The power of E(U)gress

Egress, to exit a confined space, to leave.

This is addressed to you, whom ever it reaches, with the power to cast a ballot to weigh in on a big chunky choice. You’re tired, and everything you see, has had a screen pulled over it.

We humans have a tendency to paint our immediate worlds with whatever comes to hand. It seems natural, cause and effect being tangible to us.

Problem is, this is used against us.

Every day the pressures of the world are framed in a false bias, your media and news are made by people who care more for sales than truth.

All the venom and bitterness created that was being aimed at the Conservative’s unjust (and increasing numbers say stolen) leadership, has been recast;

As a blame game on a ladder you won’t climb for snakes directly above us.

The breeding of frustrations in the working to middle classes, by Banking collapses, pension reforms and housing price explosions, have removed from us a sense of power to shape our destiny. We are angry, toxic, and immune to false hope.

Or at least I hope we are immune to false hope.

Because how we vote depends on how informed our ambition in the world is.

Neo-fascist and bigoted politicians would have you afraid for the meagre slice of life you have. Like it was as though it was NOT arranged to be such a thin and unstable slice. Teetering, fearing every threat and seeking security. Everything that was promised to you by example of youth is stripped bare for the name of austerity, a rather outdated and destructive policy, even on the staunch and stalwart British peoples.

Then,

Politicians spin their lies and weave the screen.  All of a sudden it’s not about why they haven’t brought enough food to the table. It’s about the poor kids next door eating into ‘our’ food. Generosity replaced with territorial fear mongering.

I ask you, when has life in our memory been so casually trodden on by the banking sector, by big business. When have the Conservatives been SO flagrant in ignoring the demands of the public. Petitions and demands over and over, thrown out for technicalities.

The biggest threat to Tory-misrule, as it happens, is the E.U. I remind you now that we helped shape the E.U as the strongest country in Europe to survive Fascist warfare from World War 2. We were called on to draft the European Convention on Human rights, enshrined in the Geneva convention. That same Bill of Rights has stopped an ever increasing incursion of Tory-meddling and spying on the normal folk of Britain. Extradition to other countries with less developed law has also been stopped by the E.U for good people who deserve Fair Trials.

We have done so well, so far. We have kept enough of the U.K from falling into poor decisions. We were right not to fall for the Euro, but to turn back from the only people who can intervene legally if our country falls to corruption beyond redemption? is a False solution.

To fix the world, we must begin at home,
Burning bridges is a sure way to drown when the floods come.
