Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
EU is asking the wrong questions. if they are competent, then they should have realised by now that May is not a fit and proper person to negotiate on behalf of the UK, and likewise the members of party she belongs to are putting self-interest before that of their country.
EU shoud be making far more of an effort to find out what the people of the UK want. If it is not pratical to consult with the entire UK population indiviually, then to at least talk to each elected representative.
For the last two and a half years the outcome of the referendum has badly affected my personal well-being, particularly that neither party (EU or UK) have made a legally binding guarantee that there will be no impact on the ability of my long-term partner from Prague and myself to continue to enjoy our long-distance relatkonship, and make a decision in the future to live together without having to satisfy racist conditions. I resent us being discriminated against in favour of those who have been able to reside previously and not be entitled to the same opportunities. I resent that people who have benefited from the right to study, work, retire in other EU states are selfishly denying others the same right on the future. I resent those that have benefited from funding from cohesion and structural funds to improve their lives are denying the same for people who are individually disadvanteged, or live in socially and economically deprived communities. All this is just the tip of the iceberg.
