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

You've missed the point completely.
He's spent the last 54yrs living in the UK, US, Middle East and Spain, but has also worked in other countries. We both love the UK and his comment was not a reflection upon the the cities themselves. It was a comment on the climate of discourse at the moment, and Liverpool is the notable exception to this which might surprise some.

He's an affable, approachable guy. The kind who makes friends everywhere he goes. We went on a pub crawl in the UK a year ago, just the two of us, and he got into conversations in every single pub we went into, which is no mean feat on a Monday night. This time around, some people have turned nasty when they realised he lives on the continent and not in the UK. Once, you could see as a blip, but it's happened several times this last month.
