A referendum allowing UK citizens to vote on whether or not to leave the EU was held on Thursday, June 23, 2016. The “leave” side won by 52 to 48. Scotland and Northern Ireland both had higher showings from the ‘stay’ side, but both countries are part of the UK so the overall vote affects them. The European Union is an economic and political partnership with 28 countries taking part. It allows members to use a common currency (the Euro) and citizens to move through the member countries easily. The EU has its own parliament and its rules affect all members. The UK now has two years to negotiate its withdrawal. You can learn more about Brexit by reading “The UK’s EU referendum: All you need to know” on the BBC here

kardashians pillow fight

Two matching Kardashians smile as they hit each other with soft fluffy pillows. Photo credit – well, it’s off a Khloe’s instagram, but she’s in the photo, so it’s actually a big mystery who took it.

Khloe and Kourtney had a pillow fight and it was so awesome, they posted photos on Instagram! They both wore the same pajamas, maybe because they wanted to show solidarity or that they’re in the same family. Even though they’re fighting, you can tell they actually like each other by their happy smiles. You can bet that the 48% of UK citizens who actually like being part of an economic and political union are not smiling. As usual, if you want to know more about these two idiots, google it yourself.
