Brexit or Remain? I'm torn between the two - and the future's a risk either way
It was the feminist movement that coined the phrase "the personal is political", and when it comes to the looming Brexit vote in just over two weeks' time, the personal will indeed be political as I enter that voting booth (where I have a vote, in deepest Kent).
I am acutely aware that it is in Ireland's interest that the United Kingdom should remain in the European Union. All the top economic specialists have said so, and anyone involved with cross-border relations with Northern Ireland has voiced their concerns about reimposing border controls.
I certainly feel the pull of loyalty towards Ireland's interest, and for such a reason I should place my 'X' in the box marked 'Remain'.
