Lovers Do Brexit

2016-06-27 06:20

As lovers, they squabbled over years. Britain complained about everything, she refused many things from Schengen to Euro currency. Very choosy. It's been a buffet. European bloc felt it's lover Britain was a spoilt brat. She forced her ways on everybody and brought her side kick, her mistress America into bed too frequently. You should have seen the ticks and stink America brought and left behind each time.

Europe sees herself having been a perfect woman. Having waited on Britain, loved her, stayed in shadows for her to shine. Britain loved the spot light very much, Europe offered it in multiples.

Britain has decided to leave. Although she wants to send divorce papers only when she is ready, she's effectively gone, left Europe with a broken heart. The nerve she's got. It's about her again. When she's ready she says she will act accordingly, for now she will delay article 50 (divorce papers).

But Britain is also conflicted and is going through internal remorse, like buyers remorse she's busy sending mixed signal but one thing is certain, she wants the divorce to be on her terms and timing. She's asking Europe to hang in there and wait again. But Europe now wants justice. She wants a clean break, she doesn't want to argue about who takes the dog. She wants to make Britain feel as bad as she is feeling and doesn't want to wait for time.

In the heat of the moment, the decision to divorce has destroyed Britain own wealth and emotional health. Things seems in tatters. But with every big decision comes turbulences. There's some chaos.

Her car windscreen has been smashed by her in a drunken stupor, she also smashed all her mirrors at home. It's a mess. It's a costly mess. It's repairable but the other part of the brain is still panicked. She sees the cost she contemplates changing her mind. She is shifting blame around. She's also hurting and confused. There's panic. A little assurance, more panic. Takes a pint.

So how do you make your ex feel bad about leaving you?

Europe is thinking what does she do, get a new, better-lover? Maybe the one who has been chasing after her for 20 years? Turkey. Everybody knows Turkey is a drunkard, prone to uncontrollable bouts of anger and doesn't like free opinions in relationships. Ah! Maybe not. Wait, but Russo can return as a side kick now that the British drag is gone, time to call a time out with Russo.

Maybe Britain must see Europe moving on and may come running back begging her and have the opportunity of rejecting her so she knows how it felt like.

Being dumped abruptly is sad. Europe feels rejected and dejected, hurt and embarrassed. It is time for self-love rather than bitterness? Europe is confused. She must call mother Russo and call the cat fight out. The sooner the better.

She decides an effective form of revenge is success and glory. At last she won't be getting involved in squabbles involving Britain's side kick, America.
