very clever, but I dont think it would change anything for previous owners.
I know people buying many country TLD's without being related to those countries..

This applies only to .eu domain owners in the UK ,it has nothing to do with other countries TLD.

I doubt that this brexit will even happen though. I remember seeing the same thing about eu domains back in 2016. Although it is very alarming, especially for UK companies using this tld. But I am sure they will allow them to keep them somehow, I hope at least.

I hope brexit fails too,however if it doesn't then the .eu will not be available to UK residents.

Personally, I'm hoping/expecting that the UK .eu domain names will be "grandfathered" in, similar to what happened when the rules around .edu domain names changed in the past. (This would mean that if you already had a .eu domain name you'd be able to keep it, but not register any new .eu domains.)
