What sort of action did you have in mind Danny? Those of us here without the vote can do b****r all about it. There are those who support BREXIT and have every right to do so. As I see it, the issue of whether to leave the EU or not was never fully, rationally, ironed out and explained. So, jump on a band-wagon, tell porkies right left and centre and so many of the population end up totally confused that they resort to their instincts of not trusting experts (e.g. 5-a day is now 10-a day? Go to work on an egg? Drink a pinta a day?) that they go with what they want to believe. Sounds good - must be good. Again, as the Greeks put it so clearly, τη να κάνουμε?
I remember once seeing in a school text-book a picture of a youth, lounging against a wall, with a fag in his mouth and the speech bubble coming out of the side of his mouth read 'What's good enough for my Dad is good enough for me'. The caption under the picture was simply ''Ignorance'. There's a lot of it about still. Bob.
