How quickly we have created an empty, uninformative, Referendum campaign for Europe.
Radio Four's Today programme had an interview with Michael Give and Nick Robertson ended the interview with the words, 'Well if you found that annoying, don't worry, we'll have someone else on tomorrow with a different point of you and you'll probably find that annoying too'.
Not what you'd normally expect to hear on Radio 4 but it shows the fatuousness of the campaign where even the political editors and journalists are getting little new fodder to talk about.
It is always about what might happen. No one knows that's why we can use fear so readily and enthusiastically. We're all scared already because that is what happens when you face the unknown so be honest that's all we ask rather than make the whole thing all the more uncertain and fear-filled.
Be honest and say: I don't know what it will be like but what I will work for after the ite take place is... because what is certain is that while everyone seems to be in this to win, it is what happens afterwards that will take the effort. Who stands out from the crowd and will choose to work for what they believe because whatever happens, either way there is a lot of work to do to either reform, or exit. Who among those we constantly hear from will do that?
Theologically, if it was the kingdom of God, then you don't win anything, you just have a constant vision to continually move towards. Making things just is the work of a lifetime and not a referendum.
