And from The Anglophilic Anglican (meme inspired by a friend’s FB timeline comment):
Congratulations to the British people who voted for Brexit, on this day of independence from the EU after more than three years of struggle and uncertainty (ABC news notes that the departure comes 3½ years after the country voted by a margin of 52%-48% to walk away from the European Union).
I pray it will be the beginning of not only a new, but a positive and successful era in British history, as I have always believed it would be!
And for those who didn’t… hold your pints, mates, and watch this!
