Shoreham Airshow 2007
Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

BREXIT

Date: 24th June 2016

Whichever way you voted, the vote was a democratic one and how often do we see a close run thing in General Elections, but the people adhere to the will of the majority.

Now I've heard it all - talk about changing the goal posts mid game - there is talk of another Referendum which will only be upheld on a bigger majority and with a bigger percentage turnout.  This kind of fuss is not kicked up when a lesser percentage turn out to vote in an Election.  This time people got off their backsides and voted - and I'm sure part of what they were voting for was the right to be heard by the Political Elite.

There's a great deal that I don't like about rules and regulations which seem downright daft, but I live in this country and I am bound to abide by the rules and regs. regardless - isn't that what a civilized society is all about - not changing the goal posts mid game and manipulating everything until you get the result you want.  Look at the Legal System where a judgement can be challenged again and again on Appeal - so where is Justice - at some stage we must be bound by the rule of law and the rule of the majority even if it is only a small one.

Pehaps if both sides had stopped 'slagging' off each other and concentrated on an adult approach and balanced reasoning, they might have had a different result.  Labour totally ignored their heartland and expected them blindly to follow like sheep - so did David Cameron with the traditional Conservative voter. 

Perhaps our politicians should step outside the 'bubble of Parliament' - mix with ordinary people and get a real feel for what concerns the majority.
