Re: What about EU Expats?

So truth it may be and one that I agree we already knew, but it certainly doesn't clarify the position after Brexit that is for certain, which has yet to be decided upon by Europe.
I fully standby my statement in my previous post that Europe have yet to make plans as to what will happen to expats after Brexit, since it was mentioned by Sajid Javed in his statement to the House of Commons and also carried in several of the national dailies I believe.
In addition I standby my opinion that it's not a negotiation but a series of ultimatums from Europe on the basis of take it or leave it. It is impossible to carry on negotiations when only one side wish to negotiate.
I completely agree.
What is the point of us 'negotiating'? Any proposals put forward are, without exception, rejected by the EU.
This is because they see us as weak and, certainly with regard to our present leaders, we are.
So things will just drag on until one of two things happen.
Mrs Maybe will concede to the EU's demands and we shall be out in name only.
Or perhaps, just perhaps, she respects what she has said in the past: that "no deal is better than a bad deal", and we leave without any deal.
My suspicion is that, should that happen, we'll suddenly see all those hard-faced EU 'negotiators' coming back with some realistic suggestions!
