Thank you ☺️
Just to add, my heart sank when the referendum result came in all those distant years ago lol, I've only ever known being in the EU, or the EEC as it
was when I first understood anything about politics.
It is why I voted stay, on top of my concerns about the stuff I read from the Remain campaign.
I knew the moment I read the glossy (and skilfully worded) pamphlet from HM Govt that going tits up by leaving was not ruled out. I chose to stay
Then remembered the Welsh devolution referendum in '97, vote won by 50.3%, on a 50.22% turnout and it was passed.
I have no idea if that has been a good or bad thing for them but the majority won, and you don't get much closer than that in a vote over massive
constitutional change in Government.
Maybe future important referendums should require X amount votes % with X amount turnout to be passed, but this was not the case for Brexit, so Leave
I'm open to running with a new vote if it all goes tits up after 10 years perhaps, but now I run with the people who voted Leave.
It is the only fair and democratic way to go in my mind. Let's see how it goes, the more I read each day about our islands in the Atlantic and the our
relationship with the EU, then the more I wonder if we will look back back and say thank # we left when we did. Same as not joining the Euro €
