The Warning was There

The Warning was There

The morning after the day of very mixed reactions to ‘Brexit’, the reality is starting to sink in. Nigel Farage, who campaigned for us to leave the EU, immediately backtracked on one of its key claims – that £350 million a week would be shift to the NHS. The Pound has lost considerable value (reaching a 31 year low) and our economy has slipped, with $12 trillion wiped off global markets to boot. Our Prime Minister is resigning (I suppose there is a silver lining to everything) and we have been plunged into uncertainty.

We were sold a lie, based on nationalist chest-thumping and the scare-mongering of the Reactionary Right, who turned this into a debate on sovereignty and trumped up impressions of Brussels’ power over us. Now we need to pick up the pieces.

    I literally can’t believe this happened. I can’t believe fear and ignorance won over so many people, and made so many people make such a foolish decision. On the bright side? It’s cheaper for Aussies to now fly to England and the conversion rate is much better in our favour. Last time it was brutal.
