Europe is over there… somewhere.

I’m an ardent believer in the idea that a good photograph ( whatever that is ) should be ‘about ‘  something and not just ‘of’ something, which is probably why I ‘m a big fan of political cartoons.   I don’t normally bother with scenes like the one above but it did seem vaguely allegorical of the current state our relationship with those chaps over the channel.. i.e. a mad dog, a wall and a distant horizon.

I have issues with this referendum / Tory Party Leadership contest the dear Mr Cameron has asked us all to take part in, surely we elect MPs to make these decisions on our behalf.  Ask the British public too much and we’d  have capital punishment back faster than you could pull the lever, Ant and Dec in No 10, and Katie Hopkins as Home Secretary.

People of my leaning  we fall between a rock and a hard place, I’m certainly no Little Englander but neither am I a fan of the Franco/German austerity dominated EU. The end result will probably have little effect on me either way but will on my children, hence having made sure they have a grasp of what’s entailed  I’ve asked them which way they would like me to vote.

So it’s a ‘stay’ from me and pray the EU stands it’s ground against the corporate invasion  of Europe.

The photograph was taken a couple of years ago in Hyde Park in anticipation this was going to happen.
