Douglas Bastard's Rants of Rage

A final word

The referendum result was as I expected. The country has enough fascists in it to decide to prejudice future prosperity for a vision of a country that never existed. The course of the referendum was such that the Leave faction, both voters and politicians, revealed themselves to be wholly vile and either coded xenophobes or overt racists. With this in mind, I have decided that I need to claim another citizenship or live abroad.

It goes without saying that if governments of any EU countries, or creative agencies, decide that, wholly and utterly without reason, they really need a copywriter or journalist with a track record of mental illness, a history of irascibility and some basic creative skills, they should get in touch. Right now, I’d rather work as a street cleaner in Lund than be Prime Minister of this country, but maybe that’s just me.

Organising citizenship elsewhere and possible exile, in concert with earning a living, will be taking all my time over the next few months, with the result that I’m stepping away from Twitter indefinitely. I abhor this country and everything that it has become and probably ever was. Contact will be kept with existing followers over email and DM, but people who follow after this message is posted will not get any kind of acknowledgment.

Good luck everybody.

      Leaving here, hopefully. Too many xenophobes and racists.
