I’m so tired of our politicians, our political parties and our political system. They are just hagfish writhing around the carcass of a dead whale somewhere in the deep abyss when all the meat is gone and only bones remain. They’re trying to govern a world that no longer exists and they don’t have the wit, knowledge or ideas to move themselves from the post-war era to the age of climate collapse.
I have no idea how we get out of this, but I am increasingly clear that it won’t be through our politicians or our media. We’re going to have to do all of it ourselves and it’s going to be a mess. Perhaps this will be the power of Brexit, to finally bring the British people to the barricades and drag us kicking, screaming and waving revolutionary banners into the 19th century.
