I’ve done a few things this week that I probably won’t be able to do in the same way in a little more than a year from now. They include:
- driving through three European countries without an international driving licence or extra insurance
- taking up employment without a work permit
- using my mobile phone on UK rates (if you imagine that UK phone companies will stick to European rules when they don’t have to, think again; there are still penal rates applying to phones used on the sea crossing).
Theresa May has called for the UK to ‘come back together’ and promises to take account of “the views of everyone who cares about this issue”. All the government’s attention has been focused on trade and migration. Those of us who care about having existing rights taken away have been offered no thought or consideration at all.
