EU Demands on Citizens Rights “Ridiculously High”

Brexit Secretary David Davis said European Union demands to protect its citizens’ rights in the U.K. are “ridiculously high” and will be the first subject of negotiations to exit the bloc after next month’s election.

European officials “are playing very hardball tactics and someone will have to know how to deal with them,” Davis told LBC Radio on Tuesday. “The demands they are putting up are ridiculously high on EU citizens.”

With just over a week to go before the election on June 8 and with the main opposition Labour Party narrowing the gap in the opinion polls, the governing Conservatives are seeking to move the focus back to Brexit to galvanize fresh support for their campaign.
