No, ending genuine friendships over Brexit seems a bit extreme, but at the same time as an EU national who wants to make a life in the UK, I can't help but take it a bit  personal, and maybe reassess the kind of friendship I'm in. Now if this was a romantic partner things would look a bit different, and offence would very much be taken!

The whole point of Brexit is to change the rights of both EU and UK nationals, both inside of the UK and in other European countries - including their right to move and reside freely. Now, what these rights will look like, are at the moment unknown, but we can defiantly expect peoples movement to be restricted and this includes the right to study, which might in the future require EU nationals to pay international tuition fees in the UK, and the same for British citizens in other European...

It seems more sensible to either have soft borders, or no reinforced borders at all, as UK businesses will be affected, particularly between The Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Unfortunately the UK should to pay up, in order to minimize for potential fall out with the EU. Beyond this the negotiations can't really proceed on to a final stage of divorce without the UK paying money it owes back to the EU. Maybe they should get going with the payment plan sooner rather then later to get it over with? Or take their sweet time, and make the process a long winded one, so negotiations go on for longer and EU nationals manage to get to the 5 year mark for permanent residency!

The aim of the negotiations should be to foremost respect the fact that a referendum has taken place, and that the people have voted out. It should however be a negotiation that is representative of the whole population of the UK including EU nationals living in the country and UK nationals living in other EU states. In order to reach a divorce that is as painless as possible. This includes both the people who voted out and those who voted in.

One might need a special court after the divorce to settle particular disputes that relate to both EU nationals living in the UK, and UK nationals living in the rest of the EU in order to uphold what has been agreed upon after the divorce.  It could here become useful to have a court that is impartial to the needs and wants of the EU and UK, that infringes as little as possible on British sovereignty but at the same time protects EU nationals within its territory. It is however worth...
