As Requested [machine translation]:
"Brexit: English and Ceretane for 13 years, she is afraid of losing everything
Justine, originally from England, decided to live in the Pyrénées-Orientales in 2006 with her husband and two daughters. Brexit worries him.
Justine and her family have been adopted by Céret for 13 years now. However, this Catalan heart is afraid that everything will change from March 29. Henceforth, it does not matter to have friends, house, CDI, life in the Pyrenees-Orientales when you have Jane Birkin's accent. Because yes, Justine was born in England. "I arrived in 2006 and I will eventually have to apply for a residence permit, " she laments.

The adoptive Cerétane, professor of English (of course!) In Perpignan is particularly affected by the consequences of Brexit. An exit from the European Union that she has obviously never wanted. "It's a disaster," she says.

When she arrives in 2006 under the Catalan sky, Justine sends her two daughters to study at the French school. Although they are pure products of the National Education tricolor, they too will have to embark on administrative procedures to stay in France. "We have no choice but to apply for dual nationality. This is the only way to secure the life of our family here in Céret. We love our life in France. And I know that my daughters also feel very European. "

The referendum lived "like a shock"
In addition to the verdict of the referendum lived "as a shock" , Justine confides also feel some fears about future formalities to achieve to stay in the Pyrenees-Orientales. "We are not very well informed, all this is pretty vague. We do not really know what will happen. " Definitely, this divorce is far from being agreed by all. Is not it?

Diane Sabouraud"

Yours,
Ted & Jemima

Is it not possible to just cut & paste the article? Computer translations are always rubbish.

I would normally sympathise (a tiny bit). But if she has managed to affect the same accent as Jane Birkin for 13 years, I’m in two minds.

I think you are maybe missing the point of reading things in translation. I’ve read much worse attempts done by humans.
