“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche
I am apolitical and enjoy living with chaos.
I similarly have no allegiance to any of the political parties that have been running for election over the past few months (but did vote).
I am an onlooker in a world that I, like many, perhaps do not understand the chaos within. With this, comes a level of naivety perhaps that what we have woken up to this morning is a good thing.
- Perhaps what we have in my idealist world is a parliament where individual MPs can now vote on the key issues that they believe in and not in what they are being whipped into believing.
- Perhaps what we have is the closest to a true represented democracy than we have had in years.
I get the bit about people needing to remove uncertainty, and I am sure that what we have is something completely uncertain to many.
But what we do have now is the ability to get the right people in the right jobs based on their skills, and interest rather than political persuasion. This chaos certainly is not the stability craved for by the institutions and investment companies.
- Perhaps what we do have now is the diversity of views being represented in the ways that we vote and it is time for our politicians to grasp on this and understand that this diversity and division, although complex, is actually a stepping stone for future greatness.
- Perhaps what we have now is the opportunity for a new leader to come forward out of the affray (from any party) and seize the diversity that we now find we have. A newly defined leader, a person with one objective, to recognise the needs of the people that they represent.
- Perhaps we are at a turning point in British politics where our existing procedures and centuries of legislation are being challenged and we need to open our eyes to see this.
… then the day job then interferes.
Power and personal objectives start interfering.
The vote to leave Europe needs to be enacted. The financial markets need to stabilise, but strange things are happening. Although the pound is down slightly, UK share prices are up as I write this – interesting.
We now have opportunity to get the best from leaving Europe – get the appropriate negotiators in and get quickly to a middle ground of understanding. We now have the opportunity to bolster where we need to bolster, focus activities on those areas that need it and invest in the things that are important to our great country so that in a generation, we have rid ourselves of this mess that we have been in.
Perhaps it is time to look forward, to grasp the opportunities and deliver something that could be referred to in the future as “The Great Change Agenda” where we celebrate and align to the greatness of what makes Great Britain.
“Let’s just say that if complete and utter chaos were lightning, then he’d be the sort to stand on a hilltop in a thunderstorm wearing wet copper armor and shouting ‘All Gods are bastards.”
