Brexit thoughts

I’ve been lucky enough to have seen a lot of continental Europe.  There will always be things I love and hate about foreign lands but I’ve decided to put up my “top 10’s”.  I suspect this is a very British perspective.  It is a sweeping generalisation but heck:-


  1. Rip-off taxis – that don’t use the meter (fixed price, yeah!)
  2. Shops putting change (coins) on the counter instead of in your hand
  3. Dog poo
  4. The abundance of people smoking in the most beautiful of settings
  5. Pushing and shoving (no queue etiquette)
  6. Relaxed attitude towards personal safety (think seatbelts etc)
  7. City Tax
  8. Dirty public toilets
  9. Smelly streets
  10. Bad (car) driving


  1. Food & drink (think fruit , sandwiches without butter or mayo as default)
  2. Weather (mostly!)
  3. Trains (and public transport prices)
  4. Cafe culture
  5. The way independent shops have flourished – variety is the spice of life!
  6. Libertarian attitudes
  7. Price of diesel (lower taxes?)
  8. Police powers
  9. Fashion
  10. Hospitals & healthcare

Question is, which list is more important?
