I’ve read posts about the ‘unpatriotic’ Bremoaners, as Theresa Mayhem calls us, and criticism of us challenging the vote.
I am sorry but I have to respectfully disagree. A move so essential and far reaching should not be decided on a thin margin and excluding Brits abroad, or even EU citizens, settled in the country for 23 years. In Germany – and Turkey – such major decisions need to have a clearer majority, not just 50%, but 60 or 75.
To stop fighting for your believes isn’t un-democratic or a sign of being a sore loser but holding on to what you think is right and best for all. We can’t brush faults in the system away by saying it’s done so let’s ignore the obvious. The referendum system needs reassessing.
Re: Theresa Mayhem – she isn’t doing this to follow the will of the people but to chase the right wing voters, just as she sucked up to the remain camp when she thought they were more likely to support her career
May’s rhetoric since she was elected home secretary and now PM has been homophobic, racist and divisive. She should be standing up for minorities as a leader and do what Gary Lineker does if she wants to make Britain work for everyone. Sadly, I’m not one she includes in her little Britain – at best she tolerates me regardless of contributions I made to this country, only because she can’t get rid of me legally.
Her speeches at the Party conference were chilling, as is the extra level of bureaucracy at every corner now experienced for foreigners. Renewing your driving licence or applying for citizenship – after 25 years in the country, makes you feel very unwelcome.
She sits quiet as newspaper headlines about truck drivers openly incite racism. In Germany our older generation was judged for standing by and it was said “You might as well have done this yourself, because you let it happen.”
She made it obvious she wants to abolish human rights and workers protection to a large extent, using the Brexit vote as mandate. How can we sit quietly and watch? It’s a democratic right to disagree and our duty to speak up against this madness foretold.
Instead she tries to silence us by calling us names. A leader she is not in the good sense of the word.
If I didn’t live in such a lovely safe bubble with very friendly people around me, and didn’t have UK citizens to look after, I would be gone, too, as many hardworking and contributing Polish people do now. I don’t blame them.
Come on Britain, you’re better than the Daily Mail!
