He did not answer, and walked off in a huff; but I believe he began to understand why I do not think it makes a lot of difference what happens (to me or anyone else) on June 23 rd when the British people ‘supposedly’ vote to stay in the EU or leave.
The above piece is no indication of whether I will vote to leave or stay – since as I suggest I am on the fence and can see advantages and disadvantages of voting either either way. I do however feel that Angela Merkel and her German colleagues have got too powerful within the EU power base – and I am coming around to voting for Britain to leave the EU simply in order to re-set the balance of power within the European corridors of power. This I feel is very important in the longer term for 'everyone' in Europe – including the Greeks, Italians, Spanish etc as well as the people of Britain; and after all the above conversation did take place in Krakow. And in a way... maybe the young man was right; we should care - but we must not allow the media to trivialise and confuse the discussion with its inane soundbites dished out every evening on the news channels as we eat our evening meals.
