Ah, no worries.

It's just frustrating to see the amount of stuff in the media and on social media from the UK that basically equates the absolute, inescapable consequences of Brexit (consequences that were always explicit and obvious to anyone who took the time to research prior to the referendum -- those rules on the ECOC were published and signed in Spring 2014) and re-framing them as though they were some kind of vindictive behaviour by the EU towards the UK.

This is exactly what the UK chose to do. Nobody held a gun to their head. Nobody even wanted them to do it -- it's causing everyone else problems too!

So if the UK has voluntarily decided to relinquish eligibility for the ECOC, then it's no longer eligible for the ECOC. And it's odd when people in Britain get angry with the EU about that. I completely understand you getting angry with your own politicians, or the 52% of you who voted Leave.

That anger, I completely get.
