                           Is it safe to come out yet?

"Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown" is the mantra for our political leaders in the UK following the referendum result and the resignation of Cameron. Corbyn is also having a wee problem in the PLP. We remain part of the EU until somebody with a degree of responsibility invokes Article 50 and the haggling begins. Meanwhile, a few protests, an increase in reports of racism and social media exploding with rage has ensued. I have to admit, I walked around Lincoln and Grimsby following the result, I heard Polish, Russian and Romanian being spoken but no one batted an eyelid. Everyone got on with their respective business and apart from the bicycling shouty sweary man making a brief appearance which is normal for Grimsby, the day appeared to be no different from any other. The racists, fuckwits and other assorted idiots need to climb back into their box and the media need to research and back up reported incidents. The media also need to tone things down because they are throwing fuel on this fire. As for social media... please do not believe twatter and farcebook are a true reflection of what is happening in the UK today. I have already had one follower accuse leavers of destroying Europe and being imperialist racists. I voted leave for reasons of sovereignty, democracy and accountability but they held me personally to blame for everything going wrong. I guess we now need to get on with the job in hand but only once the politicians get their act together and provide leadership so as to invoke article 50 and the process can begin. C'est la vie! ( "It's like goldy and bronzy but made of iron").

Amen to that.
