So the hot dance of the moment is the European Hokey Cokey. In. Out. In. Out. Shake it all about. I might put my whole self in, except my right arm, which is out, because it has demonstrated right-wing behaviour when doing the birdie song dance.
Actually, I am all in. I can’t really say why in terms of specifics, because currently the specifics are being provided by two sides who are categorically stating totally opposing things as fact – meaning I believe neither. My reasons for staying in are because as a rule I think co-operation is a good thing and it has at least had the bonus of us not being at war with each other quite so often. Honestly I would opt for a United Earth Council like they have in Star Trek if I could. (I don’t want the uniforms though, I don’t have the figure for a tight jumpsuit, even with it’s slimming black sidepanels) The sooner we all agree to work towards what’s best for humanity and the planet, the better.
Equally I don’t think the EU is perfect either, so I am certainly up for a shake it all about. But be in it and shake it from the inside, like a revolutionary bean in a great continental maraca.
Also can we stop saying Brexit. It’s a bit too Bennifer and Brangelina for my liking. And Brexit sounds like a breakfast cereal rather than an important decision. ‘Two Brexit biscuits contain 75% of your daily recommended fibre intake’.
I have to say that I am already a bit bored of the EU referendum, though watching the Tories infighting makes a briefly diverting sideshow. While I have a preference for in, it doesn’t get me all fired up in the way say the NHS (good) or nuclear weapons (bad) do. It probably should, but I can’t help feeling a bit ‘meh’ about it at the moment. I wonder how many people will listen to the debate and how many, like me, will be mostly voting on gut instinct. What about you?
