Yes; I know we don't " do" Brexit discussions here now; however this is just information. Which affects many of us.
Despite the media this afternoon being doom and gloom; there is now, it seems, some good news for us immigrants here in France; there has been agreement on our status. Quote from David Davis.

"Citizens Rights
The most obvious area for that is on citizens’ rights which remain a top priority.
This week we have discussed a wide range of issues which will have a significant impact on people’s lives. In particular, both sides have agreed:
To protect the rights of frontier workers.
To cover future social security contributions for those covered by the Withdrawal Agreement.
That we should at least protect existing healthcare rights and arrangements for EU27 citizens in the UK and UK nationals in the EU. The EHIC arrangements.
That is good news for example, for British pensioners in the EU: it means that they will continue to have their health care arrangements protected both where they live and – when they travel to another Member State – to be able to use an EHIC card.
On economic rights, we have secured the right of British citizens in the EU27 to set up and manage a business within their Member State of residence, and of course visa versa.
On mutual recognition of qualifications, we have made progress in protecting the recognition of qualifications for British citizens resident in the EU27 and EU27 citizens in the UK."
So it seems the basics we have like reciprocal health etc may be safe.

I have had a Mail from Sophie in 't Veld MEP to confirm that is the EU position too. Seems the pressure from Guy Verhofstadt and others has forced the UK's hand
