Moving On

There is no way we can accept bigotry and injustice and just ‘move on’. How can someone who has done more than anyone else in recent political history to divide the country suggest that we have to ‘unite’? Theresa May is desperate and clueless.

In 1975, there was a referendum to join the EEC. The result was 67% in favour of joining. Did the Eurosceptics shut up? No, of course not, because in 2016, there was a referendum which was won narrowly by 52% in favour of leaving the EU. Did that shut up those wanting to remain in the EU? No, of course not: If someone tells you to ‘Move on’, then tell them that is not the way democracy works.

In a similar way, if I voted Labour in one General Election, but the Conservatives won, should I be expected to ‘move on’ and embrace the Conservatives forever? Of course not.

Personally, I am waiting for the next chance to exercise my right to vote to rejoin the EU and I know others are too.

I am waiting for the ‘Ferrero Rocher’ approach to populism to wane (Ferrero Rocher are shiny, tasteless and over-rated too)
