I hope I am not breaking the Referendum moratorium by copying something I have just read on Facebook.
Thanks to the source (if you are on GN you will recognise it!) Cheered me up no end smile

Dear UK, let's abandon the referendum it's breaking us, let's join hands, walk to Westminster, tell them we want a vote of no confidence, then have a big disco in Trafalgar square. Stop for a quick curry, hop over to Calais, grab the refugees tell them we are sorry it took us so long, welcome to Britain, thanks for bringing your skills, sorry you've had such a shitty time, we will help you integrate into the British way of life and give you pinky finger tea drinking lessons. Head home, pour a load of cash into the NHS on the way and give all the Dr's and nurses a quick cuddle and say thanks. Give all the disabled and sick people their benefits back with an extra £50 a week, tell them we are so bloody sorry we let a government in that gave them even more to worry about. Win the euro cup. Get back to work, pay a little more tax just to get us up and running. Then put a massive banner up saying "this is Britain and we are proud to be British

I agree. This divisive referendum was never needed and has already caused far too much damage.

Bellanonna Sun 19-Jun-16 13:48:55

Written straight from the heart. Makes me feel quite tearful.

This referendum has unleashed so much unpleasantness. If only we could wake up and think it was just a bad dream , but it's real and much harm has been done.

PRINTMISS Sun 19-Jun-16 17:05:36

It has done much harm, but was all that hatred there just under the surface all the time - so much seems to have 'bubbled up' over the past weeks/months, it is difficult to think that it is the referendum that has caused it - brought it to a head perhaps. Whether that is a good thing or not, I don't know, just pondering.

an interesting ponder PRINTMISS I wonder the same thing.
