The constant state of limbo for the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union ensues, with Conservative MP Alberto Costa demanding that the UK government ask for a declaration from the EU that the status of EU citizens in the UK and British citizens in the EU will remain the same even if there is a no-deal Brexit.In a meeting that took place last Monday with Stephen Barclay, the UK Brexit Minister, Tory MP Costa called for protections to all citizens no matter what eventually happens with the Brexit outcome. This comes after the EU rejected the latest amendment to the UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal in February which aimed to secure citizens’ rights.At the time of the rejection, Mina Andreeva, who acts as the European Commission spokeswoman commented that the EU does not seek to “negotiate mini-deals”. This enforced the EU’s lingering frustration with the UK and further highlights the major differences between the PM Theresa … [Read more...] about UK and EU yet to decide on citizens’ rights
Uk and eu
European Union leaders have granted the UK a six-month extension to Brexit, after five hours of talks in Brussels. The new deadline - 31 October - averts the prospect of the UK having to leave the EU without a deal on Friday, as MPs are still deadlocked over a deal. European Council president Donald Tusk said his "message to British friends" was "please do not waste this time". Theresa May, who had wanted a shorter delay, said the UK would still aim to leave the EU as soon as possible. The UK must now hold European elections in May, or leave on 1 June without a deal. Prime Minister Mrs May had earlier told leaders she wanted to move the UK's exit date from this Friday to 30 June, with the option of leaving earlier if her withdrawal agreement was ratified by Parliament. Mr Tusk emerged from the talks - and a subsequent meeting with Mrs May - to address reporters at a news conference at 02:15 local time (01:15 BST). He said: "The course of action will be entirely in the UK's hands: They … [Read more...] about Brexit: UK and EU agree delay to 31 October

Europeans are facing billions of euros in income losses due to Brexit, a study by the German Bertelsmann Stiftung has found. A hard Brexit would hit citizens in both the EU and the United Kingdom particularly hard, resulting in €57.3 billion in income losses every year in the U.K. and €40.4 billion in the EU's remaining 27 member states. Germany alone would see annual income losses of €9.5 billion. France and Italy won't escape unscathed, either: The study expects €8 billion and €6 billion in annual income losses respectively for the two countries, making them the biggest losers after the U.K. and Germany. Yet a soft Brexit would cost Europe dearly too, although considerably less than a hard Brexit. In the U.K., income losses in case of a soft Brexit would amount to €32 billion a year, while the remaining EU countries would incur annual income losses of around €22 billion. For some countries outside the EU, however, Brexit is good news. … [Read more...] about Soft or hard, Brexit will cost UK and EU billions of euros: study
