“BUT BUT the ECONOMY!” Bollocks to trickle down economics ….

Ah yes the economy, the economy and the economy; which of course if you read much of the media is the ONLY thing that matters. Consequently the pro EU “remainers” have been running with “project fear” now for several months, before and after the Brexit referendum on June 23rd 2016. Of course the “spin” behind this is “if we leave the EU then we’re all DOOMED, economically DOOMED I tells ya”.

But look behind the purveyors of this spin, those people who want to keep us in the EU. You’ll find people with Hedge Funds in the EU, property portfolios across the European continent and basically people who make money out of being in the EU. The rest of us “plebs” who don’t have such luxuries (I myself am self employed and frankly it wouldn’t make a flying shit of difference to my business one way or the other, although very very slightly possibly in favour if we left, but that’s not for this discussion).  Virtually everybody I’ve met who wants us to stay in the EU is basically just selfish. The eBay seller who moaned her “stock” would go up because she buys from Germany, the guy with the Spanish wife, the guy who works in Gibraltar on some weird tax scam system and so on, it’s all been “me me me”. I myself voted out for a very simple reason, crudely put it goes like this:

“Government is mostly run by a bunch of mendacious career obsessed greedy politicians who neither listen nor care about the people they actually represent to the point of doing the exact opposite of the wishes of the their voters”. An EU parliament, for me, was another “layer” of useless, mendacious, greedy, freeloading politicians above them. I just figured 1 layer of governing arseholes was better than 2 layers. See my point?  Ok I had other reasons, but that reason seems particularly relevant.

Not so the remainers of course. No they have to try and browbeat us into “but but the ECONOMY“. Well here’s a thing for you people: some of us don’t care one way or the other. The socio-economic system we have is frankly shit for most of us. We’re told to “study hard, work hard” and we’ll succeed. BECAUSE trickle down economics works right? Does it hell, it doesn’t do anywhere near enough “trickling”, if anything it’s more a “trickly up” economic system. Maybe it’s time to smash this poxy system, because if we don’t it’s only a matter of a few years before the proverbial (and literal) pitchforks come out.

Anyone see “Witness For The Prosecution” over Christmas (damn good, go catch up on iPlayer). It’s a film noir style adaptation of an Agatha Christie play set in the 1920s. If you haven’t seen it then maybe you saw the original Upstairs Downstairs? Life in the 1920s was shit for most people. It wasn’t all “flappers” and cocktails and so on for the vast majority of people and we still had people tugging their forelocks to nobles and all the rest of it. Life was a struggle after the 1st World War and then when the 2nd World War came along this bullshit system was finally broken, at least to some extent

Sadly we’re going back to that, except the “titled” people aren’t those “nobles” they’re money men. People who make money from the EU, like “hahaha I sold 20 million Euros today for US dollars and made £500,000 profit I am going to spend it on hookers and cocaine” etc. Rich remainers are people who are worried that their “fund” is only going to make £15,000,000 this year instead of £17,000,000 whilst the likes of me (the so called JAMs) are struggling to get together a deposit for a new rental because I want to move because my rent is frankly extortionate. I did the “study hard, work hard” thing (seriously the letters after my name are probably twice as long as my name and those who know me know I use my FULL name, middle name and all.) I’ve studied my brains out and worked my proverbial bollocks off, like so many other people of course and frankly (even if they don’t know what “trickle down economics” means) think the system we have now simply sucks.

So bollocks to the chants “BUT BUT the ECONOMY!” Fuck you, you mean YOUR economy, your POCKETS, not mine. Maybe the system needs to be smashed and rebuilt. Don’t get me wrong I’m no socialist but heck there has to be something in between? Because the current system sure as hell blows. Trickle down economics my aching arse, just sod right off and bollocks to the “BUT BUT the ECONOMY” whiners.

Here’s what really happens, eg “shit down economics” (incidentally if you think my bad language is “unnecessary” then you can fuck off, it is necessary in order to emphasise the point):
