The topic du jour seems to be the UK elections.
So Boris the Spider won, and won fairly conclusively. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if the EU declared the result null and void and demanded another election. I wouldn’t put anything past that mob.
Anyways, I can only say I am ambivalent about the result.
On one hand it means potential knock on effects for Ireland. I’m not sure what those effects will be but doubtless it will cost me one way or another. Already I have noticed that one of Herself’s medications [supplied from the UK apparently] has run out of stock and will seemingly remain so for a while yet. They’re blaming that on Brexit. God only knows how it will affect supplies of food and stuff.
Already there are calls for a referendum to entice out
friends neighbours Up North to join us, and even louder rumblings in Scotland. Fun times ahead?
On the other hand I am distinctly jealous. Its like a cell-mate being given a pardon while I still have to serve a life sentence.
The greatest thing about Brexit from my point of view though is the seismic shock to The Fourth Reich. The dream of a United States of Europe has been delivered a major blow. I can hope that the blow will be fatal but I suspect they’ll survive and pass more laws to make withdrawal even harder for any other country hoping to make a dash for freedom.
Now where did I put that application form for a British passport?
