Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
In the end we are facing division that has been created by one side only by even contemplating anything so divisive. Division what, in the end, was as a result of a vague which was one one reassurances by its main protagonists would mean a future relationship along the lines of EEA, followed by red lines which automatically precluded this, as well as a rising tide of hatred directed towards European Nationals living in the UK. What we have now is a far right government forcing through their agenda. I do not advocate or even relish division escalating into extreme violence, but Johnson has now lit the blue touch paper, and I fear nothing can be done to stop this happening. At lease May had the good sense when she was Home Secretary to forbid the use of Johnson's water cannons - about the onlt decent thing she ever did.
