In conclusion, then, while not all panellists thought that restricting freedom of movement was necessarily a bad thing, on the whole the testimonies suggested that the prospect of losing current rights would represent a significant loss with serious practical, social, financial and emotional consequences, the latter summed up in the testimonies of Matt and John:

‘I totally love freedom of movement, it is one of the main obvious benefits that has come from being part of the EU, and I would be incredibly sad to lose it. I have made great friends in different parts of Europe and expect to continue to do so in the future. To have the ability to move around, work and form relationships with them restricted is a massive personal and emotional loss.’ (Matt in Germany). ‘Having something so basic, so fundamental, taken away is painful.’ (John in Belgium).
