In case you forgot, Cornwall voted to leave the EU. It also hasn't yet put up any barriers to homeownership here, either permanent or second homes.

So the majority of people here, which has a higher than average proportion of retirees, obviously share some of your concerns. They also have the door open to you should the burden of living in a multicultural city become too much for you.

There are 'primary residence' rules in St.Ives & Fowey and I believe one or two other Cornish towns

I did say "yet". It doesn't apply throughout Cornwall, and it only applies to new builds in a few very popular, and very expensive, seaside locations where local residents were being forced to look elsewhere.

There has been a dramatic rise in price here this last year, as people who are now able to work from home see no reason not to do so from beautiful Cornwall, and demand has outstretched supply.

We didn't vote to join. That was decided, correctly in my opinion, by Parliament on our behalf. The referendum in 1975 gave approval, by a 2/3rds majority, to continue our membership.

2/3rds is pretty decisive. There will always be those who disagree, but when the numbers are almost equally split, then the voices of those most affected ought to be listened to.

I believe the people were lied to by the Government of the day. ( not unusual I suppose) Of course, the Common Market bore little resemblance to the EU the UK voted to leave

It's too long ago for me to recall all the detail, but my instinct is that our political leaders then were people with much more integrity and trustworthiness than today's. Of course, the EU has evolved, but my central point remains. That it is the job of of our elected representatives to determine such matters and never to risk the future of our country by exposing it to the winds of chance inherent in a referendum.

Our job is to choose those representatives, which we are not doing very well. Which is not really our fault, as the system needs reform.

Labour, Lib Dem, and the Tories had all made EU referendum pledges in recent years. With the UK's veto of the EU bail out being ignored DC was maneuvered into a corner. Although, it might have been better for to start negotiating trade deals with other counties and identifying firm proposals for the Brexit deal prior to leaving. I don't think the EU ever thought we were series.

The approach taken by DC was a bit like handing in your resignation before you found a new job.

It was basically an economic necessity at the time. Most were pragmatic enough to see that.
Being in the EU went too far past economics and seemed to want everyone to be grateful to be East Germans. Still plenty more to come yet.
