23rd of June, 2016

You may already be tired of the EU Referendum result, so I will not write about it here. However, if you are still interested, please follow the link to my other blog.


In years to come, this will be a date remembered. Like other memorable dates in the past, this one will take its place in the history books, and be spoken of by future generations.

Against the odds, and to my own great surprise, Britain has voted to leave the EU, and by a fair margin too. The vote says a lot more than just about dissatisfaction with Europe. it shows a country divided, between the haves, and the have-nots. The patronising intellectuals who tell the working people what is best for them have been faced with a revolution from the voters. The scare-mongers have had their bluff called, and the ranks of politicians who were sure that they knew best, have found out that they didn’t know anything.

This country has had the remarkable courage to face an uncertain future, and to accept responsibility for that future too. I am…

  1. Had to laugh this morning, Cornwall, who voted to leave, are already demanding the govt make good to them the £60 million they get each year from the EU. 🙄 Wouldn’t bet on their chances.


    1. Let the moaning commence! I got an email asking me to sign a petition demanding another vote, because the majority wasn’t substantial enough! It was from some pro-Remain campaign of course.
      Heads are rolling, and even the winners are complaining. That’s the British for you!
      Best wishes, Pete.


      1. I know, it’s bonkers. The petition for a second referendum has more votes than the difference between the leaves & remains! You couldn’t make it up! We just need to get on with it now, it’s done, lets do the best we can.


  2. I read the entry at your other blog, and commented there briefly. I was working on a song last night, occasionally checking in to see how the vote was going. But then my work pulled my eyes away from the BBC for a few hours, and when I checked again, just after two o’clock in the morning here in Las Vegas, the Brexit vote had won, and David Cameron had announced his intention to resign in the fall. The vote shows that polls can be misleading, and that people are fed up with their country’s “world order” politics. The Brexit vote will play into Donald Trump’s hands. He supported the exit. We all know that Obama and Hillary did not. Obama had warned that if the UK voted itself out of the EU, it would go to the “back of the queue.” Trump, on the other hand, said that he’d put the UK at the “front of the line.” That’s ironic considering the British Parliament had debated banning Trump from the UK! The Brexit vote will also have repercussions in Brussels and across the European continent. There may very well be similar votes arranged in other EU countries, and, if so, the EU may begin to shrink. If that happens, Brussels will have to come up with a new strategy if it wants to see the EU, or what’s left of it, survive.


    1. Thanks for your considered comment, David. Trump is very unpopular here, despite his praise of a ‘Brexit.’ Clinton and Obama can do what they like. If we said no to the EU, we can happily tell them where to go!
      Best wishes, Pete.
