Thread Name: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
i've always felt that it is the way that people and families are affected that should matter most. i don't really understand the finer details of trade deals, financial implications etc - far less the political squabbling involved in trying to extricate our country from whatever cul-de-sac into which we have so foolishly negotiated our selves.
from day 1 we could have said that EU workers are welcome here and worked hard to protect our rights to work abroad, but this has never been accepted by the political grotesques of the tory right. their money will protect them and they live and 'work' where they please. that a significant minority of our fellow citizens seem to support these buffoons is really sad. think about the opening ceremony of the london olympics and the picture that the UK showed to the world. that was only 7? years ago - the people who have dragged our country down and so far away from 'normal' or even sensible should be imprisoned - not queuing up for the top jobs in a barely functioning democracy.
sorry, i'm rambling now - when i should be off birdwatching on the solway coast and trying to forget about all this hideousness.
