Fearful, uncertain, angry, ashamed. Betrayed, bereft, unsettled, abandoned. Collateral damage, high and dry. Cast adrift, torn asunder. For many UK citizens who have built homes, families and lives in Europe, these words express how they have felt since the EU referendum upturned their lives. As part of the European Union, the generations who have moved from Britain to the rest of Europe have done so with an assumption of belonging. They could live, love, work, start a family, start a business, own property, and contribute to society in the same way that someone could move from Kent to Cumbria in the knowledge that their citizenship and status would remain inviolable. For UK citizens in Europe, the 2016 referendum shattered that security overnight. Their assumption of belonging was annulled, their assured citizenship called into question, the very ground beneath their feet removed. The first volume, In Limbo, provided a platform for the testimonies of EU citizens living in post-referendum Britain. In Limbo Too complements this with the narrative of Britons living in Europe. This book is their voice, their stories from Limbo.

The outcome of the European Union membership referendum in 2016 has presented the United Kingdom with one of its greatest challenges of modern times. As negotiations for an exit strategy continue, this volume looks to open up conversations on the socio-legal implications of such a monumental transition. Aimed at addressing issues relating to Brexit that affect every aspect of British society, this book seeks to not just list the problems but to offer viable solutions for “the way forward”. Divided into three parts, this book presents a comprehensive yet accessible discussion of the impact of Brexit on the United Kingdom. Part I brings together three social studies that reveal that Brexit may be the result of international nationalist narratives, and that the choice to leave the EU is already affecting Brits abroad and the future opportunities for British students. Part II turns its attention to national legal issues that are affected such as the Irish border, waste management, moral copyright, and the support of local enterprises. Lastly, Part III investigates commercial law touching on important topics such as international litigation, insolvency and tax law. As this publication suggests eventual solutions to several issues caused by Brexit, it may be of interest to not only other academics working in the field, but also to policy makers and relevant stakeholders.

I am not an immigrant tonight. Tonight, I am a resident of the United Kingdom. But tomorrow: what? We are privileged, and we cannot conceive of a world where our right to live the lives we've built, where we've built them, could be challenged or taken away. But that is the world we live in, and it happens every day. Those refugees washing up on our borders and terrifying us: what do we think happened to them? They had lives, too, that they took for granted, in places they called home. They had rights that were snatched away. And here they are now, at our borders: unwanted, and wanting nothing but to be where they feel that they belong. These things happen, all over this world we live in, but not here. Not to us. But times change and rights are revoked, and it's happening: here, now, to us. We are exiled in the land of limbo, with the lives we've built in bundles on our backs, travelling in a direction entirely uncharted and we don't know, when we reach the borders, what we will find. It doesn't serve us right and it isn't fair and we don't deserve it, but it's humbling and perhaps a little humility is something we need. Along with the shock and the hurt and the indignation that we're feeling, justifiably, and the strength we'll need to muster to see us through. Along with the hope that we'll need to summon, because it's only hopeful voices, now, that have a chance of breaking through boundaries, of crossing the borders and being heard. That is our task, now; that is our responsibility: to find that hopeful voice, and let it be heard. Dignified but humb≤ understanding, at last, that we are not immune. That we are not too privileged to find ourselves outside; to be turned from us to them. NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: This book contains 4 essays on Brexit and its implications on UK and EU citizens alike. It is a very short book, and I have priced it as low as I could. I would obviously love for you to buy it and enjoy it, but I want you to know what you're getting! Please consider the Kindle version, which is priced much lower. Thank you.
