Re: Brexit: The Naked Truth

I think with respect you’re being equally swayed. What we have all learned after this is that there are many different “layers” of the EU, some officially in, some officially out. The below sums it up nicely on Vox.com. Actually, whether we are “officially” in or out is of less relevance than where...
