I WRITE THIS as a citizen of Europe. By the time you read it I will have been reduced, by no choice of my own, to a disregarded, discounted, disrespected cipher inhabiting the northern outpost of a British state that is vastly more alien to me than any European country.

Not that I was particularly or overtly proud of the European citizenship that I must learn to write and speak of in the past tense - along with freedom of movement, consumer protections, employment rights and much else. I was never one for flaunting a European flag or badge. But I was content with being a citizen of Europe. I’m not at all proud of the television in the corner of the room or the toaster in the kitchen. But I’d be bloody annoyed if I was robbed of them in the same way as I’m being robbed of my European citizenship. TVs and toasters can be replaced. What can replace my status as a European citizen?
