Like many children, TNE reader John Pheby’s 8-year-old daughter has started to pick up information about the negative impact of Brexit.

“She is fully aware that she and her mother (a Hungarian citizen resident for years in the UK) are being disgracefully treated as ‘bargaining chips’ by the British government,” he says. “My daughter, who has lived in the UK for almost her whole life, is scared, and I believe her letter, vividly shows the damage the government is causing to the ‘three million’ and their families, friends, and employers.

“I have spoken to her regarding her choice of language for the final word, but I do think it to be an entirely appropriate description.

Transcript of the letter:

How will father Christmas come in the country?

I’ve got a papa from England and a mama from hungary so if Brexit happens wich I hope doesn’t I will have to choose one parent to live with and I’ve already been away from papa for half my life!

I am totally against Brexit Infinity persent!

Breakfast means Breakfast and brexit means POOP!
