i know most of my post are pretty unserious.
but now i have a serious question, and allow me to go into the question smoothly.
immagine, we have 2015, again.
everything is OK. the economy is running good. standard politics, they talk about wether to put money in military, in climate change or into healthcare. they plan new rules to unlock economic, social and/or scientific resources to invest into the future of the country.
scottland has had its referendum, in which they clearly voted in favour for the union with the UK. nobody pushing any independence anymore.
Norther Ireland not even thinking of a united ireland.
things are going their usual way, nothing special, no extraordinary problems. and whatever problems occur they get debated and solved sooner or later.
gpb went back to good hights after it fell extremely in the crisis few years before, unemployment going down quickly.
all good, all fine.
and a few years later?
scottland is pushing hard for a second independence referendum.
northern ireland is contemplating with a united ireland.
gbp is plummeting
economoy. well, lets not say its bad, but it for sure doesnt look good.
every week the same play at parliament
mondays the UK parliament is talking about theresa may
tuesdays about boris johnson
wednesday about brexit
thursdays about northern ireland and scottish independence
fridays about deal or no deal brexit
satudays parliament uses the time to talk a word or two with the EU
sundays the parliament is sucking up americas arse for costume jewelery they might or might not gift them
pretty much everything is in chaos, the economy, the currency, the politics and now even the unity of the UK. nobody is working/shaping the future of the country, its all backwards rethoric. no issue gets solved, only new problems arise and nobody can agree to a solution to any of those.
the new prime minister is a journalist by profession, which imo is only 1 stage higher a ladder than a comedian (clown) which was elected a few months ago in a country in east europe which is fighting a civil war.
seems like a distant great past lovely remembered when the biggest issue was where to put a billion in, healthcare or military. etc. etc.
now to my question.
can somebody tell me what went wrong in the last few years?
i dont know, it seems, and thats my opinion, people were kind of bored of “secure, things going good, good economy, good future prospects, issues get solved” and starred at some big red button and though to themselves “hmm what could possibly happen if we push this big red button of which pretty much all scientists, economists, politians etc. say ““DO NOT PUSH THAT BUTTON???””… ah… screw it, im bored and got nothing better to do so lets push that button”
that red button is now pushed, but the effect that this red button is making did not even happen yet. it wil happen in october or some time later, but the true “bad effects” didnt even happen yet and everything is already now in chaos.
serious question, in your opinion: what lead to all this?
were people bored and hitted the bushes in order to try to catch the rabbit jumping out of it?
