With all the hustle and bustle in the news, am I the only person who doesn't understand it all?
I'm really not into politics as to be honest I don't understand it all. I mean I'm not dim, but I find it so complex and ever changing that I cant seem to get a grasp on it!
I always vote and did so when we had the referendum on Brexit. I voted to leave. Now whether or not you believe I made the right choice, I did what I believed to be the best thing at the time. I bought into the whole "Billions of pounds each week will be poured into the NHS "and "Immigration will be regulated" ideals that we were served up. Now before anyone jumps on me for the Immigration statement, i firmly believe that everyone in this world deserve a safe, warm, comfortable place to live and raise their families. I think it is right that those of us with more help those of us that are in danger or struggle. We are all humans and it doesn't matter what race, religion, colour or dress size we wear, everyone is important. I firmly believe that and have raised our children to believe the same way. However, We have a NHS service that is at breaking point from the sheer masses of people that use it and lack of funding, Our education system in our area is bursting at the seams, Their are millions of people who are unemployed and not enough jobs.
Although I don't believe this is all due to the immigration problem, I do believe it contributes to it. I know that without many migrant workers our industries would collapse. Nurses, Doctors, Agricultural workers, care homes etc, All these industries rely on migrant workers and they do a fantastic, wonderful job! When I was ill last year and my life hung in the balance, it was a team of Dr's and nurses from all different parts of the world that put me back together and cared for me and for that I am extremely grateful. But unfortunately we do have a null of people who come here and do not work, Claim benefits and bleed the system by abusing it.
The day before the Brexit vote the door knocked and a smartly dressed man proceeded to tell me that all these problems would be gone if we voted to leave. If people wanted to come to our country then they would have to have a trade and be useful to our country or be in danger or hardship if they stayed in the their home country. There would be so much more money for NHS and the country would prosper from not having to pay into the EU system. The man was from UKIP. He lied.
I bought into it and I regret it. I'm being totally honest here. I was naive and I regret it. I knew I had probably made a mistake the very next day when Nigel Farage resigned. Like a rat fleeing from a sinking ship!
Having said all of the above, I truly believe that we should still leave. We live in a democracy and the country voted. We spoke as a people and the vote decided we should leave. I truly believe that we should NOT have a second vote. I mean what are we going to do? Go for the best of three!?
If we believe in democracy then we should make the best of a bad job.
Deal or no deal? I honestly don't know. I don't understand how it all works to be honest. I don't understand the trade industry, Laws and all the other things that it will effect. But I do believe that it is a decision that we should stick to as to change the rules will make it undemocratic.
Well that's my opinion on it anyway! I'm sure I will be slaughtered for this post but I am telling it how I see it and as always I'm being honest. Let me know what you think but do realise any offencive comments will be removed.
Bye for now
