Brexit: A number of million causes to carry second referendum – Steve Cardownie



Regardless of the estimated numbers develop into, nobody can deny that final weekend’s demonstration in London was a formidable expression of individuals’s need to maneuver to a second referendum to settle the Brexit debacle.

Because the UK Parliament continues to tie itself in knots with ever-increasing tedium, a second vote would look like the one method to break the deadlock.

As enterprise continues to warn no-deal Brexit would have calamitous penalties, and with extra info coming to gentle on what affect on the economic system withdrawal from the EU would actually have, it’s certainly time to ask the folks what they suppose now.

Now that the implications of withdrawal have been laid naked and that the Brexiteers’ propaganda over the last referendum marketing campaign has been proven up for the cynical manipulation of misinformation that it was, it’s certainly solely correct that the UK public is requested the way it needs to proceed.

I used to be the 5,682,676th individual to signal the petition to revoke Article 50 and stay within the EU and I actually won’t be the final, which is one other indication of simply how strongly folks really feel about this concern.

Though at my age the affect of leaving the EU on my future wellbeing could also be considerably restricted, the detrimental affect on our youngsters and their youngsters’s future shall be extra keenly felt and it’s extra for them that I’ve signed the petition and can do all I can to see Article 50 revoked.

The state of affairs being performed out within the Home of Commons is yet one more unedifying instance of the mess that this Authorities has acquired us into. The folks ought to be requested in a referendum to get us out of it.

Making a quick Brexit

Voice in 1,000,000 has been silenced

I used to be sorry to listen to of the passing of Scott Walker final Friday on the age of 76.

As one of many Walker Brothers (though neither of them was known as Walker) he recorded a string of hits together with The Solar Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore and Make It Simple On Your self, amongst others.

After they arrived on these shores from America within the 1960s, they appeared on Prepared Regular Go and have become an immediate success. Coincidentally my two cousins from Little France, The McKinleys, additionally appeared on Prepared Regular Go and carried out with the Rolling Stones and the Hollies. The 1960s have been a vibrant time for the music trade and Scott Walker’s voice was making its mark on the airways.

For me No Regrets is unsurpassed, the lyrics and the melody endure until at the present time:

“There’s no regrets/No tears goodbye/I don’t need you again/We’d solely cry once more/Say goodbye once more”

Bittersweet and all too typically true. Scott Walker had a voice in 1,000,000.
