So you won yesterday by a hair thin margin on such a transcendental question. You got rid of Cameron and you probably will get "common man" Boris or Farage as prime minister in charge of dealing all the unpopular mess that is coming your way. But I guess the Sterling Pound today is already having a few of you wondering if they did the right thing. Heck! No more cheap vacations in sunny Europe for the time being.
But if somethings could well change, some others cannot, no matter what you may believe.
To begin with, Brexit is not done deal yet. There will be a tough negotiation and when the final package comes I bet the "agreement" will not pass the muster of a general election or even a referendum. And if it were to pass, my money is on the UK changing its name to Little England as there is no reason why the Scots should be dragged down into your folly. Let me put it this way, your feel good vote of yesterday may end up in a bitter disappointment as you try to effectively "change" things.
And for all your new born chauvinism there are things that cannot change. Let's take France, for example.
No major countries that I can think of have such an intimate common history than France and England. We made each other what we are today.
The invasion of French words into English language may only be matched by the invasion of English words into French.
You may have won the Napoleonic wars but France had won the Hundred Years one before, and courtesy of both wars England and France became true nations.
You may have kicked out France from India and Canada but the French made you lose the big enchilada of the 13 colonies.
You may disparage French garlicky concoctions but the French drink better tea than you do.
We may have been rivals for ever but our best and brightest elites always spoke French AND English.
Montesquieu wrote the main texts on separation of powers and civil society, but he wrote these because of the impressions England made on him.
You keep buying countryside homes in France but the French have truly made London their favorite foreign capital to vacation and live.
And let's not forget freedom for the world owes to France and England mixing their blood in two world wars and resolute unity on many crisis afterwards.
And you think that Brexit will erase all of this? Think twice.
