What will happen with BREXIT? Info from the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office We are aware, from discussions with many authors, that BREXIT is an issue that mustn’t be ignored. With an increase in authors, beginning their writing careers from the sunny shores of the Mediterranean or the friendly cities of Northern Europe. There has been NO change to the rights and status of EU nationals in the UK, and UK nationals in the EU, as a result of the referendum. The decision about when to trigger Article 50 and start the formal process of leaving the EU will be for the new Prime Minister. The UK remains a member of the EU throughout this process, and until Article 50 negotiations have concluded. When we do leave the EU, we fully expect that the legal status of EU nationals living in the UK, and that of UK nationals in EU member states, will be properly protected.
