'The Bill cleared its final Parliamentary hurdle at 6.17pm when the House of Lords bowed to the will of the Commons, which had overturned every amendment by peers this week. After three years of high drama, which cost Theresa May her premiership and changed the political land- scape of Britain, the Brexit Bill was passed in a moment of silence as peers were asked if they were “content” or “not content”. With no one saying “not content”, the Bill was nodded through.'
No question, just a sigh of relief.

The point being, Tora, that it was the UK which prevented it, not the EU.
Article 50 did its best to ensure that a country could leave the EU without being stopped. Whatever other things it may have involved
You might care to look at the Soviet Union’s equivalent.
If you can find it.
Diddly. wher did you get the idea that EU nationals will have to apply for British Citizenship? Not true:-

yes the UK prevented it, but you conveniently omit that it was a VBQC commons majority. Not the choice of the government or the people. do you remember ich? a few months back?
I put my hands up to saying I made the mistake of saying citizenship when I meant settled status. I can see no problem with people who have lived here for years applying for a settled status.
No-one is going tp br deported so why the fuss over a few foreignersre
Brandon Lewis stated that anyone who hasn't registered by the deadline will be deported.He then waffled and wriggled saying his words had been taken out of context.
My husband recently dug out an old passport and stamped in it in 1990 is ...leave to remain in the UK indefinitely.We also found a letter from the Home Office confirming it but this isn't good enough for them and he still has to apply for settled status.And it's not just a few foreigners ,it's 3 million people.


//I can't believe that some of you leavers are so dim and short-sighted,...//

Then your belief is mistaken. The UK is simply reverting to the principles of a "normal" (i.e. non-EU) nation. Few nations that I know of allow unrestricted immigration from 27 other countries with a total population of around 450m. It's not a normal thing to do. Those who were short sighted and dim were perhaps those who believed that such a situation could prevail indefinitely.

It's unfortunate that some people who have lived here for a while under the EU's freedom of movement rules will have to complete some administrative tasks (hardly "jumping through hoops"). But it's not the end of the world and you cannot expect to live in a foreign country without recognising that their rules may change and that you will be subject to them.

Nobody that I know of who voted to leave did so with the aim of seeing those people who arrived here legitimately and in good faith under the prevailing rules thrown out. And there is not a cat in hell's chance that they will. But the rules have changed. The idea of Brexit was to see change (in all sorts of areas) not to simply carry on as before but with our name crossed off the list of members. They will have to get used to it or move to one of the remaining 27 EU countries.
I wish people would stop misunderstanding what I have said about EU nationals. So I shall repeat. None of my French, Dutch, German or Spanish friends want British citizenship which is a separate and different issue from "settled status". All they want is "settled status" in order to continue living and, in some cases, working here.
quite clear diddly, they want their cake and to eat it.
So they may sign up and all's well then ? No need for a fuss ?

Nobody's misunderstanding you. I understand perfectly. What you (and they) must now understand is that the rules have changed. Stuff happens.
Well said New Judge ^
The rules have changed also for British Nationals living in E.U. countries. This is what happens with a change of any sort. British Nationals will doubtless have to apply for some sort of 'permit of residency'. It's not a big deal unless anyone makes it so. Having lived abroad (in France) there were all sorts of registrations I had to go through - it's normal.
