We have large swathes of the population who have clearly chosen sides in this momentous debate and of those, some, maybe even the majority, vehemently oppose the other side to the extent of not even being receptive of their views and concerns. We aim to create a bridge, or rather a give each side a megaphone and a speaker, so people can share and indulge in their own views, but, more importantly, listen and hopefully absorb views from opposing sides – this is to soften people’s stances and prevent a long-lasting hardening towards people of opposing views once the Brexit matter finishes, if it ever does.
Whether or not Brexit happens or if it’s a hard or soft Brexit, we need to get through this without polarising evermore. The fact remains, for now, the referendum was won by those wanting the UK to leave the EU and their choice must be respected, but, of course, the context of what happened before the referendum and what has happened since then can’t be ignored. If Brexit happens, it will change the UK permanently in terms of economics, politics, and even changing the very fabric of society – but, will it be for better or worse? Only time will tell.
