Impact of the Decision To Leave the EU

It is now clear that the British people have made the choice to leave the European Union. The country has spoken and it is for us to listen.

Toolhardy - GIY News

When I visit the garage to do manly stuff (cutting, sawing, sanding, hammering etc) I have to avoid eye contact (figuratively speaking) with this Boulevard of Broken Tool Dreams because it is an embarrassment to me, a reminder of my appalling lack of DIY skills.
