It is a big, decisive day today in Britain, as citizens will vote to decide whether to leave the EU (European Union) or stay. The Brexit vote as it has been coined. Unless you have purposely ignored the news of the day, you’ve no doubt heard at least the term if not arguments for both sides repeatedly since early this spring when it was announced the vote would take place.
The last time Britain voted on this very topic was in 1975 (two years after joining the EU) and the result was 67% to remain. But this go-around, speculation isn’t confident the vote will be as decisive for either side. Turn-out of the youth is expected to play a significant role, and with the tragic murder of Jo Cox, a member of Parliament last week, the engagement is clearly emotional and intense.
If you’re wondering about all of the details, who’s on which side and why and what the potential economic effects might be for Britain, the EU and the world, be sure to check out this simple article from The New York Times which breaks it all down quite nicely.
However, since I am not a British citizen and can only watch from the other side of the pond to see how it will all work out, I thought I would bring you a tour of a beautiful Cotswolds cottage that is sure to ameliorate your angst at least momentarily, should you have any about this significant decision.
