London wants exit from Brexit, another referendum the Neverendum

IMG_20150406_0005

It is clear now. The UK is heading for what they are famous for; pure chaos and Monty Python. Over two and half million signatures have been collected calling for a new referendum. A second referendum is also gathering steam for London to exit the Brexit and remain in the EU.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-06-25/petition-for-second-eu-referendum-reaches-one-million-signatures/7543860

A map of the petition signatures showed that most came from England’s major cities, topped by London where there is a separate petition calling on Mayor Sadiq Khan to declare the capital independent from the United Kingdom, and apply to join the EU.

With Scotland and now London wanting to become independent one can start to see what happens when, instead of joining in globalisation, the isolation and separating can’t be good for the general welfare of this tiny world.

I feel like going back to bed, curl up with a good book. ( don’t forget Libexit!)

    It is somewhat reminiscent of a Monty Python sketch. I sat with my mouth open this morning as I watched Britons interviewed saying “But I didn’t think my vote would count! Can we do it again? I want to vote to stay!” Unbelievable.

    It just shows that the system is crazy. I just posted on twitter have been tweeting for a couple of months and not sure what I think about it as a media platform. Am @whosunktheboat

      We shall see. On the Australian ABC ‘the drum’, the anti -refugee brigade is in full swing too, blaming the UK’s problems on Poles, Rumanians, Greeks and others.
      It is funny, when those foreigners are interviewed, many speak with local accents and have lived in the UK for many years.
      The present election in Australia, with (compulsory) voting due in less than five days, both sides are tripping over themselves to exploit the UK predicament. This nation is nervous.
      Of course, many in the UK still hold an island mentality and would like nothing less for the return of gunboats roaming the world.

    Sometimes I plan an Exit, and hiding in my cushion fort in the lounge room. Can the EU, or ASIO, or ISIS find me there?

    Yes, especially if she senses her food supply might be threatened.

    Still in shock here. It is difficult to believe that so many people swallowed Boris and Farage’s immorally manipulated statistics – but they did, ably supported by all the most unappetising newspapers. Cities with high unemployment and very few immigrants were made to believe that factories would reopen if immigration stopped! I’m not sure these guys even planned to win, they just wanted to give the EU a bloody nose. Now they’ve ‘won’ have no plan. Back to my meditation, I think.

      Yes, it seems the same here. A few independents are channelling the xenophobes and isolationists for political motives. They usually have no clear answers and exploit fear and distrust.
      Of course, inequality does exist but working together and improve education is a better answer that nationalistic flag waving and loud shouting.

    It’s a very sorry situation. I must admit to having a big weep when the results came through. It really is quite catastrophic – a right bloody balls up to be sure. What a mess, what an absolute shambles and still it goes on. No one has any answers, no one seems to know what to do. The country is now split in half and the UK is the laughing stock of the world. Seeing the footage of Farage speaking in Brussels was toe curling. He is a complete fool and a dangerous one to boot. This joke of a referendum should never have happened. Its been a lousy idea from start to finish. The dissatisfaction in the UK has nothing whatsoever to do with the EU and everything to do with British politics, greedy corporations, gross inequality and the fact that the rich boys are getting richer and the poor boys are being **** on from a great height. I can only hope that something good does come out from this sorry state of affairs. Who knows how it will affect us all? We will have to wait and see.

      Yes, Lottie.
      When you realise that seventy percent of those under twenty five did not bother to vote one might be forgiven to feel that this calamity is now totally owned by those that are yet to face most of their future.
      It seems doubly ironic that that same youthful group might well also be the ones fixed to the global world through the button on the computer. Face-Book and Twitter is their world more than those oldies that chose the isolation through the choice of Brexit.
      I hope that the Trumps and Farages don’t now are going to dominate. In Holland, they have Geert Wilders and in France, Marie Le Pen.
      It’s a mess.
      Anyway, we will plod on, Lottie. We have our own lives to go on with. Say hello to Irish.
