Well, as we are all aware, Prime Minister May has triggered Article 50, which is a formal notice of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union.
I never thought I would ever see the United Kingdom leaving the EU in my lifetime. I voted for Brexit. I also heavily campaigned for Brexit on social media throughout the referendum campaign. I just wish that my father and my best friend were alive to witness this great day…United Kingdom Independence
I sincerely felt that the EU would show a professional approach to the UK's departure from the EU. Instead, all we see is a bunch of unelected officials, dictating to an elected Prime Minister on what they want, and not the wishes of the democratic will of British people.
With all the 'jaw-boning' coming out from the EU, why don't the UK simply walk away and seek global trade? The EU demands are on the verge of blackmail and no elected Prime Minister of the UK should cave into such demands. A two finger Churchill style salute in reverse is needed I feel.
The EU couldn't care a less about their citizens living in the UK and ours living in the EU. Prime Minister May tried to get this resolved soon after the result of the referendum was announced. They wouldn't discuss it until Article 50 was triggered, so people living overseas from their country are, quite understandably upset. Some of these people have lived here or within the EU for years. Sure, I understand that people should not be used as 'bargaining chips', but Prime Minister May is right not to confirm the rights of those living here in the UK until the rights of the British living in the EU are also assured. Equality on both sides should prevail.
I can't hear anyone shouting loud for the British living in the EU. All I keep hearing is those that have settled here in the UK should be guaranteed their rights. Sure, but what about the rights of the British living in the EU? Nobody seems to be shouting for them, and we all should be.
Having witnessed the EU in full swing following the triggering of Article 50, I sincerely feel that a British resident cannot be protected or be safe when travelling around the EU. All the EU seem to want is large sums of money at the detriment of the people, to protect their pay packets and pensions. Stuff the lot of them, that's what I say..!
My wife recently said to me on one quiet night; 'you seem badly effected by Brexit'. Yes, I must admit it, very badly affected. Forget the billions of pounds pouring in the EU from the UK over the years, the EU officials are bullying the UK and their people. The only person that seems to stand up for us, in public anyway, is Nigel Farage MEP. Not been a supporter of Farage and Co, but I am warming to him big time. Say it how it is. Be truthful. Good on Farage for standing up against the 'Mafia and gangsters'!
I have never been a great traveller, and I think my wife would say this is an understatement. The anxiety of travelling and the complete meltdown at airports is not worth it. My wife, on the other hand, copes well when travelling, especially if I am not around...! But I have made a decision recently that may or may not be a problem in my marriage but one that I feel I must take.
I have decided not to travel overseas anymore; especially to a EU country. Why would I put my safety at risk, or spend my money, inside the EU when the British is being bullied by the unelected EU officials over the Brexit result?
My passport is due to be renewed over the coming year and I have no wish to renew it. My wife likes travelling overseas, but I won't be joining her anymore. The world is turbulent as it is, and the EU bullying, dictatorship and stupid open door policies, is causing civil unrest….everyone is at risk. Stay home in the UK and enjoy it. Britain is full of beautiful countryside, towns and places. Seems to me to be more visual, beautiful now that Brexit is happening. The smell of Britain and our strong values are years ahead of the EU. Feel the future. Smell the future. Love the future. A Britain outside the UK will flourish and prosper, believe me. Just need to be believe in ourselves and not be talked down from those outside the UK.
