In a world of growing division today marks a day of sadness in Europe when the country has turned away from our neighbours ! I am so glad to be leaving England and coming to join a community of people who see only people and not boarders  Te veo pronto Jeff

Hi Jeff,, congratulations and sincere best wishes on your proposed new life in Spain.

Without taking sides, it is true ,for lots, today will indeed be a sad one, but to keep the balance right today signifies a very happy one for equally as many people who supported Brexit

A democratic process is coming to its conclusion..... irreverent what side of the argument we’re on, while I didn’t vote leave I’m very happy to see the process wasn’t thwarted and the democratic system destroyed by left wing folk who feel aggrieved at the outcome of a democratic process, for that I am thankful. The rest I’m sure will take care of itself.

It’s good you’re leaving the UK if you believe it to be the incorrect place for you to live and call home, there is no point letting something like Brexit fester and dominate your life to such an extent that it makes you unhappy and miserable. As for me, well I’ll continue to keep a foot in both camps, be as it is the UK will continue to be somewhere I’ve chosen to call ‘home’ and Spain is somewhere I can spend time in when I choose which is something I’ve done for over 20 years.

I wonder who voted the Brexit. Never heard about the Pied Piper of Hamelin? Who hurrayed Churchill, Stalin and Hitler instead of kicking them in their a*s in time? And all in the name of defending democracy. When will they (we) ever learn from the Bible's false prophets? If we all have FAITH (in common), what do we need religions for (whose aim is to separate us) ?

A slice of lemmings comes to mind ...

There was an interesting item on Espejo Público this morning concerning brexit.

The Spanish citizens in the UK thought of themselves as being treated as 'second class'

The 20.000 Spanish going over the border from La Linea every day didn't have a clue how it was going to affect the.

The dozen or so brits gathered in a bar in Alicante couldn't speak a word of Spanish between them so they interviewed two brit news reporters, who live in Spain to give their opinion. The words 'disgusted' and 'incensed' were used.

A point bearing in mind is that today ,The UK does not leave Europe, it leaves The EU.

Geographically the UK is stuck in the area called Europe.

However, the mindset of the average brexiteer is that the EU is Europe and they want to get back to their insular living, pull up the drawbridge, and go to sleep.

But, life isn't like that and you have to interact with the rest of your neighbours.

It seems a bit silly breaking away from neighbours in Europe just across the channel, and trying to get into bed with the US, thousands of miles away, who are only interested in the UK as a warmongering partner and a source of revenue from tariffs.

¡Viva España!.

Interesting to note that the Euro Weekly newspaper survey found that 86% of brits in Spain would be celebrating tonight - me amongst them!  The rest of you can go back to where you think it is wonderful......

To be honest, I think that most of Europe will be celebrating tonight.

Enough time has been wasted whilst a tinpot island race decided how and when it would leave. It's done tonight, and Europe can get on with its own agenda, including working out what is best for the UK citizens who have decided to live here.

Those who remain here can live their European lifestyle in peace and those who don't want to, can whinge about how unfair things are for them and go back home to the UK.

Me? I'm home.

¡Viva España!

Celebrating the fact that they have lost billions, yes billions, in UK payments!  Celebrating the fact that they have lost 60% of their fish stocks from UK waters!   Celebrating the fact that they cannot force the UK to accept thousands of illegal immigrants: can´t impose a 3 billion extra payment because ´we are doing so well´- forgotten all of that?

I could go on but the ignorant will not listen....

Drink up!
