Voting to set us free?
A vote to make us poorer.
A vote to split us up.
A vote to rip us to pieces
Selling the country a pup!
Based on lies and arrogance
So much for project fear.
Ideology masked by populism
As the cliff face draws near.
Smarmy, arrogant nationalists
Push their crazy plans –
Fascists and populists
With the future in their hands.
They’ve split the country into tribes
As the hate-crime soars.
Spreading its racist spores.
Both sides now entrenched
Not willing to give an inch.
Logic and rationality victims
Of the unwillingness to flinch.
As worst fears become real
Revealing the complexity
In a toxic battle of propaganda
And masochistic insanity.
As the moment of truth approaches
Are they voting to set us free?
Or in this culmination
To fuck the whole country?
We’re in the period of madness as the government melts down, as May stands futilely against the tide and the future is unclear.
Now we know the complexity of the joint ventures, the costs involved, the duplication of so many people and roles, the massive divorce bill and the major obstacles to trade that will follow. Now we understand the implications for the economy. Now we understand more about the looniness of the extremist brexiteers and the reckless stupidity of their ideological based nationalism. Now we understand more about the lies that we have been fed.
It all comes to a vote that cannot be won.
Will we crash out with a damaging no deal?
Will we negotiate a different deal?
Will there be a leadership race in the Tories?
Will there be a general election?
Will there be a new government?
Will there be another referendum?
Will be stay in the EU?
If I had my way I’d let the Tories pull themselves apart in a messy leadership race. Have a general election with a massive Labour majority. Have a new referendum with a massive win for Remain and stay in the EU.
A perfect end to a disastrous mistake!
Then we can begin to address the mess this Tory government has made of the country – to reduce crime (particularly the rise in knife crime), sort the railways, the NHS, prisons, mental health, police, education, courts, homeless, fix the tax loop-holes, put an end to these obscene multimillion pound bonuses and pay-outs, stop the huge rises in energy costs, water rates, put an end to the creeping privatisation, solve housing and help the poor.
That should keep the Labour government busy for a week or two.
