At Primary School the following messages where drilled into me:
Second World War = Bad
Europe united = Good
I got older.
Europe got bigger.
The Berlin Wall came down.
David Bowie at the Berlin Wall (just because)
The Euro was introduced. I travelled through three countries using one currency.
I learnt. I believe.
Less borders. More freedom = Good.
I don’t want a new Border.
Divisive in so many ways.
I believe in Democracy. I’ve always voted. It is no more a utopian solution than any other form of government.
Meet the new boss.
Same as the old boss“.
