I'm still angry, I can't see this subsiding given what a monumentally stupid decision I think this is. I was up at 3am penning a letter to my MP. I realise that it's highly unlikely to change anything, going against the result of the referendum would be political suicide, but what else can one do? -------- Dear Mr. Boles, This is a letter that I really did not expect to have to write to you. I hoped that the people of this country and constituency would be sensible enough to listen to the majority of economists and see through the immigration bogeyman and the blatant lies extolled by a disingenuous leave campaign, statements that are already being backtracked on in less than a day since the UK decided on a Brexit. The move towards a far-right, xenophobic and inward looking Britain is not a vision of our future that I want or relish. The divides in the country are now greater than they were before the polls opened, with a chasm so wide it’s hard to see how such a rift could be healed. The way that the Remain campaign was handled was also shameful. Concentrating on their own fear mongering of armed conflict and emergency punishing budgets, instead of advocating the many positives the UK being part of the EU has. I fear for more civil unrest as the extreme fascist right now has a mandate for an anti-immigration agenda, we’re already starting to see this on social media channels (see notable Physicist Jim Al-Khalili’s twitter feed for example), and when the promises made by the Leave campaign can’t be met, the situation will further worsen. But it is still not too late. UK referendums are not legally binding, article 50 has not yet been invoked, it is still possible to avoid the looming economic disaster we are already starting to see forming. I would urge you to seek sense within parliament and use the majority of MPs and their view that an exit for the UK from the EU would be a bad thing and veto the move to become an insular country. The other outcome is too unthinkable to contemplate.
