THE RUNAWAY TRAIN

entry picture

(It's all kicking off tonight. Can't wait)

 

The runaway train went over the cliff and she blew

Woo-oo-woo

The runaway train went over the cliff and she blew

Woo-oo-woo

The driver never considered “What if?”

You’d think that she’d been at a spliff

And she blew blew blew blew blew.

 

The runaway train went over the edge and she blew

Woo-oo-woo

The runaway train shot over the ledge and she blew

Woo-oo-woo

The passengers cried “Over we go”

The driver she had pledged them so

And she blew blew blew blew blew.

 

The runaway train then flew through the air and she blew

Woo-oo-woo

The passengers, though, hadn’t a care as she flew

Woo-oo-woo

They raised their voices, all you could hear

Was “Don’t be fooled by Project Fear”

And she blew blew blew blew blew.

 

The runaway train crashed into the ground and she blew

Woo-oo-woo

The runaway train crashed into the ground and she blew

Woo-oo-woo

The passengers belatedly found

That everyone was disaster bound

And she blew blew blew blew blew.

It is indeed strange, Po and MC, that we should each be content with the way things have panned out, MC as a Leaver and me as a Remainer. I suspect it’s mostly to do with the Deal, which seems likely to result in either No Deal or 2nd Vote (and likely Remain).

I am so pleased to see how us 'Brits' can agree to differ.

Thanks JC. In fairness, I am content with the risk taken in this high
stakes state of affairs. What I'm not happy about is the way our
politicians have conducted themselves over my lifetime when it
was their duty to make the electorate fully aware of what was planned at the outset - clearly known to those who have been signing up to things ever since the trading concept was put to -
and agreed by the people of the country, even though it saw us persuaded to abandon our Commonwealth allies in the process.
Not a creditable carry-on whatever way it is looked at, considering
what had so recently gone before. And now we see a "sovereign Europe" seeking its own army! Napoleon, the Kaiser and the Fuhrer would surely be nodding happily. Those seeking
political power should be given a psychiatric evaluation at the outset and regular lie-detector tests thereafter. 😫

Then be happy with the gamble you’ve taken, MC.

If we had always "played safe" our national story would have been
very different and we need only remember it's a vote to be able to
decide things for ourselves rather than wait on 27 other agendas to
decide for us. Why would that appeal to the English - let alone the rest of the UK? The story continues.....

Which still rather begs the question why you would vote for something which you don’t know how it will turn out.

JC - the word "sovereign" seems to have been lost somewhere - supplanted by convenience. How interesting - with no hint of irony
evident - to witness the present French finance minister talk of "sovereign Europe" in his interview on "Hard Talk" (BBC News
Channel) while his own country is seized by riots that protest against
their leader as a "president for the rich".(read "elite"...a word that
is more accurate in the EU power-grab scenario).

The problem for Leavers is now what it was when they voted. They don’t know what they would get. Which, to my mind, always made it a silly thing to do.

Being "shafted" by one's own elected representatives is never less
than painful - and my memory still reminds me that it is "par for the
course" for past political behaviour from those closely supportive of
the EU and its methods. The UK media, heavily connected with politics and politicians, have been less than partial
in its choice of interviews and reports
following the parliamentary votes -
totally excluding the leader of UKIP, the
driving force behind the desire to return
to national sovereignty/self-government.
This just adds to the public mistrust.
Personally, I have this to say - copied to correspondence to the media and to my
MP -
During my working life, I took an oath of allegiance to our sovereign
lady, Queen Elizabeth, her heirs and successors. Unlike certain
members of parliament, past and present, I do not consider it to
be transferable to the EU, its heirs and successors.

Realising you’ve been shafted is very painful, MC. Even more so when you’ve done it to yourself.

1. Always worth hearing your witty ditties tied in with tunes I recall.
2. The vote was widely forecast - yet another false step on a
series of false steps designed to remove Brexit and return us
to the tender control of the EU.
3. 2nd Referendum? Does anyone remember the profligacy
involved in the government/leaflet campaign prior to the
Remain/Leave vote...making us aware of all the "dangers"
of a departure from the EU - that it was an irrevocable step
that once taken could not be reversed? How could anyone
NOT have known of what was being chosen when their votes
were cast? Mentally ill people are disallowed from voting as I
recall. Perhaps obtuse people should also be excluded.
4. If a 2nd vote IS obtained and it confirms the original vote to
leave - what then?
5. If May and her government had really wanted to obey
the majority vote to leave she/they would have sought to
commence repealing the European Communities Act 1972
and set out the terms for leaving at the outset. "Getting a
deal" is and has been just a political ploy to bring about a
scenario which points to No Deal Brexit; and that having been
decided by the engineers of this farce as unacceptable
indicates the hope that an exhausted British people will
be persuaded to return to the fond bosom of the EU.
Moral: Faint Hearts never won Fair Freedom!

Thanks, P.O. and Tim.
The irony is that despite my having a grudging respect for her for trying to deliver this (which I oppose) in contrast to the double-dyed self-servers within her own party and The Invisible Man leading the Labour Party, I’m hoping for a massive defeat for her tonight, bringing the prospect of a 2nd vote one step nearer.
