Official statistics for the United Kingdom show that 5 million Europeans have successfully filled in – and obtained – settled status, meaning they can remain in the country without needing to apply for a visa. According to The Economist, most are from Poland, Romania and Italy and a significant number are quite young: where over 65s represent 19% of the UK population, only 2% of the 5 million applicants are in this age group. Finally, while they may cast their ballots for local candidates, they won't be able to vote in national elections. So will local politicians take them into account when forming their policies and campaigning?
