Surely omnishambles will be the word of the 2019, at least for the UK. I am utterly saddened by the lack of leadership and example setting. MPs debate one thing, then vote against it. A British MEP inflicts a tirade of abuse on the European Parliament, but is responded to with supreme dignity. Our Government admits that Brexit will damage the country, but persist with it.
The sword of Damocles hangs over our country, perilously close to being unleashed. But what has been free is the hate and intolerance shown by certain sectors of society, generally the extreme right and the extreme left.
Rumour takes the place of researched fact. Campaigns were illegally funded, and almost certainly manipulated by other parties who wish to destabilise the EU.
I believe that the government needs to put its hands up and say sorry, we got it wrong, we rushed into something we didn’t understand, we should have spent a couple of years putting a proposal together and then asked you to decide.
