Right. Life goes on. I’ve weathered some personal shitstorms in my life, and until these things happened I never thought I’d cope. But I did.
Leaving the EU is likely going to be a shitstorm, at least at first. Over 48% of the population who voted are now going through a bit of a shitstorm. We’ve had our say, been outnumbered, and unless there’s anything we can do about it (??), then we will ride it out. Because we are still British and still European. We’re just no longer going to remain in this, as a friend put it (Sarah), “slightly naff clique” that is the EU.
So let’s not dispare (the general tone I’m seeing from most of my Facebook friends and my initial reaction) – it’s not going to do any good. As we’ve been shouting all along, we need to do this together, and that now means together with those who voted to leave. We all voted for the same reasons – because we want to do whats best for the country/ourselves, and this is what unites us. But, of course we all have different views. And now we need to work together to keep doing the best for the country.
‘RemaINers’: Don’t let this divide us. Don’t hate on those who voted leave. In doing that we’re being everything we disagreed with about the leave camp.
It’s sad/devastating/aggravating/frustrating that a campaign of fear and intolerance and ignorance may have been the reason that Leave won. But don’t let it be the reason for turning your back on your country. We voted IN, so let’s stay in GB for those same reasons.
