Subject: RE: BS: Catalonia: pros and cons of separation
Ours was a referendum over a “division” that didn’t need a referendum to fix. There was no overwhelming appetite for the UK to leave the EU. Just 38% of the electorate turning out to vote leave after being bombarded with outright xenophobia and racism for months is testament to that. But the division has been stepped up several pegs since the vote, and in some ways that’s the least of our worries now.
