Lack of confidence and some confusion around Brexit process increases in WGGS.

This morning Her Majesty the Queen gave Theresa May, the current Prime Minister, permission to hold talks about the plans on how to leave the EU. The European Union Notification of Withdrawal Bill was passed by MPs as law on Monday 12th confirming that Theresa May can tell the Council of the European Union that Britain is officially leaving the EU. This law has been triggered by the fact that the Prime Minister has announced that article 50 will be passed by the end of March. What we know now from the passing of this law is that Britain is definitely leaving. As this was going on in London I wondered if this news had reached the pupils at our school, WGGS.
Out of 15 pupils at WGGS, three did not know what Brexit was. Many pupils and staff who knew about the concept of Brexit had mixed feelings about whether it was a good or bad idea however some were very definite about their opinions. ‘I voted leave in the referendum in 1975 and I voted leave now,’ said a member of staff at the school. Some others thought it was a ‘stupid idea’ and they believed ‘it’s a shambles’. After hearing these strong opinions there were some people who thought ‘if we’re leaving, we’re leaving, just get on with it’.
