“If the rights of EU citizens now in the UK can be guaranteed, then I think we can look at some form of emergency brake…”
Dutch MEP Hans van Baalen.
Plans to allow the United Kingdom an exemption from EU rules on freedom of movement for up to seven years while retaining access to the single market are being considered in European capitals as part of a potential deal on Brexit.
Britain’s decision to leave the EU has led to a “dramatic deterioration” in economic activity, not seen since the aftermath of the financial crisis.
Data from Markit’s Purchasing Manager’s Index, or PMI, shows a fall to 47.7 in July, the lowest level since April in 2009

David Cameron’s government committed an act of gross negligence and deepened the uncertainty surrounding the impact of Brexit by instructing Whitehall not to make any contingency plans for a vote to leave the EU, parliament’s foreign affairs select committee has said.
There has been no clear plan given as to how our removal from the EU will affect our fellow Brits living in the UK never mind the ex-pats and some of us weren’t even entitled to vote so rightfully feel somewhat overlooked.Please keep your questions coming.
These are some of our top questions so far:
? Are we going to be made to leave?
? Will we need a new passport?
? Will we need a new driving license?
? Are we going to be asked to pay for public services, including healthcare?
? Will our pensions be index-linked?
? Are our Spanish pensions safe?
? Will our children still be entitled to state education?
? Will our pets be affected and need new passports?
BREXPATS IN SPAIN needs to hear from you. As ONE VOICE we can take those questions to the governments and get those answers!
BREXPATS IN SPAIN plans to meet on a regular basis at a convenient venue and time. Our first meeting is on Wednesday 27 July at 7pm at the Tamisa Golf Hotel. We welcome all fellow expats to come along and, over a glass of wine and tapas, raise your concerns and meet some of our experts. There are obviously no answers yet but we do need your questions!
Membership will be free because we are a non-profit making association supported by local government and in the throes of being fully legalised.
We will update with Brexit developments via a regular newsletter, by email and on Facebook.
