Troubling losses

I’m sipping coffee as I write. The noise of traffic outside is flooding in and as I check my Facebook, I can’t help but feel saddened for the youth of Britain & the people championing for their best interests.

At a conference in Paris three days ago, UK delegates and reps from youth organisations felt so out of place, in a limbo as youth organisations gathered to exchange ideas to better the lives and futures of young people in Europe. They were devastated with the result. It meant loss of funding for some, loss of European partnerships but more importantly it clipped the wings of youth hoping to travel easily & work within the European community.

Forget for a moment the economy. What Brexit did was limit the opportunities for young people & made the world a little smaller.

It is a sad day when lies, xenophobia and misinformation triumph affecting the lives of those who wished to remain the most.

Report after report continues – hate crime is on the rise, validated by a disgusting leave campaign preying on the ignorant… what has become of modern society?
