Throughout the #Brexit debate, I’ve tried to be objective in the face of myths, and stick to verified facts when confronted by barefaced liars. But I will not be called a ‘traitor’. I am a European citizen first and foremost, and removing that from me is stripping away part of my identity. It’s barbaric.
I live in a country divided; by hate, by fear, by politics, and by economics. There are many reasons for this.

Even the most divided cultures and can, through increased understanding, grow to accept one another.
Recently, I’ve come across a branch of ‘alternative medicine’ called naturopathy which claims to be able to cure ills and prevent disease using only the wonders of nature. With no evidence to back up their claims, and practitioners stopping patients seeking genuine medical treatment for real conditions; I believe that deluded belief systems such as this, and those who evangelise them, are a danger to others and to society.
