Well, polling day is over, votes have been cast and it seems that the 'leave' have overwhelmingly won the day. Now we have to live with that whether we like the way things are going or not. We are a democratic country - even if the majority of us have no idea about the real facts of leave/stay.
I for one am not listening to any news bulletins today - I just can't bear all the inquests and all the politial pontificating.
If you want to read a sensible, reasoned- out view of the whole procedure then go to the bad hip perspective on my blog roll. The writer lives in Sweden so has no real interest but she does write some sensible comments - do read them if you have time. (I have no religious views so that is not a factor in my recommending you read it,)
Luckily we live way out in the country, in beautiful scenery, where there is always plenty going on in the fields - so I intend to immerse myself in that and in the love of friends for the next few months until things settle down.
In the meantime spare a thought for the South East of the country where they seem to be suffering from a surfeit of rain. Derek(Letters from Sheppey) speaks of awful wet weather on the reserve where he volunteers - that will surely mean an awful lot of young birds perishing in the poor conditions.
Spare a thought also for the refugees from Boko Haram in Nigeria, many of whom are dying from starvation as they flee their villages.
What is the world coming to? It hardly bears thinking about.
