    Negotiator to offer Brits individual membership of the EU.

    EU negotiators will offer Brits an individual opt-in to remain EU citizens, chief negotiator confirms.

    Guy Verhofstadt has fast-tracked the plan and will include it in his mandate.

    EU negotiators will offer British people the chance to individually opt-in and remain EU citizens as a proposal in Brexit negotiations, the European Parliament’s chief negotiator has confirmed.

    The plan, first revealed in its early stages by The Independent last month, was being considered as a long-term aim by the European Parliament – but has now been fast-tracked to the negotiating table by Guy Verhofstadt, who is in charge of thrashing out a post-Brexit deal.

    While this is very interesting, I have no clue about how that could work for British individuals after Brexit.

    Sounds like a crazy idea to me.

    If this has not been put into law in Westminster I cannot see any unilateral actions like this being legal.

    Although the remainers will like the idea, I think we would have to give up our UK citizenship to individually join with the EU after Bexit.

    Guy Verhofstadt is just stirring it by this suggestion.

    I honestly cannot see this ever getting onto the statute books.
