Brexit Party, No. I’m a European, I live and work and love in Europe.
I remain politically aloof, although…my opinions are clear and published on matters concerning UK citizens today. Aristotelian politics, the arts, history, philosophy, music, poetry, culture, conspiracy, these are some themes I have dedicated my life long study to. And I can tell you that the Brexit Party, and the ERG, and UKIP, and anything connected with Steve Bannon is rotten to the core, distracting, demented and low down bullshit mixed with batshit. Test me.
Contrary to the stereotype, I’m not a Labour supporter or a Corbynite, although he and Labour are the obvious voting choice to getting rid of the Tories, and so to restore some semblance of logic, humanity and hope for the UK. Many will disagree here, the Greens, Lib Dems among them. My advice, vote labour, or strategically to oust the haters and the greedheads. Voting consciously, humanly might be your best bet to secure a future.
If you are voting Brexit Party please leave me, both here on FB, and in mind. If you are thinking of voting Brexit Party, but not sure, inbox me, we can talk this through. If you’re a football hooligan, stone island wearing Tommy Robinson supporter, a pox on you. I’m not afraid of you or your gang of ex-army steroid pumped goons.
To the smart educated right-wing intel agents reading this, I’ll be coming for you in your sleep. To have bent out of shape the noble efforts of thinkers, scientists, artists and citizens to fit your warped paranoid perception of life, world culture and progress, is to me, the ugliest crime you have committed in our name. In my name. The will of the British people? Well, I’m British and you do NOT speak for me. Heathcote Williams speaks for me. My music and writing and art speak for me.
Furthermore, I’m not saying I don’t want to talk about this, or even change or modify my mind, IF….somebody can present an argument (For Brexit Party, and/Or Brexit) that is coherent and based on solid information, not some dodgy Fortress Europe paranoid fantasy, or baseless racist ideology dressed up as a political strategy. (e.g, Theresa May’s hostile environment, and Farage’s Breaking Point campaign.) As I said, I like to write and to tackle difficult questions, and strive to build bridges by encouraging brighter minds. The capacity to think, consider, suspend judgement, and kindle compassion. These are the tools to defeat fascism.
Goodbye to those few Brexiting friends here, who might have to leave after reading this. (and those few Brexit pimps who no longer have accounts here). Hello to my friends who have an international agenda to communicate with love, life force, laughter and art. We’re in this together. Don’t go to the hate side.
