        That too, in that they don’t want seasonal agricultural workers to feel secure, because then they can be abused harder on pain of summary deportation, but they also need enough young British people to stay put to keep everything else afloat both through their direct labour, through the services made possible from the taxes they pay, and from the competition their expertise and economic effect they provide if they remain in the UK.

    If the UK doesn’t want it, offer it to Australia. We’re already in Eurovision!

      I have a grudge against Australia. No visa free travel for Canadians, but Australians can come here visa free. Sad!

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    The UK has rejected a EU offer that would make it easier for people aged between 18 and 30 to study and work abroad in the wake of Brexit.

    It added it wanted to improve the UK’s relationship with the EU by agreeing new arrangements for recognising work qualifications, trading food and agricultural products, and touring performers.

    The EU’s free movement rules were a key part of the 2016 Brexit referendum, with the Leave campaign pledging to exit them to give the UK greater control over immigration.

    In a policy document, the European Commission said it was stepping in after the UK approached several unnamed EU countries last year to discuss individual deals.

    The European Commission is proposing an EU-UK deal that would go further, lasting up to four years with no restrictions on time spent working, studying, training or volunteering.

    In a statement, the Home Office said its existing youth mobility programmes had been “successful” and it remained “open to agreeing them with our international partners, including EU member states”.
