These may be true, but I don't really see any of these as problems.
Until now I have been a very staunch Brexiteer, but the last few days have made me come to my senses and realise that Theresa May is totally incompetent and is not the right person to deal with such a massive change to our country.
I have therefore reached the conclusion that I think it would be best if we stay as a full member of the EU and save our country from this disaster. Leaving could be considered again at some time in the future when we have a new decent generation of compassionate and sensible politicians from our current youngsters, and the completely useless bunch we have now are locked away in care homes.
I apologise for all the Pro-Brexit rubbish I have posted over the last 2 years or so, and strongly encourage other Brexiteers who,like me were blinded by an irrational distrust of foreigners and daft patriotism driven dreams of freedom, to realise how stupid we would be to leave the EU and all the benefits it offers us.
