Politics is all in a mess – some would have you believe. The newspapers, the media generally and all in sundry play this tune for all they are worth. Labour, the Tories and everybody else is all in a Tiswas about the EU. Never mind about the Health Service, Education etc etc But as far as I’m concerned this is just ‘politics’ with knobs on. Withdrawing from the EU was never going to be easy. Did we all think that the EU was going to see its founding principles go up the river without a paddle? No, I don’t think so.
It’s all a ‘mess’ and that’s that – well, some mess. The political heartland hasn’t changed at all. With Labour shouting the odds against the Tories (they can talk!) and vice versa. It is all predictable. The EU has said ‘No’ to everything, so politics as usual then.
Does anyone really care what’s going on? I do but then I’m a political moron so who is going to lose any sleep over this?
Ireland, the Customs Union etc is all very well, but I can’t see anyone having a scrap over it in the local pub. They might sling the odd punch or two over a darts match but the EU? In your dreams.
So that’s the EU out of the way.
What else is there that has hit the Media headlines? Yes, that’s it: Robotics and Artificial Intelligence. Algorithms is the answer to all human endeavour-it led to the financial crash so we never learn. Change is on its way (I’ve said this before!) and you had better look out! Life is controlled by a mathematical algorithm. What we say, what we do is all determined by a lump of metal sitting in a Company office. You can’t beat change can you? The problem is, what about empathy or the input of humanity? If you do without this, then the human brain becomes a thing of the past. Not likely – so I say, but I’ll be dead and gone by the time that society manages to work this one out. What about the people who are not well educated or who suffer from mental health problems? What will happen to them?
It’s all for you to decide and what a decision it will be! Better get your calculator out is all I can say – hang on, does anybody use a calculator these days?!
