Brexit.

Okay.  I give in.  Although exactly what I am going to say is still a mystery.  It will have to be Off the Cuff.

It has been difficult for me because I love France,  Brittany actually, to be exact.  I don’t know a lot about the rest of France, and my one trip Down South to Vichy Country wasn’t much of a success.  You can still smell the treachery.

Anyhow, this doesn’t have much to do with why I so wanted Brexit For Britain.  I left England 27 years ago because I was almost terminally tired of trying to make a living while coping with the fear of what was going on around me, and watching Britain go down the pan.  It has only got worse since then.  I never go there anymore.  And I still don’t feel obliged to lock my doors here.  Mind you, The Rotten Little Swine can’t half bark.  He sounds like a Rottweiler.  I caught him barking at a poor little Hedgehog at 3am this morning.  So that’s about the limit of my worries of intrusion.  Hedgehog Fleas ain’t funny.

I saw Brexit as a means for Britain to regain her pride, and I still don’t care if this affects me perversely, although I very much doubt that it will.  The Bretons are kind people and France has been vey good to me, which Britain never was.  I am a Celt, as are The Bretons, which might have something to do with it.

Will The EU suffer from the lack of Britain’s financial input?  I don’t care about that either.  France will survive.  France is a law unto itself these days.  And Germany can go whistle.  I can deal with Francs just as well as The Euro.  Germany has far more to worry about.  Germany thought that it could rule The World economically.  They got that wrong as well.  It’s all down hill from now on.  Britain beat them the last time, and will again.  I hope.

No, I don’t know what will happen in 60 odd days.  Personally, I think that The EU will cave in, but I don’t care if it doesn’t.  This ridiculous Back Stop is basically irrelevant.  So save the 39 Billion.  The NHS could certainly do with it.

I want Britain to be a little bit Great again, but I am becoming weary.  If Britain can be beaten by a bunch of home grown Dictators who don’t give a fuck for Democracy then all is lost anyway.  I do hope that it isn’t.

    Thanks, Liz.

    None of what is happening is straightforward. Unless Britain wants it to be. Which far too many of them don’t, despite being in the minority.

    Who in their right mind wants to be part of something that dictates every waking thought?

    The EU got above itself, and a bit carried away. Britons are an Island Race who don’t understand Federalism. Tis no wonder it all went wrong.

      Fully agree. It’s parliament that has got above itself here. They are trying not to deliver the goods. Our elected MP’s are not doing their jobs. I think the ones that are actively engaged in stopping Brexit, should be fired.

    A shoddy little island with delusions of grandeur. I won’t be renewing my passport if I can get an EU one.

  4. elenamitchell Says:

    Britain is looking shoddy these days. Who needs a passport to go there? Mine ran out in 2017 and I have better things to do with the cost of renewal.

    Do you live in an EU country, Sexton?
