Angus McC.’s Story

by Angus McC., Aberdeenshire

I haven’t seen any direct reference to those of us who are married to or partnered with loved ones from other European countries. My wife has lived and worked in Scotland for nearly 15 years. A professional who works for a local government service. I work for a charity. We don’t know what my wife’s status will be after Brexit. She may be asked to leave. If she is then I will be going too. Fantastic! Two job vacancies for UK residents. And off we go with our combined knowledge, experience, skills and understanding of local issues totalling 60 years. Don’t know where we will end up. Life might be harder. But if my wife is not wanted then neither am I. For the first time since the poll tax boycott I have hesitated to fill in the electoral register return. Why? Because it asks me to confirm the nationality of my wife. Will that information be used by the state, your state, to identify aliens? I’m scared. This is scary stuff folks. We don’t want to leave you. But we may not have that luxury that we have all enjoyed since freedom of movement accross Europe came into being . I know I will not be the only partner in this situation. If you or anyone you know is, then please put them in touch with me. The unseen collateral. It’s time we had our voices heard. To the two folk that get our jobs: I hope you enjoy serving our communities as much as we have, that you have a long, peaceful and prosperous life. And that you are never rejected by the country you love.
