Re: Brexit bollocks
Clearly you need to get your brain installed and stop reading the BBC.
1) The areas that voted out are among those that have been hit worst by membership and the associated diabolical implementation of EU rules by our low intelligent and disasterous civil servants egged on by the even less desirable and effective politicians (of all political persuations)
2) Leaving is not a left/right divide, it is a divide between those who can think, can read history, can look at the disaster of the last 40 years and understand its causes and the remainers who just lap up the bbc bollox about 'Cambridge voted to stay and has lots of degrees so it follows the intelligent vote to stay... only it doesnt follow at all, it follows only that in Cambridge a disproportionate number of people are rich enough to have had their degrees oaid for by daddy and want to be able to go to their French villa).
3) Its partly not an excuse, but it has to be said that the real problem about benefit bums is the benefit system. If a benefit bum gets off their backside and goes and helps farmer bill with the harvest it will take months to get the benefits reinstated while farmer bill pays totally shite wages because of all the polish that will pick the harvest for peanuts. Fix the real problem, a civil service designed benefit system whose major design criteria was creating more civil service jobs in the department (see yes minister for more examples)
4) most of pension age have some pension provision so are actually pretty unlikely to be affected. If the economy does indeed tank (and there are good explanations why it shouldnt but possibly will - all revolving around poor management, poor civil service planning and piss poor mps) the ones that will be hurt most are the usual middle class suspects trying to earn a living, seeing wages continue to stagnate and taxes rise. As you can tell from the ever shrinking armed forces, ever raising taxes and the falling wages of the last 40 years this wont really be any different to the situation we voted to get out of.
5) No one reads the daily mail, anyone stupid enough to buy a tabloid only does it for the cartoons... used to be page 3, but thats gone
6) Will Labour be any better? I hope not, perhaps if both parties are destroyed some people might stop voting the way they vote because they always have and their parents did etc etc which is the mess that leads to stupid voters, poor mps, fraud, cheating, appaling laws created by wedges of cash in back pockets (all of our laws for the last 60 or more years) and the we dont give a damn about you voters attitude. So ripping parties apart is a very good and much over due outcome
7) We might lose one of the more amusing politicians, though like losing any of our current politicians (indeed I think any politician I have heard about in 40 years or more), losing bojo will have bugger all effect on the mess the country is in - as yes minister and yes prime minister demonstrate fully, the civil service run the country not our lazy pathetic politicians
8) Who? Thought he had already gone.
Your last comment really is stupid. There is nothing to keep you in the UK, if you think that Spain for example is so much more of a success then you can live there. If you are already abroad then I expect I understand your stupidity and arrogance, you are probably hoping no other country has the guts to say no to the EUs united states of europe pretentions.
On a more practical note there is no reason for the economy to tank.
Decide what are strategic industries... aerospace, vehicle manufacturing (cars, vans,lorries), railway equipment and infrastructure manufacturing, ships, tank, guns, bombs etc. electronics (including silicon), food, mining, energy and a few others, protect with large tariff barriers and invest in them from a government fund, and most importantly buy from them (no more bmw police cars). This will allow them to create the new plant, new machinery, new jobs that we need to compete. For strategic industry overcome tariff barriers to the EU (the only new ones anyway) by adjusting tax rates for export goods.
