Subject: RE: BS: To Br/Exit Or Not To Br/Exit
Watching the news today, it appears that Juncker is calling for the rest of the EU to take a hard line against UK.

We should not even think of invoking article 50 until there are terms on the table that 100% protect the rights of UK citizens for freedom to live, move, work across the EU, AND VICE VERSA, for continued access to the single market to protect present and future jobs in the UK, 100% guarantee that there will be no trade tariffs, ever, that the interests of the people of the UK be consulted on all future EU decisions. Once all this is in place, then, and only then should we start any formal process.

I am currently an EU member, and I am disgusted that I am not being represented in the talks the rest of the EU are having, especially as this will have an impact on the rest of my life.

Also, any agreement must include UK continuing to pay into EU to ensure that it continues its work in leveling the playing field for the less prosperous states.

The agreement must also bind the UK to pick up the tab for EU's contribution of development and structural funding etc to be spent according to EU rules.
