When Matt Hanley, Josh Posaner and I started to wonder about what the Brits in Berlin thought about Brexit we could not have quite imagined how much interest there would be in this issue. We’ve managed to build a super network of people, organised half a dozen events, built a website about voter registration, and ended up with a quantity and quality of press coverage about the issue that I could never have imagined. Here is a quick summary of the coverage so far!
