Happy Friday 13th

Looks like the UK has screwed the pooch, but I’m sorry to say it was probably inevitable. As I’ve said before, Brexit made low-key Imperial bigotry a yes-or-no hot-button issue for all elections since, and this is the result. They want out. Let them out. We’re better off without them.

I have been making active efforts not to be reassured by the social media bubble I live in, which seemed very positive about strategic voting to oust the conservatives. It was never going to happen. The establishment doesn’t let elections happen that way and nobody cares what a lunatic Boris Johnson is.

I’ll just go back to feeling cautiously smug about Finland’s progress, keep an eye on Jonathan Pie’s blood pressure, and check in from time to time about the Scottish independence question. Although it’s starting to get to the point of “if they let this happen, they’re going to put up with anything.”

Kind of like the US and Trump, really.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy. https://hatboy.blog/2013/12/17/metalude-who-are-creepy-and-hatboy/

    Yup. As Marta said this morning, the UK is off the emigration list for us.

      To be honest I wouldn’t have recommended it anyway. But let’s see if Scotland finally decides enough is enough. They voted, as far as I have been able to tell, unanimously against the conservatives and it was a landslide for the Scottish National Party. The only question is whether they’re able to do anything about it.
