Makes you think

There are a few stories in this month’s magazine that made me think.  Take a look at the Brexit story on page eight written by my brother David, for example.  We have stayed quiet about Brexit for a long time because nobody had the faintest idea what was going on and I saw no point in adding to the speculation.  But now, as B-Day approaches (again), we have broken our silence, mainly for our overseas friends who constantly ask what we think about it.
