Just off to Birmingham city centre to collect a petition to stay in the EU

I have a big 8 foot by 5 foot EU flag which I hope to display and a petition on sheets of A4 which says to Mrs May “We’d like to remain in the EU , please.” So I hope to find some supporters for that sentiment and I might be off to London soon to take it to Downing Street.

The EU is a really good idea and we should be part of the team building a peaceful community throughout Europe for us all to enjoy.

I’m reading about the Brexit campaign.

I’m mulling over the state of play so far concerning Brexit. Not enough emphasis was put on the wholesomeness of Europe living together in peace after such a long history of war and tyranny. I want to draw out the wholesomeness and happiness of Europe thriving and living at peace. It takes some generations of hard work and attention to heal from tyranny. We should be part of the team, in my view. I’d like to challenge the main actors on this.

Looks like I’d better find out the issues underlying the Birmingham bin strike. Sounds as if it will last till the autumn!
