At Primary School the following messages where drilled into me:

Second World War = Bad
Europe united = Good

I got older.
Europe got bigger.
The Berlin Wall came down.

The Euro was introduced. I travelled through three countries using one currency.

I learnt. I believe.
Less borders. More freedom = Good.

I don’t want a new Border.
Divisive in so many ways.

I believe in Democracy. I’ve always voted. It is no more a utopian solution than any other form of government.
