Don’t panic! Don’t panic!
are the stars dimming over Europe?
let’s not panic. It’s not a crisis!
It’s a joke combined with a bad dream.
Unfortunately its not and a majority of people in the UK have voted to leave the EU.
The consequences are of course, completely unknown but in my darker thoughts I worry that:
- the austerity focussed Tories will use this opportunity to shift the whole country even more into the nether regions of neo-liberalism
- this will lead to the end of the United Kingdom
- the EU itself may unravel and halt its progress in helping create a peaceful Europe since the last world war.
But I’m naturally an optimist and usually see the beer glass half full. In that case this might be a wonderful opportunity resulting in a new election, different leaders and a rejigging of the political map on the lines of the political movements we’re seeing in Southern Europe in Spain, Italy and Greece.
I see brighter stars… Participative democracy, people’s increased engagement, new inspirational leaders and the sack for the elitist gits who are our current political representatives who have the riches to surf through this turmoil and probably just see it as one big joke!
