So, living in a country that isn't being torn apart by a cabal of plutocrats, media lackeys and die-hard racists is quite something.

This place might have its own problems, but far out, there's no atmosphere of barely-restrained fury.

...and that's saying something, considering the HUGE divisions that still remain between the former Federal Republic of West Germany, and the German Democratic Republic.

Well done Brexit - you made the differences between East and West look surmountable.

Notice I didn't blame Leave voters. They didn't ask for this. It's a game of cups and ball on a massive scale.

Everybody's been made to believe they're certain they know which cup the ball's under.
