Someone suggested the other day that if we vote for #Brexit then the four horsemen of the apocalypse will be unleashed upon this country. Amongst many others I laughed because that is about how ridiculous the claims of Cameron and Osborne have become…
…then I sat and thought about it.
It has been claimed that the EU has been responsible for keeping peace in Europe since the war. It even received the Nobel Peace Prize FFS! It’s rubbish of course because the thing that will stop Putin and his irks attacking us is NATO and big fat bombs, not the EU. So that’s the first horseman – war – rolled out to frighten us.
Then we’re told by Oz-porn that the pound will plummet and that everything will be more expensive – especially the food we import. That’s also rubbish of course because we’ll be free to buy our food from outside the EU. Nevertheless, that’s two horsemen down. Famine.
And what about the NHS and medical research? Apparently without the EU we won’t be sharing medical research data and the invention of new medicines and medical advances will be effected. Also rubbish because the scientists and multinationals might have something to say about that. And the NHS will have fewer patients and health tourists if we start controlling our borders properly. Strike three for pestilence.
That only leaves death, the fourth horseman. You could argue that the first three will inevitably lead to the fourth.
So the four horsemen of the apocolypse really have been wheeled out by the Remainians.
Frankly the only death I would welcome is that of the EU. That way we’ll all be freer and better off…
