@The3Million #inLimbo
Many @The3Million are fully integrated in British society, often with British spouses, parents and/or children.

They have jobs, mortgages, businesses, families.

They have lives.

They can't just be 'turfed out'.

Nick Clegg's wife is Spanish.
Nigel Farage's children have German passports.

Which other UK politicians have parents, spouses and/or children that belong to @The3Million?

"It matters to communities across Ireland, it's hugely important to the Irish economy and especially the Northern Irish economy, and it's the main thing that's stopping us from getting a ttransition deal."

"It is not yet in agreed legal language although we have committed ourselves very clearly to maintaining full alignment with the customs union and the single market for Northern Ireland if we cannot find a deal."

A reminder that @The3Million and @BritishInEurope are not an amorphous mass of anonymous people that can simply 'go home' or 'come back'.

Every single #OneOfThe5Million has their own story.

Their family.
Their dreams.
Their rights.
Their identity.

Their life.
