Campers, it’s been quite a while since I took the time to sit down and write anything about the world or indeed, anything else. It always comes and goes as to what I’m doing where and why etc. but then things fall apart.
However, given the importance of today, I still wanted to take a small amount of time out to write up a few thoughts about the General Election taking place in the United Kingdom today, and where things could end up for everyone in 2020 and beyond. Sadly this is quite a serious post and thoughts of which I do not share lightly.
Anyone who will have glanced at a lot of the Twitter feed over the past few years will have seen I don’t agree at all (to put it lightly) as to where things have gone in the UK. It’s been basically a horror story lurching from one sorry mess to the next, truly beginning in 2015 when the Conservative Party gained a surprise majority to govern. It was then that we had the Brexit campaign forced down our collective throats and in essence where the lies, trechery and deceit truly began.
It didn’t take long for the lies to unravel and divisions to override pretty much everything else ongoing that would have made any difference to anyone’s lives. The lack of accountablity and human decency has pretty gone beyond whatever we could have come up with in terms of jokes. If any of this was ever pitched as a TV series or film before 2019, it would have been laughed at as being completly unrealistic.
The choice for local MPs in the 2019 GE which everyone wanted / didn’t want / no idea what they wanted, is pretty bleak in a lot of places. Why is that?
Well, for a start, we’re having the wrong vote. This should have been the second referendum vote to properly decide if Brexit is truly what is wanted. Because Brexit will override everything else for years to come, should it go ahead. The chance for people to be 100% sure should have been given, but no. We as the little people, who are only needed to votes or money to give in tax were denied that. The best way to ensure Brexit truly begins, instead of being delayed several times already, was a GE. To give a direct vote on the single issue which truly has caused untold misery, would mean it could all stop.
I will never know what the prize of Brexit ever is to everyone, because it’s gone from being a wonderful thing to something we’re being told we should just get it over with. Not exactly the best endorsement to have for such a major change to millions of people’s lives is it? It’s not helped by the fact all of what was said was 100% bulls*it.
So we’re here at a GE. What’s the best outcome? A Hung Parliament. Again. Again Again actually, given that’s how most of this decade has been already so far. There’s only been two years where one party had a majority and look at the massive cock-up they caused then.
Why? Because no one party have covered themselves in any major glory throughout all this god awful nightmare. They simply do not deserve a clear majority. Not one party.
In fact it’s gone further in that the lies, trechery and deceit is so damned toxic, you can now only fear as to what the bastards would unleash on us if they were to get away with it, even after being found out. So if they are forced time and time again to be held to account, all because of the one damned issue which screwed things up, they will have to actually allow the second vote, where then we have the final proper oppontity to stop all this madness and finally get back to other things which matter more.
The world is messed up, and it’s going to get worse. It will involve working together to resolve various things and actual tough humanine choices to be made. We don’t need the B word buggering everything else up in the meantime because should it actually go through, it will be at least a decade of insanity and suffering. AT LEAST!
Let’s be honest, who among us have gotten tired of having to worry about food or medicine shortages or no longer being able to afford healthcare if certain events happen as a result of Brexit? The fact that this situation is even a remote possiblity means this is just utter madness. There’s a myraid of other things which are wrong here and what we will lose but it’s not even close to being on the table to be discussed properly right now.
So if you haven’t already voted and can do so, go vote before 10pm tonight.
My personal recommendation is vote for anyone which allows Brexit to be put to another vote and potentially be stopped dead. Despite all the huge amount of misgivings anyone may have, right now, nothing else matters. Another general election would be called right after a second referendum vote for sure, given any agreements would be just for getting the second referendum through the Houses of Parliament so you would not have to put up with whoever for long.
See you all on the other side tomorrow.
