Your take on the situation suggested that we need to register again or get some "stamp".
Lets debate this draft law rationally, I have read this document in original Polish and the latest transcript I posted above is a fair translation.
After reading it and discussing it with a lawyer friend it is a process for people who CURRENTLY hold residency documents, hence it states clearly that in effect this is a re-assessment of current residents "favourable" decisions and the right to appeal any negative decision.
Now the upshot is ( my legal bud agrees) that in effect current British residents will be re-assessed and may not be automatically be allowed to stay in Poland.
It may be the case that some current residents have committed crimes or are considered a potential threat to Poland, will no longer have their stay protected under European law, and so Poland will be free to choose who stays, and in some cases to remove those individuals (negative assessment) from the country even if they have been resident for years.
It is very clear that British citizens living in Poland with residency documents will not have an automatic right of stay.
"After receiving a positive decision, the person concerned will obtain a residence card with a special "Brexit" annotation"
Interesting and worrying don't you think?
