Sometimes, interviews with people sleeping rough, reveal that before they became homeless and found themselves living in the streets, they led normal lives with a home and a job, even a family. It often turns out that one wrong decision, one wrong turn they took, got them onto a downward spiral, which they are now unable to escape.
Looking at Britain, in its post-EU-referendum state of excitement, reminds me of these homeless. The current prime minister of Britain, in her “Brexit means Brexit” and in her attempt to claim the status of a “truly global Britain” for the country which she and her jubilant colleagues are pushing off the cliff, sounds like a drug addict who has just injected. This will not end well.
