An Uncertain Brexit

Before the EU referendum vote I attempted to gauge the feeling of the people around me. Testing the water by talking to people, listening to their views, in some instances arguing, is a much better barometer than a poll done by some highly paid bigwig sat in a London bubble.

During these discussions it became clear to me that the vote to leave the EU would prevail. Membership of the EU has been an open wound since we entered the club back in the 1970's. The toxic, sometimes moronic, arguments over the years have bitten deep into the British psyche. Brussels has been vilified and battered from pillar to post at every opportunity by the press barons and their willing accomplices who write for them. Highlighting interference in national affairs, cultural norms and a waste of money has been the staple headline for years.

But what did the British people actually vote for? Did they all vote for the same thing? Or were they just confused by the whole affair?

 

A War Weary Public

A War Weary Public

David Cameron’s push for British involvement in war in Iraq, and eventually Syria, is symptomatic of our leaders determination to make a lasting mark.

Blair’s administration will always be remembered for his Iraq war, supported by a dossier that no one believed in. Cameron often states intelligence as the reason for inclusion in the American lead bombing campaign to stop ISIS. Can anyone, truly, trust intelligence reports after Blair? Most think not.

   

Dubrovnik Review

Dubrovnik Review

This year’s holiday in the historic city of Dubrovnik probably hit every mark for us vacation-wise.

Bombed during the Balkan wars of the early 1990’s, this city sits imposingly on the Dalmatian coast. With its history, architecture and people, it’s a place that needs to be included on European bucket lists, for sure.

We enjoyed a ten day stay at the 3* Hotel Tirena in Babin Kuk, approximately 4km from the Old Town. This was a perfect location for our stay. The hotel features all the usual amenities: dining rooms (indoor and out), air-conditioning, bar, entertainment and activities for children, if you’re travelling as a family.

   

Cameron’s Legacy: Division in all it’s Glory

Cameron’s Legacy: Division in all it’s GloryIn todays world of Cameron’s austerity the notion that people in need of benefits, or people who are unemployed and need a leg up the career ladder, has been well and truly smashed. The demonisation of the poor, whether out of work, disabled or otherwise has taken on a distinctly unsavoury tone.

The Coalition of the willing, the Conservative and Liberal Democrats, has peddled the idea that only workers deserve anything out of this life. A term like “I support the hard working majority” is an example of seeds sowing division; almost subliminal in its tone. But it feeds people who, themselves, see that their lot isn't as cosy as they'd like it to be.

   

The War to End All Wars

Commemorations are all well and good. They're a time for reflection. Maybe a period of reconciliation. But I can't help but feel I'm gagging on a firing pin every time I hear a political leader say that we will "learn from the mistakes of the past."

It's patently obvious, they should.

The First World War - the war to end all wars - began one hundred years ago. Once Gavrilo Princip, described as a Bosnian-Serb radical, had fired the pistol that killed Archduke Ferdinand, the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, the road to war was paved with intent.

The whys and the wherefores of this catastrophe have been written about at great length, and expanded upon for this anniversary.
