Who’d be British today? Brexit storm…

Well, the weather has been extra-stormy, but for anyone who has been hibernating for the past few months, today the political situation is worse than ever. We are at the mid-point of a series of ridiculous parliamentary votes that should/might/could… who knows… determine the future for us and our children. Who indeed would want to be British today, stuck in this Brexit storm – it is destroying us.

Yesterday, the fools voted down Mrs May’s stupid deal. Today, they are voting on whether to rule out No Deal – which it is criminally irresponsible of them to even be considering. Presumably, they will vote against No Deal (Battleaxe  bloody well hopes so or she is taking to the streets)… and tomorrow? Who knows… I read a good article by Polly Toynbee, in which she basically advocates that we should just revoke Article 50 and forget about Brexit. We all make terrible mistakes in life, but one picks up the pieces and moves on. Perhaps Brexit is the same. Here is the link to the piece.

Who knows what will happen, and almost, who cares…. we, the people are helpless, at the mercy of a crowd of supine, egocentric, plain deluded and/or stupid MPs. We are apparently, totally hung out to dry by the vain-glorious, rabid, demented extremists in the DUP and ERG.  The Labour Party is utterly useless. Corbyn is a shameful disgrace, and May looks like she is heading for physical collapse. It is said that we get the parliament we deserve, well, I don’t know what anyone has done to deserve this…  We can march, petition, write to our MPs until our eyes fall out and they take no notice whatsoever.  We can no longer have any respect for our ‘leaders’, or any belief that they are telling the truth or acting in our best interests. It is enough to make one ill. We are mired in a quagmire of lies…

The rest of government seems to be on hold, never mind that climate change threatens us all, that our public services are in tatters, that law and order is breaking down, that the country has never been so divided. Well, that’s all very cheerful, isn’t it?

The weather has improved, although it is still windy.  Yesterday it was just unbelievable – Brexit Storm Gareth or something. I went down to the Jerwood for lunch with friends – when I got down there it was just very windy, but it soon started raining as well- horizontal sheets of water…  The photos were taken before it started raining. It doesn’t make Battleaxe feel better having to contend with gales – too unsettling – what is going to blow down/blow away first.

 

Today there has actually been some sun. A group of us went up to Fairlight Hall to spy out more of the land for our WI do in July – it was actually pleasant walking round the grounds. They seem really well-organised up there. Let’s look on the bright side…
