Brexit...politicians games and seeming positive move by european union for change.

Just arrived back to the netherlands after lovely few days away teaching in Southampton. These people know how to laugh, i enjoyed very much thank you

i just read all the newspapers i could find on Brexit. now for online thins. time to get i properly informed about the craziness. but i am suddenly reminded why i get the feeling to put my head in the sand when i read the slanted political spins politicians, newspapers and individuals put on this situation.... AND how irrevocably futile it is to be out for ones own gain when there are such high stakes. We are not talking about a prime minister that will move in 4 years if voters decide. its truuly a situation that is life changing and built on such fine margins. i relate that comment to the referendum, voting turnout and fine % win which is what these politicians are basing their brexit cause on. seriously? Now they are taking it out of the house of lords for doing their job and adding a checking mechanism to parliament and the government. So their not elected but they exist and have a legitimate capacity within uk law. Its like get rid of them or work with them, not dispute their credabiltiy when it suits you.

i read a couple of sideline articles talking about the ideas and shifts towards a new europe. this seems like the positive side of brexit. its getting people to question. i am totally pro europe and the uk being part of it for its own good. But i do question the dated nature of the setup, amont of red tape involved and the fact that as important as it is the european union needs to update.
