It was cold as I walked to my car. As I drove to work the pundits on the radio were still raking over the Presidential election. They were also raking over the Brexit referendum too.
It turns out that repealing all EU legislation would leave the UK with whole areas of law with no legislation whatsoever. No one realized that the UK handed over much of our law-making lock stock and barrel to Brussels and (apparently) there are whole swathes of law about which Parliament hasn't legislated for forty years. If we get shot of all the current laws will laws passed fifty years ago have any relevance to today's world? We might suddenly find ourselves with absolutely no laws about Internet usage for example...
It seems that there are enough MPs ready to vote against any kind of Brexit until a *properly* thought out Brexit strategy can be devised. (As opposed to the unworkable nonsense that Farage and Johnson were touting - and where are those millions of pounds that were promised to the NHS?)
I would have thought having a plan was a pretty sensible thing to do, but those who are holding out for common sense are being vilified for acting "against the will of the people".
I got to work and had a rather busy day. I came home to find a removal lorry outside our house. It looks like the neighbours we like are moving tomorrow. Such a shame; they were really good people. We’ve not had much luck with neighbours. We had a really nasty couple living on one side for years. They moved out and the local loony moved in. On the other side we have had (at least) twelve different sets of people (and two separate spells where the house was empty for months).
