Brexit deal fails five million people

brexitLenthe3million and British in Europe agreed to make a joint statement about the failed Brexit deal between the UK and the EU:

Citizens’ rights groups the3million and British in Europe have reacted with anger and disappointment after the Brexit negotiators failed to deliver their promise to agree a deal that would allow people to carry on living their lives in exactly the same manner as before Brexit.

Despite good progress at the early stage of the negotiations, the talks stalled when the focus switched to the Irish border, with crucial issues such as freedom of movement for British citizens in Europe and lifelong rights to return remaining unsolved in the agreement presented by Theresa May last night.

Key concerns that have not been met:

- British in Europe

- losing free movement, which our members rely on for work and family.

- 3.6 million EU citizens living in the UK have to pay to apply to stay in their home, will undergo systematic criminality checks and can lose the new status if family or work obligations mean they have to leave the country for five years.

Chair of the3million Nicolas Hatton said, “the3million feels betrayed by the Brexit negotiators. Despite early progress in the negotiations, over three million EU citizens in the UK, including 700,000 EU children, are now facing a lifelong limbo under the Withdrawal Agreement.

"We are still bargaining chips, as the negotiators will soon discuss the future relationship, with our lives still in the balance. As a reminder, the Withdrawal Agreement does not protect our existing rights, and shamefully creates more insecurity by allowing the Home Office to pick and choose the EU citizens they want to keep.”

Jane Golding, Co-Chair of British in Europe said, “We were told in March that citizens’ rights were a done deal and that discussions on this would not be re-opened. However it is clear from the text that some changes have in fact been made, meaning that it is unacceptable and upsetting that free movement – a lifeline for many of us - has been excluded when both sides knew it was critical for us.

"Brexit Secretaries come and Brexit Secretaries go. But unlike Dominic Raab our members don't have the luxury of walking away from this mess. His resignation only adds to the uncertainty that millions of people have been experiencing for two years. It is now up to the European Parliament, not only to walk the talk on its red lines – free movement in our case – but to put pressure on all sides to ring-fence the agreement on citizens’ rights so that 4.6 million people can sleep at night now whatever happens on Brexit."

Quoting maria valentina Umer:
The Editor of this tabloid doesn´t deserve the name. He publishes comments without sources. His credentials and contacts are not even given in this tabloid´s website. And asking for such meets with no response. British tabloids, in print or online, are the scum of British jourlalism -- if there is yet such a term in Britain. This tabloid only proves the scum that has become of British reporting. I don´t even call it journalism. The Editor of this tabloid is a non-entity, worse than the Editor of the Algarve Resident, presumably now defunct. But Brexit will do away with these tabloids in the Algarve, for their readers will slowly return to good old Britain or die in the Algarve.
The era of British retirees in the Algarve is over, and so is the gammut of real-estate, tax consultants and other services geared to British retirees. They know they can´t continue living high-life in southern shores after Brexit. Blame themselves. A flourishing UK awaits them!!!!!!! God save the Queen. That is, if she still can keep her UK together.


Wonderful stuff, do keep them coming!
