Guy Verhofstadt: Britons Should Keep EU Rights Post-Brexit

British citizens should be allowed to keep the benefits of EU membership, according to the chief Brexit negotiator at the European Parliament.


Guy Verhofstadt said allowing individuals to keep rights such as freedom to travel and vote in European elections should be a priority.


Mr Verhofstadt told the BBC that the rights of EU nationals living in the UK and Brits living on the continent should be prioritised and that they "cannot be part of the political games" that have taken place over the past few months.


He told Radio 4 that he had received more than 1,000 letters from UK citizens who did not want to lose their relationship with the EU. He said:


"So emotion is now coming up and all those voters will want to remain in the European Union and have the feeling that they are lost, that nobody is defending them anymore, that they are losing a part of that identity – and it's for that reason that I'm trying to convince the European Union, not only the European Parliament, to take on board that feeling of UK citizens."
