I’ll come on this board as often or as little as I choose and if you don’t like it, tough. The reason I do so rarely is because there is no debate. Just the usual and very tedious insults — anyone who disagrees with the five or so usual suspects will know exactly what I’m talking about.
The position on the EU is a classic example. As with everything there are pros and cons on all sides, with many shades of grey in between but the remainers on here see everything in black and white; and, of course, they’re “always right”. This in itself reveals complete ignorance — and, no, that isn’t an insult but a statement of fact.
Obviously there will be downsides to leaving the EU but there will also be many benefits. We’re seeing them already with the vaccination programme. The UK Government’s undoubtedly been poor at handling the pandemic but it’s hardly alone — even those countries lauded “for getting things right” at the start are now struggling. Despite this some on here look for any excuse to accuse the Government of “killing thousands” then conveniently ignore the very simple fact that having the vaccination now will save thousands.
Heath demands to know why I haven’t responded to claims of Tory corruption. Because there’s no point is the answer — you’re not not interested in my views, Heath. Whatever I say you simply claim that Tories are all nasty, thieving racists. In fact it’s highly unlikely to be corruption and far more likely to be incompetency, but never mind the truth. Talking of the truth, what about the Labour Liverpool mayor just arrested over corruption? Or the Labour Liverpool councillor suspended over anti-Semitism. The fact is that all political parties have good and bad people, corruption and racism, with Labour every bit as bad as any other.
But let’s finish on the EU. These claims that all is hunky-dory in the EU are garbage. Cracks are showing all over the place as the reality of Brexit finally dawns on its member states while fall-out from the pandemic are going to be massive. If you think we have problems in the UK they’re nothing compared to what’s going to hit the EU; and, of course, they won’t now have our money to help them out. Even the German economy was struggling before the pandemic and after the dust has settled the bill’s will start coming in from the basket cases of Southern Europe and, yes, France.
I’d wait to see what happens over the next 12 months before making any claims about EU member states being happy.
