The EU arguments become ever more ludicrous and laughable by the day. All they demonstrate is an EU in desperation crisis mode, as the reality dawns on the Brussels buffoons that they are losing the UK's major contributions and will have to cut back on their budgets as a matter of extreme urgency. The follow-on from that is that they are gong to have to admit to the other 27 member countries that the spending on their projects is going to diminish dramatically. The days of their Champagne Socialism are over, and not before time.

It's beginning to feel like the parties of opposition are wanting to have everything exactly as it was before the referendum but Parliament will agree that we are no longer members.

And having given rights of residency to EU citizens already here (and yet to arrive?) what would they do if (when?) the EU tells UK citizens to bugger off back home?

I can see the argument, but do not accept it. There is I think a clear moral duty to the people we have here. We should do what we now can to satisfy that duty.

That said, the question is a lot more complex. The EU have suggested that any EU nationals remaining here should remain subject to regulation and protection of the European Court of Justice. Sorry, No.

What would happen if we didn't uphold their rights just as an example.

The EU talks a load of endless, mindless crap.

The existing rights disappear when the UK leaves the EU. The UK Premier has made it absolutely clear that the UK is leaving the EU - lock, stock and barrel.
