Brexit - an Italian view.

Post by Fitter » Thu Mar 14, 2019 7:02 pm

Overheard in a shop recently: “My Italian friend says that, after this,(the parliamentary brexit shambles) he’ll never complain about Italian politicians again.”
With inky blots and rotten parchment bonds: That England, that was wont to conquer others, Hath made a shameful conquest of itself”.
Shakespeare’s Richard II.

But everyday life carries on as normal - nobody takes much notice, MIL was of Italian origin from Milan.

You don't hear that so much on the street here, they just want it 'done'.
And my bet is that even if there was another referendum there would still be a majority for Leave. People hate the EU even more now.

Then people are misinformed, misguided or simply ignorant.

I'd bet money on the opposite result. So if it happens, and we can get round the logistics, are you up for it.

I am fed up of Brits living in France complaining about how bad France is. So much so they have to buy their food from the UK and get it delivered. :roll:
