Rather depressing though it is, I think I need to flag this neat summing up of the current political status quo up. It does not make for cheerful viewing, but I think Owen Jones is spot on: this country is in it's worst state since the second world war. We were fooled into leaving Europe; xenophobia is rampant; the economy is screwed and the UK will soon break up. On that note, I just want to say that I now fully support Scottish independence - I've done a complete 180 on the subject. I used to oppose it because I thought staying united and solid was best, but what right have I to now demand the Scots, who voted Remain, stay united with a bunch of inward-looking, xenophobic morons? I now say goodbye Scotland, and good luck.
Thus the uk is in a pretty dire situation, and I am very, very worried about it. Like many people I'm furious about what happened last year. More to the point, I'm worried about the future: I'm worried about my rights; I'm worried about this country being turned into a free market free-for all; I'm worried about everything. If only there was some way to undo the damage.
