The Clash, Big Decisions and Girlfriend Trouble

We are now over a 1000 days on from this post and it seems as relevant as ever. In my original opening paragraph, I said that with only a day to go, many of us were still none the wiser as to which way to vote. That worked out well, didn’t it?

What's It All About?

Short post, but with only a day to go, there should be no-one in the UK who doesn’t understand the significance of today’s clip. If the EU was our girlfriend this is how it would be playing out right now but despite the 24/7 debate and news coverage from both sides (all very balanced so as not to show any bias of course) many of us are still none the wiser as to which way to vote.

Should I Stay Or Should I Go by The Clash:

Not entirely sure why Angela Merkel and Co. haven’t been getting involved in the debate but it seems that they don’t want to affect the outcome one way or another, so are leaving it to the people of the UK themselves.

So, no tearful last minute pleadings – “It’s not you, it’s me”, “I think we just need a break” and “You’re too good for me”…

Whenever I hear an old song on the radio, I am immediately transported back to those days - I know I'm not alone here and want to record those memories for myself and for the people in them. 50 years ago the song "Alfie" was written by my favourite songwriting team Bacharach and David - The opening line to that song was "What's it all about?" and I'm hoping that by writing this blog, I might find the answer to that question.

  1. “Not entirely sure why Angela Merkel and Co. haven’t been getting involved in the debate but it seems that they don’t want to affect the outcome one way or another, so are leaving it to the people of the UK themselves.”

    Trust me, Brexit is a huge topic and Europe, and very important for Merkel. She is doing what she can behind the scenes. She is certainly of the opinion that Brexit is bad, both for the UK and the EU. But to say so publicly, in a big way, is just what the Brexiteers need to rally up their supporters. “See, that’s the problem. We want to decide for ourselves. We don’t want politicians on the Continent telling us what to do.”

    Perhaps she should have said “As Chancellor of Germany, the most populous and richest country in the EU, and as the most powerful woman in the world, I feel strongly that Brexit is correct and the UK should leave the EU as quickly as possible.” That would be a real conundrum for the Brexiteers: agree with her, and they would be sucking up to an EU politician. Disagree, and they betray their own cause.

    1. Thanks for your thoughts from the continent. Don’t really want to get into it, as this is a music blog, and that post was written 3 years ago but yes, you could be right.
