farewells by British MEPs to the European Parliament

For British environmentalist Ellie Chowns, there is no question of leaving Brussels gloomy. To avoid packing up with a heavy heart and a low head, it organized an evening not far from the European Parliament, Thursday 30 January, the day after the ratification of the withdrawal agreement and the day before the official exit from the United Kingdom. United. Live music, dance and laughter to forget the divorce that pro-Europeans see as “a historical error”.

73 British parliamentarians leave Parliament

His centrist colleague Chris Davies does not just fill his moving boxes. In his office, he watches them with a bleak eye. “ I can’t get used to the idea of ​​leaving Concedes the one who was elected in 1999. In total, 73 British parliamentarians leave Parliament, accompanied by their teams (often two or three people per deputy, many of whom have not yet found one. employment).

With them, the other deputies – those who remain – take tweezers. Do not be too dramatic at the risk of causing fits of tears. But neither should we appear too distant, at the risk of appearing indifferent. Since the start of January, Pierre Karleskind, a member of La République en Marche (LREM), has not dared to wish a happy new year to anyone with British nationality. ” It would have sounded so wrong “, Says the oceanographer.

In institutions, lines are formed in front of British flags to make a last “selfie” before they are removed. The Union jack will find its place in a window of the House of European History.

Czech curator Jitka Mlsová Chmelíková has asked British MPs to give her other Brexit items. “ I would like to find banners that were used during the demonstrations or puppets of Theresa May, like those that we saw at the time of Margaret Thatcher “Explains the historian.

MEPs are heavy-hearted

Many in Parliament hope for the return of the British. One evening, a few days before Brexit, the Greens found themselves on the steps of the institution. They all held a candle in their hands, thus lighting the Brussels night. ” We will leave a light on », They promised. They will leave a light on so that their colleagues, but also all British citizens, can find their way back to them, so that they can resume their place in Europe. But for the time being, in Brussels, despite all the efforts to make this break less painful, all MEPs (except those from the Brexit party) have tears in their eyes.
