I don’t normally do overtly political stuff here, but these are desperate times. We have an unelected Prime Minister, a ‘Government’ stuffed full of unprincipled people, and now Parliament has been suspended.
Regardless of your views of Brexit, I hope you would agree with me that in a democracy Parliament is the body to thrash things out and find a proper way forward.
If you haven’t already, and if you’re a UK citizen (regardless of where you live), I hope you will feel able to sign this Parliamentary petition.
I have signed, I have written to my MP, and now I’m looking for a demonstration to join. I will not sit quietly by while a small group of privileged people sidelines democracy and Parliament, under the guise of ‘taking back control’.
I am as angry as I have ever been, and more fearful than I have ever been of where this is leading.
And now it’s down to us, the people, to do something about it. What irony, practically on the 200th anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre.
