Quote of the Day

[Content Note: Bigotry.]

"It is my fierce determination to get the right deal for every single person in this country. For, as we face the opportunities ahead of us on this momentous journey, our shared values, interests and ambitions can—and must—bring us together."—British Prime Minister Theresa May, in the letter to European Council president Donald Tusk that will formally begin the UK's departure from the European Union.

It's pretty cool (ahem) to reference "shared values" when Brexit was decided in no small part on xenophobic fearmongering.

I always love (ahem ahem) to see leaders calling for unity after a campaign of vile othering.
