MEPs for expats

MEPs urge EU leaders to protect rights of Britons living in Europe
A no-deal Brexit could put at risk up to 1 million UK citizens settled in other member states

British MEPs have called on EU leaders to urgently put in place a set of “continuity rights” for British nationals who may find themselves legally stranded on the continent in the event of no-deal Brexit.

They say the contingency plans that are under way are not enough and will risk the rights of up to 1 million Britons settled in EU member states.

The MEPs want them to have rights including ongoing inflation-linked pensions and healthcare rights, and residency and employment rights, such as so-called frontier worker rights that would allow British nationals living in one country to take a job or offer a service in another member state after Brexit.

A large number of MEPs are UKIP.  Perhaps they could have thought of this first....  :oki:
