Politics do matter. And at an individual level if people watch stupid things, read stupid things, and believe in stupid things - guess what? they then actually vote for stupid things..
The UK situation in 2016 beggared belief - and I’d spent the best part of the previous 15 years in the UK by then. Then the pre actual brexit period 2016-2020 seemed like black comedy, and this last year, well what can you say, I guess predictably, it’s become a farce.
Sadly, however, this is not theatre.
This is peoples lives, real lives - not the lives of Boris Johnson or Nigel Farrage, who already had enough money even if they didn’t work another day in their life.. Real people with real families who need real jobs to earn real money so they can put food on the table and keep a roof over their head.
As William Keegan observes - “An economic omelette is being ruinously unscrambled”.
It’s now damned difficult to see how, having cracked the brexit-eggs, much can be done in the way of re-creating whole eggs and putting them back in the carton again..
Buggered if I know 😛
