Two political threads weave together –
Lord Lexden gave another well argued speech yesterday (23rd January) in the House of Lords. Lord Tyler softened his response and made some telling points on the need for constituencies for British Citizens abroad along the lines of the French system. Lord Lexden is asked to set up a cross-party committee to examine the situation. So we are a bit further forward. The cross party committee might even get us designated MPs like the French -eventually.
Yesterday also David Cameron gave his long-awaited speech. He noted ''Hundreds of thousands of British people now take for granted their right to work, live or retire in any other EU country." WHY does he not consult them/us? Give us Representation!
The State pension would be frozen. Current legislation would expect it.
The EHIC [European Health Insurance Card] would cease affecting all British travelers in Europe.
