23rd June: The day I felt ashamed to be British

Source: www.timeshighereducation.com
It feels surreal. Emotions are high. Britain is saturated with uncertainty.
I can truly say today I feel ashamed to be British.
The outcome of the EU referendum has left the world stunned as Britain embarks on the lengthy, unstable road to leaving the EU.
After visiting the Auschwitz concentration camps and witnessing the horrifying consequences of prejudice and discrimination, it is heartbreaking to watch the rejection of an institution that fights for freedom, unity and peace. An institution that is not perfect but is needed in the world, especially at a time where fascism is on the rise and an enormous humanitarian crisis of Migrants fleeing their terror-stricken countries is continuing to worsen. These problems, I feel, will only be exacerbated following the decision to leave the EU.
