I am just beginning to wonder if the North/South divide is actually happening. Talking to my daughter yesterday she mentioned that when she was working in Hebden Bridge, Jeremy Corbyn came for a meeting in the Town Hall a couple of days ago and attracted a large cheering crowd. So there we have the media and here I mean the BBC, who after all are our main source of news, saying nothing about this. Not fake news just manipulation by the London based media to play down what really happens. Does Theresa May attract large crowds, nope. The same happened in Leeds large crowds turned out for Corbyn to cheer him on.
The mantra one hears is that Theresa May will take us through a 'hard' brexit, she is the only person to see us through safely - don't believe. Like others I wonder at Corbyn's strong brand of socialism, the talk of nationalising some of our utilities, and to be honest I am almost in favour of such a strong political move.
Politics are being shaken up all over the world, not counting Trump who was the most idiotic of choices for a president of America, what comes out is that people want change, the French threw out 'Le Pen' not taking a step too far to the right. If more young people engaged with the politics of their countries we would perhaps get a different world, maybe not what we older people wanted but still the answer lies in our geriatic aging world of coming into closer contact with the younger, probably more selfish up and coming leaders like the French president Macron.
