“I came first in 1970 as an ex­change stu­dent and met my part­ner – we are still to­gether. In 1980, I moved here. We have got a son and two granddaughters. Un­for­tu­nately, my son split from his wife and so we can’t move [over­seas]. We thought about leav­ing be­cause of the at­mos­phere of hos­til­ity to­wards peo­ple who don’t have a Bri­tish pass­port.

“We re­ally like Hol­land but presently it would be very hard be­cause we want to be near our grand­chil­dren, our friends are here. We are a mixed [na­tion­al­ity] fam­ily for whom it would be dif­fi­cult to be in one place un­less a so­lu­tion [for EU mi­grants] can be found. I have had some very spite­ful, neg­a­tive abu­sive re­sponses on Face­book from peo­ple who just click on my posts.”
