Change in absentia

24 years ago, I moved from Yorkshire to Edinburgh for college. I had visions of myself returning in four years at the end of the course to meet with my friends, and be told that everything is shit now because the government have utterly destroyed all the public services and infrastructure, and I hadn’t realised because I had been away from home.


I now have visions of myself returning to the UK for some reason, meeting with my friends, and being told that everything is shit now because the government have utterly destroyed all the public services and infrastructure, and I didn’t notice because I have been living in a foreign country.


Except … I have noticed. I could see what was going to happen five years ago, and I didn’t want to get caught up in it – that’s why I’m living in a different country.
