Lovely idea and I’ve signed the associated petitions to support it but I have a
feeling that the remaining EU states might vote it down because of the
refusal of the UK Government to assure the position of EU Citizens
presently resident in the UK. Even when those EU Citizens are prepared
to change their nationality, they are having obstacles placed in their
way which are against EU laws. This behaviour won’t help foster good
relations towards the UK or British Citizens and may cause this generous
idea to be crushed - even though it is for all ex EU States’ Citizens
and not just those from the UK.

Expat rights deal ‘may be close’
November 23, 2016
BRITAIN may be close to agreeing a deal on reciprocal rights for existing British expats in the EU and EU citizens in Britain, it is being claimed.

Some of the British national media today state that ‘senior government figures’ have reassured business leaders that only a few remaining EU states have yet to agree to allow expats to maintain the right to continue to live and work in their adopted countries after a Brexit.

This is said to be leading to speculation that a deal may be announced at a Brussels summit in December.

This comes as British Prime Minister Theresa May told a leading business organisation, the CBI, that she is hoping for ‘an early agreement on the status of UK nationals in Europe and EU nationals here’.

However a government source told The Telegraph that while they “hope and expect to guarantee the reciprocal rights of EU and British citizens”, it is “premature and wrong” to suggest certainty.

“No deals have been struck, formal or informal,” the source said.

The chairman of the British Community Committee of France, Christopher Chantrey, said: “This is good news for us all.”

What about Britts in Ireland?

… Did you know that Polish people represent the highest percentage of the foreign-born population in Norway? Or that the largest proportion of immigrants to the Republic of Ireland hail from the UK?

YES - without doubt even if I have to change my name, my nationality, my sex or anything else!

If you have been fiscally resident in the Republic of Ireland for more than four years, you can apply for Irish Nationality at a cost of 1200€ or you can obtain an Irish passport if one of your parents or grandparent were born on the island of Ireland.
