How Our Incompetent Leaders Are Leading Us into a Disastrous Charge of the Brexit Brigade

Friday, February 9, 2018 13:46
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The infamous and tragic Charge of the Light Brigade is the story of an out-of-touch leadership so blinded by over-confidence that they willingly chose to charge headlong into a disastrous situation they knew they couldn’t win.

Sound familiar?

The tragic charge at the Battle of Balaclava was caused by misunderstandings, strategic incompetence, over-confidence on the part of an arrogant leadership, squabbling between the main decision-makers and a general over-estimation of the strength of the British position.

Exactly as Brexit is marked by tactical misunderstandings, strategic incompetence, over-confidence on the part of our arrogant leadership, squabbling between the main decision-makers and a general over-estimation of the strength of the British position.

The original orders for the Light Cavalry to put on a simple tactical show of strength, were deliberately and recklessly misinterpreted by incompetent leaders to lead their men into a suicidal and futile full-frontal attack.

Exactly as the Brexit referendum is being deliberately and recklessly misinterpreted by our incompetent leaders to lead us into a suicidal and futile full-frontal attack too.

The charge was breathtakingly disastrous for Britain – and of course particularly devastating in its outcome for the brave rank and file who were forced to take part in it – but not so devastating for the aristocratic leadership whose incompetence led to the disaster.

Just as Brexit will also be breathtakingly disastrous for Britain – and of course particularly devastating in its outcome for the brave rank and file who are forced to take part in it – but not so devastating for our wealthy (and even these days often aristocratic) leadership whose incompetence is leading to disaster.

Lord Cardigan – who led the charge – was one of the few to survive it, and after he left the field he went on board his luxury yacht in Balaclava harbour, where he ate a champagne dinner.

Just as I’m sure the wealthy people who are leading the Charge of the Brexit Brigade will also survive the disaster, and after the devastation will be able to board their own luxury yachts to eat champagne dinners too.

Leaving the rest of us in the rank and file to survive the horrific mess they’ve left behind.

The question is, are we going to doff our caps and allow our out-of-touch leaders to send us into disaster once again?
