There is an official UK Government and Parliament Petition being circulated calling upon HM Government to implement a rule that if the remain or leave vote is less than 60%, based on a turnout less than 75%, there should be another referendum. Turnout in the EU Referendum, for whatever reason (complacency, other things on their mind?) was less than 50% in the 18-24 age group, which is sad considering this will be one of the demographics most affected in the future by the UK's withdrawal from the EU.If a petition gets 10,000 signatures, the government will respond.  If a petition gets 100,000 signatures, it is considered for debate in Parliament. This petition currently has 3,379,642 signatures and the number is rising rapidly as I write.  Only British citizens and UK residents have the right to sign, therefore, unlike during the referendum last Thursday, this includes ex-pats.  The petition has already been presented to the UK Parliament and is awaiting response.  Maybe there is a second chance with this petition.  If you are interested, here is the link to sign it to ask for a second referendum......perhaps, this time, it will also include ex-pats: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/131215If you agree with the content of this e-mail, then please pass it on to as many people as you know either by e-mail or social media as quickly as possible.If you do not, I apologise for any inconvenience.Please pass the word, especially to those Brits who were disenfranchised to vote.

I really want to get back up to speed with my Italian but I am already a reasonably proficient speaker. I am therefore looking for an advanced level app to help me but I have so far found nothing very interesting in the app store. Any ideas?

I have people coming out to visit in December to visit the Chrismas market and village with us but I am wondering if this is a good idea now, given the current lock-down of public events etc. What are your opinions?

Hello all: I have had a lot of trouble finding a good, efficient tailor who deals with women's clothing. I live near Leuven and would be willing to go to Brussels or other nearby areas.  Maybe there's even an online service? I have tried three different tailors in Leuven, but each one has taken at least three weeks to finish even small jobs and there have been problems like clothes ending up far too small or very asymmetric/lopsided.  For a special event in about three weeks, I want to have a dress turned into a top.  Thanks to the excellent local food, it is too small for me around the waist and hips.  I want to have fabric from the bottom of the dress added to the sides to make the top larger. I'd love to find a careful tailor to do this because the fabric is a kind of satin and mistakes will be obvious! If anyone can suggest a reliable tailor who can handle this kind of thing, I would be very grateful.
