Thoughts on Unity and Forgiveness

As we approach the fateful hour when all British people lose our rights as EU Citizens, and we skulk off to face our bleak future alone, I feel the need to type something. If nothing else it stops me from punching the wall. And I do have some thoughts. They might even make some sense…

Unity and forgiveness are often portrayed as universally good things. The reality is a bit more complicated.

Last chance?

We go into a defining week for the United Kingdom in a terrible state[1]. On Thursday we face an election which could lead to economic ruin and the end of the UK.

counterfeit cabbages

“Trousers, you say? What on earth for?”

It has been brought to my attention that I haven’t been arsed to slag off the UK’s most egregious counterfeiter of cabbages since he was implausibly hoisted into high office by a small clique of dimwits who’s only possible excuse is that they got high in their offices and then voted for him “on a lark”.

Let’s put that right.

Woo Yeah!

What is this strange, unfamiliar feeling? I feel that I remember it from the distant past. Oh yes! It the unexpected joy of waking up to election results that are, so far, not completely shit.

So how do we sort out Brexit then?

Brexit has gone a bit quiet. It is almost like nobody knows what to do next. There is clearly no majority in Parliament for any option. So… What then? Just snooze into “no deal”? Screw that! Here is my plan.

No-Deal Brexit Plan

I have done all my no-deal Brexit contingency planning. I am willing to share this with you but the plan relies on absolute secrecy so you must sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement not to tell anybody. Please tick the box below, print and sign the article, and then fax it back to me before reading further.

☐  I agree to be legally bound by this bullshit NDA.
