At the bottom of all my posts you’ll find a reference to where I’ve filed it. I like to use fairly generic titles to avoid the list becoming too esoteric, but I must admit that it’s mostly for my own benefit so I can refer back to events and ideas more easily.
Having said that, some of those headings do get neglected and so this is by way of making up for my oversight.
First up is Brexit, the decision we have to make about whether to stay in Europe or float ourselves off into the Atlantic. I wrote about this back in February thinking that it would be the hot topic in the following weeks, but it really hasn’t been.
We have the usual suspects making the usual arguments both for and against and I’ve scratched my head and figured it has nothing much to do with my day-to-day life. Until today.
My heart was struck cold to read that Easter eggs are more expensive because of Europe, or rather they would be cheaper if we got the hell out of it. It’s this sort of thing that makes you realise just how serious the referendum is to us, our children, and our children’s children and their freedom to gorge themselves silly on chocolate at knock down prices. It’s a definite game changer as far as Brexit is concerned.
Then there was my austerity category and George Osborne’s determination to make the country economically viable again with every penny I’ve got. The prospect was so depressing that I couldn’t raise more than two posts.
But now we are seeing him in his true colours, making sure that daylight saving time fell this weekend, so shortening the Bank Holiday weekend by one hour so we can get back to working on his behalf.
And there you have it in a nutshell – stay in Europe and pay more for chocolate or leave and hand sovereignty to clowns who want to rob you of your hard earned holidays. It’s going to be a damned close call.
