Nationalism won’t solve the problems of the past. The union was blamed then, but now dangerously remains a scapegoat.

Just as it’d be foolish to leave the EU rather than reform it and make it work better for everyone involved, it’d be a shame to kill off the UK when it has so much potential to enhance quality of life if it works, united, for the majority of people rather than the few who currently control it and benefit from its extraordinary wealth.
