Cathy Roblin, 60, so­cial care, Southamp­ton

The Guardian - - NATIONAL -

“I have lived all of my adult life in this coun­try. The op­tion of go­ing back to France and find­ing work is no longer avail­able. I work with adults and I see all the care homes. With­out Euro­pean work­ers they would close. I haven’t come here to take the job of a Bri­tish per­son, I have come here to plug a short­age.

“I have al­ways loved Eng­land for its di­ver­sity. That to me has al­ways been re­ally im­por­tant. My daugh­ter was asked the day af­ter the ref­er­en­dum: ‘When are you pack­ing your bags to go?’ We’ve had noth­ing to re­as­sure us. Up un­til a week ago, I wasn’t go­ing to ap­ply for Bri­tish cit­i­zen­ship but now I feel I have no op­tion.”
