Interesting read! I'm currently studying in France, and I must say it's fascinating to watch this all unfold from a European perspective. I'm doing my best to consume news in French (though here I am on an English-language site, what can I say) and though I'm reading from sources that have similar political leanings to what I read at home in the States, I've been struck by how differently Brexit is being covered.

Intriguing that de Gaulle saw the UK as a "black sheep" of sorts all along...
