Elites are elites are elites.
They don't care about the people they are supposed to serve.
I voted to remain to avoid the fuss. I made the decision selfishly as I was Ill and had so much going on in life.
Man have I changed my mind. I am dependent on benefits and the NHS. I have no future but state dependence or when the system fails family dependence but I want out of the traitorous European Union at ALL cost.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Britain manages to leave. That would be a proof that the EU is not a Prison of Nations like the USSR was, and Finland might be able to leave at some point also -- maybe even join UK's trading block.
The thing is that the EU can't work. There are something like 700 MEPs, most people can name 0-3 of them, and nobody knows the names of any foreign MEPs. The media doesn't report anything that the European Parliament, the commission or the president does, because the journalists don't know the languages spoken by these people. It is impossible for any single individual to keep up with what the EU is doing because, lacking a common language, you just can't go in and start chatting with the Slovakian or the Italian MEP.
Imagine the US was like the EU. The people in Florida wouldn't be able to understand the language of New Yorkers or Iowans. Without an interpreter Pelosi wouldn't be able to understand Trump, Rand Paul or AOC, who also wouldn't be able to understand each other. The governor of California, as the largest economy, would basically call all the shots in the US. The president would be unelected and largely ceremonial, and the media wouldn't report anything that was happening outside of each state. The government would write all the laws and the congress could not even propose new laws. How long would it take before the US would collapse?
Finland is in an especially tricky situation when Britain leaves. Almost all Finns technically speak three languages: Finnish, Swedish and English. These three languages are mandatory languages in school. Swedish is useless, lobbied by the Swedish-speaking-people's -party (RKP), which represents the remnants of the former Swedish speaking aristocracy, to prevent the Finnish speaking Finns from learning a more useful language instead, and out-competing the small (5%) Swedish speaking minority. So you wouldn't be wrong if you'd say that The Big Money is for forcing the 95% of the population to learn a useless language just to hold them down. It being useless, most people forget the language before they are thirty. Due to this, in practice, it is politically impossible to give up the mandatory teaching of Swedish.
English is the language of the world, so we can't give that up either, and neither can we give up Finnish, which is our native language. And it's not reasonable to expect people with also professional skills to learn, to pick up and learn a fourth language also.
When Britain leaves the EU, there isn't any medium-to-large country in the EU that speaks English, so most of the conversations in the EU will be held in languages that barely any Finn can speak. This means that any representative we elect to be our MEP has to rely on interpreters to talk with other MEPs. That simply can't work. So it is imperative we get out soon after Britain leaves -- which we of course don't.

Richard hall's coverage of Joe Cox is interesting and very though provoking. You may not agree with his theory but he covers the killing in details no other media outlet would touch. Why?
I do not believe the official story.
