Another medium-term issue facing us is what conditions any incoming government will have have to face from the EU. The European Union Commission is running the show for the 27 – we all recognise that it is the unelected commissioners who both write the plays, create the puppets and pull the strings – no surprise then that they have issued two documents that lay out what they demand the UK settles first. Firstly the rights of EU and UK citizens living either in the UK or among the 27. The second concerns the ‘divorce settlement’. The latter to be paid in euros. Barnier has been warning MEPs to ensure that their domestic governments do not ‘let the UK get away with anything’. For your edification, we make these two documents available here.
