UK ex­pats fear Brexit

The Star Late Edition - - WORLD -

BRUS­SELS: Most Bri­tish ex­pa­tri­ates in the EU are wor­ried that Brexit will limit their rights in their coun­try of res­i­dence, ac­cord­ing to a sur­vey.

About 83% of re­spon­dents said they were “very con­cerned” about the im­pact Bri­tain’s de­par­ture from the EU could have on them, while only 3.8% an­swered “not at all”.

The sur­vey of 5 000 Bri­tons liv­ing in EU coun­tries or Ice­land, Nor­way and Switzer­land was car­ried out by the Euro­pean branch of the Bri­tish Lib­eral Demo­crat party, which cam­paigned for Bri­tain to stay in the EU. Only 2% of re­spon­dents voted to leave the EU and 57.6% voted to re­main. Reuters
