Associate EU Citizenship

The European Parliament is debating a measure allowing disappointed British Remainers to apply for ‘associate’ citizenship of the EU, with certain privileges, as individuals. That seems a great idea. The Brexit vote robbed me of one of my proudest ‘identities’, as a European. This would give it me back. But Brexiteers are up in arms against it: http://www.standard.co.uk/news/politics/european-parliament-considers-plans-for-brits-opposed-to-brexit-to-remain-eu-citizens-a3390696.html. I really can’t see why, unless it’s out of spite. (They can be a spiteful lot.)
