Will we Stay or Will we Go...?
Using the 'Learning for Life' centre, part of the museum, as a voting booth may well have struck some of those gathering to choose their nations future as appropriate. There can be no doubt that if the 'Little Englanders' and those who wish to bring back the Empire get their way and follow Boris (Let me be Prime Minister) Johnson then the nation is done the tubes without much hope of redemption. The great fear of immigrants 'Come over here taking our jobs, living off the dole,' in areas where there are no immigrants has been exaggerated by Messrs Farage & Johnson and others for their own ends. Far too many Englishmen, and it is Englishmen not Welsh, Irish or Scots who follow Johnson, are happy to believe the rabblerousing of these desperate men.
Still it was useful as it enabled me to put my cross in the box marked 'Scottish Nationalist' and really confuse the folks counting the ballot papers late tonight. It appears 46 and a half million people can vote today, whether the majority will be able to is a question. Hopefully we have a 75% turnout as at least we will get a decent view of peoples opinions. Opinions that have been hard to discover as the lies, boredom and sheer incompetence of the protagonists has put many off. It was difficult to attempt to work out the truth but I thought I got some idea, whether it was right we will have to wait and see.
Tomorrow about seven we might know the answer as to who has won.
