I am glad I am the age that I am.
My allotted journey is closer to the end than the start.
In my time I have watched this country pull itself up by its bootlaces into a thriving nation.
And then I have watched it destroy itself.
I have a horrible feeling that I am about to witness one of the key moments in that self destruction when the keys and codes to our finances are irrevocably handed over to an unelected foreign power.
I’m glad I won’t be around as my home nation becomes a puppet state in a federal Europe.
Over the years I have watched our governments evolve from a benevolent servant into a bully master, deciding what is good for us and dictating accordingly. I’m not just talking about the smoking fiasco either. In the not too distant future they will be dictating what we eat and what we drink. They will be determining what exercise we take. Our whole lives will be governed by petty regulations and draconian laws telling us what is good for us as we patently can’t think for ourselves.
I am tired of watching people voting for a mess of pottage. I am tired of people lapping up the propaganda from Brussels. I am tired of watching people volunteering to become slaves of a master race in Europe.
This world is becoming a place I frankly do not want to live in.
I don’t intend topping myself or anything drastic like that. I shall live my life to the full extent, but I am just glad that I am not starting off on my journey.
