FarmerTony 5pts So the EU won't discuss the security of its citizens living within its borders until after Article 50 has been triggered, but are more than happy to discuss the size of the bill for the UK leaving to keep the EU functioning. Some mixed messages there, but it absolutely shows the priorities of the EU; institution before citizen.I suspect however that the noise coming out out Junker's mouth is actually intended for the hoi polloi in the Netherlands and France. In the UK it only serves to harden the attitude against the EU. What the demand for the leaving bill introduces is the notion of a 4-5 year transitional arrangement. In return for helping the EU to adjust their budgets over a period of time the UK should demand current arrangements for access to the EU internal markets (not the one that uses people as a commodity).
