No Deal Brexit: Temporary Leave to Remain scheme to replace Free Movement
As against the UK’s earlier stand, the British government has introduced a temporary Leave to Remain scheme to replace the free movement policy, which facilitates the free entrance of the EU national to the UK.
The new policy will allow the EU nationals reaching the United Kingdom before the end of the year 2020 to remain in the country until the end of the year 2023.
The UK’s earlier stand was that it would end the free movement on the Brexit day. That decision invited severe criticism. Experts even questioned the practicability of that stand.
The UK is in an extremely unstable state. It is likely to witness an election in the near future. Recently, the new Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has expressed his interest to go for an early election. He has lately failed to convince his colleagues in the parliament about his idea of no-deal Brexit. If the things progress in this pace, the country is likely to witness an election in the next month itself.
The deadline given to the UK by the EU to come up with the final approval of the Briton parliament on the Brexit deal is about to expire next month. The present regime of the UK is not interested to seek an extension from the EU and is pushing for a no-deal Brexit, for which the parliament is against.
