I was raised by a full blooded Scot, that fact and I know from the way I am to my wife and family how I am. I have learned how to apologize and make amends in the last several years.

I don/t know crap about other parts of the world. It just seems like a human created mess.

I can't see past my self imposed coop either Maj, but i'll wager human motivations don't change a whole lot anywhere on this rock.


Case in point, the monied class will always find a way to legislate a $ out of the general populace , under the premise of 'helping' them


My take is this class system may be acknowledged more overtly across the pond as it is here , thus the fireworks ....but i'll defer to Mr Essex's view from the battlefront.....

I think this vote to leave the EU is down to a few things.

1. The working class that have not been listened to by multiple parties have chosen to kick the 'establishment' right where it hurts.

2. Uncontrolled immigration has left our infrastructure at breaking point.

3. To regain control of our affairs.

4. To reclaim true democracy that is non-existent within the EU.


Where do we go from here? Well, our PM has resigned and the markets across the world have suffered. I thing the markets will recover however.

So we need a new PM which will probably be a PM that campaigned for Brexit in order for us to get the best divorce deal. The Germans are nervous that there will be a mass movement across the EU now to leave. I predict hard times ahead for the EU.

Ultimately now we need to start what is called Article 50. Which is the official request to leave the EU. Once this process begins we have two years to sort out the deals etc.

Our route to success is to establish quock trade deals with China, India, The USA and The Commonwealth. This is essential IMO.

I hope for an Australian points system on immigration where we can open the doors to good quality immigration in areas we need immigration across the world. Not just the EU. EU citizens already within the UK are allowed to stay under UK law which is the right thing to do. I hope UK citizens abroad are allowed to do the same.

It looks as if the Scottish want a new referendum to leave the UK and go it alone but that is a long shot by the Scottish government as this would be very difficult for them because they would probably need to take on The Euro as this is standard for new EU members and would be a disaster.

A lot is unknown as this has never happened before. It really is groundbreaking.

Whatever happens now one thing is for sure. Every 5 years our government will be held to account. If they do not perform they will be out. No more blaming the EU.

The UK is flashbacking to the times Monty Python loved to make fun of. It's a good time to invest in umbrellas and tweed jackets with elbow patches.

This has become a real life twit race.

Oh well, nothing a spot of tea and a crumpet won't solve.

God save the Queen, although nobody knows what she needs saved from.
