EU Parliament threatens veto on Brexit

Boris Johnson: EU's exit bill demand 'extortionate'

In this regard, Verhofstadt, Belgian politician, said that they will not approve any document in which the rights of European Union citizens are undermined in the United Kingdom or UK citizens in EU. The EU wants it to be the latter.

Keir Starmer, Brexit spokesman for the opposition Labour Party, told the BBC it is "highly likely" he'll seek to amend the bill to limit the role of the executive in changing laws and increase the power of Parliament.

Theresa May's proposals over how to treat European Union nationals after Brexit have been dismissed by some of the most senior figures in the process as "a damp squib", carrying the "real risk of creating second-class citizenship".

The letter has been welcomed by expat groups the3million and British in Europe.

After a British businessman who has lived in Germany for 25 years raised concerns about his future, Merkel said he may want to apply for German citizenship "to be on the safe side".

The letter was authored by Guy Verhofstadt, the leader of the Liberal group (Alde) and the parliament's Brexit coordinator.

But May's position seems secure for now, with colleagues preferring to see her start Brexit talks rather than topple her and risk the government collapsing - a scenario that could let a resurgent opposition Labour Party into power.

David Griffin pulls his name out of Knicks GM, President search
Steve Mills is the acting team president and met with Griffin in NY on Friday, according to The Post's Marc Berman . The team president role was vacated when the Knicks and Phil Jackson mutually agreed to part ways this offseason.

Surprisingly, 54% of British business owners said that they hadn't noticed a positive or negative impact on the Brexit decision.

U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May's opening offer on the topic in June was rebuffed by chief European Union chief negotiator Michel Barnier, who said "more ambition, clarity and guarantees" were needed.

It is therefore important that the parliament be involved early in the process so as not to end up with a situation where there are "major problems" at the end because parliament doesn't agree, she said.

The talks for Brexit between the EU and the United Kingdom finally began on June 19, 2017, about a year after the Brexit referendum was held, and after on March 29, 2017, British Prime Minister Theresa May formally triggered Article 50 of the EU's Lisbon Treaty, which deals with exit from the European Union, initiating a two-year process of negotiations.

Under the proposals, European Union nationals who have been resident in Britain for five years would earn permanent residency rights as is now the case.

"If the freedom of movement is gone, I won't be able to apply for the jobs in the first place", said Williams, who has worked for the Luftwaffe in Germany and on ballistic missile defence systems, moving around Germany, Belgium and Holland for periods of six months to two years.
