IF you’re look­ing for an EU au pair after Brexit you may strug­gle to find one.

Those here on De­cem­ber 31, 2020 can stay for good. Seems fair. Au pair lit­er­ally means “on equal terms”. But that’s not re­ally an au pair’s way. The po­si­tion is, by its na­ture, tem­po­rary.

Now Brexit min­is­ter Suella Braver­man says from 2021 EU au pairs will face the same im­mi­gra­tion rig­ma­role as those from any­where else, though she’s try­ing to ne­go­ti­ate spe­cial deals for Nor­way, Ice­land and Switzer­land.

That was just one Brexit prob­lem Suella, and the 650 staff at DExEU, the Depart­ment for Ex­it­ing the Euro­pean Union, tried to sort out last week.

They will, of course, all be laid off after Brexit, but never mind, eh?

If every­thing goes pear-shaped, or even au pair-shaped, they’ll soon be taken on again at DRe­jEU. That’ll be the Depart­ment for Re­join­ing the Euro­pean Union.
