Congratulations to Italy, which has become the first of the EU member states to guarantee the rights of UK citizens in a case of no-deal Brexit.
According to reports in The Guardian, high level assurances have been given to the group representing the ca 60,000 Brits living in Italy – British in Italy – that were the UK to exit the EU without a deal, they would retain their rights to live and work in Italy. This is a huge relief to UK ex-pats in Italy and we can only hope it is swiftly followed by similar reassurances from other EU member states. How very satisfying though that Italy should be the first!
