Toodle-pip, European Union

Brexit underline

Time to go it alone

Today, the UK is finally leaving the European Union, one of the most historic events in its history.

You’re either cheering or crying. No middle ground on this one.

Not going to get into the politics here, the pros and cons, the predictions. It’s happening and now we must all hope for the best and see if it was the right decision.

Will be keeping an eye on stats regarding more Brits coming to Toronto in the next few years. Or more Brits going home.

Who knows?

BBC TV News wants to chat to Brits abroad about Brexit

The Beeb wants to chat to Brits abroad

We got an e-mail from someone at the Beeb who wants to chat to Brits abroad about Brexit. Here’s the request so please contact Victoria if interested.

Hi everyone, I’m Victoria Cook, a journalist at the BBC News in the UK.

I am looking for some British expats living abroad to take part in a short BBC TV News feature about Brexit. I’m keen to hear from people whose lives and/or businesses may be affected either positively or negatively after January 31.

It wouldn’t involve much commitment — just a short video message from your phone!

My contact details:

Tel: (from Canada) 011-44-7711348905
E-mail: victoria.cook@bbc.co.uk

Happy to explain more about it if you’re interested.

Kind regards,
Victoria Cook (in London)
