Why I voted to leave the EU


Since the result of the EU referendum was announced on Friday that just over half the UK wanted to leave the EU, the country has been in uproar. The pound fell 13% and the UK went from the 5th largest economy in the world to the 6th overnight. France has threatened to throw British border control out of Calise, leaving the UK open to thousands of migrants entering every year. And on Sunday morning, when I was expecting to get stuck into the ironing and mop the floors, I heard that nearly half the shadow cabinet had walked out on the Labour party. The only silver lining I heard was that Donald Trump will still trade with the UK regardless of our position in Europe. Yep, the silver lining is that if Donald Trump becomes President, the UK will not get shafted in trade agreements with the USA.

God, Abortions and meeting in the middle

A train of thought can lead you to exciting new places and new ideas which can make your world better. Last night I was watching “Forever” with my hubby-to-be, which resulted in us examining our family trees. For me, my heritage is very interesting and the knowledge of those who came before me has inspirited me many times over the years.
