I can’t even

I rarely, if ever, talk about politics here. But today I don’t feel like I have a choice. I am shocked, 51% of my country voted to leave the EU and become isolated, insular and poor. The NHS won’t be getting extra money, as the Leave campaign claimed, because there isn’t extra money. Businesses will be affected, the pound has already dropped, people who actually know how all of this stuff works warned the nation, and we listened to idiots instead.

Goodbye maternity rights, goodbye NHS treatment, goodbye gay rights, goodbye workers rights, goodbye freedom of movement, goodbye Scotland, goodbye multicultural society.

Hello poverty, fear, unemployment, isolation, and racism.

I can’t today, I just can’t.
