Sunlit uplands lookin' kinda murky. Where'd all the unicorns go? #marr #SundayThoughts #RevokeArticle50
Seriously, if you are reading this and you're not terrified, there's something seriously wrong with you.
This is so far removed from

"Exact same benefits"
"No considerable downsides"
"Sunlit uplands"
Why are people not out and demanding this be stopped?
A wise person said it's our privilege showing. We simply don't believe this could happen to us
I think that's true. Even though I know there are a lot of people in deep poverty, collectively it's hard to imagine how a government can do this to it's own people. That happens to OTHER countries. You know, the FORRINS. Not a civilised country like OURS.
It's hard to imagine, isn't it? But the people behind this coup will be desperate to see this through. Because if they don't, if the emperor discovers he's actually stark bollocked naked, there could be serious consequences.
If these nefarious actors push through and deliver #Brexit, chances are they will never be held accountable. Because they'll just use whatever powers the Civil Contingencies Act grant them to just - well do whatever the hell they want
Peter Hitchens described it as a way to turn the UK into a dictatorship over night. In fact, I'm sure there was a quote on the wikipedia page for the CCA but couldn't find it again now 🤔
So make no mistake. We are heading for a new normal of tax havens, human rights violations, poverty, discrimination and death. Yes. Death.
Because there will be riots, the troubles could start back up again and we will have food and medicine shortages. And potentially lack of drinking water to affect ",100 000's of people".
Because Johnson, Gove and the others wrapped up in this corruption DO NOT CARE
And why should they? Why should they care what happens to us if WE don't. The collective we. The people who are burying their heads in the sand. Who go to work, come home, make dinner, watch TV and tut at the latest Boris shenanigans. The ones who think things will be "fine"
It is a form of privilege, arrogance. When it boils down to it. Our hard won rights aren't seen as hard won. They are seen as natural.

Automatic.

Permanent.

They're not.
We are running out of time and people are still asleep. I despair. Soon it will be too late.

Yes I know I've used this gif already
So what can we do? I don't know if it will work but this article in the times is a good thing. Use it. Reach out to people in real life. Get them to commit to doing something - anything!
Get them to:

- Read up on how it will affect them
- Sign the petitions
- Write to their MPs
- See their MPs face to face
- Attend any of the march events
- Start with some modest stockpiling
I don't know what else to suggest. I had hoped our representatives would have found a way to halt the corruption by now. But by and large they have let us down.
Stay strong. I have a feeling it will get a whole lot worse before it gets any better ❤
