U.K. Independence! We we are getting used to being a sovereign country, after 47 years as part of what morphed into the European Union.

The World did not end, Europe is still there and more importantly so are we. So much for Project Fear and the prophets of doom.

Now we can make our own laws, choose our trading partners and decide who can visit our country.

We thank Boris Johnson and our new Government for getting us this far. A bright and prosperous future beckons, we wish them all the best in making it happen.

There is still much to be done, the work is just starting, we will see.

Special thanks to Nigel Farage, without whom this may never have got off the ground.
