Last days of the Raj


Shallow victory

enough time to do untold

and lasting damage


by Scooj

* So, predictably, Dictator Johnson holds on to power for a little while longer. I have lost faith in him, our government and am horrified by the mess our country is in. Brexit, which Johnson championed, has been the ruination of our nation, as was predicted, but it is rarely mentioned in the media as a primary cause of the chaos in the UK.

I heard an interesting challenge to Brexiteers, the other day which was; “if Brexit were to end tomorrow, what would you most miss?” I only saw one answer which was “independence”. Well it has been a very high price to pay, coming in at twice the cost of the impact of COVID in the UK, so far.

Johnson and his cabinet seem intent on waging war on the decent citizens of this country, in the name of what exactly? I just don’t get it, and I don’t understand why his supporters put up with it. All too depressing.

I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.

    1. That is so true. I would like to think I don’t do that, but I am not so sure. I have voted for all the main parties in the UK, so am not party loyal at all.
