I still don't see what having more seats in the uk will do for the brexit negotiations

I mean, they're negotiations with the neighbours, who don't really care if we're having an argument in here.

It's like if the neighbour asks for their lawnmower back and you say all your kids like it being here. It doesn't seem especially relevant.



but I kind of think we're screwed with brexit, because I reckon now all the deciding power goes with the people we're telling go away.

we're irrelevant. why should they care if we leave? they'll just say bye bye and go chat among themselves.



politics is weird. everyone has a different reality overlay. and you find out which one was truest a generation later when the historians get through with the data, but you live with the fallout minute to minute.



... fallout is back to being an immediate sort of scary
... i like hiding under my blanket, but it seems insufficient to current difficulty

I reckon brexit is going to be like the Iraq war - in ten years time you won't be able to find anyone who will admit to having supported it.

I can explain this stuff if you want. Except I kind of took a vow not to talk politics on Dreamwidth because when I did that on LJ bad things happened. But I like you and I don't want you to not understand and therefore be sad, so if you want and think it will help, I can answer some questions about why things are happening the way they are happening.
