Brexit sentiments are not “the genuine fears of hard working people!”


Half of Brits, according to latest polls, want to leave the EU. I shall not stay here, when the country crumbles to pieces and human rights get cut the way social services are cut at present. The problem is that both Tories and Labour bent down for too long to populist sensationalist ethnocentric phobia on the excuse that these expressions were “genuine fears of hard working people.” They are not! They are the misguided scapegoating of immigrants and the EU for the sell out of this country and all its inequalities from top down over centuries and decades. Does it hurt too much to point fingers at fine distinguised people just because of their position and because they are also Brits and above all English, or is it an inability to do so, because somehow the state of order here is accepted and people feel it is easier to blame outsiders? That attitude we know has amongst others let to decades of whitewashing of sexual abuse cases. You could not possibly blame the homegrown privileged, could you? But there is hope. Once Britain closes itself off, it will have to find new victims to blame. Perhaps this would induce a closer look at how power is divided here, given not by merit, but mostly by innate or economic advantage.
