Re: @fruitoftheloon: Really ....
Apologies for the rather vulgar turn of phrase, however this is important stuff.
Brexit, really was never a good solution to the problems the British establishment were having with the EU, and they knew that. It is the political equivalent of throwing your toys out of the pram and screaming 'I HATE YOU'. It really wont serve the common good, it will only serve those who have the will and means to exploit the resulting chaos, and that isn't me, and isn't you, and it isn't the people who need the most help in society here, or abroad.
Do you really believe that a fractured and infighting Europe with more hate in it is good for any one? I had some grandparents who seemed to think that was bad last time around.
So with peace in mind, I hold out an olive pint to you sir, and will drink to a better future, whatever your definition of that is.
