When David Davis appeared at a press conference in Brussels on Monday, to announce that a Brexit transition deal had been agreed, there was a general acceptance that significant progress had been made.
However, Bremain in Spain, a group campaigning for the UK to remain in the E U, claims that British prime minister, Theresa May, has simply “boxed herself into a corner”.
Sue Wilson, Chair of Bremain in Spain, said: “The news that nothing will change for those exercising their EU citizenship rights during transition was welcome but there was little else to smile about. Davis implied that all citizens' rights issues were settled. However, the same important issues are outstanding now that were outstanding back in December. Nothing has changed, including the level of insecurity we all feel.”
