I fear, having endured French Canadian nationalism for 20 years, this Brexit business will go on for many years. Imagine having Donald T. around for that long. That's what it feels like to be in a situation of perpetual uncertainty although I suppose the US has it's own problems. Like you say, these sorts of nationalistic ideas take a long time to change. I've also fallen out with my brother who rants incessantly about the EU and how it's ruining everything in the UK. And you think I'm nuts, you should read his emails. I can't cope with it, to be absolutely honest. It's destroyed what is left of my family. It's pretty much ruined our relationship.

I get very frustrated by this rise in the culture of "royalty" with celebs like the Beckams and Real Housewives, everybody cozying up to the Brit royals and wanting to be a "Countess". I must have missed something along the way because I thought the world was moving away from all that garbage, that the Commonwealth countries would ditch the monarchy, but here I am, in my early dotage and we're plagued by this nonsense and returning to tribalism.

We have a Phillipina girl working for us helping with our old lady. We've helped her buy a piece of land in Mindinao and we'll help her build a house there. We were thinking of moving there, since the price of everything in the UK is through the roof, we won't have the same rights in Europe, Canada is too fecking cold and this place is a den of thieves run out of Istambul. I hear Uruguay is nice!

I wonder if it's not actually warmer on the West Coast of Canada then you remember ?
This doesn't look bad to me. Vancouver is a very nice place.

Brother of the late Hitchens does like his tinfoil, obviously. There's no indication of anything leading to a civil war in Britain. They reap what they sowed eventually, but that will be an economic desaster. Nothing a reborn wannabe Thatcher can't fix, since it's only the great unwashed that will suffer.

Apparently MPs have voted that animals do not have emotions or feel pain. This is so stunningly stupid that I can only assume it's a precursor to trying to sneak in fox hunting again. The Tories are regressive in their animal policies, but I didn't realize things were this bad.

Article about the above

Oh fuck. This and Coul Links. Maybe it's just as well I'm stuck in this fucking country again. It means I need to fight this shit.

Edit: Just found a petition

Wow. I knew Parliament was powerful, but I didn't know they could decree what reality was. Facepalm

I am sure the Russians would be happy to oblige...

It's the only part of Canada with decent year round weather. I looked up house prices there a few years ago and found I couldn't afford to live there. Here's a bungalow for $1.7 million: https://www.bchousefinders.com/homes/407.../78918680/

My daughter lives in Toronto so I would go there. It's an option.

Yabut, it's blocks from the ocean. There have to be other choices.
