O very grand couple I know ( because I am very nice) made up their minds on the vote based on a “toss up” between the availability of narrow shoes from Italy and the thought of the Royal Family wearing German uniforms. The former did not compensate for the awful thought of the latter so they voted for Brexit. So did I, a month ago by post. But many of those who exercise their right to vote in this precious democracy of ours are viciously bitter, so much so that the subject must be avoided in the same way that in the good old days, sex money and religion were not up for discussion in polite society. I have already been subjected to mad tirades on the subject…… but you mark my words a lot of people voted for Remain who will now claim they backed the winning side all along. What idiot would call two referendums in the space of two years anyway the result of the second sure to shoot the first in the foot. Think of the millions the so called Scottish Independence vote cost? So bye bye Scotland then or is it???
The Brits are very canny and this was a very class driven affair, Downing Street was too posh, the sound common sense of the voice on the street. Me …. Well, I have been around the block, TB ,root canal treatment, impecuniosity, prison visiting and hard work…. And the real tester, many years at the sharp end of political life where you have to role your sleeves up, it soon sorts the sheep etc…. that’s the thing about the Queen she would be the first to clear up the dogs mess ( I know this you see) . Wealthy people who come to live here get the right to vote from their lofty privileged life in a condescending bored voice sort of way, ( and don’t get The Queen ) have absolutely no knowledge of the hard earned brilliance of Our Great Heritage love it or lose it, we did, thank God.
