Been a while since I have been here so hopefully this post is in the correct place...
I just had to put down my own feelings to the UK election and the result, now I will say I do not have a dog in this fight but I have many friends in
the UK and I have been there for extended periods..
All I can say is yet again the MSM got it totally wrong with their fingers well off the pulse of the average Joe.
The reality of the result whilst obviously not what the MSM wanted was a massive FU to the screaming far left that seemed to dominate the coverage
that I saw, so were where the "masses" of people that wanted to remain in the EU? covered in blue and yellow?, telling the general population they are
to stupid to understand what they had done and that they needed another vote is just what was done in the Trump, Hillary campaign. Call into question
the wants of the silent majority and this is the end result. (Again)...
Personally I was expecting a slight Conservative win with a hunch of a massive landslide but what was delivered was very very definitive that the UK
population want out of the EU. Thankfully the result was so great that I do not expect any outlet to be peddling the idea that it needs a do over.
Also I would ask will future MP's actually listen to the people they represent?. (Won't hold my breath)...
I was reading earlier that locations within the UK that would never have even thought of voting Tory previously had come out in droves and supported
them on mass, just let that sink in for a minute as to the current landscape that is in place.
Also reading headlines about students standing in freezing rain to cast their vote which previously one would have expected to be a liberal one?.
Obviously the communist brainwashing has not worked.
I would have liked to of seen the reaction of certain Eu power players as that result came in, and quite how they could ever report that a second
referendum was ever going to change anything is laughable although I do believe it could have been far different had Boris Johnston not have been PM.
But the message is clear, the liberal left have been rejected and that the UK must leave the EU.
If this is not a clear sign that the rhetoric of the left has totally missed the mark I do not what else will, and with the situation in the US at the
moment I fully expect Trump to get another term come election day.
I will be watching with great interest what deal the UK manages off the back of this result, I will also be very interested to see the trade deal that
the US has offered, personally I hope the NHS remains free (relative to personal contribution). That the UK realises it's worth to the wider world and
I feel that the rest of Europe needs the UK far more than they need it,.
At the end of the day I could only ever see the EU experiment being a one way door with the UK regarding immigration which is pivtal to the Brexit
vote, whilst certainly expats have emigrated they tended to be older and or retired bringing their bags of cash with them, there are not masses of
newly qualified folks fleeing to Latvia for example (Lovely country though).
So the question from all this is what now for the rest of Europe that it is clear that the folks in the UK want out?, and what now for the Scottish
Vote on independence?, I do not know much about their economy and if it could be self supporting but that is a question for another day..
