    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Modern slavery includes bonded labour.

    Have some conversations with some Bobs and you will find out some of them are in what appears to be bonded labour.

    Well slavery is still pretty rife

    In a single country — India, which is the worst offender — there are currently 18 and a half million slaves. To put that into perspective, there are six and a half million more slaves in India right now than were imported to North America, South America, Central America, and the Caribbean Islands combined during the entire history of the transatlantic slave trade — 373 years, from Columbus’s discovery of the Americas to the end of the Civil War.

    Echt!

    "USA is going insular with "America First", the UK has voted for isolation and a backwards looking "Little England".

    Lead the world?

    This is the blind leading the blind down the pan. "
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    You'll be fine. You have already run away to Germany. Angela will look after you, as long as you are prepared to rent your spare room out to a refugee!
