I'm not afraid of death, but I resent it. I think it's unfair and irritating. Every time I see something beautiful, I not only want to return to it, but it makes me want to see other beautiful things. I know I'm not going to get to all the places I want to go.

And they wonder what the point of it all is. Put simply, many ask 'why can't we just have what we voted to join - a common market?'
David Cameron
