    Brexit: Theresa May to fight EU transition residency plan.

    Post by papa_umau on Thu 01 Feb 2018, 12:15 pm

    Theresa May has indicated she will fight a proposal to give residency rights to EU citizens during the transition period after Brexit.

    She said there had to be a difference between those arriving after the UK leaves and those who came before.

    She also sought to reassure Tory MPs worried about the length of transition.

    The European Parliament's Brexit lead, Guy Verhofstadt, responded by telling The Guardian: "Citizens' rights during the transition is not negotiable."

    He said that "for the transition to work" there could not be "two sets of rights for EU citizens".

    Well Robsters, how do you feel about this latest idea of Theresa May ?

    I leave it as an open question without sticking my oar in first.

    By doing this she is trying to keep in with her pro-Brexit pals.

    She is so low in reputation as a Prime Minister that she is now clutching at straws.

    I guess that she is looking for such actions to try to placate tthe dissenters in her own party.

    I feel she is cutting off her nose to spite the country's face. We are going to need EU expertise in many fields in the future, especially in the sciences.

    What will happen to our involvement in the European Space Agency. Airbus industries, and so on?

    Yes, important connections like that are liable to be lost in any hard Brexit.

    I am sure that many of the people that voted "out" during the referendum are now thinking again.
