Even handed....

Now EU exit talks are underway ,& Mrs May has made her opening move on the rights of existing EU immigrants to the UK , i was wondering what reciprocal rights & benefits are available to UK ex pats in Europe. Are the same housing, sickness & unemployment  benefits payable  & pension arrangements as all immigrants to the UK will get.

I doubt this is the case as most benefits in Spain for instance are scant to say the least & it would be grossly unfair for the UK to still be attracting immigrants based on our welfare state & generosity as a nation.

Well, I'm seeing stories of 3 million EU citizens in the UK, that are currently heart broken.  But if we read the rest of the anti-Brexit propaganda, the UK being doomed to poverty and the EU with a bright future, you'd expect the 3 million to be gagging to get home.     :ph34r:

This is the proof that the experts are wrong yet again. If they were right all the EU expats would have gone home and all the would be 3rd world immigrants would have set their hearts on another EU country, anywhere but here.

You see,if the EU is so good ,why do we not have a mirror image of Sangatte in Kent with people jumping in the backs of wagons to get to Europe.It seems that the further south & east you get in the EU the less you are likely to find countries that will provide welfare for their citizens in times of hardship.They will have brilliant roads & railways though & other perks from EU money all provided by net contributors to the EU.

That's why they are so uptight about us leaving, the second highest donor leaving, will blow a hole in their accounts.      :ph34r:
