The leave campaigners have had their way and Great Britain will leave the EU.
I am not a fan of the EU. Personally I don’t believe we should have joined in the first place.
In theory the EU is a great idea. The problem is, just like with communism, you have to factor in human nature.
The good bits of the EU have been smothered by the petty bureaucracy, stupid rules that interfere in individual national processes and traditions.
And let’s not forget the petty bureaucrats, the fat cats getting fatter on the EU expenses gravy train.
No, we should not have joined. However, we did and we have been in too long to extricate ourselves without a lot of pain.
Britains exit may well be likened to a particularly messy divorce. With both parties making life difficult for each other, more out of spite than moral rights.
And for those who think that voting to leave means that our EU contributions will be switched to the NHS, or that all immigration issues will be resolved, don’t hold your breath.
