Post Brexit blues


Hollow victory

and simmering resentment;

country divided.


by Scooj



Really sorry to draw this out. The wounds here are still sore. In my life I have never known such a divided nation before and unusually, the injured parties are younger people and graduates. What a bad idea the referendum was. The phrase ‘be careful what you wish for’ has never been so apt.

  1. So true. I share your feelings. The hollowness of the debate…the wordiness, the bombast…the lack of insight, of reason, the overwhelming power of the ancestral fear of the stranger, more powerful than the fear of the unknown…In true victories, the joy seeps in everything, everywhere , even if you don’t feel concerned. But somehow the result has brought more shock than joy, more concern than relief, more uncertainty than faith, it has broken more than mended…

    1. You put it beautifully. I have faith and hope that a new political class will emerge. Non-party affiliated artists, environmentalists, carers, public servants, teachers, religious groups and others (you get my drift) can coalesce and apply pressure on future governments. A movement not a party. I will be among them.

    1. It is widespread throughout Europe. I fear the UK’s terrible decision will inspire others in Europe to bring down the EU. We might have precipitated the next big world crisis, for the sake of satisfying a few right wing rebels and their influence over the dispossessed.
