United Kingdom

Turning a page, 24 June 2016 #Brexit #Escape

half truth

Today I am turning a page on the long decades of my life in the United Kingdom. I don’t know how long this kingdom will remain united, and, frankly, I don’t care. I don’t care to live under the farcical régime of the Farages and other Johnsons, those jerks, and suffer the obscenities of the Murdoch’s empire, under the constant barrage of blames and lies, that was, really, only bearable because Europe was there, very close. It ain’t anymore.

Evidently the “markets” have their own, very well expressed views. A devaluation of 10% or more is on the card. For someone, like me, who plans now to spend the rest of his life away from these shores, and much further East, this is, of course, very bad news. As many others I depend on a sterling income, years of savings and hard work, all the way paying our due to the “Exchequer”. But this, on the scale of this debacle, is small stuff.

The important thing is now to escape, to seek cultural solace under a different sky, and different voices. It was planned, it is now urgent. So we’ll keep working on it, as we have done, in all justice, since the first clouds started showing up on the horizon… We’ll leave happily, this little wet parcel of earth to the future generations to rebuild, as they see fit. And we wish them good luck.
