About this EU Thing …

As I sit here in the late night hours, hoping to hear the final tally on Brexit, I see that my fellow-blogger Erik Hare is doing the same. I share here a few of his insights. Good night, friends, and good luck to my European readers.

Barataria - The work of Erik Hare

I’m sitting here watching the BBC site as the results of the Brexit referendum pour in. It’s not looking good for the EU right now, and that has to give us all pause. The EU is absolutely essential, in some form, but the bureaucratic mess that has resulted isn’t necessarily helping anyone. The UK never went all in, keeping the Pound, so their view has always been a bit askance.

For far too many, it comes down to an interesting revelation. Did Germany actually “win” after all? Signs point to yes, they did. But how? What does this mean to other industrialized nations? Is there something we should all learn? Is Britain right for possibly wanting to go it alone?

  1. This morning, I saw Trump in Scotland wearing his ‘Make America Hate (Great)’ hat. He said he thought the decision to leave the EU was a good thing. I was thankful for his speech because now I know it’s a bad thing.

    • I was, to say the least, surprised by the vote. I knew it would be close, but really thought the ‘stays’ would win. I wonder how much those who voted to leave really understood about the future ramifications of this decision. Many hugs to you, my friend. ❤
