Brexit payback

Despite all my worries, I woke up happy today.

It seems all of the UK has finally woken up and paid back the Tories for their freak show. 

We have paid them back for Brexit. It is justice that Nigel Farage spoilt their party and Reform got 14% of the votes. Conservatives let Fascists in, of course - isn't that how it always happens!

No one, of course, has a clue what to do with the UK. But the labour is likely to look for a new playback, because they are not tied to any dogma. Rachel Reeves can be trusted to take some kind of Green New Deal path, which I presume the only option to get out of the morass. I also look forward to David Lamy as Foreign Secretary to end the empire hangover finally. Yvette Cooper has a brain and known to have used it, so we may have a Home Secretary who has more to offer than some flights to Rwanda as the solution to all our problems. 

I am also happy that the two-track campaign of Rishi Sunak - appearing hurt when someone (one of the Fascists of Reform) called out his race while BJP-supported Indian community WhatsApp groups encouraging 'Hindus' to go out and vote for him - has come to nought. I would love to believe that we live in post-racial Britain and this is an illusion I would love to maintain.

Much lies ahead, but this could be the most important Social Democratic experiment anywhere in the world right now. I would love to believe that this would encourage many people around the world who can see beyond the edges of the neoliberal worldviews and fascist politics that accompany it.
