Today, the word ‘freedom’ came up very powerfully in two jarring ways:

• Priti Patel, on behalf of the Home Office, celebrated the end of freedom of movement; and
• #EUandME chose The Shape: a short (4:30) film on freedom as one of its winners.

The Anti-Freedom side of the story

Here is Priti Patel celebrating the fact that 63 million of her compatriots are no longer free to live and work throughout the European Union.

The Pro-Freedom side of the story

And here is the very powerful film, The Shape, directed by Jaco Van Dormael. The film is inspired by, and quotes extensively from, a poem by Paul Eluard.
