Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Quote:
And here a great article about a young man from Prague- about his first visit beyond the border when he was 10, about their fears from Russia and about what it now feels like to be a second class European.

It is a story that a girl wrote. It is great, fits for my life, too. Though I tend to not glorify Anglophone countries, lived in them enough to know better. The 2nd class citizenship can follow one anywhere, here one is made to feel it sometimes, too, by some people. The best is to smile at ignorance and continue one's work, projects and dreams, just like the autor of the article and her husband.

This is, btw, one single epic EF thread. A legend. I am going to ruin it a little, I know - but thanks, community, for being civil and debating in a classy way. 90 pages, wow.
