Oh boy... Try not to let it bother you so much. Don't confuse capitalism with democracy.
A power grab and/or political gain may be true but... ultimately kind of irrelevant.
I would much rather the world moved on from Brexit and stopped trying to fight an outcome that cannot be overturned - if we are true advocates of democracy then democracy spoke in June and we should just accept it - end of.
Personally, above all I want stability, not uncertainty. As such, I would much rather have a government in place (whoever it is) to guide us through this process. Irrespective of the party in power, it was a smart move that was necessary to silence, once and for all, those who would otherwise make it impossible to move forward with a process that was voted by the people.
I think its pointless and a bad idea discussing politics in music forums - what unites us is the music, not our political preferences - we should strive to keep it that way.
For background I have dual Greek and UK citizenship and also work in finance.
peace and love. <3
