So in the last week, the UK public voted to leave the EU. That was the most heart-breaking thing for me. I was in so much shock, I couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t believe that there were more people who wanted to leave than those who wanted to remain. I was so certain that we’d remain. I thought the leave campaign was a joke and that everyone could see it. But apparently not
And it didn’t just stop with the leave side winning. A whole lot of crazy followed suit. First the pound dropped to a thirty year low, then our prime minister resigned, which angered me more than it should have. I am not a fan of David Cameron and I certainly did not vote for him, but the fact that he jumped ship just when the country needed him most is shameful. After the Panama papers revelation, most people wished for his resignation, but yet he stayed on, and now when we need him, he leaves us.
And now they’re attacking Jeremy Corbin, who I personally love. He is an amazing leader, so down to earth and genuine, and he deserves to be the head of the Labour party, because he is what young people need, he is our voice in Parliament. And it is unacceptable that the Labour party are turning inward to find a scapegoat for the mess that we’re in. Jeremy is not at fault. David Cameron is, for allowing the public to vote in the referendum in the first place. He should have made the decision for us to stay in the EU as he is our elected leader.
And then there is Boris Johnson. One of the key player in the leave campaign, and now he has decided to pull himself out of the running to be Prime Minister. I never wanted him to be PM, and to be honest, the thought of him being PM gave me nightmares. But the fact that one of the key figures in the leave campaign does not want to facilitate the leave negotiations with the EU says something about the whole thing.
This country is in a big mess, with talks of Scottish independence, Irish unification and London becoming an independent state (I wish), no one knows where we stand. And allowing Farage to speak in the EU makes it so much worse.
