#154 Extain

I have no idea whether Britain should stay in the EU or not. I don't really think there are too many imigrants and I'm concerned that large companies might be less inclined to invest in London if we go solo but I don't really know, you know? These are just my relatively uninformed suspicions.

When a friend of mine asked the question, I tried to blag it by saying what I thought a Dalai Lama style response might be. Which was fun. I can do his voice too. I think it would go something like this:

"When thinking about this question, some people look at what's in it for UK? What's in it for me? So we can make the decision without considering our brothers and sisters in other countries. If we're in a poor country, with very limited resources, this type of thinking is understandable. Also for some in the UK, I think also this. However, majority of people in UK, wealthy, by global standards. Isn't it? More wealthy than some other European countries. So, it can be helpful to think, not just what's in it for us but also what can we share?

I wouldn't go so far as to answer the question. I don't know the answer. So this week's blog post, in a way, is kind of pointless. I doubt it will come as much a surprise :)
