Am I the only one who feels utterly useless here?
For this comic, I figured I’d be using four or five flags, then I looked up a list of terrorist attacks so far in 2016 and my heart broke.
UPDATE 1 – 25th July 2016 – Added Germany.
UPDATE 2 – 28th July 2016 – Added Japan and Syria (which really ought to have been in there from the beginning).
UPDATE 3 – 5th August 2016 – Added India.
Well, we’ve been told “Brexit means Brexit” by the new Prime Minister in London, and we’ve been told there can be “no separate Scottish EU deal” by the new Chancellor in London. Two people Scotland didn’t vote for, insisting on decisions Scotland didn’t vote for. So really, there is only one choice they are forcing us to make, whether we want it or not.
Honestly, I’m finding myself finding more and more excuses to play this Pokemon Go game or read books, I feel so completely detached with what’s going on in the world now that the little happiness I can find has to be in fantasy 🙁
I waited all day to play, all day waiting for work to finish, then the moment I get out the house, their servers are down 🙁
Just remember to take a book.
I really wasn’t sure whether to include France in this or not, but ultimately decided that they haven’t outright said they won’t accept us, just said they’re not ready to negotiate with us while the situation remains as us being part of the UK. That, and I just kind of hope France will ultimately see us as a friend soon 🙂
I keep hearing nonsense from some persistent No/Leave voters saying Scotland needs to “respect the result of the 2014 referendum.” It’s annoying, it’s insulting. We DO respect the result of the 2014 referendum, we respect that a majority of Scots voted No. We lost by 55% and we respect that. But here’s the thing. The 2014 referendum was for independence from a country that no longer exists. As of last week, the United Kingdom that 55% of Scots chose to be part of, no longer exists. This isn’t a do over referendum we’re calling for, it’s a whole new one, one we’ve never voted in before.
UPDATE: 16 March 2017 – I’ve updated this one to use more colour than it did before and have added shadows. I’ve also added text to the final panel as there seemed to be a lot of confusion as to what this comic was trying to show when I first published it.
Anyone else wondering where the plan was for Brexit? Seems like after years of campaigning, UKIP or the Leave campaign would have at least had something written down on what comes next.
UPDATE: Yep, it’s been pointed out to me that I’ve managed to put 49% and 52%, which of course doesn’t add up. Stupid me, I was rounding and I got it wrong, it was 1AM when I was drawing this one XD I’m correcting it and will have a new version up in a couple of hours hopefully.
UPDATE 2: Done, corrected to say 48%. Whoops.
Two unscheduled comics in a week! That’s what happens when your world is ripped out from under you.
UPDATE: I’ve made this one available to buy as a print.
UPDATE: 22/03/17 – Tomorrow’s the one year birthday of Evil Dr. Eye’s first web comic, so I’ve updated this popular comic with some cleaned up lines and added shadows 🙂
