I’m a Brit, born and bred, currently living in Scotland after 15 years in England.
I am thoroughly embarrassed that my country voted to leave Europe and at the number of people who now think Britain isn’t the place for them. Yes, we voted to leave (I didn’t) but a huge number voted to remain. And I firmly believe that if there was another referendum, we’d vote to remain this time.
We are not racist. We are not xenophobic. We welcome everyone with open arms and our country is all the better for it.
So please do come. Yes, we have our problems like every country has, but on the whole, we’re a tolerant bunch.
