sooo today everyone woke up and received the news that our country has decided to leave the eu. as someone who has missed out on voting by just over six months due to my age, there was very little i could do about this decision. but after educating myself over the past couple of months, i was a firm supporter of the remain campaign. this was because i do not believe that leaving the eu will really solve any of the major issues that, as a country, we are facing. instead, opting to leave sends out the signal that we do not appreciate the hardworking immigrants who are dedicated to their jobs here and supported britain economically, culturally and socially. the entire leave campaign has been built on lies after lies, with nigel farage's £350,000,000 promise to the nhs which he has already declared false. the next decade was already destined to be filled with uncertainty and this does not promote any sense of security for any individual with a brain cell. it angers me especially that the generation which the result affects the most were not allowed to vote. many may argue that 16/17 year olds are not educated enough to make the decision but if they had been given the right to vote, they would have educated themselves and made the right decision. in fact, i saw the majority of common sense coming from young people on social media rather than from obnoxious politicians on television debates.
then, we get the news that david cameron is resigning. firstly, this seems to me a sign of a weakness that he cannot deal with the longterm effects of his decision to call to a referendum. secondly, i personally detest cameron but the alternatives seem much worse, like boris johnson for example. they are the most untouchable and snobbish group of people out there, with no idea what the public think or want. teresa may seems to be competent and less right-wing than the other individuals who have supported the Leave Campaign. as for nigel farage, he is nothing but an arrogant racist who is a danger to society.
at the end of the day, democracy has spoken and nothing can be done. however, it is a scary thought that donald trump could win the election in october and a right wing prime minister could join up with the most dangerous man in the world. if you voted leave, thank you for ensuring that the pound will plummet as well as increased petrol prices and damage to the nhs. thanks for ridiculous exchange rates and import tariffs, which will hinder both our economy and tourism. thanks for making our future even more unstable and difficult for the generation that were not even allowed a voice.
