Brexit Again….

You know what I’m sick of reading. Things like this.

Paraphrased – “I don’t know much about politics but could someone explain why 17.4 million people’s wishes are being ignored”

The clue was in the first part of your statement. You haven’t been paying attention, at all.

The only person to blame for your lack of knowledge or understanding of politics, is you.

There’s been a whole pantomime that’s been played out over the last three years.

A farce in which the dark corners came to light slowly but surely, the players, the pieces, the manipulations, the lies.

The underhanded methods of reaching people just like you, using football, bingo and other such bait. The schemes used to guarantee your vote in the way they wanted.

They’ve been to court, been found guilty, and been fined for all of the above.

If you haven’t been paying attention to any of this, don’t expect to be spoon fed facts you’ll refuse to believe now. What would be the point? Your mind is made up. Your decision made, uneducated though it may be.

Those of us who HAVE paid attention, who see the big picture, want another, fairer vote. One without manipulation or scheme.

Please learn about politics, and what the outcome of the vote will actually be, before you add your X.

Lift your head.


Pie, Theory.

You may have heard me use pie as a tool for analogy many times over the years.

The usual tale being that I believe people who have lots of pie, too much for them to eat, should simply share the pie rather than letting it go to waste. It fits in with friends who don’t recommend you to people or for things you’d benefit from, as they want it all themselves, and stretches right up to the sickeningly rich, who gather around their pies like a bear around her cubs.

I also believe that if you only have enough pie for you and yours, but you have a really good pie recipe, you should at the very least, share that.

Now there was a time when those gorging on pie at the top, would at least allow their crumbs to fall down upon us hungry pie hunters, but the greedy beggars got wise to it and started to wear those plastic bibs with a collection trough at the bottom.

No more crumbs for us.

Those at the very top, will throw fabulous pie parties, they’ll manipulate the system so that pie goes to them first, they’ll find way to ensure we don’t even get the crumbs.

And still there are people shouting.

“Let them have the pie and us the crumbs, it is what we voted for, after all”
