One of the oldest fables known to mankind tells of a dog going out for a walk in the forest. Meeting a wolf, the dog asked what it was doing there. The wolf explained that he was looking for something to eat. Come home with me, said the dog, you’ll be given plenty of food, you’ll get some every day. Suspicious, the wolf asked, “What are you wearing round your neck?” “My collar, the master put it on me.” “I see,” the wolf said, “you are fed because you have to do what your master wants. As for me, I’d rather be hungry and free.”
That’s exactly where the British are with their referendum about the European Union.
