Who’s in charge?
Nature abhors a vacuum.
There appears to be one in our country just now when it comes to leadership. A lame duck Prime Minister, invisible ministers busy plotting in back rooms and an opposition in the final death throes after a twenty year meltdown. Enter fascist windbags. Loudly proclaiming “how it’s going to be”. Yes, we’ll be repatriating them. “We’ll have to switch to private health insurance”. “Our new PM will be from the ‘Leave’ camp”.
Our media, when it is not mind-warping the ‘hardworking families’ of Daily Scum Land into ever more fervent racist adventurism – is blithely redefining politicians into ‘Remain’ and ‘Leave’ parties. Giving large amounts of air time to said fascist windbags legitimises them in the minds of the ‘hardworking families’; they become the de facto leaders and opinion formers.
The vacuum of values, beliefs and leadership will be filled somehow.
If we don’t want it to suck, we need to start finding leaders who can actually think and, er, lead.
