I wouldn't expect to live in another country unless my residence there was welcomed by the government of that country. I wouldn't expect them to be able to manage demand for public services without some element of control and I would expect them to prioritise their own citizens over me if there were any supply or availability issues. I would therefore expect to have to get a fixed term residence visa (X years or lifetime) before buying or renting a property in that country. That residence...

Right now the government has proposed that all EU citizens who have lived in the UK for the last five years will have the right to stay in the UK. However, I think students should be part of this plan. A student from the EU studying in the UK may have stayed 3(maybe 4) years for their undergraduate degree, and masters takes one (maybe 2) years. To ensure the next generation of thinkers is diverse, we should ensure that these students taught isn't the UK are given the option to stay. The more...

Not only would such a demand unlikely be accepted into by the EU, it would also be naive for the UK government to believe that UK citizens would voluntarily fulfill the lower skilled, lower waged roles of those taken up by EU citizens, thus proving the...

EU citizens who came to the UK, and UK citizens who went to other EU states, came on the basis that they would be able to settle permanently and we need to honour that.  EU citizens should definitely have the right to gain residence status if they have lived in the UK for a number of years, with the same allowed for UK citizens in EU states.

Britain and the EU countries should agree this at the same time. Whatever one gets, the other should also get. All the Europeans living in Britain now should be able to stay, as long as they are working and/or contributing to the real economy. Same for Brits living in the EU.
