Greek Parliament votes on bill to protect rights of British citizens after Brexit

A bill was brought into Greek Parliament to protect the residence status and rights of current and future British citizens of Greece on Friday.

Greece’s Alternate Foreign Affairs Minister Miltiades Varvitsiotis brought forth the bill that collates all related legislation to coordinate aspects of Brexit related to Greece, regardless of whether a Brexit agreement is reached with the EU or not.

The bill:

* recognises the residency rights of British citizens and their family members who settled in Greece before the Brexit;
* establishes reciprocal social security and healthcare rates of British citizens in Greece;
* recognises British driving licenses;
* sets the provisions for the establishment and operation of tourism providers in Greece which are registered in the UK.

The bill in Greek is a long (and, as usual for Greek legal documents, typically boring!) read but it certainly seems to cover all the bases.  It can only be taken as positive that the Greek authorities have looked out for us who are permanently resident and/or working here and have safeguarded our EU rights, as the British authorities certainly haven't bothered to worry about.  I, for one, will never see Britain in the same light ever again.
