Brexit or bust

Posted on 28/06/2016

I apologise for being yet another of the thousands banging on about Brexit, but it’s all that’s in my head at the moment – I can’t get rid of it.  I keep thinking I’ve reconciled myself to the result and then I read an article about the retraction of the ‘promises’ of the leave campaign, see the worrying acts of racism, watch the news with people saying ‘I didn’t think my leave vote would count’, or Cornwall who voted out despite getting £90 million from Europe and asking for assurances they’d still get the money and I get all wound up again.

 

To my mind the whole thing has been an unmitigated disaster.

 

The campaign was appalling from both sides – there is no one side that can hold its head up high and say they did a good job. And as a consequence I would say both parties are culpable for the resultant mess.

 

The campaign was punctuated by obfuscation (word of the day), lies and fearmongering.
Facts were an inconvenient truth kept well hidden.  It’s no wonder people didn’t know what to do. It took me months of digging away and asking questions to try and get to a place where I felt in a position to be able to make a considered decision.  Thank goodness for Facebook where we shared a lot of information between us – both for and against remaining in the EU.
