No, it ain’t a tough one at all, Deerey.
You didn’t want to leave the EU, I respect that, just as I respect everyone who voted in the same way you clearly did. I did want to leave the EU along with all the others who voted to do so. It’s called democracy. It’s up to you if you can’t respect that.
I’ve given the reasons that I made the decision that I did. What you and others don’t appear to understand or accept is that had the EU continued to be a ‘common market’ that would all have been fine and I’d have been very happy to stay. But it wasn’t. Leaving the EU wasn’t about economics for many, probably even the majority of people. It certainly wasn’t for me.
Are there winners and losers? Of course there are. Am I happy about those losing out? No, of course I’m not. In an ideal world there wouldn’t be any losers but we don’t and never can live in such a world, because it doesn’t and never can exist. Time will tell, but regardless of why I made my decision I strongly believe the UK will be better off economically now we’ve left the EU. The EU is a mess economically and we’re far better out of it.
Getting back to the music industry, I’ve been in it and it was crap. That’s why I left it. I’m sure it still is. However, the idea that Brexit means bands can’t be successful — whether here or overseas — is just total and utter nonsense.
BRI, this whole stuff about “gaslighting” is also rubbish. Sorry to say you’ve now sunk to the depths of others on this board. I have no intention of “making out the other side is nasty”. You couldn’t be further from the truth. But the truth seems to be the last thing you care about, otherwise you wouldn’t be coming out with the stuff you now are.
