As a GDP I am really struggling to focus on what my vote should be. So I have set myself the task of reading across the campaigns this weekend.
It’s a busy week, and you too need to do your final reading. If only this was vCPD eh?
Well why not? It’s clear that this affects your dental practice, so go reading, message me privately and I will send you a simple feedback document, and a certificate for vCPD. Allow 2 hours.
What is they say about a divorce? You must have a reason to go and a reason to leave.
Do we? Have we?
Here are your links for the Remain and Leave campaigns [also knon as the “Innit” and “Exit” !] and other information sources or repute. If you read over these there will be lots of facts, and a degree of balance. I have tried to avoid opinion.
EXIT If at the end of this, you vote for the UK to exit, you will be lighting the fuse for the first cannon shot in a bloodless revolution.
No less, no more. The aftermath will be a change in the political landscape of the UK not seen for centuries. Make no mistake, in the past, civil conflinct started over less.
REMAIN If we vote to stay in, we will have the same group of leading politicians weakened by the arguments in the campaign, but a stronger case for lead influence in Brussels. Perhaps a vote to remain is a vote for change we do not expect?
But if the polls are to be believed there is a groubndswell of decided opinion forming. Watch out - the UK electorate has a habit of suprising the pollsters.
If we do indeed vote to exit the political treaty that is the EU two things have to happen.
Firstly, the present political leadership must go.
Secondly, therefore, by any logic, there must be a snap General Election.
And there begins 5 years hard work to re align our political and trading arrangement with the EU and the world, under new elected leadership.
And, guess what happens if we vote to remain? Exactly the same. UK politics will never be the same for this generation.
This is a big job and on Thursday when you vote, you are not voting for no change.
You are voting for how you want the change to occur and when.
Should we lead from outside the EU and try and lead from within?
Whatever you do, Vote
Whatever you do, respect your neighbour and his or her opinions.
That right to vote is something we have taken for granted these last hundred years.
It’s a new privilege and a new right in many of our Eastern European neighbours home states
And good luck, friends and colleagues.
This really is a momentous event, in which you are free to both witness and partake.
Go use your your freedoms, as wisely as you can, and we will met on the other side.
