Perhaps these two groups can get together to exchange views.
Also it is odd that Remainers who tell us that post-Brexit Britain will be absolutely terrible are strongly in favour of those EU nationals being allowed to stay to share in the misery, poverty, xenophobia, racism, food poisoning and Victorian working conditions which they say awaits the UK's residents.
Interesting post carpetcleaner. May return to thread when have more time.
It's not that interesting.
He's posted more or less the same many times before.
It's more or less the whole repertory.
And it's not strictly factual, in that permanently moving to and living in the EU will not be so easy (for most) in the near future, if things go as expected.
Ireland may well be an exception because of older agreements.
A fair few EU residents in the UK ARE leaving I think. As jobs finish here.
I guess they don't feel that welcomed by some sentiments as expressed around the place.
It's not always so nice living somewhere amongst perceived hostility.
The weaker pound is a factor too.
As is uncertainty.
Reciprocal health care is a big and expensive area too.
It is far too early to know for sure about much that will or could happen.
Johnson and the rest need to get back from Mustique first. ((The name from the French because of the mosquitoes
As an aside I quite fancy a small wager that Johnson will not be PM on New Years Eve 2021.
Based on his performance as FS, a poor simplistic style of oratory and the highly complex economic and political difficulties he faces.
