On June 23, 2016, the English voted by a narrow majority to leave the European Union: Brexit was no longer an idea but a reality which has just taken place 4 years after on December 31, 2020.
What is the impact of Brexit on the feeling of belonging to Europe? Do the English keep a European identity outside the European Union?
My 4 guests shared wir-th me memories, feeling and insights from this day and everything that followed:
- Sophie Legrand-Green, lives in London and was both surprised and upset by Brexit
- Tobias Latham, was born in Doncaster and is now living in Manchester, confused since Brexit
- Kylie Noble, Northern Irish, living in Doncaster who chose to take the Irish passport to continue to benefit from the European identity
- Luke Ambrose, who made the choice after college to leave the UK to live in Europe and continue to be European. You can suscribe to his newsletter the Odin project here.
