Brits become curious

Brits become curious

The British voted to leave the European Union and then started to google “What is the EU?”  They also started to inquire into getting Irish passports, since Ireland is in the EU.  The vote was dramatically divided between young and old in the electorate. Scotland is furious because they stayed in Great Britain recently because the Brits told them that by leaving Britain they would leave the EU.  Now they voted overwhelmingly to stay, and feel mighty baited and switched.  To add insult to injury Donald Trump flew to Scotland to “celebrate” the Brexit with his peeps.  Ever the party boy, he started tweeting his glee to the horror of Scottish people. He has run into controversy in that country with conservation groups.  Now he is indicating he is thrilled at the collapse of the currency because more people will visit his golf course.  He knows how to make a point.  Sometimes the only way to deal with current events is to laugh at them.

A very timely post and very illuminating. I wish that they could redo the referendum but it’s unlikely. The chaos caused by this vote (and clearly the lackluster knowledge on the meaning of the vote) is astonishing. If there was a way to change the outcome .. it just means accept what is done and stop thinking that it’s the end of the world but the loss of 2 trillion dollars …… is a bit tough to swallow.
