    Breaking News, ECJ, 7.02.2020 C-789/19 P: "The Court has not explicitly established a link between the withdrawal of a Member State from the Union and the loss of the status of citizen of the Union for nationals of that Member State" : as a result, everything is still possible !!

    Interesting.

    What benefits do those of us on here see about still having EU citizen ship. (with the obvious exception of the 0.0005% of the population who may actually work outside of the UK and in one of the 27 member states of the EU)

    Just asking.

    You can go to Spain without having to pay the £11.50 for a visa?!

    and...

    How much do you think the Spanish will like restrictions on something which provides 12% of their employment and 11% of their GDP?

    Do you think their entire tourism industry is Brian and Joan from Essex?

    I doubt it's just those two that are propping up Spain's economy to the tune of €14Bn per year.

    Of course not, that would be ridiculous, sometimes Terry goes too

    Well no of course not - approx 24% of tourists to Spain are from the UK (Tourism in Spain - Wikipedia)

    Would you be happy to take a 25% pay cut?

    For absolutely no reason?

    Maybe, just maybe, those 24% might be replaced by people from other countries who don't want to go there because of Brian and Joan (and sometimes Terry) from Essex but will once they no longer decide to go there...
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
