This is a good round-up of the rights that EU citizens living in the UK seem likely to lose, notwithstanding the government’s protestations that their rights will be largely unchanged.

I list them here, but they are better explained in the article.

  • The right to go abroad
  • The right to fall in love with a foreigner
  • The right to care for an elderly parent
  • The right to have their rights independently adjudicated
  • The right to free movement (if your family includes UK citizens
  • The right to use an ID card rather than a passport
  • The right to live in the UK without a UK ID card
