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.
As an Eastern-European in the UK, I have to say that there is some hostility towards us in the UK but it's mainly on social media. I live in Surrey, this is a remainer area and I have never experienced any negative affect in person. However, I have met aggression online. Lots of people expect us to suddenly disappear and they don't understand how we can be still here. This usually comes from the not so intelligent members of social media and you can ignore them as they are also the coward ones so they are only big brave boys online. :-)
