Is anyone else feeling stunned after the outcome yesterday? I certainly am.
In Labour heartlands there is a predominately leave vote, and if Labour were to come out all for Remain, or a second referendum we’d be looking at an increased majority and increasingly right wing government – if that’s possible!
May is herself, increasingly stubborn, and perhaps very ill. She is incapable of compromise and full of hate.
The people are looking on appalled at the irresponsibility of it all. There is no honesty, just hostility.
It is a critical time for our constitution, for our democracy, and for our society.
If a compromise can be established, and then confirmed with a confirmatory vote, we may find conclusion.
My hope is, that after this is all over, after the fight, whatever is the outcome, that as in 1945, after the war, the Labour Party can win the peace and put paid to the poverty and the austerity and the injustice which caused all this mess in the first place, and that my grandchildren can have the same opportunities from socialism which I have had.
We have to hope.
