The absence of a visa when I cross the channel has symbolic value to me. I might not be in my house, but I'm still in my hometown." Rowling expressed concern that "racists and bigots" were directing parts of the Leave campaign.

How can we hope to conquer the enormous challenges of terrorism and climate change without cooperation and collaboration?"
