UK breaking health pledge

My new attestation from the Assurance Maladie is valid to March 29, 2019.

After then, my carte vitale healthcare card will no longer be valid. I will have to apply to obtain medical care for my life-threatening condition.

I have investigated private health insurance, but over a certain age the companies in France are not interested, and even if they were, it would be prohibitively expensive.

Despite earlier promises by the UK government that my status in France will not be affected by Brexit, it concerns me as to what other ways the UK can make life here difficult.  

Will my state pension be frozen, having already been reduced by the fall in the value of the pound? Already, I have lost the right to vote in the UK.

The conclusion is the current UK government cannot be trusted in any way to look after its citizens living in Europe.
