A long term anger is seething within me. My adopted country is committing collective suicide. The ruling party is telling us lies upon lies, including (as was repeated in the debate last night) that we voted overwhelmingly in favor of this travesty. (There were only a few percentage points difference.) Now they are trying to bribe their constituents with tax cuts, and enormous spending commitments. They say they will be able to pay for it through increased revenue because of the tax cuts creating economic growth. Regardless of how we leave the EU, we will have a recession. A no-deal separation will be worse. They won’t be able to pay for any of their promises. In fact, they will have to raise taxes and cut spending, just opposite of what they are promising. How can people NOT see this? And the opposition is sitting on the fence. It’s time to get off that fence.
Sorry. I just needed to vent.

XVII. The Star
Hope, clarity of vision, unexpected help, spiritual vision, realization of vision. On the flip side, it can also mean error of judgement, dreaminess, disappointment.
I can’t handle this card today. Is it for me? For the country? Is it my mistake to even bring this up?
