    Lots more answers for you, Burnet News Club!
    Can you summarise what Graham says about whether Brexit will be a cultural wall?
    What does he say are the pros and cons?
    And a different question: if something is difficult, does it mean we shouldn't do it? Can you give any examples?

      He says that 'seeing Brexit as a cultural wall is a massive mistake.' He goes on to explain that there are a lot of independent nation-states within the EU. And that the UK is a very successful democratic country.
      One positive is that the UK wants to make its own laws when it leaves the EU. I agree with him, on the fact that it's a positive, because just because we make our own rules doesn't mean that we're disrespecting European culture: laws aren't part of a culture ( according to me ).

      If something is difficult we should still do it because doing the thing might have positive outcomes. Take waking up in the morning before school as an example. It's hard but we all still have to do it five times a week. Waking up in the morning to go to school means that we could find out something new, we won't miss out on important things and we won't miss things that our friends have to tell us about.
