Frustration at those who are ignorant

Readers may have noticed that output on this blog has been, shall we say, minimal of late. This is probably due to my fatigue at repeating content that has been posted previously and a realization that repetition becomes boring to readers.

I mention the above as, in talking to someone this evening, the suggestion was made that should the current government make a ‘pigs ear’ of Brexit, it would be then necessary to begin all over again – which may well mean that Stage 1 and Stage 6 of FlexCit will make it necessary to combine the two in order to arrive at the decision for which the people voted in June last year – said combination which is sommat for which I have argued since its inception; indeed,  maintaining in the process, that Stage 6 should have been Stage 1.

The foregoing highlights a common problem in that: if those who think they know, but do not, will not listen to those who do know; and if those who think they do know will not listen, for their own stubborn (?) reasons, to those who have alternative suggestions – then this nation is ours is well and truly going to be ‘flushed down the pan’.

Edgar Watson Howe (May 3, 1853 – October 3, 1937), sometimes referred to as E. W. Howe, was an American novelist, newspaper and magazine editor in the late 19th and early 20th centuries; who, it is reputed, stated: A man will do more for his stubbornness than for his religion or his country.

Where this article is concerned, methinks I must now rest my case?
