Maman Poulet | Clucking away crookedly through media, politics and life

Are you sure you’re sure you’re sure?

You may have noticed a lack of referendum blogging round these parts.  I admit I can’t be bothered.  I don’t even know if I’ll vote. That for me is terrible.  But both sides and the issue itself are not energising me anyway. Or they are making me terribly angry at the inaccessibility, scare tactics and futility of of it all.  Does it really matter how we vote and won’t we b back at the ballot box again after Greece/Spain/insert your country of cheoice goes belly up and more new rules or a new currency are needed.  A social europe, solidarity, justice and rights seems many many years ago and it’s every banker/entrepreneur for themselves.

And after yesterdays Last Word debate and Richard Bruton’s very very silly admittance and then retraction you have to wonder what the point is.

I’ll leave my last word for the moment to the very wonderful Annie West.
