I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Britain’s EU Referendum

 

Today, the UK decides in a nationwide referendum whether to leave (Brexit) or stay (Bremain) within the EU. There is a lot of impassioned debate on both sides, and much controversy too. What will the future hold for the UK-EU relationship?. Only time (and votes) will tell.
