On the question of working abroad I feel desperately sorry that my grandchildren will not enjoy the ERASMUS benefits that my children did. As a consequence they worked in Berlin, Vienna, Bologna and Stockholm, with experiences that truly have helped the rest of their lives. All denied to my grandchildren by small-minded little islanders with no imagination or concern for anything outside these shores. Never thought I would ever be so ashamed to be British.
If you are so ashamed to be British why stay?
Because I don’t want to start a new life abroad at the age of 74. Perfectly reasonable.
Ah, that figures.At your age you know there is no better place to live.
Just to be clear Oldage, I may be annoyed at the leave vote, but I’m not ashamed of it. It was a clear democratic decision which I fully accept. What I’m ashamed of is the appalling handling of it by this pantomime prime minister, the ERG group, Farage and his cohorts, plus a right-wing press all suffering from truth decay.
