EU citizenship deal for British nationals has no chance, say experts

December 12, 2016, The Guardian

Jean De Ruyt is quoted by The Guardian in an article regarding a proposal to allow British nationals to keep EU citizenship after Brexit. According to De Ruyt, “This proposal is absolutely not serious.” He continues, “It is very vague and for the distant future, it is not something which is made for Brexit. Maybe it can be discussed 10 years from now if member states want to change the treaty.”

He adds that the EU exit agreement foreseen by article 50 made no provision for any substantive treaty change. “The changes in the treaty linked to Brexit will be minimal and directly linked to Brexit.”
