  1. Ah’ Fred, but the British passport didn’t just cover Europe which will not be a legal tender anymore if Brexit happens and as you hopefully say there maybe a £10 fee (talk was £5) required for a visa to travel in Europe which as I stated would not be a free visa, freedom of travel yes. It’s all stupid really, would that mean a tit for tat if European’s wished access the UK. Talk about petty stuff among-st so called “intelligent politicians”.
    No petty stuff from Teresa May. She has stated that all E.U members residing in the UK will be able to remain. Have we heard the same response regarding expats from the cronies of Europe. Nah.
