Well, what a shock: Boris bailed out !
This kind of screws up my theory, had I only waited a couple of days before chirping up.
Distant memories of my old gunnery instructor at JL's, who told me more than once not to 'jump the gun'.
Ron, I have not been watching what miss May has been doing to the police but was there not a lot of corruption that needed to be, that she, sorted out ? Your point about her old man and G4S smacks a bit like Hillary, across the pond, not Benn. So who does that leave us with ? Boris's backstabber or an unknown ... somebody who has not been moulded by the inner circles ... the problem is that the inner circles, at home and abroad, do not like outsiders and would not be willing to give them a fair chance. Interesting times for sure !
I also liked your point about just 'who has the right to vote' and that raises a lot of questions about our fake democracy: About 33 million voted, which is about half of the population, which means that either side represented only about a quarter of the population; this means that the selected 1% of a quarter of the population rule 100% of the people, no wonder that we are in a mess ! In days of yore at least the kings had to fight for their throne.
Bob, Im with you about facebook.
Would it be such a bad thing to let natural land masses, Gibralter and N.I be reunited with their natural neighbours ? Like most of you I did my time in N.I. and lost a lot of friends there, for what ? I see Scotland and Wales a bit differently, them being a part of our natural land mass and we should make considerable efforts to ensure unity there. It would not be all that difficult if the greedy 1% would distribute business-work-wealth fairly around GB. Bugger London, let the Scots have a major international airport and all of the work and wealth that goes with it. Why do people in the north have to travel to London, which is insanely overcrowded, to catch a plane ? A bank, with its computers, can function just as well in Lancaster or Yorkshire as in London and the great ports of Liverpool, Hull and Glasgow could again flurish with new international trade, it is just a question of a lack of political will and greed !
Sammy, honesty is a virtue but honest hard work - getting involved - can be very rewarding. If everyone would do their bit, in all walks of life, we would not be in the mess we are in today.
One more point that Bob mentioned: immigration. For me the vote was not an issue of immigration as such (I myself live overseas) but the right to choose who we are prepared to let in. For me the vote was more about not allowing Brussels to dictate to us just so many things, that clearly upset many millions of other europeans, that have nothing to do with free trade.
Thanks everyone for your input.
