I haven't mentioned Brexit before.
It has no effect on me personally so you would imagine that I would have no opinion. But there again I seem to have an opinion on everything so I had better grow one fast for Brexit?
I have seen the occasional report in the meeja that Brexit would be disastrous for Ireland, and I have also seen reports that our Dame Enda has been over imploring the Brits to stay in the EU. Why the Brits should take any notice of Dame Enda is beyond me as we ignore him here, even in his own country.
The Brexit vote is typical of any other EU vote – tons of propaganda stating that the sky will fall in and the UK will disappear into a black hole if they fail to follow the wishes of the EU masters. If the Brits vote to leave then there will be re-runs persuading them why they are mis guided and they really must vote again to get the right answer. Or maybe the EU will just decide to ignore the vote and refuse to let them go. I wouldn't put anything past Brussels.
Personally I do have an opinion. I hope for a resounding vote to leave. This is indeed a personal thing not because it will affect me personally [or I hope not] but it will inflict a major wound on the whole EU project which I despise. They are already suffering financially and from the immigration thing which is leading to a groundswell of opinion against them, and in the event of a Brexit I would hope that some other countries will get the idea and tell Brussels to fuck themselves, which could lead to am interesting domino effect.
I don't kid myself that Ireland will join the queue to leave as our gubmint [if we had one] has a propensity for arse licking and crawling cap in hand to Brussels. We always want to be on the side of the bully in the playground even if it means ignoring the wishes of the Irish people. We [apparently] pride ourselves on being the cap doffing, forelock tugging leaders of Europe, or at least that's what our gubmint tells us.
So for God's sake vote to leave, for all our sakes.
It just could be the beginning of the end.
