I suppose I have a bit of a problem in that I work myself into such a state that things seem either totally good or totally bad, with nothing in between. I've heard this from a couple of people recently: I seem to see the world as black and right, rather than as many shades of grey. Thus, to me, the EU is a truly noble establishment which can do no wrong, and Trump and Farage are embarrassments to humanity with absolutely no redeeming features. Of course, deep down I know this isn't the case, and that I shouldn't be so one sided. Things are far less absolute. The EU had many faults, and - who knows? - leaving it could even be a boon. As for Farage and Trump, for the record I do not want them, or anyone else, dead. I'm sure deep down they have some redeeming qualities - maybe Farage likes cricket or something. They just wind me up, and come across as very, very arrogant. Yet I know I should not get so angry with them, and I shouldn't be so one sided. After all, such absolutism is one of the very reasons I oppose such people in the first place.
