Tragic Ironies

21 June 2016

Flag waving has been into unpalatable overdrive this last month. The Queen’s birthday, closed down a number of streets about our neighbourhood for street parties. The Eurovision song and football contests exist to remind us all of how unpopular we are in Europe. The Leave campaign would have us return the antipathy and direct most of their ire at the foreigners who like Britain so much they want to join us and work for us.

Meanwhile foreign oligarchs who want to buy what is left of Little Britain, are made welcome.

Nigel Farage and Michael Gove would put it differently and both of them are careful to avoid the accusation of racism by frequently asserting that the Leave campaign is not xenophobic.

But then came the UKIP Leave campaign poster intended to gather up every last racist vote that might be out there.

I warned Mrs Monk that promoting the Remain campaign with the Labour Remain poster in our front window would make us unpopular with the neighbours. With two sticks of sellotape and a gulp we made our futile gesture and at a time when the polls suggested a 55/45 Leave victory.

We looked around and found not one other remain poster in the whole town.

But then came the awful news of the Jo Cox murder.

What she was prepared to give and what Mair took, has been on everyone's mind ever since.
