You mean that Brits in Spain won't have EU rights neither ?

How can Brits ever be foreign ? Isn't the rest of the world foreign full of foreigners (= not British) ?
Brexit-world is very confusing ...

A career as a master criminal? Perhaps he can't be charged with a crime.

Maybe he'll find a dead end job somewhere. :lol:

Grandfathering rights happens regularly in UK law. All it means is continuing the same right s as previously held by certain sections when newer rules are brought in.

New arrivals from the end of the transition period would follow the same rules as British citizens.

On another note...

Didn't Blueboy suggest this previously?

The UK is considering opening its borders and abandoning all customs checks after Brexit

Now, that's "taking control" of borders...

Is it just my reading of it - or is that report very confused?

It's all confusing. But maybe this is clearer:

Brexit: PM accused of plan to 'throw open' borders

This one's amusing, though... "The garden of England". Right, then....

'No checks at border!' Transport Secretary's shock Brexit pledge sparks FURIOUS reaction | Daily Express

A Question Time audience member, which took place in Dover, asked: "Will the garden of England become the lorry park of England after Brexit?"

Mr Grayling confidently replied that the Government's solution to avoid potential lorry queue chaos is to implement a policy of "absolutely no border checks".

What a mess !

I sympathize emotionally with people who voted for Brexit, but as a practical matter everything being discussed shows a mess that hardly will be beneficial to Britain.

Reading that the way to solve difficult border questions is just to ignore them, as part of a Brexit that had a lot of support because of issues about the current border/immigration system, makes me wonder how many people who voted for Brexit would vote against it now.

I think some Leavers forget that EU free movement doesn't only apply to people.
