In years to come I wonder if Britain will regret its decision to leave the EU and if future generations will shake their heads in despair?
I am not a political animal but with the uncertainty of Brexit looming over our heads like a black cloud in a blue sky, I fear for our future. Will this be the end of free movement across Europe for Brits abroad? How will it impact on our daily lives if there is ‘no deal’, and even if there is, life will not be as it was.
What have the government achieved since the referendum in June 2016? Nothing (as far as I can understand).
I’ve tried to follow various political debates regarding Brexit, but have failed miserably to make sense of the constant bickering between the politicians, each intent on scoring points. Bitching while Britain is burning. The rats responsible for creating this chaos saw the writing on the toilet wall and immediately jumped ship leaving the UK to be led by a government of headless chickens with no viable alternative in opposition. Each party working towards it own ends and each with its own hidden agenda. They argue constantly over Theresa May’s deal with Europe yet it is what she agreed and signed off. Am I wrong in that assumption and to ask the question: Surely the time to seek Parliament’s approval was before she signed off on the deal, not after or have I misunderstood? And Ireland. Did people who voted to leave fully understand the impact of hard borders etc. etc.
We have friends of various nationalities and they are equally bewildered by Brexit. I used to be proud to be English, now I am just embarrassed.
Knowing what we know now, and the fact we are wiser in hindsight, I wonder which way the vote would swing if we had another referendum?
