Hello there. Presumably Michelle you are from the UK, maybe? If so the Brexit campaign seems to have hit a snag with its counterintuitive logic, of which can only derive from xenophobic reasonings. How a country that prided as well as established itself on the world stage for its imperialism, has now on second thought opted to be uncooperative and more apart from the EU is dubiously shortsighted and maniacal.
‘Progressive’ to say the least is a relative term socially. Challenges to the status quo ante has invalidated what little remains of deluded racial or classist hierarchical visions. Coming to grips with this is proving uncomfortable and consequential to such intolerable propositioning.
This is a worthy discussion and I appreciate you engaging.
