Electioneering, but is some of the money coming in an attempt to influence Brexit?
The big problem is that NONE of the three main political party leaders is that attractive to voters - Labour has a leader who is seen as being more friendly with terrorists than their victims and de facto supports and facilitates anti-Jewish racism in his political party whilst the Liberal Democrat leader has stood up and proudly proclaimed that if there was another Brexit referendum and the result was a resounding 'out' she would just ignore that result - because she wants to remain in! I have seen allegations suggesting that her husband's job sees him receiving funds from the EU, so therefore it could be said that she has a financial interest in us being in the EU.
Many people also see Boris as being a serial liar, but perhaps in the sense of a typical politician and snake oil salesman, although it is true that he left his wife for another woman and then had a row with her, and whilst this was in her home it was so loud that neighbours recorded some of it and supplied this recording to the media to make public! I see Boris as being 'owned'. He also has royal blood (via a convoluted blood line which started from a concubine - so in a way is descended from a b*st*rd, although this would not matter if only all his actions were seen as being wholly honourable)
"A pox on all their houses" sounds like an appropriate comment.
Cynics might argue that this helps to prove the proposition that democracy is not suited to resolving major issues where the public is closely divided. Those who lose don't feel that the terms of the fight were fair. As an example, Hillary supporters argue that she received millions more votes than Trump. Unfortunately, elite rule leads to them making decisions that have far less than majority support. So we are back at the eternal questions of how to be led and how to be guarded from our guardians.
When logic does not prevail ....
(seriously, how many "elections" have the people stated that they want out? If the people had any sense at all they would lobby for a "law" saying that the Brexit vote can be held only once every 25 years.)
The opposition resorts to name calling and screaming. Moving the "energy" of a calm rationale debate to an emotionally charged rant. If you can't control logic to your advantage, it is easier to control emotions as they are not rationale.
And now, Brexit is delayed from Halloween 2019 to end of January 2020
But instead there will be a general election on 12th December. Depending on the result Brexit might end up being cancelled (worst case scenario).
As today is 31st October it means that the pre-Chrismas era will be largely dominated by politics. I wonder how that will impact trade, especially for retailers - for many of whom this time period is vital for their well-being throughout the rest of the year.
