I'm writing about Brexit again ... Christ!

"I woke up screamin' ..."

Ha! Yeah, I'm writing about Brexit again. [And I will try to make sense, though I ain't promising anything because I'm psychotically angry, just not in my right mind at all.] Probably for the last time. I'm absolutely sick of it, but ... just look at the mess we're in, man! I mean, seriously. Was this the fucking plan?!

Theresa May is putting the control of immigration before anything else. However, we need immigrants. Conservative and Labour governments haven't been letting them in for a laugh over the last fifty years or so. There's a reason why they were allowed to come. We need immigrants for the economy, for the NHS, for agriculture, for pensions, for all kinds of things.

We also need the EU. Is it any coincidence that Britain stopped being the so-called sick man of Europe after joining the EU? I don't think so. We don't have to love the EU, but it makes sense to stay as a member.

[Of course, Donald Trump is against the EU and NATO now. If they both collapse, I reckon Germany will be forced to rearm - including nuclear weapons. And the CIA won't like that one little bit. But I doubt Donald has thought this far ahead. Never mind, eh?]

And where is David Cameron?! This was all his bright idea. Where the hell is he?! / Actually, where the hell is Jeremy Corbyn? Doesn't he have anything to say? Oh, I forgot. There's some important business to attend to on his allotment. I think there's something wrong with the cucumbers. For crying out loud!

Brexit is a nightmare!

And it concerns me ... it concerns me, dear reader(s), that most of the people who voted for Brexit will die within the next ten years, while the children of Great Britain will be stuck with this nonsense and have to pay for it for the rest of their miserable lives. Is that fair? Does it sound remotely fair to you?

And, and, and ... what is Brexit doing to Great Britain's reputation around the world, man?! It looks like we hate foreigners. It looks like we're a bunch of fucking skinheads! It's embarrassing. And we want to do trade deals now? Really?

[Oh, I'm ranting! 'Calm down, Mikey!' Okay, Voice. It's a good job this is "satire", all this. 'Yeah. Whatever.']

...

Well, I tell you what I'm going to do, dear reader(s). I'm going to stop worrying about it. [Oh yes, yes, yes.] I'm only going to think about myself from now on. I'm going to play my guitar, and write my songs, and that's it. That's all I'm going to do, man. You dig?

2Pac had the right idea: "Fuck the world!"

Laters.
