I suspect we’re going to see this cycle over and over again in the next few years.
Efforts to reassure EU citizens in the UK about their future after Brexit are “a first step but not sufficient”, a top EU official has said.
Under plans announced by Theresa May, EU nationals living in the UK for five years would get “settled status”, with access to health and other benefits.
The PM said people deserved certainty but European Commission boss Jean-Claude Juncker said more was needed.
And campaigners said there were still “more questions than answers”.
Remember that EU folks are angry that Britain has decided to exit the EU in the first place, so they aren’t going to be happy with anything other than a reversal of that decision. So Britain is going to announce a Brexit policy, EU officials will say it is insufficient, rinse, repeat.
