I am sick to the back teeth of reading about doom and gloom about England’s exit from Europe and for the record the vote didn’t go my way.
I am amazed and dismayed in equal measure at peoples understanding of the most basic of fundamental rights as a citizen and that it is one person, one vote and the winner is the one with the most votes.
It is a very simple proposition.
All I have heard since last Friday morning from the media and people I have met is how did this happen, it’s not the result we expected. I am sure when Gove and Johnson woke up on Friday morning and by the expressions on the photographs neither of them expected it either.
That is the trouble with life it is unpredictable and we should be prepared for that.
We are now entering the stage in the process where everyone who didn’t get what they wanted is starting to look for scapegoats, someone to blame for what has happened and that is disgraceful.
Often it is the weakest in our society that is by nature natural victims of this abhorrent behaviour fuelled by politicians and the media who spend a great deal of time demonising them and using the resultant aftermath to get elected.
So my challenge this week and I invite you to do the same and that is looking for someone who will step up to the plate and be a leader who will bring the country together. I don’t care which party they belong to, what faith they hold I just want someone who can heal the division that has been created in this great country of ours.
Please have a little faith, a great deal of patience and above all ignore all the rhetoric that has been a part of our lives for the past three months or so.
Tonight I watched Coldplay perform to 120,000 people at Glastonbury, these people had a great time and for a couple of hours, the world seemed a brighter place. Let’s try and take some of that through with us in the coming weeks.
Remember we are all from Planet Earth and we should look out for each other. I suppose that’s what you would expect an aged hippy like me to say.
Have a great week and let me know if you spot a leader.
