Chris­tine Cé, 51, Lon­don

The Guardian - - NATIONAL -

A learn­ing tech­nol­o­gist at the Lon­don School of Hygiene and Trop­i­cal Medicine, French na­tional Cé says she is “heart­bro­ken” that af­ter 27 years in Eng­land she has to con­sider mov­ing abroad.

“My plan was al­ways to stay here, be­cause when I came here I just fell in love with the coun­try and the peo­ple.

“The idea of start­ing again at 50 and go­ing back to France? I have no net­work there. Here, I am set­tled, I’ve got a mort­gage, I have a son who is Bri­tish and who has just started col­lege here.

“But I don’t feel re­as­sured at all. My worst fear? That Bri­tain will de­scend into a ter­ri­ble state. I used to think it was open and in­clu­sive and tol­er­ant but it’s be­com­ing more in­ward-look­ing and na­tion­al­ist.”
