The minutes are ticking closer to the vote in the House of Commons on the Withdrawal Agreement for the UK’s terms on exiting the European Union, also known as the Brexit vote.

The result is already predicted; it’s the aftermath of that which will potentially enormous consequences for the people living in these isles, myself included. I sit and watch and wait, just like I did on 23 June 2016, and on 8 June 2017.

A few weeks ago I considered Brexit in light of the Latvian centenary, which I had recently celebrated. The essay that came out of that was published by Litro Magazine today.

No matter the result of the vote, it will be a defeat for me. But I have my sense of personal success, and continue sipping the Prosecco.
