The humbling of Britain

This is not “taking back control”. This is not the proud, independent, liberated Britain that the Brexiteers promised. It is grotesque, calamitous, an epic act of self-harm brought about not by some war or disaster but by our own stupidity. And the true “enemies of the people” are not those opposing this catastrophic Brexit. They are not the million decent people from every background who marched in London last Saturday, or the five million who have petitioned to revoke Article 50, but those whose lies, zealotry, and political recklessness have all but broken Britain. For posterity’s sake, those self-styled “patriots” who have so grievously betrayed their country should be named and shamed… More here.

It’s all so sad.

  1. Brexit is going to destroy democracy for a generation. Any remaining respect for politicians has completely evaporated, with their total incompetence laid bare. I despise them all so much I won’t be voting for any of the mainstream political parties for the rest of my life. And you can be damn sure I won’t be buying that fool Cameron’s book.

  2. Yeah I know where you are coming from. Feels bereft of anyone who doesn’t have their own self interests at heart. I don’t like Cameron, but he had no choice but to call the referendum really at the time. Suspect he could see a lot of this happening down the line.
