Within 24 hours of voting to leave the European Union, millions in the U.K. had signed a petition asking the government for another, in hope of reversing the decision.
Good luck with that….
Younger UK’ers will suffer the most as they now have 27 less countries to find employment in due to this decision.
That along with a plunging economy, and pound, leave little hope for the future of this already depressed part of the world.
With less than 2% of the vote their world has unraveled, and their future uncertain.
This is what happens when you hold a referendum that is often promised by crafty politicians to get elected.
People vote with passion, anger and little knowledge or common sense, in judging the gravity of their situation.
Simply put, the average person is not qualified to make such a decision, which is why we elect leaders.
I blame this on politicians who have ignored the public’s pleas for change, and then throw the tough decisions on the back of the electorate, when leaders do not have the courage to do the right thing.

Can UK and EU kiss and make up after Brexit divorce?
What is the purpose of high school sports? To win, or teach life lessons?
St. Thomas More Catholic Secondary School senior boys’ soccer team was playing Bishop Tonnos when a dusk up ensues and both goalies are red carded which entails a one game suspension.
St. Thomas More wins and moves on in the championship.
However the referee makes a mistake and lists the substitute goalie as being suspended instead of the penalized first string goalie, as goalies do not require numbers.
This was not a questionable call on the pitch, this was a clerical mistake.
No one at St Thomas More said a word about the mistake and the suspended goalie was allowed to play in the next game he was supposed to be suspended from, while his substitute serves his penalty on the sidelines.
More wins that game and advances to the final, where they lose, to claim the silver.
That was the best the school has done, beamed coaches.
It does make one wonder if they had of been honest, if they may have won gold?
Before you make another Donald Trump joke about America, might be a good idea to look in the mirror, or at least your own back yard.
A woman wearing a hijab with a four month old baby was shopping in a London Ontario grocery store when she was attacked by another woman.
The alleged attacker spat on the woman, punched her repeatedly and tried to rip off her head scarf pulling her hair in the process.
The attacker than fled but not before an image was snapped of her waving a finder at the victim and a clinched fist.
The suspect is described by police as a 30 to 40 year old woman, standing approximately 5’5”, with a medium build, approximately 150lbs, long black hair pulled back in a ponytail, (white) with a heavy accent of unknown origin.
What has it come to when one stoops to this level of behaviour?
Embarrassment and disgust come to mind.
What really makes you shake your head is in the image, the attacking woman is wearing a red “Canada” t-shirt.
