A Chairman's Welcome

8 September 2017

 

Dear Members and Friends of the British Business Club Düsseldorf

 

I would like to extend a warm welcome to the British Business Club Düsseldorf (BBCD) website to all our members, friends and visitors. We will be gradually increasing the content on our website over the next few months, so do come back and get updated from time to time.

 

 

 

 

Tam Pearce will be managing the stand for us, as well as the welly wanging, with a team of helpers, for which many thanks from us all. Unfortunately the traditional Last Night of the Proms concert will not be held this year, as previously reported, due to the withdrawal of the major sponsor.

 

 

Brexit

The repercussions and uncertainties of Brexit meeting report continue to preoccupy many of our members. In co-operation with a new lobby group, British in Germany, the British Consul-General, Rafe Courage, hosted an open meeting for British citizens in North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate to discuss citizens’ rights following Brexit that was held on 30 August at the Hotel Intercontinental in Düsseldorf. The meeting was well attended and there was an update on the current status of the negotiations with regards to citizens’ rights. Representatives from the Embassy, the British Consulate General and British In Germany gave presentations and answered questions.

 

Daniel Tetlow, a journalist and the co-founder of British In Germany, said he would be very pleased to hear from all Brits living in North Rhine Westphalia. His group is affiliated to a wider coalition, “British In Europe”, and actively campaigns to protect the rights of British citizens in Germany and other EU countries and the rights of EU citizens in the UK during the Brexit negotiations:

 

The British Embassy provided the following links to the joint EU-UK technical note on citizens’ rights, an updated version of which has just been published following the August round of negotiations:

 

If you would like to receive e-mail alerts when new information on citizens' rights is available you can register for updates at:

 

 

One of the meeting attendees asked towards the end whether the audience would be willing to signal by show of hands whether it thought that Brexit was "a huge mistake by UK government". The result was an overwhelming yes, perhaps not surprisingly. Many British expats complained during the meeting that they were not allowed to vote in the Brexit referendum, although they were still British nationals and paying UK taxes.

 

A British Embassy spokesman, when questioned about a possible discontinuation of the rules allowing dual nationality, told the audience that, if that were to happen, the cut-off date would most likely be the date that the UK leaves the EU.

 

It was also announced that further such meetings would also be held in Cologne, Paderborn and Bielefeld.

 

 

 

Best regards from Benrath
