b) Understood the required components but then failed to ensure they would meet the required conditions to allow stay.

Perhaps if they flew a Union flag over their house it might help their odds

Oh well, hope they enjoy the weather back in Blighty
Yep, UK immigrants to Spain could apply for residency going forwards if they were residents before 1st January. The same applies for EU born citizens on the UK.

To be resident while still under EU Freedom of Movement rules, they needed to register with the Spanish Government (getting a NIE card) Failure to register meant that they were not resident in the formal sense so they fall under the 90 days in every 180 rules and time's up now

Fair enough. Put up or shut up and they're putting up.

UK shellfish farmers threaten legal action over ban on exports to EU

Industry claims it was misled by Defra over post-Brexit position and will sue unless trade with Europe restarts soon

The environment secretary, George Eustice, is facing a threat of legal action from shellfish farmers over claims that the government has misled the industry over its post-Brexit arrangements with the EU.

A solicitor representing 20 shellfish firms told the Guardian the government had shown “negligence and maladministration” and that a group action was being considered for compensation.

Separately, an exporter of mussels sent a legal letter to the secretary of state saying the firm would sue for damages if the shellfish market with the EU were not opened up by September.

Re: Britain outside the EU

Andrew has postulated in the Scotland thread that the UK or its successor will sooner or later seek to rejoin the EU. Andrew has invited discussion of his postulation in this thread.

Indeed but more later than sooner though! From the Scottish indy thread. For the avoidance of doubt, the first line is intended to be humorous.

I do think the UK or its successors will rejoin the EU but not that soon. And the EU is not exactly making a strong case for membership at the moment! But an independent Scotland would find it tricky to join the Single Market if E&W didn't join at the same time.

Re: Britain outside the EU

Nicola Sturgeon has started heavily qualifying her statements about an independent Scotland being in the EU. She’s now all about “trying” to rejoin, whereas in 2014 the Yes campaign claimed Scotland’s accession would be all but automatic. Having been running the government here for so long, and either side of Brexit, she is more aware than most where Scotland’s economic dependence lies, and it is with England more than with every other nation in the world combined. Erecting tariff and quota barriers with England would be catastrophic for Scotland, and would in no way be commensurate with the benefits of having barriers removed from EU trade. For Scotland to be in the EU, England must be too. Yet with the Scotland excluded from an English vote on EU membership, a Rejoin majority in England would be even harder to achieve.

Re: Britain outside the EU

Andrew didn't say he was - he was saying he (Andrew) was being boring by agreeing with Chris, rather than debating the point.

imho...

That's how I saw it too . . . that doesn't necessarily mean Andrew finds it boring agreeing with people though.

You're right.

And despite the date, it's not an April Fool's joke.

Topic? I'm pretty certain there is one but not what's being discussed currently.

Re: Britain outside the EU

Well I never!
Quote:
John le Carré: Spy novelist 'died an Irishman'
By Alan Haslam BBC News NI

He served as a British diplomat and an MI5 secret agent, but espionage writer John le Carré died an Irishman, his youngest son has said.

Nicholas Cornwell said his father, best known for his intricately plotted Cold War thrillers, gained Irish citizenship before his death in December.

Mr Cornwell told the BBC Le Carré was "furious" and disillusioned after Brexit.

Towards the end of his life he began to research his Irish roots.

The author of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and The Spy Who Came in From the Cold discovered he was entitled to an Irish passport through his grandmother, Olive Wolfe, who was born in County Cork.

His application for citizenship was successful.
