Some quotes from the article -
"According to the British Ambassador in Budapest, soon there will be an agreement between London and Brussels on the rights of EU citizens living in the United Kingdom, including the Hungarians."

But they have been saying that since article 50 was triggered - this was supposed to be one of the easy 'quick to do' bits.

"Szabolcs Takács, Hungarian State Secretary for EU Affairs at the conference, said: "The withdrawal of Britain is a political and economic loss for the EU, the task is to minimize the resulting damage."

Yes - from the EU view point. How the UK ever thinks it can get a good deal on leaving I don't know.

When dear Boris came out in favour of leaving he said "We can leave the EU and then rejoin on better terms (for the UK)"

Oh yeah - right

Apparently the Ambassador held a "town hall" meeting about brexit at the Novotel in Buda on 22nd January (only just heard about it) - did anybody get to go or hear anything?

Probably!

I suppose I'll have to follow their Facebook page in future to find out about these things!

Thanks! I only live about a 100 metres from the Ambassador, perhaps I should knock on his door!

All still reliant fundamentally on whether any agreement with the current UK government is worth the paper it's printed on.

From my MP today, in response to my query -

Further to my last. The Government intends to carry on with the reimbursement of UK pensioners currently receiving healthcare through the S1 route. This is set out in paragraph 29 of the December phase one agreement between the EU and the UK Government:

Rules for healthcare, including the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) scheme, will follow Regulation (EC) No 883/2004. Persons whose competent state is the UK and are in the EU27 on the specified date (and vice versa) – whether on a temporary stay or resident – continue to be eligible for healthcare reimbursement, including under the EHIC scheme, as long as that stay, residence or treatment continues.

Regulation (EC) No 883/2004 covers the coordination of social security systems, and allows for the reimbursement of healthcare costs by the UK Government for citizens living in another EEA country or Switzerland in receipt of certain exportable benefits, including a retirement pension. There are some circumstances however where receipt of an exportable benefit will not entitle an individual to healthcare reimbursement, and will depend on the individual’s own circumstances.

It is worth bearing in mind that the withdrawal negotiations are proceeding on the basis that ‘nothing is agreed until everything is agreed’. So the above is all potentially subject to change unless and until the UK and EU negotiators reach agreement on all of the terms of the UK’s exit from the EU. A fuller discussion on the legal status of the phase 1 progress report can be found in the Commons Library briefing paper, Brexit: 'sufficient progress' to move to phase 2.

I hope this is helpful.

Yup, nothing new! I would have thought that the new "global Britain" would want its expats firmly on side (like in the good, old days of Empire )!

If you're not a millionaire from the Home Counties you count for nothing.

They're still blatently flailing around with nary a clue...............
