Latest News & PROPHECY: Choose the Commonwealth NOT EU! Australians call for new migrant rights after Brexit
COMMONWEALTH countries are urging the British government to give their citizens improved rights after Brexit.

Theresa May’s plans for EU citizens post Brexit are being looked over by commonwealth countries
The calls, led by Australian foreign minister Julie Bishop, are growing louder as the British team negotiate citizens rights with the European Union.
Ms Bishop told The Times there would be widespread disappointment in Australia and fellow Commonwealth countries if nothing is done to secure the rights of its population in Britain.
She warned her concerns were echoed by New Zealand, India and Canada.
Under the proposals which Theresa May outlined to fellow leaders in June, all EU nationals who have been in the UK for five years will be entitled to “settled status”, granting them the same rights as their British neighbours to healthcare, education, welfare benefits and pensions.
Those with a shorter period of residency will be able to stay on to reach the five-year threshold and others arriving after a yet-to-be-defined cut-off date will have a “grace period” to regularise their status.
Ms Bishop has demanded the same rights as those offered to the EU – meaning, Australians will have a greater right to remain in the UK.
Mrs May said her plans “Give those three million EU citizens in the UK certainty about the future of their lives and we want the same certainty for the more than one million UK citizens who are living in the European Union.”
Australian foreign minister Julie Bishop wants Australians rights to be secure after Brexit
The Home Office has plans to give European citizens wanting to work in Britain after Brexit a soft touch immigration option.
They would not need to apply for visas but their employers would need to get a work permit. This way, the government would be able to control the number of permits issued.
However, many Commonwealth countries fear the system would penalise their citizens. They have to have secured a job and have a visa at hand to ensure that they can come to England.
Australians have to obtain a visa to allow them to stay in the UK for five years – but are only eligible if they have secured a skilled job, with a £25,000 salary.

At least 137,000 EU citizens came to work in the UK last year.
Figures show that there were at least 157,000 Australians and New Zealand working in the UK.
But many Commonwealth countries are hoping that the process could be streamlined.
end of report
Bible Students fully expected to see Britain embrace the Commonwealth Countries following BREXIT. Bible Prophecy is very clear on the fact that Britain will along with the Commonwealth Countries (and America who is also of British origin) make up the King of the South at the time of the end that will move to stop Russia and Europe from invading the Middle East.
God has declared the End from the Beginning and the Bible (God’s Word) revealed that Britain would not be part of the EU when Christ Returns to Earth, and World Events have conspired to ensure that has now happened. But we need to keep watching this development as there is much to see yet as Britain takes her place once more on the World Political Stage.

Bible Truth & Prophecy is an exciting on-line tool for establishing just how far removed from the teachings of the Bible mainstream Christian teaching has become.
End Time Prophecies are interpreted using the Bible, not man made ideas or notions.
Key Biblical subjects such as the Trinity, Devil/Satan worship, Holy Spirit Gifts & much more are all dealt with extensively from the Bible’s viewpoint and not man’s.
We will demonstrate how Christian beliefs have become corrupted, and reveal the ‘Truth’ as taught by the 1st Century Apostles.
