Christine Cé, 51, London
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.”
