I wrote this to a friend a cross the pond, not really a nice “How are you and we are grand” email. Hope you lot is doing well, while the virus is spiralling out of control in the US. The… Continue Reading →

Great news

Today we were told that the poorest areas of England and Wales hit hardest by Covid-19 and Britain’s GDP falls by record 20.4% in April as economy is paralysed by lockdown and UK ‘formally confirms’ to EU that it won’t… Continue Reading →

Hope Not Hate

Hope Not Hate have done some fantastic work over the years and you should support them if you can. Yes, I know its been around for years, but at least in the past we have had politicians, news papers etc… Continue Reading →

Got the point?

So it is getting to close to me, most of the people I have meet here who have worked, paid taxes and become brilliant friends and addition to the UK. None of us would have been able to pass the… Continue Reading →

Please read!

This is the Settled Status Survey Report that the wonderful Prof Tanja Bueltmann (@cliodiaspora) and The 3 Million (@the3million) and others, wrote up about applying for Settle Status and living in the UK/EU after the referendum in 2016. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1gYRREyjC1LW9Mk4fReeS848kHbtPK2ao/view and… Continue Reading →

Black dog

Never really been visited by the black dog. Yes, I have been down and sad, but it’s been because of death or other bad news and surprisingly these have been short and mild periods compared to this. I think the… Continue Reading →


Call 116 123 for free (UK)Yesterday I called the Samaritans, not to get help* but to thank them for their great work, I could throw £££ at them but it will mean nothing to me, but I will throw £££… Continue Reading →

Don’t live here anymore

Well that is it, I don’t live here anymore. I just exist/visit/part time or what ever you can call it. Yes, there is a few pints in me this evening. But the country I loved to live in and called… Continue Reading →


I know I don’t often write/rant here anymore, but that is because the whole Brexit thing is just so bad, every day something worse, more lies comes out. But today was a right old blow to the gut after nearly… Continue Reading →

Are you ok with this?

https://twitter.com/MikeStuchbery_/status/1170378258275287042?s=20 I for one fucking ain’t! That is one of the few I have seen from today. I makes me sick to the core and scares me shitless

Our future …

I have read/heard in/on newspapers/podcast that there is talk about Tory + Brexit Party deal.  I have felt since people first started to talk about having another referendum vote, that the stay in the EU has a good chance of… Continue Reading →

Rejoice ?

Well we just passed the first deadline for Brexit, 23.00 on 29.03.19. Though I really don’t know if I should be cheerful or continue the depression. I saw many tweets by people saying something along the lines of “Happy non… Continue Reading →

50 days

Scared, depressed, pissed off. Still not a clue to what our future will be. This is going to be fun … In the last 25 year I have been … self employed, travelled, PAYE, sick, not claimed, in rentals without… Continue Reading →


Erasmus technical notice published today reveals government does not intend to fund any new student exchange projects after brexit in the event of a no deal: that means there could be no funding to support study abroad for 2019 and… Continue Reading →

Saw RED!

Last night I saw RED, just pure rage. For nearly 935 days the gov.uk, with Mayhem and her loons, have ignored and not agreed to speak to the wonderful people that is #InLimbo (ourbrexitblog.org) and #the3million (the3million.org.uk) and others about… Continue Reading →

900 days

So I “celebrated” 900 days in limbo with yet another sleepless night. Thanks to the way that Mayhem runs this country (to the ground).  I was hoping that there would be a vote today in the Parliament and that would… Continue Reading →


A friend said this the other day “I know no-one really cares, but I am there. Hidden behind one of those EU flags in the background.”  Come and have a chat when you’ve finished on Sky @IanDunt pic.twitter.com/zwM2ifRrD0 — Steve… Continue Reading →

The future …

The best thing I can hope for the future is that Brexit is cancelled and we can go back to “normal”. Sadly we all know that the last 2.5 years have done some serious damage to the UK with families (luckily… Continue Reading →

Some words from my British wife

It’s 2am and my husband has just got home. He marched on the 20th October with our friends in London for a People’s Vote on Brexit with option to remain.  He didn’t have a vote in 2016 as he is Danish,… Continue Reading →

Hello me again …

… remember Monday soooo far back in history that we have nearly forgotten that it ever happened. You might remember it as a day, that I was happy and full of hope for the first time in over 830’ish days…. Continue Reading →
