Post EU depression

It has become increasingly obvious that the people didn't know what they were voting for on June 23rd. What has become glaringly obvious is how racist, intolerant and " intellectually challenged" the people are. The fact that one of the most Googled questions after the vote was" what is the EU?" should tell you that, this is the kind of question you ask BEFORE voting to leave the EU.

The people are not all to blame, the media and the actual politicians themselves would often just lie and present false claims as facts, and the people would believe this... yeah, because everything on tv was the gospel truth, give me a break! Many big news organisations had to slash their budget during the credit crunch and this means less fact checkers. so the News especially the mainstream media is more about speculation and opinions rather than presenting verified facts.

And more importantly it's about getting the viewership numbers to rise. And they've learned that what the people want to see is a lot of sensational claims made by a bunch of buffoons! The buffoons tapped into the public's distrust of " the other" and used in order to gain support to leave. The would plaster the News about how migrants are a burden on society and how they want to hurt you, this is  a lie but the people are more inclined to blame someone else for their problem than look in a mirror!

Nationalism was also at work, this idea that we have to take our country back, back from who?? People are under the false assumption that " Britishness" even exists. I'm going have to burst you're bubble... but it doesn't. Nothing in this country is made in the UK, everything from our water, trains airports are all foreign made, even the Royal Mail has been sold off to a German corporation. So if people want the foreigners out, guess what?? their wealth will also go and this country will be left poorer.

Immigration has been a hot topic issue and one could say that it swung the outcome of the referendum. I don't know if you're aware of this but many people don't actually think this country is that great, especially with the growing hate crime and general intolerance- it's not exactly welcoming!
The Government has said that they might introduce a point style immigration system like Australia, that's really welcoming isn't it! ( I'm being sarcastic) And why do we want to follow the Aussies, a country where they are shipping refugees to detention facilities on the island of Naru and are suffering " torture" like treatment.

The fact that many people who voted to leave would now vote remain tells you that this wasn't democracy in action, this was pure propaganda and the people voted under false pretenses and should be given the opportunity to vote again given what they now know to be the truth about how much the people benefit from being in the EU.

Azzurri 2016

I have said before that it is only a game and I still believe that, but what is remembered from the game can cause me great annoyance. The " sports commentators" can be rather aggravating, they show Italy no respect and they revert to the same old line of how Italians just like to defend.

It's as if after every tournament they have to listen to the same old cliches, have they forgotten about Euro 2012 where they played some beautiful ATTACKING FOOTBALL.

They had shown during the tournament that they could play both styles but yet everyone else will be saying the same old stuff about them. They had gone toe to toe with the current World Champion Germany and pushed them all the way to penalties.

Antonio Conte perhaps should've made some changes earlier in the game, but that's to do with coaching and not to diminish the fact that they were forced due to injuries and suspension to do without most of their creative players like, Claudio Marchisio, Riccardo Montilivo, Marco Verratti,Thiago Motta and De Rossi, but people will neglect those little details and just focus on the score- line.

There is no shame losing to Germany by penalties, I just feel sorry for some of the older player, this was probably their last chance. However I am extremely proud by the way they played with determination, team spirit and humility, they showed great class- which some other nations sorely lack!

I can't wait till next time FORZA AZZURRI.

The tragic murder of Jo Cox

This is the sad reality of a media that bombards us with things we should be afraid of and a failing education system and many people being discouraged from higher education due to the extortionate fees. People will take out there frustration and anger out in acts of violence.

What about these lot?

Where will they go?
