In the days before our historic referendum vote, David Cameron went to the European Union with some 'requests' to allow Britain to stay more comfortably in the European Union. I think at the time that nobody thought we would ever vote to leave and that the referendum was a way of getting what we wanted.
One of the things David Cameron requested was for Britain to delay the giving out of benefits to immigrants for the first five years. This suggestion was dismissed out of hand and after further discussion, postponed for five years. In fact, all of David Cameron's suggestions were dismissed in one way or another. The referendum went ahead, we voted out and time marches on ...
How surprised I was to learn this week then, that Angela Merkel has called for the self same thing for Germany, i.e. the waiving of benefits for the immigrants over there in Germany for the initial five years.
Is that hypocritical or what!
These are some of my personal thoughts on life after the referendum.
