I should probably point out in advance that if you are expecting more outraged political discourse, this post isn’t it. This post harks back to the time when all I used to write about was travel, life in general and photography. I digress…. This year we wanted to head to somewhere new on holiday. Money …

The big EU democracy lie.

Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it. Adolf Hitler Facts have been thin on the ground in the UK post the referendum result.

Bregret?

For another post about brexit, I actually wanted to start with yesterday’s events of the publishing of the very long overdue Chilcott inquiry.
