Chaos. Confusion. Racism. Nigel Farage’s work is done

Mr Farage has announced his decision to stand aside in a speech in London, saying: “I want my life back, and it begins right now.”

Funny, I’ve been saying the same thing ever since this referendum shit began and here I am still getting angry about loathsome, odious people like him.

If it wasn’t for Nigel Farage and UKIP, Tory and Labour politicians wouldn’t have been defecting from their parties and nailing their colours to the UKIP mast.

David Cameron wouldn’t then have played the gambit of announcing a referendum to put an end to the immigration debate and losing so spectacularly.

Nigel Farage, Boris Johnson and David Cameron have all played their part in this debacle. They have basically had a shit on the country and walked away from it. Leaving other people to clear up their mess.

But don’t worry. I’m sure they will be okay. They’ll write their books do their lecture tours and sit on boards of companies earning a fortune while the country goes through financial upheaval yet again.

I always remember that phrase, ‘we’re all in it together’. Unless we’re earning over £500,000 a year from public engagements I don’t think so.

 

 

 

Over 38 people die from man-eating sharks every year. What can we do?

That’s nothing. Over 17,000 people die from falls every year and we’re not trying to abolish gravity.

On the other side of the story over 100 million sharks are killed every year by humans. But, this is a conservative estimate, it could be as high as 273 million.

But thanks to man’s need to manipulate facts and figures to their own end we are only told half the story.

They’re not even man-eating sharks, they eat anything. They would prefer a juicy seal to a human being, but if humans dress like seals, mistakes will be made.

The referendum campaign was littered with half-truths, from both sides, I hasten to add. Then newspapers jumped in trying to influence voters.

I thought newspapers had a code where they were supposed to report facts.

The part of the populace that were looking for these facts were instead bombarded with fictions. Certain newspapers spread fear and lies about immigrants and now we can see the fruition of it.

I’m all for freedom of speech and freedom of the press but there is a little rule to this – if it incites violence and hatred then it’s against the law.

I would urge the authorities to do something about the newspapers again. And maybe have a word with that most dangerous of animals –  Nigel Farage.

 

 

 

 

 

Tomorrow, I have to decide whether I’m a traitor or a racist

Well, I will be voting to stay in. Why? Because I think Britain is better as part of the European Union.

And what’s the alternative? More financial insecurity? Haven’t we just been through a double-dip recession?

What I hate about this whole Leave and Remain campaign is that it’s been dirty politics all the way through.

All the camps have done is focus on the negatives. If you vote to stay in the European Union and you’re a traitor. Vote to leave and you’re a racist. Or so the Remain camp have been insinuating all along.

There have been very few arguments highlighting the positives of either decision. It’s been name-calling and childish accusations.

What are we eight? Are we still in the playground? If you’re mates with him, then you’re not mates with me!

If we were instead presented with a proper plan of action in case of either scenario, then I probably would be brave enough to consider a Leave option.

But since it’s been bickering and indecision from every party, I have to vote with my conscience. So, I’m a traitor.

But call me it to my face and I’ll get you after school.
