“Now is the winter of our discontent “. That Shakespeare chap.
It doesn’t really matter anymore about what influenced and contributed to the facts surrounding why the majority of the people of Great Britain voted to leave the EU. The point was that it was a democratic vote. (Ha) Leave won. (Haha) remain was kicked in their ill prepared, unprotected testicles. (Hehehe)
However, here are the factors as I see them, and remember, I’m not politically minded, but I have a voice (I think)
Leave voted leave to end the overpowering, totalitarian influence the EU has over the laws passed in this fractured United Kingdom. Let’s face it, who on gods green earth would even dream up a zero hour contract for people who want to actually earn money to live a half decent life. It’s a brilliant and callous way for the government to fiddle the unemployment figures!!
Point of fact. My eldest son is on one of those forged in the bowels of hell ‘Zero hour’ contracts. One week he may work 4 hours, leaving him destitute. The next week he may work 16 hours, the following week 10 hours! I’m pretty sure he is only one of tens of thousands who are being butt fucked by the government, but it’s a perfect and outrageously legal way of fiddling the unemployment figures! It’s an ‘I’m alright Jack’ scenario that infests this country (Nice one EU) It’s as if the government have a constant case of explosive diarrhoea, and the people on zero hour contracts are their very cheap but effective toilet paper!!
Leave voted to end the overwhelming amount of immigrants entering the U.K. which not least, has and is contributing to the NHS creaking and dying under the relentless pressure to provide a faster, better response to the growing number of people who are in dire need of vital treatment and emergency assistance. The waiting times for people in need of doctors and hospital appointments has gone through the roof.
Leavers voted leave because they see a free market and free trade as an independent way forward to boost the country economically. But even more than that, leave voters regard handing over around about 8 billion a year (Estimate) as a criminal misuse of the tax payers money! No wonder we have ex-service men living and sleeping on the streets all over the U.K., especially evident in the ‘Financial heart’ of London. Disgusting, ridiculous and shameful!!
The majority voted leave as a way of protesting against the elitist, corrupt establishment who time and time again ignore the will of the people, the very same people whose taxes keep them in their ‘I’m alright Jack’ bubble. It’s ironic that the same people who were voted into their constituencies, who were given the job of becoming the people’s voice in parliament, blatantly ignore the people’s voice! The shameless disregard of a democratic vote to leave is ironically the perfect example that democracy does not actually exist in the U.K. Unless of course, democracy directly benefits the elitist establishment.
Of course, it’s difficult to blame the elitist for wanting to remain in the European Union, after all, who wants to move away from a system that makes you richer. The mega rich footballer doesn’t play for a team who pays them less money to play for them, he plays for the highest bidder, at times at the expense of his own integrity. However, it only makes the rich more powerful, and in direct contrast, the poor without a voice and therefore, inconsequential.
The bottom line is this. The leave vote won, the people’s voice won. But the fact that the U.K. has not and probably will not leave the EU is absolute proof that democracy is dead, but then again , it never really lived in this country! Did it?
Liberty, Fraternity, equality. Load of bollocks. Bring out the guillotine!
