A POEM A DAY - FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT



Denied a vote in the Referendum and General Elections in the UK, I have no vote or voice in the developing crisis. I am distressed by the situation of the 3 million EU citizens living, working and contributing in the UK and am equally affected by uncertainty over the future of my family and British friends living in Spain and throughout the EU. All I can say is that thanks to the Freedom of Movement rights granted by membership of the European Union I had a second chance at life. Thanks to the warmth and welcome of my Spanish neighbours and friends it has been a good life, my family have been made welcome, worked, been educated and contributed to our local community. I regret deeply that British citizens' right to Freedom of Movement is to end.
