  • on thursday we had a referendum, which is like x factor but with ramifications 
  • it did not go well
  • 51.9% of people voted to leave the european union
  • so now we are leaving the eu
  • the “leave” campaign promised we’d have more money to spend on the nhs and less immigration if we left the eu
  • a few hours after they won they said this won’t happen
  • they also said they have no plan
  • like, on live tv
  • they said this
  • no one has a plan
  • the value of the pound crashed
  • our prime minister resigned
  • the conservative party, who are in power, are now wondering who should be in charge
  • at the moment it’s looking like a walking wig or a woman who views human rights as a minor inconvenience will be running the country by september
  • the labour party, who are in opposition, are arguing about who should be in charge
  • their leader is jeremy corbyn. imagine a british bernie sanders who looks as if he’s wondering if he left the gas on. that is him. basically he was elected to run for labour leader as a joke and then he actually ended up winning it. now everyone is walking out on him
  • the lib dems say they will ignore brexit and keep britain in the eu
  • do you know who the lib dems are? no, no one does, they used to be a thing but now they have 8 mps
  • their mps can literally share a table at nandos
  • our chancellor of the exchequer gave a speech to try to calm the stock markets down
  • the stock markets calmed down for a bit
  • then it lost its chill and we lost our aaa credit rating
  • this is bad because economy things??? its complicated
  • oh yeah and we just got kicked out of the euros 
  • the euros is football, actual football, im looking at you america with your football that does not involve feet in a significant way
  • so we have effectively left europe twice in one week
  • scotland want to leave britain
  • ireland want to leave britain
  • and wimbledon started today
  • wimbledon, okay
  • normally, the big story
  • the only news story
  • at this time of the year
  • is wimbledon
  • and now
  • the country is falling apart
  • and the news does not know what to do
  • because it opens with “brexit is happening and we’re all freaking out” and ends with “british chances at wimbledon are looking good this year”
  • as if they’re forgetting
  • no one is running the country right now
  • carol i don’t care about the weather for wimbledon i care about THE ECONOMY
  • we are all confused and also the weather is awful

Ok this did make me smile…esp the Carol Wimbledon weather bit.

my fucking god…..

somebody shoot me

“Even though I voted to leave, this morning I woke up and I just — the reality did actually hit me,” one woman told the news channel ITV News. “If I’d had the opportunity to vote again, it would be to stay.”

The term ‘I’m surrounded by idiots’ as never been more accurate right now

So yeah….some political stuff has been happening over here (I’m in one of the few places to vote remain) and it’s been an odd environment ever since, especially yesterday at work. I work in an NHS hospital so you can probably figure out what that was like. One of my colleagues said everyone was being nicer then normal, verbal greetings in corridors etc. I just felt that everyone was trying to remain in their own little bubbles and crack on as normal.

Haven’t a clue how this is going to pan out. I have everything crossed that something good will come of it all – kinda wishing I’d bought my $$ before the £ took a nosedive but hey-ho here’s hoping it goes up again before Florida.
