Brexit might be a moot point by tomorrow morning

I suspect all this recent sound and fury might soon be moot. Today, our eyes should be on our southern neighbour: if, as many predict, Marine Le Penn gets elected in France, then I think the European Union will be over as a project. It's days will be numbered, at least. La Penn will want to withdraw; with two of it's key members gone, it'll loose all structural integrity and just collapse. What would be the point of it? Why try to hold it together with people across europe reverting to nationalism? This noble project will fade and die.

Even more worryingly, if La Penn is elected, it will be another step down the path the western world began last year. Between brexit, Trump's election and the possible election of La Penn, it is now clear that we are heading in a very dark direction. Tolerance and respect for others are being supplanted by greed and arrogance; people are becoming more greedy, caring only about themselves. Nationalism - the infantile urge to keep societies and cultures separate - is on the rise. Things are becoming like they were in the thirties. We are heading somewhere very dark: brexit was one step down that road, the election of trump was another; tomorrow we might take yet another.

Comments

This is a quote from you:

"Brexit is utterly wrong for this country, and must be fought. More and more of us are waking up to the fact that it was a travesty of democracy built upon the lies of xenophobes"

This is another quote from you:

"I'm looking forward to asking her about David Icke".

You are a sanctimonious hypocrite defending your partner going to see an anti-Semite.

I object to both brexit and Icke. I know full well what a moron icke is, and I hope L will soon start to see him for what he is. There is no hypocrisy in opposing brexit while supporting L's right to go and watch who she wants.
