From 'Brexit for Americans' - March-April 2019 issue - 'The American' magazine
I have tried to stay out of ‘Brexit and ‘Remainer’ arguments; the invective is unlike anything I have witnessed in 43 years in this ‘green and pleasant land.’ Michael Portillo’s superb documentary about Britain in WW1 revealed that tons of ordnance were produced by hundreds of British women across the nation: this gritty country can see its way through Brexit hardships. ‘Project Fear’ - no food, no medicines etc in a nation that saw its way through two world wars started by Europe, epidemics, the Great Depression, Rationing and postwar hardship is absurd.
How does Brexit affect Americans? After furious EU expatriates objected to a £65 fee to stay here (Americans have to pay MUCH more!) MP Ellie Reeves (The American Magazine February 5) has suggested US expats can now approach the ‘Windrush Scheme’ taskforce to challenge the Home Office when they are suddenly told they can’t stay here after years of paying tax, VAT and council tax.
