Once the UK leaves the EU, I am afraid that citizens of other EU countries will lose their rights of free movement to the UK, and British citizens will lose their rights of free movement elsewhere in Europe. Of course, this will only apply when/if the UK actually leaves, and unless some kind of deal is done. Nobody really knows at the moment.

There are, as far as I know, no plans to require current EU UK residents to leave UK. No idea what might happen if they should go back home on holiday though!

No deal should be done with the UK. The UK didn't want the euro, didn't want schengen, they voted to leave... Either the EU should devolve back to EEC or they should say bye bye to the UK and proceed without it. The EU leadership should finally get a clue otherwise the EU will cease to exist soon. For starters the EU should create a strong European identity that would unite all European people... Lets have a more powerful EU president elected directly by the people, lets build an EU army, lets make EU a world power, equal to US, Russia and China. It is either that or back to EEC!

The only good thing so far coming out of Brexit is that Turkey will lose a major supporter in their campaign to join the EU....

I don't think any of these will change.

The UK will probably have a similar arrangement as in Norway or Switzerland.

Well, no, it's the day after the referendum and negotiations to leave have not even started. Until the UK actually departs from the union, the old rules will continue to apply.

You all assume that 'free movement' is literally what it says ..... but it isn't! It simply means you are no longer free to enter the EU to work or avail yourself of common services, like benefits. There was no problem going on holiday to or with travelling through Spain, Italy, Cyprus etc. before we were all in the UK, so there will be no difference. We were not a member of Schengen .... neither is Cyprus so we needed a passport/ID card to travel. We live in Cyprus as EU citizens but we still need a residents permit .... so no change there either. You will not require visas but you may require a work permit, contributions to the social fund of the UK will no longer be assumed to be the same as contributions in the country you now reside in and visa-versa.

In Cyprus as far as I know pensioners will still be entitled to use the State Medical services but maybe we will no longer be able to use those of other EU countries unless the UK has the same arrangement with them as it has with Cyprus.

This idea that the doors will be shut and bolted and anyone with a UK passport will be locked out, is the sort of scare story that IMO cost the 'remain' camp the vote. It does not make sense ..... it is not the end of the World or even the UK. :roll:

Not the end of the world... but could this be the final straw that pushes Scotland out of the UK?
