The British people resigned to Brexit in the French village of Imet in Dordogne
As such, the UK European has officially left the European Union. An agreement was reached between the two parties on December 24 to resolve the terms of Brexit. What will be the changes of the British living in France? It is not uncommon to hear Muriel Paradon, our special correspondent at Emet, speaking English in the medieval village of Imet. One in five people living here are British. So Brexit is a must in every conversation. This departure from the EU is felt badly by most English residents like Andrew: “Everything will be difficult and we will not be able to come and go to the United Kingdom easily at any time. We were members of the European Union. So this is a very sad time for us. Malcolm retired. He has lived in the village for 15 years. But, like all British, he must now have a residence permit to stay in France. “We applied for our residence permit and I hope that will be enough. We can maintain the French social security system because we were there before Brexit, so it will help us. “It simply came to our notice then. Escaping the pressure in London, Alistair moved to Imet with his wife. “We arrived here three weeks ago and just before Brexit, we think it’s a very bad thing for the UK. We have always wanted to buy a house in France. So we have fallen, we love the country, we will work here, pay taxes and contribute to the French economy. We are glad to be here. Country is happy but sad that he chose his country to leave the European Union. See also: Brexit: What changes in trade (or not) on January 1?
