Remain resolution on Brexit


The House of Glocal resolution on Brexit


The House of Glocal (actually, just one rather less eloquent author),

– having regard to the notorious unreliability of British opinion polling,
– having regard to the statement of David Beckham, that the UK should remain in the EU,
– having regard to James Bond’s t-shirt, which states that “no man is an island”,
– having regard to Donald Trump being wrong on pretty much everything anyway,
– having regard to the significant proportion of British voters who believe that the results of the Brexit referendum will be rigged,

Harald grew up in Großpösna, a village just outside the boundaries of Leipzig, but it is only after living elsewhere for four years that he really came to appreciate the city he was born. He is an idealist, a Christian, a socialist, a Europeanist, and, above all, a true Leipzig-lover. He will write about Leipzig’s history and politics, both of which are rather inaccessible to our English-speaking audience.
