The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Theresa May has sent a Christmas email to ask for peace of mind for the residents of the country before the arrival of Brexit.
UK Prime Minister Theresa May has sent a Christmas email to foreigners living in the UK, including of course the Spanish, to explain what will happen to them after the Brexit. The letter ensures that the rights of foreigners will be respected and clarifies in several parts that also those of the British who are in the EU. The end is the best: “I want you to stay, Merry Christmas. “
It is Christmas time and we are all receiving postcards, until the Kings of Spain have made their Christmas card, and we bring you a very special one. The Brexit of the United Kingdom, that is to say, its exit from the European Union, has many implications and the time when the definitive break with the EU takes place is getting closer. But of course, many doubts arise for the many Spaniards there.
About 3 million citizens of the European Union who until now resided there under the premise of the free movement of people and goods, among them, more than 100,000 Spaniards, who have received a message of hope from the UK Prime Minister Theresa May.
Under the title, “Letter to EU citizens living in the United Kingdom”, it begins: “As Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, I am proud that more than 3 million EU citizens have chosen to establish their homes and means of subsistence here in our country, “May begins in an extensive text.

“I know our country would be poorer if you left and I want you to stay . “
The Prime Minister explains that those Europeans who have lived more than five years in the country when the Brexit is produced can opt for the status of settled, a new migratory category that is equivalent to the current permanent residence.
The email specifies that the rights to healthcare, pensions and other benefits will remain the same as they are today. But in addition, the European Health Card of the United Kingdom will remain in force.
However, as the agreements and specific terms are still pending in the negotiations with the EU, May, who was already a victim of Internet memes after the Brexit announcement, ends the email saying: “Right now you do not have to do nothing at all. ” And before saying goodbye he wishes “you and all your families a great Christmas and a very happy New Year”. Well, we also wish you.
