My expectation is that the catch 22* that the human rights things (marriage equality, abortion) in NI have put Arlene and co in means they'll probably try and dissolve Britain rather than back down and re-enter democracy in NI.

Meanwhile the UK is effectively watching 0.34% of Tories decide for the second time in succession without an election who will lead the country.

If they leave farage et al will lose about 60% of their seats in europe as part of the uk cooling off deal, obvs he'll manage to cling to a seat somehow but the uk are going from about 10% of EU parliament to about 4% of Eu parliament which they are going to fucking hate once the motor industry starts playing cards.

Hard border highly likely at this point, though if Arlene backs down (hint: she wont) the EU will prefer the sea as a border because well, it exists.

My prediction is a double dip recession in UK and IRL (this doesn't count my ongoing prediction of a green recession in ireland).

Scotland could do well out of this over the course of 3-4 years, Whales will be fucked over and the dublin oligarchy will diverge further from reality.

*taking the popular, wrong meaning of the phrase here.


Good morning everyone.

I mean the upper tiers of the companies that have moved from london to dublin, while the rest of the country is getting fucked they'll be cruising through it and probably soaking up property like a modern nama.

Edit: By the rest of the country I am including lots and lots of dublin.

While there is a big ignoring of the islamophobia rampant in the Tories.
I didn't see it, but it stands to reason. This is what's been so brutally effective here in the US.

We know that Tories are racists, let's not get too anxious about that. They're Torys. That's their deal. But, check this, allll political types are cunts, amiright?

In fact, the *government* are cunts.

The people that represent you, who you voted for, they're cunts, right? Right!

In fact, if it's not making money it's not a serious thing. It's a joke.

In fact unless you, you personally, unless you are gouging some poor cunt, you yourself are a pussy. Don't trust anyone that tries to help you, they want your eyeballs my child. Trust nobody, fuck everybody over, make money.


It's really clear here, it's not only in the proletariat, there's an expectation of shitness for everything related to the government. If you tell people something is shit often enough, they'll believe it's shit. Look at the NHS in the UK, look at the state of affairs in the US. Haha, the NHS is shit! Haha. Waiting... Ha.

England, and the UK, had some visionaries. They had plenty of horrific pricks, but there were some socialist visionaries that put amazing things in place. The UK is on the path to being a United States Lite. All of the bullshit with less money.

The thing is, the upper classes are clearly doing very well in the current system. They are maintaining the status quo excellently. They will be hurt by this change. It's radicalism when what they should want is conservatism. The upper classes are inciting people, but they're making a mistake. They're not even protecting their own interests at this point.

Normally I'd be all for breaking things, but this benefits almost nobody.
