Its the day of voting, and of course everyone is keen to make their views known and push forward their ideology and opinions. In that respect, I may as well say I’ll vote to leave, simply because potentially seceding from one unaccountable bloc of power may potentially lead to other such secession-based movements and ideas. That’s it. That’s the only reason I can possibly think to bother voting at all. Leaving one centralised power hopefully causes a whole raft of decentralisation.
To those who vote remain, good luck to you. I’m sure those who are serious about staying in have weighed up the main arguments much like I have. And to those who are still undecided, just don’t vote. It will make no tangible difference if we stay or leave, except for short-term uncertainty or risk. We’ll inevitably end up with some pathetic trade deal which guarantees a corporate economy and that suits the ruling classes of the EU and the UK. If we have a recession, then we’ll only have accelerated a certainty that would have developed from the British housing bubble and the debt deflation present in the Eurozone.
Whether we vote to stay or leave, we’ll still have a Conservative Prime Minister who is determined to build an economic “recovery” on the back of private indebtedness and the predominance of the financial sector. Big business will still be in the driving seat no matter the decision. We’ll still have mass migration because both Johnson and Cameron are fundamentally pro-immigration, as are their major donors. We’ll still have a foreign policy crafted by American neoconservatives, and an economic policy dictated by vested interests and the mysticism of globalisation.
If this vote really mattered, a referendum wouldn’t have been called. If radical change were possible, the idea of voting on the EU and our position within it would be relegated to the fringes. So keep calm, and stop worrying. It really doesn’t matter.
