Last month, I met a nice lady from England. I told her that I was circulating a petition for the queen to take America back. I am doing this because it doesn't seem like we are able to govern ourselves any more. So, maybe the queen could govern us as part of England again. However, she reminded me that her country is embroiled in its own chaotic situation: getting England out of the European Union (EU), known as Brexit. By withdrawing from the EU, the U.K. appears to be going from the frying pan into the fire – doing itself far more harm than good, causing economic hardship for the British people. (In the interest of transparency, some of this story is fiction.)
