A Small Brexit-Related Incident

I’m not completely sure whether I should note this for fear of making myself look a bit daft, but yesterday I was in one of the posher local supermarkets when something odd happened. I still wear a cap adorned with anti brexit badges when I’m out and about. I was just leaving when suddenly a youngish guy walked passed me. Spotting my cap, out of the blue he exclaimed something like “Brexit! Yes! Best thing ever!” He may well have just been trying to wind me up, but of course I was immediately incensed. I started to shout a few choice words at him, which he either didn’t understand or ignored, and the incident was over at that. It was barely worth noting really, if only to say something about the strength of feeling and division which still surrounds Brexit in the UK.
