I wake up this morning in a Country that has fundamentally changed. It's not just that we have another Tory Government, we have had those before. I haven't liked them and I won't like this, their priorities are not mine, their attitudes are not mine, and certainly their ethics are not mine. I am disappointed but that is not my point.
My first impression is that we are becoming a fractured Country, England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland all wanting different things and possibly wanting to separate. I don't see the failure of Labour as an abandonment of left of center politics, I see it as a rise in Nationalism. The Irish Parties are certainly Irish, with Plaid Cymru and the SNP the clue is in the name. I suspect that much of the vote for the Tories and UKIP are as much about leaving the EU and English nationalism as they are about economics.
I worry about all this, I worry about how it will effect me, I worry about how it will affect my Family and I worry about how it will affect the poor, the disadvantaged, people with disabilities, people who are in need, and people who are different.
I hope I am wrong, but harking back to my last post, I am so often surprised by how stupid intelligent people can be, that I forget how stupid, stupid people can be.
