Jesus I despise Brexit.
May 04, 2018, 13:49
Two things:
1. Been in hospital for major operation, performed by utterly brilliant team of 12, only one of whom was British, led by Spanish anaesthetists and uber cool 30 year old black French surgeon indistinguishable from Bob Marley, radiating competence, humour and leadership.

2. Out now and OK, watching lunchtime telly and a succession of street interviews in Dudley Market, absolutely wreaking of naked, vile racism and calls for Brexit to happen asap.

Fuck 'em all. And no, that's not the medication talking.

What if it is the medication talking and the people espousing Brexit on telly were also the hospital staff, in some Gillian-esque hallucination?

"Hi, I'm Elon Muff and would like to talk to you about rocket. Our team of space scientists are currently aboard Arugula I, the first manned rocket orbiting Mars, controlled by vegetables."

Hi Nigel, sounds like you had a good, positive experience in the hospital. Brexit aside, I hope you are back on your feet in time to see the bluebells. Wishing you a very speedy recovery.

Thanks June. I only mentioned it to express the fact when you see the actual coal face you realise the truth and how it can't be manipulated. I also saw the less well financed side of it - long rows of patients on trollies in the classic wartime scenes - they really exist. I don't see how that will get better in post Brexit, poorer Britain under Prime Minister Gove and Health Minister Rees Mogg!

As for bluebells, haven't seen those yet but at this moment 2,000 Morris dancers are streaming past my window (honestly, it's a festival). Unless that's the medication!

Sorry to hear you've been ill Nigel, hope you're on the mend. At least we are finally getting some cheery weather and nature is re-envigorated.

My views on Brexit remain unchanged, you'll be shocked to hear.
Jeez

I'm sorry you've been unwell, but really what you are trying to do is the same method the Nazis used in the 1930s. The way people constantly link Brexit to racism is 1984 style brainwashing. I voted for Brexit, and I have been in a mixed race relationship for 20 years. We both want a proper Brexit. The EU is a capitalist club which when it doesn't work takes it out on the working class poor (see Greece/Spain/Ireland).
Does looking like a cool Bob Marley make you a better surgeon? No, and that's inverse recism. What's wrong with English people? Do you think the people of Dudley are more racist that those of Rome who attack every English supporter that visits their city?

You hate your own country but love everyone else.

Well, as it happens I know Dudley and various Black Country towns extremely well and I assure you lots and lots of people voted Brexit precisely for racist reasons and saying so is NOT using nazi brainwashing tactics.

And opposing Brexit does NOT mean I hate my country. (It's an outrage you should make such an accusation actually).

Crikey, please wind your neck in. I have an opinion. It's a forum. C'est tout.

I love Monty Python, but I dislike post ice-age Franco era cognitive behavioural speech therapy bellends.

If they had an entry in the ASCII it would be character 32

Just vacuous

But maybe it is actually information that makes the world go round. Without information there couldn't possibly be any love - it's the only thing that separates us from the animals, isn't it?

Even the thick ones.

All that enjoying life in the sun and having black hair and being a little chunky on the side - never studying medicine studying finance or media, having MDMA on tap

Having simply the joy of being alive for the past 10,000 years - I mean, you can't fault them really but accusing somebody of pointing out anything outside of this post ice-age North West expansion is just racist really isn't it?

Where's the gold?

It would be futile to say there's no link between the EU Ref and the rise in hate crime, the figures from the HO and Police have repeatedly shown this is in fact vary much the case. Just because you didn't vote with 'racist' intentions many other people did and have repeatedly used it as as excuse to spew their bigoted bile.

Like Nigel I know the area very well, having been born there, and although it's a very beautiful part of the country it's very isolated and many people there have very racist views, some of whom are family members.

I voted remain, leaving the EU is utterly senseless and not one official report shows that it's going to end well. I live in Wales so we're going to be doubly screwed! To say it's a capitalist club really ignored the fact that so is the UK government. Personally I want the objectivity the EU offers over the staunch anti-human ignorance and bigotry of the uk govt. But each to their own I suppose.
