Sweden is embarking on a bus tour of the UK to reassure its 100,000 expatriates and British-based Swedish businesses worried about the threats posed by a hard Brexit. Torbjörn Sohlström, the Swedish ambassador to the UK, said thousands of Swedes in the UK were concerned about their future right to remain in the UK. He said the UK-wide bus trip was as much about trying to reassure Swedish businesses as it was Swedish people living in the UK. They [Swedes in the UK] have built their lives here, been very successful and they make a real contribution,” he said. The Swedish “reassurance tour” will also visit Edinburgh, Glasgow, Cardiff and Manchester.
