We’ve turned our backs on Europe, our tiny, drizzly island looks set to become more isolated than ever before. But young people in Britain didn't vote for Brexit, and many are desperate to soften the blow.
While the United Kingdom may have voted to leave the European Union, London, like Scotland, voted to remain. Thousands marched in the capital to demand that Brexit be halted last night, saying a campaign based on lies and broken promises is an insult to democracy.
From unaccountable leaders to enforced austerity, the European Union is far from a progressive institution. But the Brexit campaign has fuelled the British right, and leaving now would endorse xenophobia, prejudice and nationalism.
On 23 June 2016 people across Britain will decide whether or not the United Kingdom should remain part of the European Union. Despite the rhetoric, the hysteria and the headlines, this may well be one of the most important decisions we'll make for a generation.
