    British people living in the European Union could lose the right to live in another EU member state after Brexit, it emerged at the end of talks in Brussels.

    British officials raised the issue with their European counterparts during three-and-a-half days of intense technical talks. The EU made clear it would not move without a reciprocal offer for European nationals living in Britain that would allow them to move to another EU country and return to the UK.

    Yawn.

    Sure that things will work out OK, despite what the Guardian waffles on about.

    They might lose the right, but not the opportunity. British people have lived all over Europe well before the Eurocrats graciously bestowed it upon us as a right.

    Britain will never leave the EU anyway. Brexit will fail.***

    ***The above is my own opinion. Not much that could be said will change that, nor do I expect to change your own views. Let's all just wait and see.

    There are also 10,s of thousands of Brits currently residing in Europe under free movement who wont be able to return to the UK with their Non EU Spouses lets hope there host country of choice works out once SS is no longer accepted

    I'd be over the moon if they told me I couldn't return to England with my wife. It would give me just the excuse I need. I could apply for asylum somewhere - anywhere else than cold, rainy, miserable Britain

    Several over-looked issues here:
    • Freedom of Movement to/from UK is set to continue for at least 5 years post-Brexit - according to our chief negotiator.
    • The EU will have to give reciprocal rights to Britons in EU in exchange for those EU27 citizens in UK.
    • Families with young children who are British citizens may have additional rights under Human Rights legislation.
    • A one-off limited period "amnesty" is, I'm told, being considered which would allow non-EU spouses to accompany their British partners and children to UK, should they wish to do so.
    • Brexit may not happen.

    The cureent position is that returning Brits are running into "insufficient CoL" and "Circumvention of UK Rules" Refusals of a Residence Card where does your amnesty info come from? Link?

    I'd like to see them try that one with us. I've lived in Spain since 2004, my wife since May 2016 - Brexit is not possible before the end of March 2019, by which time Melody will have lived here for three years and me for fifteen.

    Other than Spain just where they could assume our Centre of Life to be would be interesting. And I never knew anyone whose stay in Spain exceeded the minimum requirement by some 2900% to be accused of Circumventing the UK Rules. At least in my case, they are going to have a difficult job convincing a sane judge that I'm fiddling the system.

    So, problem one solved. Just where to live and what the f**k to do with our lives, after having been expectorated onto British soil from our home in Spain.

    I have an equally hard one for them to challenge since we were in our host country before the rule change on income and there for 18 months but they still forced me to appeal and win in the tribunal

    It is extremely unlikely that Britons will loose that right, in the media it is all scaremongering - the stuff that sells newspapers.
