So you thought I would shut up about the E.U. Referendum? What do you think this is? An episode of The Archers? Anyway, I have a job to do - finish off Groucho using nothing but boredom. I see it as a challenge.
Also anyway, H.I. has been thrown into a deep depression about it all, so I am finding it hard to divert myself with brass candlesticks. A friend of hers - no, two friends actually - have called her up because they 'just needed to talk to someone about it', and one of them (the female one) was in tears.
Last night, H.I. persuaded me to sign the petition for a second referendum, even though I said it would be a complete waste of time. Ok, they may be forced to briefly mention it in parliament (especially now it has hit almost 3 million signatures), but can you imagine anyone in government - or anyone left in government - saying, "Sorry! Made a bit of a mistake! We didn't mean it!"?
Dee Em - over on a previous post - said that he/she could not see any difference in his/her day-to-day life since the referendum, so what was I ranting on about?
Well aside from being a little on the impatient side (it was only 2 days past, after all) I am wondering if she (I think it's a she) has gone back into the cupboard she crept out of to lose her sense of humour with me.
Has she not noticed how both the Labour and Conservative parties are tearing themselves to shreds at the expense of the country? Corbin has sacked Hillary Benn for mounting a vote of no confidence in him, so most of the rest of the shadow cabinet will resign on Monday as a result, leaving no opposition to Cameron or his successor at all, not that they need any.
Cameron has paved the way for the far-right of the Nasty Party to team up with UKIP by simply washing his hands of the whole business - the very morning of the vote count.
Scotland will definitely win the next referendum to break away from the United Kingdom, thereby destroying the Union for ever, also simultaneously destroying Britain's nuclear defence capability - whether or not you want it.
With a little help from a handful of other E.U. countries, the E.U. will disintegrate very shortly and bring about yet another world financial crisis before we have even begun to get over the last one, and Russia could well feel confident enough to move back into Poland and the Eastern Block, with nothing but NATO to limply protest about it.
And three days after our referendum vote has been counted, Dee Em can see no change to her day to day life? Seriously? Maybe she will notice when the price of vegetables goes up in Waitrose, not that they need any excuse to raise them.
