Two years ago, we were both devastated by the symbolism of the Brexit referendum. We are now determined to do our bit in the fight against the forces of isolationism – against the whole concept of Brexit and its unsavoury implications for people like us.
We have always believed that to be a Citizen of the World was a good thing. Being interested in different cultures and languages, being at ease in other countries, tolerating differences as well as celebrating the best that various national identities had to offer, creates a greater common understanding. We reject the idea that to be a citizen of the world is a matter of class or a mark of elitism, and we reject the idea that the Britain of the 21st century can be a place where it is a dirty word.
If you feel the same, please follow our updates and please do get in touch and tell us your stories, and help us change the narrative from backward-looking and nativist to a grown-up discussion about how we can all live together without rancour.
