I’ll probably blog about Brexit quite frequently over the next few weeks. I know I’m supposed to vary my subjects, reflecting my life as a guy with a disability, but the truth is I’m now becoming very worried indeed about what is about to happen in the UK. The more I read, the more frightening it seems and he more certain I am that it must be stopped at all costs. I just came across this Guardian article by a Labour MP spelling out what is going on. If we leave the Eu, we’ll have to join another international trade body. The people pushing brexit ” want to take the UK out of the EU and join us instead to the North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta) or the Pacific Alliance, offering free trade with these countries but none of the environmental, labour or consumer protection offered by the EU.” Our consumer and human rights stand to be ripped to shreds as the Outists seek to transform the country into an ultra capitalist hell; the postwar, communitarian, liberal consensus will be a thing of the past. I went to university and live pretty independently, but that was only possible due to various state-based support structures – structures which now stand to be thrown out the window as the economy is re-oriented to a much more commercial, American style one. I do not want that to happen. Brexit must not go ahead, surely we must urgently do something to stop it.
