So yep it is Friday. I did wake up this morning, took Henry to Nursery then did a run, wondering about the EU result, whether the UK are in the EU or not. I did have a feeling it would be out, as I had a suspicion, as we had some person driving around in a, what look like a Jeep on a microphone convincing people to vote to stay in. Like a last minute persuasion knowing it was going to be the other way.
I got to say I did get a bit fed up of every time I went into town I had someone in a logo T-Shirt, EU Vote in or EU Vote out, handing me a leaflet. There was some guy arguing with one of them, and I was more wanting this all to be done with. There is only so much leaflet bombarding that one person can take. I know they are just doing their job, but I think it was a bit too much at times, as it seemed every time we turned a corner there they would be.
Now the results have been coming in, I don't really know what to think. I to be honest could not make up my mind, and I am not going to say if I voted or not, or which way I voted, I think when it comes to voting it is your choice and should be kept private if requested. I know there are many disappointed people with the vote, but there has to be a good reason why people have voted us out the EU. You don't get a majority on a vote without a reason. People want change, and whether it is good or bad, sometimes changes occur for a reason.
What is important to me is the poverty in this country. I know there are many countries who have people starving, being terminally ill and homeless, living in refugee camps, but we do have to focus our attention to the people struggling in the UK. I remember a report in the news of more families in the UK having to rely on food banks, and being someone who only had £4 and pennies left from my month wage I can understand why. I am lucky I do have husband who can support me. I have a good family and parents, who have helped us out, but there are those who aren't so lucky. They are the ones we should be looking after.
So what ever happens, I want the poverty rate in the UK to go down. It is tough to see people living on the streets, especially in winter, and families living in a bedsit, because they can't afford even a one bedroom flat or house.
Also Taxes. I do wonder a lot of, where does our money go?
Why are the NHS struggling?
I hope that whatever happens from today, that good things will come out of it. Whoever is becomes Prime Minister, of the country as I lost faith in all politicians a while ago that, the NHS do get help and support they need to not be struggling, and the poverty in the UK goes down, helping people to be more well off.
