Want retain personal EU citizenship? Petition

On 4 Feb 2017 at 11:09pm Remainer wrote:
In the Spring of 2017, a proposal will be debated on the possibility of offering 'personal associate EU citizenship' to individuals from former member states. The idea is that if Britain, or any other nation, exits the EU, individual citizens of that country who wished to retain a personal right to live and work across the EU should be able to do so..
This proposal will be debated when the European Parliament (EP), whose role is to represent the voice of European citizens, is given an opportunity to discuss and adopt a resolution on the Brexit agreement. The proposal will be supported by Charles Goerens, Member of the EP (Luxembourg) and Guy Verhofstadt (Belgium), the European Parliament’s lead negotiator in Brexit talks, both members of the Group of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe.
The Pan-European is a new association that supports this proposal - not just in the name of the 16 million Britons who voted to remain EU citizens and the 1.3 million Britons already living and working in the EU ( many of whom were denied the right to vote under the UK electoral law), but in the name of all people who want to express their support for and belief in the European project at a time when it is threatened by the rise of nationalist parties in many member countries.
The Pan-European's objective is to represent, inform and connect individual European citizens irrespective of their nationality or the political position of their country's government, starting with the fight to create the separate legal status of individual EU citizen for all who wish it.
By signing this petition, you will be signaling your opinion to Mr Goerens and Mr Verhofstadt, both advocates in the European Parliament of the associate EU citizen status.
This petition will be delivered to:
Guy Verhofstadt, Lead Brexit negotiator for the European Parliament,
and Charles Goerens, Member of the European Parliament

How would this work? Surely it couldn't supersede any settlement between the UK and the EU.

Firstly the number of UK in the EU has been recently shown to be 900,000 not 1.3 million. Secondly Theresa May is already trying to secure the rights of these and for the 3 million in the UK to stay and actually it's the EU who haven't allowed early negotiations on it.
If you want EU citizenship not British I suggest you move to one of the 27 countries in Europe out of 51 that it represents.

Allowing UK citizens to do this will not affect those who choose not to in any way, so denying them this would just show them up for the mean spirited manger dogs they are. Besides, a huge proportion of UK residents are already entitled to EU citizenship anyway. Anyone with an Irish born grandparent for example. So why not extend the privilege?

Ah ha,the Pan European Movement founded by Richard Von Coudenhove Kalergi in 1922. European integration being the first step to a New World Order,a federation of nations led by the United States of America,leading to a one world government. He wanted mass immigration of"inferior races" to form a mongrel European citizenry without history or social cohesion which could be easily dominated by the elite. They've almost got it haven't they? Please wake up and smell what's under your shoes. They want helpless slaves,do you want to volunteer?
