Home alone

For the last ten days, I've been alone at home in my house. It has been a strange experience for me.
Let me explain firstly, why I am alone.
Mrs FE and her brother decided that they would go and visit his daughter in the British Virgin Islands,  including stopovers in New York. So off they went.
This has been a new experience for me.
I spent over forty years serving in the Royal Fleet Auxiliary as an Engineer Officer, and as you would imagine, I was surrounded  by people night and day. When I was on leave Mrs FE was with me in our home.  For the first few nights I seriously  panicked  that I hadn't secured the house at night.
But hurrah  I'm now used to living at home alone  now

We did it our way.

Why can't we do it again? We are being inundated with calls from remoaners that we will be doomed if we leave the EU. Why? For centuries our little island nation has punched above it's weight, through sheer dogged determination.  From my view, since we joined the EU we have been bogged down by pettifogging EU regulations that have prevented the innovation we were renowned  for.
I admit that it could take a considerable time until the new generation in the UK learns that greatness can be theirs. Unfortunately my generation I suspect, will not live to see the greatness I saw in my early life.
But:
Just go and do it.

Democracy.


It strikes me as odd:

We elect a government that promised us an in/out referendum on the EU.
The goverment puts a referendum bill to parliament which is passed by a majority of 6 to 1.
We then have a clear cut refendum with no ifs or buts. Leave or remain in the EU.
Leave wins by a clear majority.
8 supreme court judges tell us that the decision is not democratic.

Confused?
