There might well always be an England but there might not always be a United Kingdom - "Untied" Kingdom more like. Disintegration is now happening before our eyes whilst Scotland is trying to remain in the EU.
As there are no clear leaders emerging, given that Boris the buffoon and Lord of Misrule has gone to ground and Nigel Farrage aka Punch can go back to his puppet box for a while (whilst allowing overt racism to run riot on the streets), the ruling parties are disintegrating.
The Labour party has not represented its people for a long time; 1997 and Tony Blair - he was not and never has been a Labour person. He was a career politician, and, along with the Kinnocks, the Harmans, the Prestcotts and others, made their own lives very rich, titled and powerful and did absolutely nothing about a coherent and inclusive social policy, including housing and neighbourhood building. The Politocracy grew out of its own, huge, egos. Just who does Hillary Ben think that he is to decide on a leader, when he has done nothing other than live in the context of the Politocracy his whole life? He is not thinking about a leader for the people, he is thinking about a leader for his own ship - the one that is turned in on itself and functioning only for itself.
They left the masses to live in degenerate housing "sinks" of poverty, lack of education and in a crumbling infrastructure of medical services, school play grounds and more, when, in 1997 a clear housing and social policy was needed. Between the politicians and the press (they feed each other) the political elite is now populating the government which, as an entity in itself, serves nothing but itself; i.e.: the original cause (representation at ground level) has long, long gone.
The fundamental questions have not been asked since 1997 and yet, when Ed Milliband recently lost the election and leadership, it was seemingly still not apparent to the Labour party that he was and they are, so totally out of touch with the people he was supposed to represent. The disenfranchised have no relationship or point of reference with their "elected" MPs. They voted "out" as a protest against the Establishment which has ignored them and made them much, much poorer. Lack of housing, let alone good housing, is causing frictions at ground level and feeding nationalistic and racistic feelings.
Labour blame the Conservatives but it is the Labour party who are directly to blame for this current state of affairs. The last straw was that the Conservatives have taken away benefits from the weakest and poorest in society, whilst making the rich, richer. No wonder that the square mile of London wants to be declared as an independent state and stay in the EU - this one square mile is as far as the elite get.
Let us hope that Jeremy Corbyn gets support from the masses now, because his own "Labour" cabinet is still living in the delusion that they are worthy of office. In a land where the word-acronym "chav" is now included in the English dictionary, just what did we really expect to happen?
