    Default Brexit DOOM™: European parliament will veto Brexit deal with early cut-off date for

    "European parliament will veto Brexit deal with early cut-off date for free movement

    The European parliament will veto any Brexit deal that prevents EU citizens who move to the UK during the next two years from having the same rights to live and work in Britain as those already in the country.

    The EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, and MEPs are understood to be concerned by reports that the British government wants 29 March, when it officially notifies the EU of its intention to leave, to be the “cut-off date” for the free movement of people.

    It has been repeatedly reported that the British government believes that 29 March 2017 is the appropriate date after which EU nationals moving to the UK would have rights different from those already in the country, although government officials say publicly that that is a matter for the negotiations.

    Even the Mail can only postpone reality for so long

    Hard Brexit now!

    So those of you who sheepishly hung on every word that the Grauniad reported are now hanging on the words of the Mail?

    The Daily Mail is a very pro-European paper...

    The European parliament could veto but doesn't have power over this and the cold war begins.

    But how people feel and what actually happens are two different things. Given that nothing material will change in the next three months ( or more likely the next 24 - 36 months ) I'll be looking out for the DailyWail article in May that proclaims that confidence has bounced back.

    But more importantly. How does one notify the EU that the UK is invoking A50? Can the PM just send a text?
