Political chaos

I can hardly believe what is going on here in the UK.  Every day something else happens.  First the referendum, the vote to leave the EU, then the Prime Minister’s resignation which wasn’t a surprise, then most of the shadow Cabinet resigns and a vote of no confidence in the Labour party leader is passed but the leader refuses to budge.  And today the main leader of the exit campaign, Boris Johnson, decides to withdraw from the leadership contest to become the new Prime Minister.  Instead his fellow campaigner, Michael Gove, has decided to enter the fray.  If it wasn’t so serious and so tragic, it would read like a farce which is what it has become.  Goodness knows what will happen tomorrow. And tonight we remember the Battle of the Somme, one hundred years ago.  So many lives lost.  And our political elite are playing power games whilst ordinary people are deeply concerned about their jobs, their livelihoods and the future of the UK.  It makes me want to weep.

    We also watch what’s going on over there with dismay. We have a general election today and we know that whatever party wins , Australians will just keep bobbing along, watching the chaos over there from afar. – and being glad we live here !!

    I am glad you don’t have to put up with the nonsense that is going on here at Westminster. At least I can watch Wimbledon for some entertainment.

    Well actually it’s a bit crazy here now. Very, very close election with no results yet ( voting was on Saturday,) . It seems to just keep getting crazier over there. Everyone involved keeps resigning. It seems best to keep watching Wimbledon!

    I heard on the news about the delay in counting. I thought it was a bit curious as we always get the results during the night of the election. I thought it was maybe because Australia is a much bigger country.
