Temporary tattoos

Well the tattoos have been a success, I just need to put together instructions and photos for uploading to my Etsy store.  The last few weeks have been rather overshadowed for me by the astounding goings on with UK politics.  52% of people in this country voted to leave the EU, although if you see some of the videos going around, you may realise that some of them didn’t know what they were voting for or understood the issues.  I personally voted to remain, being part of the EU was, in my opinion, beneficial to all of us.  Being a member of the Green party which is socialist by nature, having another body above our current conservative government (right wing) felt like having a safety net.  EU rules have done a great deal of good in protecting people’s rights, especially concerning minimum wage, maternity and paternity pay, and the working times directive.  I liked the idea of being part of a European community and I think isolation is a step backwards in this day and age.  The issues still aren’t settled and I don’t know what’s going to happen with Scotland and Northern Ireland who both voted to remain.  Perhaps they will leave the United Kingdom and this country will have a different name.  Being half scottish, I can’t help feeling that if this happens, we may go to Scotland but I guess we’ll have to wait for the dust to settle.
