    I'm sick of all the negativity and infighting following the result.

    What I'd really like to do over the next few weeks, is to post on Facebook one positive story per day.

    Trouble is, I can't find many.

    @CanadianLori posted one on the other thread, so I've shared that. Any more?

    My goal is to try to curtail some of the blind panic that's going on.

    Here's my first one, courtesy of CanadianLori.

            I really think that Brexit is going to be the best thing to happen in, well, my lifetime.

            I am very excited to se just how many countries stand up and be counted. This is THE best!

            When I visit, I will shake the hand of everyone wise enough to have voted out. I am also thriĺled that we did not hesitate to stand up and say, "We've got your back". I have never been prouder of my Dominion, Canada. To me it is a relationship that has unbound strength. And I always have two Maple Leaf Flags flying so you realize that I already am a true patriot :)

            Wait and see, there will be a lineup to deal with you. Good one!:yes:

            Hail Brittania. You still rule in my heart!

            now pass it on. Please :)

                I watched a news item on BBC where they interviewed a man who owns a bicycle manufacturing company. He was so positive that it was heartwarming.

                He said that he already had people out in other EU countries working on new deals for once we're out and he has already got some more contracts because of the change in the exchange rate.

                His attitude was that we could all take advantage of the positives and end up with a stronger Britain.

                    Strangely, since the referendum, I've not found a single Euro or Cent with my metal detector :th scifD36:

                    Found over 8 euro's worth last year :noidea:

                          I've just read an article on f***book, about wearing a safety pin in your jacket to show you are a safe person should there be a racist attack in the street, the person under attack can run to you for help....the sales of safety pins will go up...that must be a good thing for the safety pin market! :heehee:
                          Joking aside what a nice idea & how reassuring that we do have some good people in this country who aren't racist & would help another fellow human in time of need :dbgrtmb:
