Be Careful What You Wish For

In the UK general election all the parties seem to more or less promote one of four positions. Remain, another referendum, the negotiated deal or a hard Brexit.

At the same time they have manifestos setting out their other “promises”

As we know that Brexit will be one reason, if not the primary one, that people vote for a particular party there is a real danger that people will vote for a party whose underling political and social objectives do not equate with their own.

Assuming a party does win a clear majority they will say their manifesto has the backing of the country even though for many who voted it may have been just a one issue vote.

I think this happens in all general elections to a certain extent but in this one with Brexit it seems much more extreme.

I’m not sure what the answer to this is or even if there is one but it does feel like the UK is in for one heck of a ride.

Be careful what you wish for.

Blessed Be.

  1. Great point of view and a lovely post. I quite agree, we all must be careful what we wish for. I truly think that leaving the EU is a mistake but I no longer live in Britain, so I do not count, but from my point of view as a European, I think it would fare better for everybody if the UK stayed part of EU. Enjoyed your post! And thank you!
