Vote Remain!


I usually keep politics away from this website – though not always Facebook and Twitter! – but I thought this issue was too big to ignore. I shall be voting remain in tomorrow's EU Referendum. I hope you will too.

I'm not going to go into too much detail as to why, there are many people out there who can put it better than me. Read here and here and here.

As it pertains to immigration, which seems to be a major issue for some folks, let me tell you this:

My mum's mum was Irish. My dad is German.

My wife is Irish.

That makes immigration pretty good in my book. The main reason for me though, is that to leave would be a massively retrograde step. If I ruled the world, there would be no countries, just one big one. The EU is at least a step in the right direction. I remember when I was younger, I used to love John Lennon's song Imagine. Then, for about 20 years, I thought it was cheesy, naïve, trite and overplayed. Now I'm 33, I find that it's basically all my beliefs in three minutes and three seconds.

Imagine there's no heaven It's easy if you try No hell below us Above us only sky Imagine all the people Living for today... Aha-ah... Imagine there's no countries It isn't hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion too Imagine all the people Living life in peace... You may say I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one I hope someday you'll join us And the world will be as one Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can No need for greed or hunger A brotherhood of man Imagine all the people Sharing all the world...
