The Anonymous Widower

Action This Day!

This was Churchill’s famous phrase and you can read all about it here.

I am getting sick of the indecision of Brexit and I suspect many in this country feel the same.

As I’m retired, it doesn’t make any difference to my business and those that I employ, as there is no business and no employees.

To my mind, Brexit must be sorted by the end of January at the latest, so that we can all move on.

  • If we vote in Boris Johnson with a large majority, we might leave, although I suspect there will be challenges in Parliament, the Courts and on the streets.
  • If we vote in Jo Swinson with a large majority, she will revoke article 50 and that could be the end of Brexit for at least a few years and hopefully for ever.
  • If we vote in Jeremy Corbyn with a large majority, he will dither and prevaricate for a few years years, before we get another close referendum, which gives us more of what we’ve had for the last few years.

As someone, who voted Remain and now quite frankly doesn’t care, I believe the only way to get us out of this mess made by David Cameron, is to hope that Johnson or Swinson get a majority large enough to carry out their stated policies on Brexit.

As for Corbyn, who has a Push-Me-Pull-You policy on Brexit, everybody should make sure, that whoever they vote for, consigns Corbyn, his apparatchiks and their crack-pot policies to the dustbin of history.

  1. I live in a very safe labour seat, and until she stood down this time, our MP was excellent in both the constituency and in Parliament I voted for her even though I am not a big supporter of labour. When I was in 6th form at school many many years ago now, I did my DofE Gold aware, and for one of the sections we had to a a research project; there were lots of fascinating topics in the handbook but school give us 2 choices – Democracy in Action or Both Sides of Industry. Neither excited me. It was 1974; the papers were full of political stuff around Ted Heath’s minority government, and subsequent 2nd election that year. So I did my research on Electoral Systems in Europe. It was fascinating, and I concluded the Proportional Representation was a positive thing provided we didnt model it on countries like Italy – I don’t remember why now, but I do still see PR as positive. My local council is hung – LibDem/Labour and when it was LibDem majority it was run very very well, and they managed the budget extremely well despite us being typically in the bottom 10 regarding the governments input into the council funding. I am generally a moderate person anyway, and tomorrow I will vote for LibDem, although it would be take a huge swing to get the seat/ the other two consituencies which make up the council are both Con/LibDem marginals.
