I am not surprised. I guess it’s a sign of the times. Disunity of a nation comes as a result of the inner core being unsatisfied and corrupted by greed, self-interest and pursuit of power. A copy of the article may be downloaded by clicking on: EUROVISION OR EUROBREXIT
Recent articles on the subject document well the self-interest and personal agendas. Which leads one to believe that without the empirical evidence it is fair to say that both arguments are reaching to the undecided and fuelling the controversy with fear rather than facts and realistic scenarios. I am of the belief that many are misguided in what is in the best interest of Britain and should take a leaf out of the late President Kennedy speech, where he stated “Ask not what your country can do for you but rather what you can do for your country” This should be a good reminder to all those voting on what is in the best interests of Britain.
Furthermore I am not convinced that the arguments for a Brexit has the right mix of metaphors to describe the current state of the Britain and its correlation with Australia. Those on the conservative side would like to think that Britain and Australia are one and the same, but in reality Australia has grown and developed into a nation of its own and as such we are two distant (geographically) and separate sovereign nations.
Had Winston Churchill being alive today he would be horrified to learn that the British Isles that he loved has become the catalyst for sending Europe into another global war that will eclipse all others. When I write of war, I do not mean a war in the physical sense but rather a battle of ideologies, trade, resources and the endless battles of the mind. Which in the end will only bring about a misery and disaster on a nation that is best to remain within a united Europe.
Still, reading recent articles on both sides of the coin does send some shock waves in the thinking of the current elite establishment and one wonders whether the same sentiments are felt by the elite in Great Britain. It would be of interest to identify the classes of people in Europe who make up the two parties and what their ideologies are and what drives them to vote one way or another.
To leave or not to leave the European Union is not a question of when or why, but how will a disunited nation stem the flow of a severed artery. In the end, what is decided by the few may not always what is best for the many. Therefore the Eurovision may not be over until the fat lady sings and when she does, we hope that whoever she is singing for is in the best interests of a united Europe with or without Britain.
As always, my apologies for the poor grammar, punctuation and savagery of the Aussie English language. All that I can say is that it is great to be alive and one does not give up in the face of adversity.
