Lib Dems: Britain’s Brexit position on expats has been shown to be ‘callous’

by Steve Beasant on 12 July, 2017

Commenting on EU’s Chief Negotiator Michel Barnier’s press conference today in Brussels, Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesperson Tom Brake said:

“Theresa May has created a callous level of uncertainty for British citizens currently resident in the EU.

“Instead of proposing mutually beneficial terms, May’s proposal has put the futures of millions of Brits across the continent in jeopardy by so-far refusing reciprocal arrangements.

“There is still time to reach an agreement which gives British citizens in Europe and EU citizens here in the UK continued rights. Anything less would be a failure by May to get the best possible deal.

“The only tune the Conservative party seem to be whistling to is the Orange Order.”
