The narcissists are in charge

Every day for what seems forever, but probably only since 2013, I have told myself that things can’t get any worse and almost every day I have gone to bed disappointed. There have been moments of cheer, but in reality the up sections of the roller-coaster ride have been smaller than the descents. The trend has been remorselessly down and the narcissists are in charge of the asylum.

Move over for the younger generation

I started this blog in July 2019 but never finished it. Now the coronavirus lockdown has stopped most travel and many more people are relying on video conferencing for their private and working lives. Even school classes are conducted on line. The “Zoom” way of life has opened up different divides in society and highlighted different priorities. We don’t know what the lasting effects will be; working from home may stay; the “key” workers may be treated with more respect and command better pay (we can only hope); a new set of priorities and new economic and social models may dawn. More than ever it is time to make room for the younger generation.

Time to step up and fight for the honour of our country

Only 3 hours to go before the UK formally leaves the EU and I am feeling extremely sad about it. At the moment I don’t have the energy to be angry, but the sadness is coloured with frustration and dismayed disappointment.

Let’s Come Together now Brexit’s done. Really?

Now that Johnson has his majority the formality of Leaving the EU is getting an easy ride through parliament and we know the UK will leave the EU on 31st January 2020. Despite the “Get Brexit Done” slogan, so successful in the 2019 General Election, it doesn’t mean Brexit is done. The Vote Leave campaign now in government must now deliver in the real world.

Big lies, bigger cover up, slippery slope

Some things stick in the memory, others don’t. For some reason I’ve always remembered a university lecturer claiming that “Local people are more likely to challenge their council spending £200 on a park bench than £2 million on a swimming pool”. The reason: scale.

A race to the bottom

My husband follows a local Facebook group populated mainly by hard Brexiters and for some reason he thinks it amusing to read some of their posts to me. The posters are enthusiastic about “no-deal” Brexit and, as you may expect, challenge anyone against it to have faith and belief in Britain (or in some cases England). But why do they have such confidence?

Who needs experts?

Who needs experts eh? For the last two years I have been amusing myself with a blog about retirement in the style of Brexit. Creating a fiction of my own life reflecting the absurdities of what Brexit leaders were saying and doing was better than banging my head against the wall. At times it was difficult to keep up with the chaos but I struggled on.

Comments Off on Brexit Betrayal

Brexit Betrayal

Nigel Farage is keen to promote a Brexit betrayal narrative. He claims people feel betrayed by parliament because they are obstructing the delivery of Brexit and denying the will of the people.

But the no deal Brexit he is now demanding is nothing like the Brexit he and other advocates for Leave tempted voters with in the run up to the 2016 referendum.

Proudly British, Proudly European

Anyone campaigning for People’s Vote or the Pro-EU parties in the recent elections is almost certain to have been called unpatriotic, lacking faith in Britain or in more extreme cases, a traitor.

Of course I disagree. I believe that attempting to stop Brexit or at least giving people a chance to decide if they still want it now the consequences are more apparent is the patriotic thing to do.
