The weather has finally turned !
Last weekend the clouds rolled away as temperatures reached the mid 20 Celsius. Yesterday it went even higher and today it has reached 30,scorching weather for us Brits,maybe cool for people in other parts of the world. Of course for us it meant little as I had to work and any other time we both had off,was spent packing up CDs,DVDs and also sorting out boxes and boxes of loft stuff,collected over the years. In amongst all the concert tickets,free CDs and programme’s I found school reports going back to the 1960s and photos from times long forgotten.
Moving on,changing times,this brings me to the major topic in the UK recently…Trident and Brexit. Trident divides the nation almost as much as Brexit with those who want to maintain the status quo voting for renewal,while those who don’t want it and think its a waste of money voting to scrap it. As a peace lover and a believer in a new and better future I would have voted to scrap it as what’s the use of having something you don’t want to use.People will say these weapons have kept the peace for over 70 years but have they ?
Korean,Vietnamese,Iraqi and afghan wars have all come and gone while the only thing that’s stopped nuclear weapons being used is the politicians and military men whose hands they are in. Memories of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are still in everyone’s minds so scraping them wouldn’t be such a loss. Brexit too can be seen as a way forward too,British people still respect the Germans,French and all the other EU countries so what’s the problem with not being in or a part of the european business and social club ?
The main reason we voted out was just to get a hold of our own country.This would allow business with the whole world,not on the say so of the EU,to manage our own finances and of course to allow fully trained professionals in,not just everyone. We are after all just a small nation and masses of new settlers does change the social and actual landscape amazingly.This doesn’t mean were are at all racist just like the Australian and Americans aren’t. It also means had the EU sorted out the mass migrations through Turkey in the first place, it may have not come to a point where so many of us voted to leave the EU.
