What have they done?

A fantastic holiday in France and Spain....we have met such lovely people along the way, fellow Europeans who treated us with such kindness (at our lack of language skills) and showed interest in our lives here in the UK......and now this decision by a little over half the vote feels like we have turned our backs on all those people and indeed sent a strong message that all the people who have come here are no longer welcome. But more that the divisive nature of this vote, its the young people who are the real losers in this. The last dagger blow from the baby boomer generation on their future. I feel incredibly sad and angry.


  1. Hi there!
    I echo everything you say ..... my two 'twenty something' children are devastated. They feel that their future has been snatched away from them. I won't even get started on the horrible racist overtones that are dominating the country now. I feel so ashamed to be English.

  2. Totally agree with Kathy.We came back from France today so we're there when the result came out.We felt so embarrassed.We love being part of Europe.I don't knowanyonewho voted to leave.Who did?FeelDevastated and let down by politicians.
