Addendum to the Referendum.

I just had a thought. If we Brits were to pull out of the EU, would it mean that all those nice Poles and Romanians and Latvians and Croatians I’ve met over the past few years will have to go home? I don’t think I’d like that very much. Not only would it be a shame, it would also be a bit cruel to both sides. (One of them made the experience of buying this year's appointments calendar in Derby market a delight. She did, she did, really. I even went back to make sure she wasn't a fantastical product of my troubled mind.) And besides, they make Britain more cosmopolitan, and history does rather indicate that cosmopolitan places tend to be more interesting.

OK, that’s another reason for voting in. They’re building up.
