What The Radio Is Telling Me

Tomorrow is D-Day but the D this time strands for decision day and all the polls show it is too close to call and even the psychic lady down the hall is not giving me an answer and she is usually very keen on passing on whatever her tea leaves are telling her.     
So if the pollsters don't know and the tea leaves are keeping it to themselves then i can only go on what the radio is telling me, and it isn't looking good for those of us with a foot in the Remain camp.
First up going to work was 'Love On The Rocks' by Neil Diamond with killer line: 'Suddenly you find you're out there walking in a storm'.
In the rest room the song playing as i walked in was from a colleagues 'Best of Anastasia' CD and 'Left Outside Alone' with another line that was like a dagger in my heart: 'I wonder if you know how it really feels to be left outside alone'.
To be fair once i explained about things they tried to cheer me up with a song from the Sex Pistols CD but i don't think 'Anarchy In The UK' was a good choice. 
I resisted turning on the radio on the way home but as i stepped in the door Bruce Springsteen's 'Born To Run' was on one of the music channels and the withering lyric: 'We gotta get out while we're young `cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run' so i feel like things are stacked against us staying in the European Union.
Today's music is telling me that tomorrow could be another turning point, a fork stuck in the road where time has grabbed us by the wrist and directed us where to go. We need to make the best of this test, not asking why because it's not a question, but a lesson we will learn in time, something unpredictable, but in the end is right, in the EU we have had the time of our life.

In the US the polls don't do a good job of filtering who will vote and who won't. The polls often show a desire for change, but the people that favor it are usually to apetheic to take action.

It has been said here a low turn out will favour Leave and as we have a weather forecast of heavy rain & electric storms over most of the country tomorrow the weather may be a deciding factor.
