Hard Brexit #BriFri — 5 Comments

  1. I’m glad you posted that link, I will be reading more on Hard Brexit. I know folks who are Welsh and retired to France, this wasn’t a popular vote for them at all. Same with some of my English blogging friends. As a matter of fact, I haven’t been in contact with anyone who liked the result of this vote.

    By the way, you mentioned the phrase ticket-boo a few posts back….that phrase was used in the last Tana French book. Hadn’t heard it before your post and then there it was!

  2. Yes, I think the Brits do want both. They want continued trading, but none of the migrants. Hope it all works out so friends living in France don’t feel the pain too much.

  3. Don’t believe all you hear about ‘Brexit’ being mainly about controlling immigration – though total freedom of movement, however great an ideal, is actually unsustainable. ‘Brexit’ is also about sovereignty and the view that the EC simply isn’t working, will not change and, in fact, has mixed objectives. Anyway, given that 14th October 2016 is the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings, without which we probably wouldn’t be having this conversation – and certainly not in English – I thought you might appreciate a bit about that momentus event. I trust all is tickety-boo over there..!
