Let Me For Just a Moment Compare Alba to a Brexit Voter…

Let me just for a moment compare Alba to a Brexit Voter…
Now, I will be the first to admit Alba is not the best behaved dog in the world. It’s not the she doesn’t know the commands; she can do sit, lie-down, stay, come, shake, stand up and run around me in circles… But if there is a distraction, say a squirrel or a cat in the vicinity that she just can’t resist chasing, all of these hard learned commands go out of the window. πŸ€”πŸ˜’πŸ‘‰πŸ•
Today Alba saw a squirrel and yanked the lead out of my hand launching herself after this delectable little critter. She just can’t resist a good game of chase. Nonetheless, it appears all the fun is in the chase, when she gets within touching distance of the squirrel or cat in question she really doesn’t know what to do, typically backing away and barking. πŸ•πŸ’”πŸΏοΈπŸˆ
However, when Alba is lost in the fun of the chase, it is nigh on impossible to call her back. I can use my most stern and authoritative voice, instructing her to “come” to me and it makes not a shred of difference. Her mind is fixated on the squirrel. “Squizzel, Squizzel,look a squizzel, must chase squizzel…” In a similar style to Dastardly & Muttley, “Catch the pigeon! Catch the pigeon! Catch that pigeon now!”
It seems the only way for me to break this spell, is to incentivise Alba to return to me. Today I picked up a stick, which Alba adores, and said “Alba! Alba! Look Sticky Stick! Come and get the Sticky Stick!” And she immediately came bounding back to me. Instead of scolding her for having absconded, I praised her for returning to me and gave her the sticky stick. Taking hold of the lead, she was now back in safe and competent hands, everyone was happy in the knowledge that Alba wasn’t about to charge around the park terrorising the other dogs and their owners. 🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳
So just imagine for a second that Alba is a Brexit voter, chasing after the ever enticing Farage-Squirrel or Boris-Fat-Cat. We must forgive them the thrill of the chase, their endless optimism about the joys of finally coming within sniffing’s distance of the prize. Instead we must wave the EU like Alba’s sticky stick and draw them back to us once they have realised that the Squizzel will never live up to expectations. Take “the People” back into safe and competent hands and stop them from terrorising the other members of the public, including EU citizens, who are just trying to go about their day to day lives, doing their jobs, paying taxes, contributing to their communities and walking their dogs in the park… πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡ΊοΈπŸ‡¬πŸ‡§οΈπŸ‡ͺπŸ‡ΊοΈπŸ‡¬πŸ‡§οΈπŸ‡ͺπŸ‡ΊοΈπŸ‡¬πŸ‡§οΈπŸ‡ͺπŸ‡ΊοΈ
Just an interesting analogy for the day… 🀭🀭🀭
