Brexit has ‘dehumanised’ people into categories, says Lloyds’ Dijkstra
Brexit has “dehumanised” some groups in society Esther Dijkstra, director of strategic partnerships at Lloyds Bank, has said.

The Netherlands native said while the overall UK housing market had “shown a resilience” during the political uncertainty, the sector should not underestimate the impact it had had on individuals. 

Speaking at the Big Lender Panel at the Financial Services Expo in London, Dijkstra (pictured) said the discussions around the UK’s exit had led to a breakdown in the way people were categorised. 

“We all now label people as EU citizens, UK citizens, non-EU citizens. Before it was two groups and now you’ve made it three. I do think there’s an impact on quite a lot of people,” Dijkstra said. 

As for the wider housing market, she added that builders would “definitely feel” the effect of Brexit and predicted it would have an impact on building rates.
