I’ve read all the bumf, listened to all the talk. I am by no means stupid as some of the Con’s wish to imply.
So I have a pretty good grasp of the Pro’s and Con’s.
And yet, and yet, my cynicism has reached such an edge, betrayed, lied to and stolen from by politicians, big business and the rest over the last 20 years.
That what it comes down to for me when deciding on these matters is ‘Cui Bono’ [“To whose benefit?”] and the answer always is ‘Thiers’ not ours.
iDave doesn’t want it, so that’s a good reason for voting ‘YES’ and yet Millibland and the Cleggon want it, so there’s your reason for voting ‘NO’.
They are just vested interests wrapped in smart suits, they no longer represent the people, but their own political class, they want you to vote for whichever they feel will keep them on the gravy train the longest or get them back into the First XV.
No matter anyway, as was proved in Eire, if the vote goes against the way the EU want, we’ll just be made to vote and vote again until they get the result they want.
And all the time the elephants in the room get bigger.
