Brexit means that if the majority, even if it is a slim one, votes for something - it will happen, right?

I say let's try that on some life-enhancing decisions like the 6 hour working day, or no more Zero-hour contracts, or in support of environmental conservation, or the move back to an adequate support for social services - or how about having to take responsibility for actions taken while in Public Office?

But I don't think the British public will be allowed to vote for anything more then who will represent them - for a very long time.
 
One thing is clear the curtains have been drawn - recent events have completely laid bare the recklessness and often incompetence of the ones trusted to be in charge. It is also clear to see that their decision making process is mainly fuelled by how to save their own skin and keep the power in their hands and not lead for the common good or even be vaguely honest. Future generations will watch "The Thick of It" and think it is a documentary.

What baffles me right now most is that on one hand there is this noble "parental" proclamation of " We need to adhere to the public's wish" and on the other hand the public has no say in the direction nor get any reassurances that certain institutions will be conserved.

Why? Because Theresa May needs to be able to have free rein to gamble. I see her in a casino feverish gambling away all our assets locked in a losing game but still believing she might - next round - she might win a bit back. You just know who will be the poorer at the end and it most probably won't even be the people who have voted to remain.

This is a story that needs to be continued. I really want to find out more about the farming industry and what the thoughts and fears of farmers are right now working in the UK.

Fourteen years into the project and it continues to go from strength to strength combining personal reflections, as well as the views and trends in society globally, of our life and times. Although the images are disjointed in subject and location, all are inexorably linked by the progression of time which we hope will take the viewer on a visual journey through the first day of the New Year hour-by-hour.

You can see all the other 23 entries here.

The exhibition has been featured in the BBC and in The Guardian.
