I have already written this morning of a sense of hopeless, powerless poverty in the UK. There are current trends which can only make this worse. Mass forced migration into and out if the UK is one.
It is shocking when the Guardian reports this morning that:
EU nationals living in Britain should make a file of documents that prove they have lived in the country since before the June referendum, according to the chair of a House of Lords committee.
Helena Kennedy QC suggested collecting together bills, rental or home ownership documents, employment paperwork, or evidence of appointments for those who do not have jobs.
And if this is relevant here it is equally relevant for UK citizens living in the EU. Brexit is creating the risk of massive enforced migration. Little creates hopeless, powerless poverty more effectively than that.
