MS Harmony of the Seas – imagine….
Imagine this. After years of preparation, MV Harmony of the Seas is about to sail from Southampton on her maiden voyage with over 5,000 passengers and 2,000 crew on board. The Captain and his senior officers have enthusiastically participated in all of the pre-cruise publicity. The passengers have been promised huge weekly refunds on their fares, freedom of movement around the ship and ports of call without the harassment of reverse agreements allowing non-passengers on board, and free trade wherever they may venture in the world.
As the ship leaves the berth, the Captain announces that he and his officers must now go ashore and that the passengers must, without charts or any planned course, leave the safety of the harbour and sail forth into the open ocean.
“But we don’t know how to run this ship. Nor do we know in which direction we should go!”
“Tough!” says the Captain. “We’re off. You elected to come on board. It’s up to you what you do now. Don’t worry. Everything will be much better than it was before. Goodbye!”
Now imagine this. After years of campaigning by the political leaders of the Brexit campaign, the United Kingdom is about to leave the EU for uncharted waters…..
As they disembark, the Brexit leaders sing in harmony: “Don’t worry. Everything will be much better than it was before. Goodbye!”
