Well, today is the day in the UK. All you lot get to vote, again, after 3.5 years, to try, again, to be heard. BREXIT, this time for sure! Maybe.
So last news I saw had Conservatives set to win, Labor being shunned, and The Brexit Party in a small role that people had no idea what the impact might be.
So this posting is here just as a place to keep track of things as they unfold. To post commentary or complaints about the whole process, or the outcome, or just that you have to do this all over again, again. Or to cheer should Jeremy Corbin get sacked.
With that, we cast our fate to the winds and hope for the best possible.
As 1/2 my family are in the UK, this does rather matter to me. Mum was one of 9 kids. While one went to Canada, one to New Jersey, and she to California, there’s still the other 6 that stayed in the UK. Then there’s all those cousins and such from just a bit upstream… There’s also a lot in Australia as her Dad’s Brother, also a Sailor in Her Majesty’s Merchant Marine, stopped there on one voyage and decided to stay, so a lot in Australia are likely watching this too. Mum’s best friend from England ended up in New Zealand after W.W.II so there’s this global diaspora interested in the results.
Now this global family & friends group gets to await the end of the day of voting in the UK. Please choose wisely. We’re all rooting for you.
