How sad. And how small it makes us look.

And my husband decided that we should move to Britain if Austria will make it too hard for him to keep Austrian res. permit post Brexit. He overlooks that I will be a "bloody foreigner" post Brexit.
To be honest I was never keen to leave Austria but in the past the reason was MiL who hated "Germans".

I think one thing isn't really registering in the UK and that is how far the disengagement is on the"other" side, how far Europe already retreated from the UK. It is sad but Brexit is the disconnection between former neighbors and close friends. It goes deep unfortunately.

Do you believe that story? It's almost too perfect isn't it? Is it representative? Are millions of 'foreigners' being bumped into and abused all over the UK? Even used racism as a comparison tool with it.

We all know Brexit is a disgraceful mistake and a total shit show but honestly, we can do better at showing what a disaster it's going to be than this.

It is indeed very sad ,but has been three years in the making. Anyone who is a non Brit, or like me is an Ex-pat living in Europe with Non Brit friends living in the UK, has known ( and cringed) at this rising tide of hate. My lovely Danish friend ,I have mentioned before. Living in Kent with her Irish OH ,Now retired, and once hoping for a well deserved happy life near to family and friends ,has now given up, and spends most of her time either in Denmark or in Ireland.She could no longer stand ,either the looks she got in the local shops when she opened her mouth .Or the one or two times she actually had abuse thrown at her for being a foreigner .People need to face up to this .The Britain we knew as kids is gone. The Britain who revels in its WW2 stories of bravery and defending the underdog.. is gone. Certainly in the capitol. We have allowed the populist mob to rule. We don't have to look very far across the channel to see where that went horrible wrong not that many years ago.

All sadly true, and summed-up by the letters EDL & the English flag seen hanging from more & more windows.

Agree with the first part of your post!
There have always been people who for one reason or another disliked or abused what they see as 'foreigners'---from 'wherever they came'. (Even posting on this Forum!!!)
They are a minority.
Brexit publicity has given a temporary excuse for such people to express themselves. There will be a different excuse in future years.

Imo Johnson may well be the PM who achieves a cigarette & chocolate-bar UK economy.
He's just 11 months away from it too; - "England's Victory"

Many members of the EDL and Tommy Robinson supporters have joined the Tory party since the election, estimates are around 5,000, not a big number, but a big percentage when you consider the Tory party membership is less than 120,000. The Tory party is already racist leaning with it's current membership and the beliefs of a number of it's MPs, including, I'm sorry to say, the PM himself.

I do not admire Boris Johnson!---However considering he has pride in his Turkish origins and was married for 25 years to his Punjabi origin ex-wife he is hardly racist leaning.
He writes silly articles in newspapers for 'effect' and controversy-------even managed to make a stupid joke about alcohol in a Sikh Temple!

Does it need t be millions? Isn't the widespread increase in such examples of anti-foreigner feeling (even when some are not even foreign) enough?

This is his problem, people remember those articles and WILL always bring them up in discussions, In my opinion he was the worst candidate because of his baggage, he wrote a book in which were many, many racist and islamophobic comments, and, had the MSM critiscised him about them as much as they did the alleged anti-semitism of Jeremy, he probably would have lost the election, it was only the 'Get Brexit done' rhetoric that persuaded people. Turkish ex wife notwithstanding he IS racist.
