Even a month or two ago, I’d intellectually kinda assumed that the Tories would win due to being on the side of having a simple united message, whereas the anti-brexit side is split between 2-3 parties and Labour has a very muddled message.
It’s just, now that it’s actually rapidly approaching, my emotional response has kicked in and i’m depressed.
I’ve missed out on most of the details of the actual campaigning, but it Labour and the Lib Dems haven’t been plastering “He only got a worse version of May’s deal by capitulating, and now he thinks he can get a fair deal from the EU and the US??!!!” over every available surface in the UK then they’re idiots. Project Fear be damned.
As you said though, nothing seems to stick.
I mean, does anyone really believe his promises on the NHS? Even if he actually means it, does anyone think the US aren’t going to insist on greater access for their drug companies, or that Boris is going to be in any position of strength to resist that?
And now he’s talking about getting rid of the license fee (and therefore basically the BBC).
I feel like I’m watching a horror movie where I’m shouting at the people on screen not to do the stupid thing, but they’re carrying on obliviously.
Kinda ironically, given how the UK might need to rely on the oft-bleated WTO-rules soon, I note that the WTO is currently entirely non-functional as Trump has blocked appointment of any judges.
Ok, I’ve vented now.
