They can talk sense, sometimes, these kids!
In the UK at the moment, the papers and news shows are repeatedly showing articles and items regarding Britain’s EU Referendum.
Just yesterday my colleagues and I were talking about it, saying that really we have no idea what is best. The with business acumen say we must stay for, the economy. But the speak in such high faulted terms that Jo Bloggs on the street won’t listen, so that point falls on deaf ears.
Many people, fed up with the immigration mess the country appears to be in, say get out of Europe, close the borders!
But it’s hard to get a rounded picture for the average person. There are many implications with staying in the EU, but also many issues that will rise with leaving.
Who knows how the country will vote?
This morning, Lil Man, who is a worldly wise 10 year old suddenly gave me his opinion.
LM: We should stay in Europe!
LM: Because it’s better for us all.
Me: How will it be better? I’m not saying you’re wrong, I’m genuinely interested in what you think.
LM: Well, if we stay in, we have more allies, and much better defences against terrorism.
There you go. A 10 year old nowadays can’t even have a simple innocent childhood, as he is already thinking about things like terrorism.
But I think he has a valid point.
What do you think?
