Re: It will take a combination of a very rude awakening with nothing in the shops
I'm afraid you're totally wrong, if shit hits the fan big time (now it's in a gentle sprinkle mode) people will not blame themselves for casting their vote, nosir. They'll keep blaming the EU, who want to punish us,humiliate us, the frenchies, the krauts (but of course). And this natural human tendency to blame everybody else will be sustained by (no need to be subtle) politicians. Never mind long term prospects for the country, I'm being elected NOW!!!
