    No way. I think he's trying to make the British government look bad when they are forced to refuse it. Or to to deliberately question the assumption that the British Govt has absolute control over its citizens.

    Which actually begs the question could the British Government stop it?

    Is this for real? It sounds too good to be true (great for my husband who can't get an EU passport)... or will the EU want something from our government?

    EU negotiators will offer British people the chance to individually opt-in and remain EU citizens as a proposal in Brexit negotiations, the European Parliament’s chief negotiator has confirmed.

    The proposal, first revealed in its early stages by The Independent last month, was being considered as a long-term aim by the European Parliament – but has now been fast-tracked to the negotiating table by Guy Verhofstadt, who is in charge of thrashing out a post-Brexit deal.

    Mr Verhofstadt said the “very important” proposal had “captured the imagination and hopes” of many British people who wished to retain their rights as EU citizens and would be in his negotiating mandate.

    EU considers plan to let Brits opt-in to keep their EU citizenship
    The plan would see Brits offered individual “associate citizenship”, letting them keep free movement to live and work across the EU, as well as a vote in European Parliament elections.

    The proposal could potentially give Brits who live and work across borders a workaround to the disruption caused by the Leave vote – and young people looking to flee an increasingly isolated UK greater choice over where to move to.

    Depending on the approach taken by EU negotiators, the idea would likely be subject to approval by the British government.

    Mr Verhofstadt is drawing up a report with the European Parliament’s Committee on constitutional affairs about proposed long-term changes to the EU’s structure. The plan was originally proposed by liberal MP Charles Goerens for inclusion in the report, but will now bypass that process and be taken forward independently.

    The chief negotiator told the committee’s members: “We come to the vote of this important amendment 882, tabled by colleague Charles Goerens. It is an important amendment that has captured the imagination and hopes of many of the 48 per cent of Brits that have voted to remain in the EU. You will all have received many emails about this - and there has been many articles about this.

    It's not good when your partners are having bad times, but it goes both ways. To restore UK market, EU members need another multi-trillion market and vice-versa.
    If it were to made accurate, the mini would be about to drive off the cliff and Renzi would be plummeting out the back of the bus.

    Indeed, we want a positive outcome for both Britian and Europe, (Though many brexiteers seek the destruction of the EU) but as Tusk said, there will be no cakes for anyone, just salt and vinegar.

    Your going to get your masocistic Brexit so smurk away, but we will all be poorer for it. I bet you were one of the ones, just like your beloved newspapers banging the drums for war in Iraq in 2003. In ten years Brexiteers will be despised for what you have done, but of course by then everyone will claim to have voted to remain.
