Today is the day that the United Kingdom leaves the European Union. Its a move that will impact all of Europe I predict. I am hoping all my friends from Britain will have the future they are seeking whatever that may look like. May this time of transition be one that does not disrupt the lives of people. It will be interesting to see how all of this plays out.
To my friends in the UK with Brexit uncertainty and a little fear I hope all the best for you. I hope your leaders will find their way to making things right, just and fair for every citizen there.
Theresa May began her political career in the middle of Margaret Thatcher’s premiership and has long been touted as the woman most likely to become Britain’s second female prime minister.

Later today Theresa May becomes the new Prime Minister of Great Britain. She follows in the steps of Sir Winston Churchill and Baroness Margaret Thatcher. From what I have read she will be a tough leader and will have to negotiate terms of the Brexit leave of the European Union. She is going to have her work cut out for her as she succeeds outgoing Prime Minister David Cameron who served for six years. .
My British/UK friends, what say you about your new Prime Minister?
I am not sure what to say after last night’s vote to leave the European Union. To my friends and fellow bloggers in the UK, stay the course on your own lives. Go out tonight and have some fun. Forget for a moment the politics that led to this vote. Hang in there. You have my support. It’s not the end of the world, although for some it feels like it this morning. Others are celebrating the results. Rule Britannia.
In honor of the results being tabulated in the Brexit/European Union referendum. “The Clash” say it best.
The people of the United Kingdom are going to the polls today to decide whether or not to stay in the European Union. It’s a decision that has local, national and global implications on every level. Citizenship in Europe clears hurdles for UK citizens to do a lot of things in other countries in the union which works for and against the country.There is also the economic considerations for both Britain and the rest of the continent.
Granted, I don’t have a vote in this but I think the UK is better together with Europe. Perhaps some adjustments could be made to give a little more independence on some issues important to the country. Overall, it needs to be what is best for the citizens of all involved.
