As 2018 comes to an end I feel I want to say to the people who voted to leave the EU that their decision based on their beliefs has caused us 2 ½ years of stress and uncertainty with perhaps us ultimately having to apply to stay in the country we have adopted as our home for the last 10 (good) years. We are aware that EU citizens in the UK are probably in a worse situation and that there will be many more people here in France who will be struggling with this situation more than us and our heart goes out to them. We are and will remain to be European.
We hope you get back the control you are seeking and you are not actually giving it to the most right-wing UK government we have lived under. We hope you get the sovereignty back that you think (?) you have lost. We hope that by giving away your (and your children’s) freedom of movement that the control of our borders that we already had is somehow manifested in a way that justifies your sacrifice. We do not wish ill of you but want you to be aware of consequences…that’s all!
