Brexit isn't something that is just going to hurt some of us (badly) - everyone will be hit. After the slightly tongue-in-cheek references to #LoveIsland 2019 being held in Skeggy, the reality of post-Brexit travel costs & rights are being highlighted: 1/7…
But it is already too late. British run ski-based businesses are already making decisions for the season that starts soon and runs past 29 March, 2019. With all the noise over no-deal, they are taking drastic action. 2/7
Charles Owen, Managing Director of European Pubs Ltd said:
“After 14 years, I have made the painful decision to close 2 of our venues, Jacks Bar and Evolution in Meribel as our business model is no longer viable under any forms of Brexit outlined to date. 3/7
It’s impossible for me to wait until October to have the slightest idea of how I might be able to run these businesses and then have only 5 months to change or sell them.” 4/7
And what about the estimated 25,000 UK nationals working in the EU supporting the seasonal holiday industry whose jobs are at risk with any of the Brexit scenarios currently in prospect? 5/7
The loss of jobs will be predominantly amongst the young aged 18 – 24 who, a recent survey reveals, are the bulk of those employed in the sector. 60% of the companies surveyed run apprenticeships or training in the UK or the EU for their workers. 6/7
And then there are the UK nationals living in the EU who work between ski seasons in other EU countries and have done for years. Overnight, their way of life is destroyed. For them, October is also too late. In fact, October is too late for all of us living in limbo. 7/7

If the report in the Telegraph is true about the UK government “taking the moral high ground”, we are with the3million: this is two years too late. The time for taking the moral high ground was June 2016. 1/5
The UK should have made it clear from the beginning that the existing rights of EU citizens would be confirmed then – instead, the EU had to make a comprehensive offer on citizens’ rights first in May 2017 before the UK followed with an inferior counter offer in June 2017. 2/5
Also deeply disappointing that the language appears to be couched around the need for labour, and to avoid labour shortages, rather than welcoming EU27 as human beings who have made their lives in the UK and contributed to UK life in so many ways. But... 3/5

1. Here’s a thread for British businesses that deal with the EU

As the UK heads into trade talks with the EU next week, we’d like to share our experiences of being the subject of negotiations so that you know what to expect.
2. As far back as 2015, we were told not to worry, nothing bad would happen to us:…
3. Chair of Vote Leave, Gisela Stuart told us everything would be fine and she should know.

On #Article50 day here’s a reminder of how things stand re citizens’ rights and what’s been agreed for @britishineurope and @the3million

Last week the EU & the UK ‘signed off’ on Citizens Rights, stating that they will now be protected, a claim repeated today by @DavidDavisMP
2. While true for those who live and work or are retired in 1 country (e.g. France) and do not wish or need to move across the EU to live or for work, thousands of UK nationals in the EU27 will be deprived of their right to earn a living legally under the terms of the agreement.
3. Here are the main areas of agreement:

Let’s take an example of a Brit living in France. Broadly, what he or she can expect under the agreement are: confirmation of rights in France and the possibility to acquire permanent residence or whichever legal status replaces it.

⬇️ A thread on the Withdrawal Agreement (WA) and how it should be strengthened to protect the rights of 1.2 million @britishineurope. ⬇️
1. It is worth recalling that the stated aim of the Withdrawal Agreement (WA) was to ensure that nothing (repeat NOTHING) would change for EU27 nationals in the UK (EUinUK) and for UK nationals in the EU (UKinEU).
2. The European Parliament pointed out in December 17 that the Joint Report didn’t do enough to ensure this.
👉 WE AGREE to put it mildly.
