Recently I was having a chat with one of my second cousins at a big family get-together. The last time I had seen them their children were in their early teens.

Many commentators have said Brexit would mean central London would have a lower standing in the world, meaning less people would be employed in Central London, with the implication of lower wages, fewer jobs etc. in Central London, but we are in Bexhill, not Marylebone, Mayfair or any part of Zone 1 London.
