UK Citizens Coming To Terms With Brexit Implications
As the United Kingdom begins their negotiations regarding their decision to leave the European Union, there have been many concerns over the drawbacks of leaving. The rights of EU citizens to live, work and study in the UK may be affected in the next coming months, but in what way? European and Non-Europeans all want to know the answer to that and in the coming negotiations, citizens may start to get answers. One possible repercussion in regards to the rights of EU citizens to live in the UK is that many may not be able to stay for more than 90 days on a visitor or student’s visa; which may affect those who plan to study and work in the UK. Although, they are still permitting travel to and from the UK, those planning to live within the UK may face changes within their economy over the next several months. According to economy experts, imported goods will be rising in prices. Experts say that UK’s inflation figures as of March are rising at an alarming rate of 2.3%, much higher than last year. In the increasing months, living in the UK may become extremely expensive. Nonetheless, negotiations regarding these issues will take place after the UK’s election on June 8. In the meantime, the European Council President, Donald Tusks, calls on the UK to come up with a “serious response” to the possible repercussions during the negotiations.
