What a week it’s been since my last Wednesday catch up. I know I usually fill you in on how my week has been going and natter on about the fun things that are going on with me at the moment but I guess it’s unrealistic to have a constant sunny attitude, especially when it seems like the majority of the country is in a bit of a slump right now…myself included.
I’m not going to turn this post into a full on moan but I guess we all have to throw our hands up sometimes and admit we’re having a bit of a rubbish week.
I’ve spoken out on Twitter and Instagram about my feelings on the EU Referendum, I was very much in the remain camp and I’m deeply saddened by the outcome. I’m certainly no expert; economically will everything be okay? I don’t know. Maybe? Probably? Will I lose my job? It’s highly unlikely….So I guess it’s not all bad, right?!
No. Because above all that, what I can’t get my head around is what the affect the result appears to be having on our country. It seems we’re no longer a kind, tollerant nation. We’re turning into a nation where it seems it’s okay to mock someone for showing kindness, where people in the streets are being shouted at to ‘go back to their own country’, where anyone who dares to show some compassion or talk about human rights is labelled a ‘loony lefty’. When did that become okay?
I’m lucky that most of my friends and family have the same attitude as myself and that my constituency was a majority remain vote. To have so many likeminded people on your side of the fence really does help when there is a shit storm going on over the other side.
