Obelixx - funnily enough, I did take the trouble to research many of the areas of contention with regard to the EU. I took nothing for granted. I assumed that there were areas that warranted further research, I reread many of the documents that I had saved from my Salad Days when I was actively promoting the merits of the (then) European Economic Community. I contacted my MEPs. I read extensively. I appear to have been in a minority.
Whatever (as the young are wont to say)
I felt I had done all that I could to make an informed choice. I voted. I looked to the future. I shan't be here - my bed of daisies awaits. But for my son, for future generations, I made a decision honestly and from the heart.
I resent being treated as a half-wit, a pariah, a bigot. I did not (and never have) take my voting decision lightly. For the record, I have never, ever missed an election: I have a hard-won right to vote - an obligation to vote. And I always do.
