I'm at a bit of a loss to know which way to vote in the upcoming referendum on whether the UK should stay in the European Union or not. I have never had much interest in politics, which has never been a problem before as I have a fool proof method of deciding what I think about any political issue that requires no background knowledge whatsoever. If the tories are for it, I'm against it and if the tories are against it, I am for it. This is based on the fact that everything the tories do is designed to favour the bosses at the expense of the workers.
However, when it comes to the European Union the Conservative Party have no unified opinion on whether it is a good thing or a bad thing. Not only that, but it is obvious that both of the tory factions are convinced that their view is the one that favours the bosses at the expense of the workers (when tories claim something is good for the British economy what they actually mean is that it will make the bosses richer and more powerful and the workers poorer and more rigidly controlled by the bosses). So, which ever way I vote will be both the same as tories are voting and the opposite of how tories are voting. What is a dyed in the wool socialist to do in such a confusing situation?
I think I will more than likely vote to stay in the European Union for two, very good, reasons.
Firstly, the scary mad Conservatives are against staying in. If I found myself in agreement with both Boris Johnson and Michael Gove I don't think I could live with myself. The shame would be too much.
Secondly, Nicola Sturgeon and her national socialists, would love it if the UK, as a whole, decided to come out of Europe as that would give them the perfect excuse to demand another independence referendum in Scotland. In fact, I wouldn't be at all surprised if ardent Scottish nationalists vote to come out of Europe just to make such a scenario more likely. In my book, anything that thwarts Sturgeon's evil plans for world domination is a very good thing indeed.
