The Brexit referendum has shown that it is not only the psychopathic behaviour of a Hitler that can lead a nation to ruin.
Equally the ego-tripping and tom foolery of an otherwise intelligent person – a Boris Johnson – can unintentioanally trigger the prejudice and ill-will of the dark forces within a community.
Sadly, knowledge, wisdom and good will is not shared by all. As dark clouds envelop Europe and beyond there is a lesson here for our own local would-be leaders.
From your privileged position of trust you need to lead for the betterment of humanity. Do not take the easy road by responding to the lowest common denominator.
