POLITICS

We can't talk about 2016 without mentioning Brexit. Still reporting everyday in the news, Brexit was a shock for everyone in the United Kingdom, as well as the world. On June 23rd, 2016, people in the UK went out to the vote for the referendum whether they wanted to leave or remained in the EU. The majority of people voted for "leave". That left many people feeling shocked and angry.
