I got bullied in school. A lot. Walking the corridors was a nightmare. I rarely made it between classes unscathed. It wasn’t actually the abuse which really stung, though, but the illogical mind-set of the bullies. You can’t reason with the illogical. You can’t make it see sense, no matter what angle you tackle it from. I remember vividly the intense frustration at that.

Decades of both the tabloids and dodgy politicians spewing hysteria, hate and flat-out lies to an audience who can’t be bothered to look out at the wider world, or at history, have come back to bite us.
Just as in school, I feel my fate is in the hands of illogical forces that can’t….couldn’t be reasoned with. An hysterical mob which voluntarily close off routes to all manner of exciting possibilities and progress because they read in some ratty publication that the EU was so invasive and bureaucratic that they even insisted bananas sold in supermarkets be of a specific curve. They believed the idiocy, they bought the lies and are setting fire to the bridges without a second thought.

The effects of the upcoming break from the Union are already being felt, and blame for those effects is already being laid, by the people who voted to leave, at the feet of the EU. They’re too stupid to understand that the EU is acting the way it has ALWAYS done: as a unit to protect itself. A unit that the UK just said it no longer wanted to be a part of.
If you voted “leave”, everything that happens from this point onwards is your own, stupid fault. The plummeting value of the currency, the inevitable recession, isolation on the global stage, the break-up of the United Kingdom and the possibility of war coming to our doorstep; You did this because you didn’t see reason, you didn’t see how being part of a larger community is a good thing. How cultural diversity strengthens a society. You couldn’t see that we were winning the war against the extremists and that they will see our departure from the EU as a victory. You’re blind to the dangers posed by an increasingly unstable Russia and demented US to an isolated Britain.
Once Article 50 is activated, that’s it, we’re alone. All because you were too lazy to look beyond your pint of beer and cheap newspaper.

Even if bridges and tunnel are burning or be cut with European Continent, we still friends and united. A political decision never break a friendship between artists or fans. Be strong together !

See, the problem with the world is that "Stupid and Illogical" are the rulers of the world and have the ear of the vast majority of the population, because of this, people will destroy their future, without a second thought, if they think it will get them somewhere in the here and now. It all falls back to the gullibility of the masses. The movie character known as Agent K said, "That a person is smart, people are panicky and stupid," this is incorrect, because, with a few choice words one can get a person to do anything to anyone, anywhere at anytime, history proves this.

Jollyjack -

Hello.  Just wanted to a) thank you for your consistently high quality, smexy, funny and compelling work over the years (Thanks!), b) to wonder if you have ever thought of starting your own videogame  . . . oeuvre? and 3! Where are you on Brexit?

Stay Awesome.

Jack (only occasionally jolly)
