I pity people who are so snake bit that they can't succeed as people or as nations and that they must continue to blame everyone and everything instead of actually working to make their nation better. That goes with a view that their nation cannot ever be better.
That I despair of the petty minded individuals in my own country that believe they can turn the country back to 1953 just by leaving the EU, dont imagine I have any less derision for the EU for taking what was at heart a fundamentally great idea, and turning it into a malfunctioning bureaucracy tended by moral Pygmy's.
You've given up. You have no hope and you don't WANT hope.
Im really not a Brexiter, and im really not a Remainer. Im just one of the multitude that dont really care enough about either position, being dragged into an unwholesome mess by people that ought to know better.
Stuart, you're perfectly willing, scratch that, eager to give all of the decisions to your supposed betters but you're darned quick to then kibitz from the cheap seats at anything and everything they do. You want no responsibility to act to improve things, even just as a voter/citizen but you've made an art at complaining about others and stating it's over. Ryan is right, you don't want hope and you sure don't want the responsibility that comes with trying to help find and support solutions. You want others to wave a magic wand to make things better but you know that will never happen and you'll never accept it even if it does. You've found comfort in being the martyr and damn anyone who points out the fallacy. Don't give up. The UK shouldn't give up. Don't embrace the suck and wear it as a mantle of superior status. To get corny, Do not go gentle into that good night... Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
