We’re leaving you, they say. But we won’t be leaving what we have together – we’ve come too far and we’re far too fond of you. What we will leave, though, is a promise to you. We’ll leave space in our hearts and at our tables. Our workplaces and our universities will be open to you always. You will always find warmth on our shores – but I’d still bring a jacket!
But, most of all, you’ll find us right here with you as we heal our planet and strive for a future that is fairer to all - because old friends, we don’t forget. And as long as Scotland is still here, Europe, you are always welcome.
