Another country heard from

Was talking to youngest stepdaughter via Skype this morning. We were nattering light heartedly about the comedy channel that passes for UK news nowadays when Youngest vouchsafed without any word of encouragement from me; "Britain's fucked, isn't it?"

All I could do by way of reply was nod, slowly and carefully. Over the miles we shared a look of mutual understanding. "Okay." She said brightly. Clever girl.

I am very proud to have instilled some of the virtues of critical thinking with her. There is hope for the future.
