Chaos In The UK

_90123231_traders_afp

David Cameron made a huge mistake by agreeing to the EU referendum.To make matters worse Michael Gove and Boris Johnson did a number on Cameron by suddenly deciding to lead the Leave vote. They were after the Tory leadership and it is being reported that they never expected to win. That was obvious over the weekend. They were stunned and kept a very low profile. They simply had no backup plan. So Cameron is gone which is what they wanted. But by now it has become obvious to most people that they lied about the benefits of leaving the EU.

Sterling is falling and banks, airlines and property shares are tumbling. Racism has now reared its ugly head in a shocking manner with some truly awful incidents being reported.

And to top it all the Labour party is also in free fall with many members of the shadow cabinet resigning amid calls for Jeremy Corbyn to step down as Labour leader.

Nice job there Boris! You really shouldn’t muck around with people’s lives simply for your own political aspirations.

    Boris didn’t expect to win, but I think also Cameron didn’t expect to lose. It highlights the golden rule about referendums, never call one unless you’re sure you’re going to win it. Neither of them had/has a “plan” for this result.

    At the risk of being boring I also think Cameron misread the people very badly. He spoke to the bankers, the stockbrokers, the high end of town. He didn’t talk to (or not enough) the corner grocer, local pub keeper, the market stall owner. These are the people who get up every morning wanting to do something that will help expand or help their business to run more efficiently and profitably, only to be told by a pen pusher in Brussels “No”. A guy who doesn’t begin to understand what the little Brit’s business is or how it operates. These are the people who voted to leave, because the so called “big picture” for them is THEIR future and what it means for their children; and they resent being told what to do by someone miles away who doesn’t give a toss about their local problems.

      Was it really someone in Brussels, or was it someone in London? Or both?

      Interestingly, the Scots voted overwhelmingly to stay in the EU, and Nicola Sturgeon, the 1st Minister of Scotland, is in talks with the EU for Scotland to stay in. There is also talk of Scotland voting again on independance. The vote two years ago was narrowly decided to stay in the UK, primarily on a last minute promise from London that the UK would stay in the EU.

      You make a good point about Cameron not talking to, or enough, to ordinary people just trying to earn a living. Some owned their own business, small, and family-run, others worked for someone else, but they could have told Cameron that austerity sucks.

      I am too weary to figure it out. And Moles, I appreciate your input.

      Heading to the US Friday…. Nothing ready.

    I can’t “like” this post, IG. As you already know, England lost to Iceland in today’s match. Normally I wouldn’t put so much stock in a sporting event, but this one, coming right after the Brexit vote, and chaos in the UK, it really seems that God has turned his back on England.
