Whilst we here at Wavelength have deliberately steered away from the whole Brexit debate, it doesn’t mean that in private we haven’t been following and indeed debating it and how it’ll have impact upon us – whichever way it ends up.
We are though like so many others confused by it all, and if we are honest at times a little bored. Everyday it would seem a new ingredient is added to the pot or something is taken away, all we would say without any form of obvious recipe card on view. Whilst we are not going to get into the for and against aspects of the whole thing – why is something so monumentally historic becoming so tedious?
Its true that the man and woman on the street don’t always hold the same enthusiasm for politics as quite rightly our politicians do but the whole debate seems to be littered with terminology and protocol that is confusing, divisive, technical and dry -in short people are fed up with hearing about it again and again.
To us its full of daft words, unnecessary phrasing and jargon – it’s almost a language of its own. In years gone by there used t be a saying that the conquer you need to first divide, it would seem the modern-day equivalent is to confuse to win.
We here at Wavelength obviously continue to watch the goings on and prepare for which ever side of the channel we land, but we firmly do believe that the whole debate needs a bit of straight talking and simplifying. Its how we work here on a day to day basis and we think most people appreciate that. Our clients and candidates do, as do all the businesses we work with daily – perhaps our politicians and news media could do with a day in our office.
