We got some very exciting news today. The home office emailed us to say:
I’m sorry, Britain, but this means you’re now stuck with us!
I love living in the UK. I always have. As a 20-year-old I came here on a young person’s working holiday visa and I knew then that I wanted to make it my permanent home. This was despite being broke and not even owning a coat. I flew to London in winter without a coat. I still can’t believe it. I froze but I loved it.
I love the landscapes, the climate, the history, the culture, the people. I’m sorry I’m sometimes opinionated and complain about things – like lack of cycling infrastructure – but that’s just because I want to make the world a better place. I’m very glad they don’t reject applications from people who go to protest marches but that’s one of the things I love about this country. I’m free to think and say whatever I want. It’s the best place in the world to be vegan. The people say sorry even when they do nothing wrong. British TV is the best in the world. And who doesn’t love Pret A Manger and Marks & Spencer?
