Brexit up­date

Living France - - What's New -

Brexit con­tin­ues to breed un­cer­tainty. The UK Chan­cel­lor Philip Ham­mond has an­nounced the au­tumn bud­get, which will be the last UK bud­get be­fore Brexit, but has also said an emer­gency bud­get would be nec­es­sary if there is no deal on Bri­tain’s exit from the EU. Sup­port has grown for there to be a ‘peo­ple’s vote’ on the deal with 700,000 peo­ple march­ing in Lon­don in Oc­to­ber and the Mayor of Lon­don Sadiq Khan back­ing the idea. In the mean­time, many Bri­tish peo­ple liv­ing in France have taken the step to seek French na­tion­al­ity, with 1,370 peo­ple ap­ply­ing for cit­i­zen­ship in the first six months of 2018. This is a vast in­crease when com­pared to only 386 Bri­tons ap­ply­ing for cit­i­zen­ship in 2015, be­fore the EU Ref­er­en­dum.
