Thread: The U.K. Govt. confirmed what was suspected (and what the @ukhomeoffice have hinted at in private talks) that, in the event of a no-deal #Brexit, free movement will end on 29/03/2019. For #EUcitizens arriving after this date, they face a new temporary system.
The Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill, once enacted, will repeal the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2016, which currently implement free movement in UK law.
This system will be a temporary transitional system running from 30/03/2019 and until 31/12/2020, to give the U.K. Govt. time to implement the new immigration system on 01/01/2021.

1/ The team is in #Eastbourne #Wetherspoons. Within 5 mins of arriving a bitter faced woman comes up to me & orders me "not to disrupt the event or she will vote Leave again in a #PeoplesVote"
I asked her if she was threatening me? πŸ€”
(At least she is thinking about another vote)
2/ absolutely packed full in #Eastbourne #Wetherspoons. Some holding @LeaveMnsLeave placards. Everyone squeezed in like sardines. I heard a lady whining that Remainers had come. Someone else pulled a pro EU badge off my guitar case and slipped it into their pocket (Beats me?)🀷πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Ί
3/This lady asks what facts Tim has to show food prices won't rise as a result of #Brexit, as evidenced by the various "commentaries" he dismisses. He claims we don't need to charge tarrifs on anything & then food prices will drop, @Jim_Cornelius taking him to task on his lies

Arrived at #Wetherspoons in MCR. Tim Martin arrives 10 mins late & tells us "he is going to give us a talk". I thought this was supposed to be a #Brexit debate? πŸ€” "Metropolitan elites are pushing for a deal we don't need & if we crash out on #NoDeal we will avoid paying Β£39bn"
I just had to point out to Tim that it is our own government who hasn't been implementing EU laws on controlling migration and hasn't properly documented #EUcitizens living in the UK, as they do in other EU countries.
He just admitted he needs to go back and "check his books." πŸ™„
This woman quite rightly pointing out that if we don't pay the Β£39bn financial obligation... then who else is going to pay @Nigel_Farage's pension? πŸ€” Tim says his research hasn't led him to any answers.

In a letter to @Andrew_Adonis, dated 5th September 2018, @Jacob_Reese_mogg displays his complete lack of care for #EUCitizens
@Andrew_Adonis On page 3 of this document, he makes the following statement:

"I do not believe there should be any special terms for EU migrants"

He takes a purely legal standpoint which does nothing to take into consideration the human cost of what will be a big change in legal status.
If you want to read the letter in full, where he discusses the lack of mandate for a second referendum and his stance that any breach of the Belfast agreement would be the fault of the Republic of Ireland, you can find the document here:…
