What is the use of worrying if we are to stay or leave ‘Europe’? The damage has already been done. Long before we surrendered our sovereignty, decimal coinage was introduced, immediately causing prices to rise. If we ‘leave Europe’, can we bring back the orchards of Kent and the cod of the North Sea? How can we repair the rift between the generations caused by decimals, kilos, kilometers and what have you? If pounds, shillings and pence, pounds and ounces were brought back the younger generation would be as flummoxed as I am now. Half these awful changes took place before we joined the EU. Questions once asked when the Empire broke up are now once more relevant. Are we ready for self-rule? Can the British now rule themselves?
Is it too early for independence?
