"I know that. I did watch, Yes, Minister!"
A couple of days ago, I actually recommended that one to a younger lad at work who voted out because of the 'Faceless Eurocrats'. (He was adamant that immigration played no part in his decision.)
Young working class men in working class jobs, like myself are ignorant of these facts and in a lot of cases, wilfully ignorant.
This guy actually did a little victory dance when the referendum result became indisputably clear, the previous morning.
I know I shouldn't have, but I shot him down by suggesting whom else would be celebrating like that and referencing Joe Cox.
He immediately came over with a look of mock contrition and muttered "Perhaps I voted wrong, then".
He then proceeded to pretend (unconvincingly) that he didn't know anything about the murder.
He was back to celebrating in no time, but more quietly from that point on.
When I later suggested to the same guy that the reason for the result and the high turnout was that people who had never voted before, came out in their droves; he put his hand up and said "Yeah, that was me. I replied "Figured as much", shook my head and walked away.
Anyway, I hope he watches those shows and finally gets some of the perspective he has obviously not allowed himself before.
I can hope, can't I?
