This was tweeted by Nick, who I know only as an Arsenal supporter but his take on Brexit serves a conclusion much wider than that!
He suggests that Brexit is:
“People celebrating an imaginary freedom, over an imaginary oppressor in an imaginary war. With imaginary benefits.”
I really cannot improve on that.
Yet is this freedom from – or is it freedom to?
It cannot be freedom from since the UK was actually a prominent part of the regulatory superpower that is the EU.
So it must be freedom to – to do what exactly? Well impoverish ourselves looks likely, make sure we shut down opportunities for our young people for sure, and even talking to Chinese National Rail about building HS2, our greatest current individual national investment. Leaving the EU seems to involve disinvesting from our own country!
Indeed nobody has ever realistically suggested the question to which Brexit is the answer…
It is now apparent that leaving the EU roughly translates as completely leaving our senses – and all because we were lied to.
Makes you proud that we live in a country where the Mother of Parliaments is in charge doesn’t it?
