On Wednesday 22 November at 11am in San Antonio Town Hall the British Consulate will host an open public meeting for all British Nationals living in Ibiza to try and ease concerns over the UK leaving the European Union.
Cónsul General Lloyd Milen and Vice cónsul Lucy Gorman will be given the thankless task of putting themselves in the firing line and unless they know something we don’t expect plenty of ‘we are not sure’ and ‘we can’t say’ with the odd ‘that remains to be seen’ thrown in for good measure.
Even though they won’t have the answers to many questions this hard working duo will be the public face of the UK government in the Balearics during Euro-British negotiations and are trying to keep residents updated in a formal and human way.
This is just the first of many meetings but if you are genuinely concerned about your rights as a British National living in Spain then an hour of your time might be well spent listening to what the UK government has say rather than reading the sensationalist press.
Note: I did say ‘might’ and didn’t even mention the B-word once (title notwithstanding)!
