RE: What’s the official line on Brexit now it’s happened?

Dear Intertwit,

I’m confused by the rhetoric. I’ve reviewed lots of commentaries. I realised during the extensive research I’ve conducted that the only way I can get a considered view would be to ask – I think you may have the answer we’re all looking for. Or are you just as confused? We’ll see. I may not have been eligible for a vote in the referendum (due to age) but I have to live with the consequences. Make sure your answer makes sense and make it quick. I’m busy.

Thanks for your very current question Problem Child. You’re a precocious devil aren’t you now?

The EU In\Out referendum appeared to us to be a highly divisive subject at and no matter your view before we have to live with the will of the people right now.

For us, it’s a shame that there appeared to be a lot of high fallutin’ skulduggery, threats and half-truths (and non-truths) pedalled by both sides and the world of UK politics seems a lot grubbier all round now it’s all over. Politicians, as a result are held in such low esteem that they are now behind estate agents and curtain salesmen (sorry about that curtain salesmen but we had a rather large disagreement about a set of heavy drapes we had installed here at Intertwit Towers) and that is a sad state of affairs.

I will therefore leave it to the noted journalist, poet, novelist and cake maker Rudyard Kipling to sum up our feelings:

I could not dig; I dared not rob:

Therefore I lied to please the mob.

Now all my lies are proved untrue

And I must face the men I slew.

What tale shall serve me here among

Mine angry and defrauded young?


Let’s crack on everyone.


** We nabbed the poem from an article written by journalist Nick Cohen. We’re not that clever at to know all of Mr Kipling’s works past Viennese Whirls, French fancies and “I’m the King of the Swingers”.
