It’s time to talk to the neighbours
What about the neighbours? We're a fractious lot, the four nations of the United Kingdom. We're all facing the same daunting outlook yet progressive thinking is hindered by divisions within and across border lines and not at all helped by controlling top down rule of central government. If the UK breaks up we still have to live with the economic consequences of what's happening with the unruly bunch next door; isn't it time we talked to each other?
