Led into a Brexit vote like a shoal of mackeral to the feeding frenzy of a whale pod. The media, the hype the divisive rhetoric of UK politics has divided up the Great British union like a fractured shop window.
There used to be a sense of unity, and acceptance of a multicultural society, Also most people contributing to a wider sense of society. The tabloids have spent years undermining that cohesiveness.
I fail to see the economics of restricting immigration. I fail to see how public services can be maintained. I fail to see how the pensioners will get care when they need it without nurses willing to come and work for the NHS and nursing homes, residential care, and home visitors to help keep the elderly in their own homes for as long as possible.
How dare that elderly lady who complained 'Not another one', when the general election was called. Her parents were the generation who fought for our freedom and democracy. The ignorant, self centred, ungrateful type who complains about everything. She probably didn't go to vote if it was raining and the bingo hall was being used for a voting station.
I think the UK should suspend party politics for the next two years. Form a general coalition with a cross party representation working group to sort out the Brexit mess.
They can also come up with a working strategic plan for the UK at the same time. Sort out the social injustice, the NHS, re-nationalise the utilities, and get all the privatisation under control.
For instance our water company in Jersey is owned 51% by the States of Jersey, and the rest by the public by way of buying shares. This way we can turn up to shareholders meetings. I don't think corporations should own public service shares, it should be the general public with a capped holding of say £30K, and a simple dividend paid on the shares, the rest going back to develop infrastructure.
There are so many waterways where micro generation can be used. Also water is a good way to store excess energy by pumping it up to catchment lakes when the grid needs to dump wind power, and then using it to create hydro.
I am sure the UK canal networks could be modified to create a huge catchment system, and as the water is let out through each lock a micro generator installed. Put the whole system on an auto program, create work and living space next to locks again, but with a technical as well as leisure purpose.
For goodness sake, let's have some joined up thinking.
