For the last three years, the media in Britain has been dominated by one word which, even just four years ago, meant nothing. Brexit has taken over our TVs, our newspapers and our minds, creating a nation split almost exactly down the middle, and yet strangely united in both our confusion and disbelief, and in … Continue reading I Will Not be Silenced: The Effects Brexit is Having on All of Us
I haven’t written in so long — not for myself, at any rate.
