Brexit

I have tried to insulate myself from worrying too much on a day-to-day basis about the consequences of Brexit; but, now that we are into the New Year and have less than three months before we are compelled (and have volunteered) to leave the EU, I for the first time feel a deep sense of foreboding. Every option seems equally implausible: the Deal which is on the table nobody seems to support, not even the Cabinet itself; a second Referendum feels increasingly unlikely – too disruptive and merely re-opening existing wounds; so, we increasingly face the likelihood of leaving the EU with No Deal, with all the short-term consequences that will entail, including problems in food and medical supplies, leading to the possibility of civil disorder. No wonder the Prime Minister looks ever more anxious and unconfident. But maybe someone can tell me otherwise.

    I think you will search to find anyone who will tell you otherwise. My country voted overwhelmingly to remain and every effort our government has made to mitigate the damage has been frustrated at Westminster. We are, and always have been, a Europe-facing country which relies on migration. I too fear the future for my country and my family in Europe.

    John and I are two ancients who definitely voted to Remain and John has always said Brexit will not happen; he is often right.
