Tell me your story
Dutch, feeling very integrated for 30 years. Suddenly my sense of belonging has been blown up, my rights reduced, constantly lied to, several times insulted, all without me having a say in it and Brexit has been “won” by endless lying and cheating… I no longer feel at home, and not sure if I want to be a part of this dishonest and intolerant society. As my partner and our 5 boys are British, it’s not easy to leave. I have become a activist for the3Million, StAlbans4Europe group and activist to allow dual nationality for Dutch citizens caught up in Brexit by no fault of their own (many Dutch in the UK do not tick the boxes to the current outdated exemptions).
