Evidently, British Brexit taxpayers didn’t know what they were voting for in the 2016 referendum when 17.4 million Britons chose to abandon the European Union.
Presumably, they were blindfolded and led around like decapitated chickens, but were people in Britain really told the facts to begin with? And did they really know precisely what they were voting for?
They were guaranteed something that was utterly absurd and wasn’t economically workable. And it’s got so complex now that we simply don’t know what’s going on.
However, a second vote has been requested, demanding another referendum is the only way to decide the parliamentary delay and the leavers are right in rejecting the Prime Minister’s Soft Brexit plan.
The deal is the worst of both worlds and we’ll be hauling Remain voters out of the European Union for a deal that means still abiding by numerous EU dictates, but presently with no say on shaping them.
It’s not what they want, and on top of that when they learn that Leave voters are unhappy, they ask, ‘What’s the point?’ And for Leavers, this agreement just does not give the proper break from the European Union that they wanted.
The only solution is to take the final Brexit decision out of the hands of deadlocked politicians and give it to the British people and to give Britons three choices on the voting paper.
Firstly, to accept Theresa May’s Brexit proposal, secondly, to leave the World Trade Organization (WTO) terms or thirdly, to stay remaining in the EU but Prime Minister Theresa May has repeatedly stated Britain will not have a second Brexit referendum.
But people do have a brain that works and can figure things out for themselves and those that did vote knew precisely what they were voting for, although the day after the Brexit referendum in June 2016, resulting in winning to leave, the most used search term on Google by people in the United Kingdom was: “What is the European Union,” This was the day after the referendum.
But then we’ve got a Parliament in London, full of rodents and reptiles, making decisions that aren’t to our advantage, so what’s the difference? But then the EU is a distended self-serving establishment and it’s restrictive in trade wanting deals inside the EU and nowhere else.
It’s governed by a few and it’s not democratic.
But did we vote for food deficits and all the consequences of leaving?
Sometimes it’s better the devil you do know, than the devil you don’t. England was perfectly fine before we joined the EU but to leave now would be like cutting off our right arm, except if you’re left handed, then it would be your left…
Change can sometimes be good, but sometimes it can be really bad and if we leave the EU altogether, our trade will become extremely difficult because they will make it really challenging for us.
There were hundreds of people that didn’t know and believed Boris Johnson and his pack and are worse off now, hitting the food banks, and we forget that a substantial part of Britain isn’t as educated as the rest and fact-finding might have been hard for them, but still voted out and realised after that they’d made a huge mistake.
We were told that Brexit would be hugely advantageous to Great Britain but over the last two years most of those claims have been withdrawn, now it’s about damage and limitation.
We’re supposed to be the land of milk and honey but now we’re being advised to stockpile food and medicine, which makes you think that perhaps it’s time to have another vote and educate people about Brexit, and not fraudulent education, we want the truth this time.
When there are people out there that don’t agree with Brexit and the government are seeking to fraudulently stretch the truth onto people, that’s called bullying.
Food wasn’t rationed in WWI, there was poverty, of course, but it was free for all, those who had money ate and those that didn’t starved, and there’s every possibility that’s what will happen here in England because the Tories don’t believe in humanity, just the power of money.
It’s always the poor that get hit the most but those in government won’t suffer too much, you can be sure of that.
Clearly, some people didn’t know what they were voting for and many were misled about the NHS. Numerous people said they didn’t actually understand all the implications but wanted more money for the NHS but now sadly the NHS is under threat because of the government selling it off.
If Brexit does work it could be 50 years before we find out, by that time most of us will be dead, in fact those that were 17 years old at the time, and not old enough to vote, will be 70 years old and will have wasted their entire life working, waiting to see if they got any benefit from a verdict they were not entitled to have any say in.
What is the advantage of leaving? Is it like swapping a three-course meal for the vague promise of a packet of stockpiled crisps? And how could anyone have known what they were voting for, the government didn’t even know what you were voting for…
If we leave the EU, all EU businesses will cease to trade with the United Kingdom so we will be up the creek without a paddle, and that’s only half of it, once we leave we further conclude all our current trade agreements with every country around the world from that moment on.
So, we will have no trading agreements with anybody and this will be a disaster for Great Britain and many countries like the United States, Brazil, New Zealand et cetera have already told us to get stuffed and will prevent us getting our articles or passports to trade except if we substantially decrease our privileges, so then we will be little fish in a huge pond and won’t have the same access or rights to the EU.
America has demanded that we drastically decrease our Health and Safety laws and Animal Welfare laws save for a surge of US GM crops, Chlorine chicken et cetera.
The same with countless others who don’t treat their animals so well and use chemical branding here. Of course, the United States has further made it pretty apparent they will further prevent us from trading under the WTO laws after leaving if we demand we keep subsidising medications.
So, we need to drastically raise the cost along the US lines so that US businesses can compete and overwhelm our market and tough luck if you’re poor and it’s not as if the NHS can support these huge increases but the hardline Brexiteers think it’s excellent.
As with the endless parodies of Brexit, WTO members will have a majority and tell us what new terms and requirements we can trade under WTO rules but we have been told quite openly it will mean getting rid of all the privileges we have now and accept that we remove our high Animal Welfare Rights laws and high H&S laws to support those with lower standards et cetera, and complete access to our markets, and we will no longer be able to pick and chose what we want.
So, Elton John is a master on Brexit now, I thought he was a pop star and half the time he doesn’t even live in this country but he does have a point, the Brexit campaign is bursting with jargon and no one really knows what they mean but simply replicate them anyhow.
But Elton has his opinions and he’s entitled to express them, perhaps he should be the next Prime Minister, and he’s extremely loyal to Britain but even a person in a coma would know that this is a mercenary nefarious government that tittle-tattles nothing but out-and-out crap.
But I agree with Elton, I don’t think anyone knows what the hell is going on or what to expect, and now total panic has ensued and we’re in an abyss.
At the moment everyone appears to be an authority on Brexit, but no one’s an authority on Brexit, especially our politicians that are deemed to be managing it, but no one is an authority on Brexit because it was a cynical pie in the sky idea for rash and gullible politicians that the average person can see right through.
I’m weary of the experts because they appear to have no idea what’s going on.
As for Elton John, he’s a UK subject and in regards to Brexit, integrity means doing or saying what one believes is best for the United Kingdom and he thinks the exiting campaign made undeliverable promises and he said so.
The trouble with leavers is they still think we have an empire and we can patronise the rest of the world. We’re a small wheel in a big world now and it has profited massively from EU support, look at all the city improvement programmes just for a start, nevermind investment from all over the globe because we’re in the EU, try taking all that away and what have we got?
I’m starting to question if Brexit will ever happen anyhow, just because it’s actually impracticable to deliver what was promised. Every aspect of our life is far too deeply interconnected with the EU for us to break up in the time frame suggested. Perhaps a 10 year transition period, maybe, but not in the current format. It’s two years on and still, no one has a clue how to do this.
Of course, Elton is wealthy and prosperous and his money cushions him from Brexit but at least he stuck his head above the rampart.
This ludicrous situation only started because David Cameron called for a vote to quell Nigel Farge, who, it appears has done pretty well lining his own pockets but neither of these two had the guts or the courage to see through what they both started.
Nigel Farage simply whipped up and played upon people who revelled in a chocolate box version of British life which has never actually existed.
Immigration has always existed, but the real problem has never been about immigration, it’s been about the increasing number of poly-cultural communities which create distrust and misunderstanding, rather than multicultural communities which are full of spirit, and hustle and bustle.
There is precious little information on how this country will fare financially and business wise which two years on from the non-legally binding vote is utterly ridiculous never mind a poor joke.
What about the future of our kids? Were you oblivious to the facts that further education colleges were getting massively financed by the EU? Not least because of the NEETS, those 16-18-year-olds who were not in work, education or training.
There is a pretty high percentage of these young people who presently find themselves at their local colleges who are not academically inclined nor particularly trade inclined, but due to the collapsing nature of our manufacturing industry, these young people are elbowed into college to endeavour to get their grade 4/5 English/ maths GCSE as they had failed them the first time around.
Education is extremely important, but if we’re striving to question whether Britain might be better off after Brexit, then it’s essential that we know where that funding comes from, and which has underpinned British lives for so long.
There has never actually been glorious days of our nation, I mean what’s great about trampling all over the globe and claiming a land and its people for your own and then treating those people like trash, or using them as slave labour, if not worse, encouraging them to fight and die in conflicts not of their own making and then stripping the colony of its nature assets, there’s a very impressive heritage here, don’t you think?
What you consider as being Great Britain was created by serfs, either directly or indirectly through slave profit and immigrants and many of our grand well-known structures, for instance, are connected to such brutality.
Oh, and a word to the wise, we all who live in this country regardless of fame, wealth or standing has a freedom to assert their view on whatever they want. It’s called freedom of speech.
When you get to the bottom of it, it normally turns out that a leave vote was based on emotional reasons rather than rationale. You can’t fight against emotion with reason. It’s like trying to use reason to argue against religion. It’s pointless.
People make up their minds based on how they feel and they don’t change their minds when confronted with facts because facts never came into it in the first place.
The government tell us that they can get us back into work like we have potential and then it’s wasted, a whole generation of pumping fuel, serving tables, workers with white collars and advertising has us chasing wheels and clothes, working jobs we despise so we can get shit we don’t want.
We have no purpose or place and our depression is our lives where we have all been raised on television to believe that one day we might become tycoons and movie idols, and rock stars, but of course, we won’t and gradually we’re learning that fact and it’s making us really pissed off.
The fact is, all of us are stars and we all deserve to twinkle.
