9:53 am
something new so it's just you know i just never know what to expect and i still don't know what the outcome is just a false 1st then you know around the world so it's a pretty pretty scary wish to be sure of thank you for your. blog my angle our experience from a cafe in cambridge she normally likes giving restaurant temps but she can't escape the ever present breaks it calles at the end of the day we called british passport just like any other british citizen and i would hope that the pause that be will make sure that all $100.00 stars are represented we are not supposed to be any less than any other businesses then you know we're supposed to be employed at the very same rate as they are the biggest things and. she wishes her island would receive the same kind of attention that island and northern ireland have throughout the breaks it negotiations hard e.u.
9:54 am
border would be just as much of a catastrophe for her and her family and williams. husband is studying in cambridge she will be spending 2 years here with him and their son. hi. i'm from and i learned called angle that so actually i'm a blog that. and i'm just doing some research on the fact you know bricks that might affect a country like i do you haven't a thought that there's been that not even a consideration of the fact that there's a united kingdom that you have to represent correct that if there's diverse interests or between the skull of it's not certain but in business certain so when you have that arrogance it doesn't surprise me that they wouldn't consider what the channel islands feels would guernsey feels what feels right to venice that i think we should have left the because apparently trade is going to be way more expensive than most people in england when you go to that to get like foreign people out of
9:55 am
the country but most the time they say oh they're taken on jobs or whatever but it's been this they're not lazy like most british people and that you do their work and they i don't know i think is a bad idea we should have that and not people trying to say that we should take it but again. there are too many students in the city for cambridge to reflect the average english view in 2 years when her husband has finished his studies she leaves here and the family will return to angola. feels homesick whenever she sees fish at the market. i don't know if there is a week that goes by when i don't think gosh i would love to have lobster or some kong cousins now or you know so i definitely miss the people for me. whether it's asian proms or classic british fish and chips for seafood available here is
9:56 am
not much of a consolation. even though there was a time when fishing was as important as tourism is today. the good and good i mean ill and italian and refers to the shape of the island according to surveys around 90 percent of residents would have voted remain. as a child of the day i consider a lot of attention and keep your children your child bad with. the other tone from others. when former british prime minister david cameron called the bronx it referendum he spared no thoughts of british caribbean fisherman. if you lose the password we can go to. i let you have to get a visa. to the proper care of the world. so the past was important to us ok so marty good reason but it was even more so because of alter was
9:57 am
a. situation similar to zohan the tour was getting 20 below and if it goes terribly wrong that 2 could be could be impacted negatively. and could go bankrupt without tourism it's like the island's life line borders and trade barriers may sound abstract but a passport is something quite real. this is my your premium passport this document here allows you to europe around the world and this document is valuable very valuable to the people of a world i cannot imagine the the whole life will be without this document you know once we exit will be a pretty new year i don't know what will please the document and it's done so into
9:58 am
the most it will freeze today. t.j. hammer i won't tire of reporting on developments in the united kingdom he wants to illustrate the consequences of leaving the hero. breaks a deal would not be good for for us at all in angola and of course the other british overseas territories as well so for some here the morning we are just about $830.00 that's the time here this morning. and we will know cause of for these are the last words. the breaks it has been postponed until the end of october 29th teen it's unlikely that the concerns of british overseas territories will be heard by family meanwhile anglin 6000 kilometers away from britain can only wait and see.
