In the run up to the EU referendum, we heard some interesting facts, figures & assumptions from both the Remain & the Brexit groups.
Both were sure of their case & assured doubters that hell & damnation would follow, if one voted one way or the other.
Both were adamant that, in their opinion, their ideas were for the future of the country & that of the children & even the children’s children.
Well, we all know the outcome (no pun intended) and here we are.
It appears the ‘oldies’ voted out while the young’uns voted in.
Post referendum comments appear to say the oldies are satisfied while the young’uns are totally P’d off!
The country as a whole are saying now let’s get on with it, while even those citizens that emigrated to other countries are saying it was the best thing to happen since sliced bread.
Locally some are saying let’s approach the changes in a slow thoughtful way. Perhaps they should have done that before voting?
Of course, Jean-Claude baby has thrown his lollipop out the window. At first he said there would be no further negotiations, but now says let’s get these exit negotiations over with as quickly as possible. He says this is going to be a ‘messy divorce’?
And finally (is there ever going to be some finality?), there is this Article 50 thing.
I don’t remember anyone mentioning it during the run up, but maybe I was not listening properly? Did you?
Oh, one more thing. Some are calling for another Bank Holiday & that it should be named Independence Day.
After some 16 odd years of being here, I still haven’t quite got the hang of the British sense of humour.
