too well though, as it is they who will benefit and its the poor, powerless and ordinary folk who will end up paying the price.
And what are we doing whipping up distrust and even hatred of our European neighbours, what good can possibly come from that except of course making the electorate fearful will get them to march behind our Bluekip Government and their lapdog main opposition party.
‘I fear Theresa May is negotiating us all towards Brexit disaster’ says Keir Starmer of Labour – well yes of course but it wouldn’t half help if Labour stopped voting for Brexit!
