Actually, right after the Brexit vote, I was hiking in a group with someone from London. It was actually the Americans in the group who kept pestering him the whole time about Brexit to the point where I just avoided the subject. So, no, I don't think you'll bore the US list members. Of course, ten years from now if we're having a Brexit discussion three times a year, then, yes, it might get boring. ;)
