Brexit

I happen to believe that deciding to leave the European Union is the worst mistake that the UK has made in years. It smacks of plot by the revolving door of right-wing business leaders and politicians to “take back control” so that they can increase their profits and influence.

They want to roll back EU regulations which provide protection for workers’ rights, the environment and public health and safety, to privatise more of the NHS and to slash funding for any organization which disagrees with them.

They ensure that their friends who control the right-wing tabloid press peddle endless misinformation about the EU and find any excuse to foment anti-immigration sentiment. It is no coincidence that the wealthy owners of these newspapers are well aware of the EU’s plans to clamp down on off-shore wealth and tax avoidance in 2019.

I feel so sad and sorry for the young people. Many of them did not vote for this but they are the ones who will mostly have to pay for it.

Perhaps I will be proved wrong but I don’t see any evidence of this yet.
