Very English Reasons to Bremain in Europe

Wether it’s wiser to Brexit or Bremain is Anybody’s Guess
The EU has been around about as long as I have. Now we, the British electorate, uninformed by any facts anybody in power can agree upon, have to decide wether to stay in the EU or not.

Lucky us.
Most Britishers seem to be either confused or apathetic with regards to Europe. In truth, nobody really knows whether Britain will be better off tying the knot with the EU or not. Any opinion is just guesswork.

So here’s my best guess.
(Not that I think that voting on Europe will make any difference to a foregone conclusion, polling stations being as illusory as our democracy

For the most English of reasons (shorter queues at airports) I voted Remain.

And all the health professionals I’ve seen recently at my local hospital have come from elsewhere in Europe. (They stand out coz my own British consultant is a right dick who doesn’t understand my wish to be pain free and not so drugged up I can’t think. At least people from outside our island tend to listen.)

I’ve got friends who come from elsewhere in Europe too.
Voting Brexit feels a bit, well, unfriendly.
Certainly the discussion in itself seems impolite. After all, Europe can hear us!

nb. (‘come from elsewhere in Europe’ is more to type / read, but the fact that it’s necessary is a reminder that the Brits are in Europe, anyway.)

I also like that Europe’s not had any infighting resulting in a major war recently. Being in the European Union might help this to continue?

Chaos in Slow Motion
Anyway “The EU’s rubbish, but leaving it will be chaos.” (Jeremy Hardy)
It’d be total havoc kept in check I suspect, only by the agonising slowness that characterises changes in British government.

The 4 horsemen of the apocalypse could be summoned whichever way you vote, according to who you listen to, so who knows?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯     deadpigcameron
Certainly not Cameron, our pig loving prime minister. Even tho he’s campaigning for Remain,  apparently his“instinct” is for Brexit.

I think Cameron’s clever bit of policy-avoiding policy is just avoiding responsibility.

There’ll sure  be trouble ahead whatever.
This is true whatever the government’s policies. It’s just in samsara’s nature for things to fall apart around us.

Sometimes that’s a lazy Sunday afternoon sort of disintegration; sometimes it hurts more; but entropy is the inescapable 2nd law of thermodynamics.

And when it all goes wrong, as it inevitably will given that we all live in samsara, a crappy state of dissatisfaction, unknowing and confusion; we can just blame Europe.
Il est simple, n’est-ce pas?

    It will be a close call I think, I shall vote remain, we rely on our overseas colleagues to fill professional down to the less demanding tasks. On other issues I am totally confused.

    What now? Will have a few unsettling months, ? Years ? Before things change, but will it be for the better.
    On the lighter side, Brussels will not be able to impose quotas and the like on us.
