Brexit is an act of self-harm imposed on us by arseholes

A Yougov poll released today is quite simply proof that people have lost their tiny little minds.

So imagine you’re a 20-something in a tenuous employment situation and you come home and tell mum and dad your job has been moved to say, Frankfurt, because of Brexit. Your folks will turn round and tell your that it’s worth it which is by any stretch of the imagination, fucking insane yet we’re at the ”we’ve got to do this and fuck the young‘ phase of something that’s going to hurt bad, and worse, with free movement of EU citizens ending soon we’re going to lose hundreds of thousands of skilled workers which for some is a good thing as they’ve ‘flooded’ the market in the UK ‘wholesale’.

You may think that rhetoric from the Tories and UKIP (and you’d be totally right) but this is increasingly what we’re hearing from Labour who’ve given up on any sort of solidarity with workers regardless of birthplace and now seem to be moving into an extremism worthy of the SWP asĀ  as phrases like ‘scab labour’ is used to define immigrant workers in articles posted, and then quickly deleted from Labour sites.as Labour firmly set foot in the fantasy that is Brexit with the idea that Corbyn can pick and choose what he wants (just likes May and Farage say) and (just like May and Farage have been told) that such things as having the benefits of the single market without accepting the four freedoms is impossible, but hey, here’s a Guardian article pushing that bullshit for the faithful. And oh the Labour and Tory position puts the Northern Irish peace process at risk but hey, we’re in a world now where excruciating damage is a good thing…

With things falling apart and the Scottish Independence movement tearing itself apart as to who can look the most cool and ideologically pure in that annoyingly middle class way certain Glasgow University students like to posture, it seems that a front against the lunacy of Brexit within the UK is currently invisible.

So I look to the Irish who with simple clarity have made it clear they want none of the UK’s infectious rage-fuleled idiocy and where they stand. If I were you I’d scour the family tree and see if you can grab yourself an Irish passport because we’re on a sinking ship being cheered on by people who think the economic and social equivalent of cutting your legs off is a good thing.

Don’t vote for the Tories or their enablers

The general election is a week away. You have a choice; vote Tory and get the party of the rape clause, child cap, xenophobia, Unionism, racism and a ‘plan’ that is as full of holes as Swiss Cheese. Vote for UKIP you get the same but with extra racism. Vote Labour or Lib Dem in Scotland and you vote for Tory enablers. That’s right, the Tories and Labour are working in unity in Scotland as this Tweet also shows.

Hence why to beat the Tories in Scotland there’s only the SNP/Greens stand as the opposition. In England things are different. Labour are the only option (unless you live in Bristol and Brighton where you should vote Green) and for all of Corbyn’s betrayal over Brexit and his astonishing crapness in regards the rest of the UK outwith England there’s no other option as otherwise we’ve got Theresa May as Prime Minister.

There will be things needing to be done assuming Corbyn becomes PM. Scotland and Northern Ireland can’t adhere to his vision of Brexit, and his failure to keep his branch parties in line in Wales or Scotland as they do (and I assume will continue to do) the exact opposite of what he intends to do in England means that there’s much to be done. There is however the thought of Theresa May in power for five more years doing what she wants and enacting policies that won’t just kill people, but hurt the economy and state in ways we’ve never seen outwith of wartime.

If I were to recommend what people do it would be to vote SNP/Green in Scotland. Labour/Green in England. Plaid in Wales and Alliance and SDLP in Northern Ireland. I’d give Sinn Fein a shout but they refuse to take their seats in Westminster so frankly, what’s the point unless they do that? So this is where we are. Nicola Sturgeon and many on the left are right; this election shapes the future of the UK and Corbyn isn’t a saviour, far bloody from it but he’s not a sociopath like May and we may just be able to see if he’s sensible and pragmatic enough to work with.

But you vote Tory next week you own what they do next. When that comes on your doorstep and hurts you remember that you were warned.
