Why don't these morons ask a range of Brits instead of just the ones who comply with their pro-EU agenda?

As a Brit I know a few of us and the majority are pretty pleased we're leaving the EU but then you could say we are selfish because we have our status here secured.

In either case the headline is misleading and though The Local and that prat Savage (who thinks he is the face of expats in Sweden) have never claimed to be balanced the coverage on Brexit has been nothing short of shocking.

'The Local Sweden's news in English'? Only if the price is right and it complies with their fantasy.

It just goes to prove what Depeche Mode sang about in 1986 regarding the press.
