Re: brexit

The problem with returning to the UK is no help is given for some months regarding housing etc. If someone keeps their home in the UK then all is okay. But for some people who have lived overseas for years and do not have property there, then help is not given readily, unlike some other immigrants. You do not lose your passport but whereas one would assume that the country where one was born, worked and paid taxes in one would remain an ordinary citizen, that is not so. Like I said, I object to being classed as an immigrant when I am not.
I have been told by a social services department that I would have to find somewhere lot live and pay for everything for up to 6 months before any state assistance would be granted. The cost of renting and living in the UK far outweighs my pension so I feel penalised. I hope to stay out of the country as long as I can as it obviously doesn't want expats of pensionable age returning unless they are wealthy.

Re: brexit

I went to A and E with a shoulder problem after returning from Turkey with a deep
suntan.
(Shoulder nothing to do with holiday)

I was asked if I had been out of the UK for more than 12 weeks in the past 12 months .

If so I would have to pay for my treatment .

Gobsmacked me .
EU travel didn't count .

Here is,the latest I can find quickly

Re: brexit

First, there was Brexit—the possibility of Britain leaving the European Union in its upcoming membership referendum. Then there was Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka’s irresistible coinage of Czexit to warn of knock-on referenda elsewhere in the EU. Now, a new poll suggests that we could be dealing with the threat of Frexit, Swexit, Gerxit and Spexit in the not-too-distant future.

Research from Edinburgh University shows that 53 percent of French would like to hold their own vote on EU membership, and in Spain, Germany and Sweden more people are in favor of doing so than are opposed.

Marine le Pen, leader of the hard-right Euroskeptic party Front National, which wants France to hold an EU referendum, welcomed the research in a blog post, saying French demands for a referendum were “extremely encouraging.”

Scenario:

We vote to remain, 12 months later Germany or France or even both vote to leave. We are left holding the babies bath water for what's rapidly becoming a bunch of countries that are forever holding hands out for cash.
I read somewhere that Germany itself would do very well out of the Euro, if they left the EU then no doubt they would leave the Euro as well.

A German or French referendum would be an even more scary issue to the EU than a Brexit I reckon. Will they ever get a referendum though, I think they will somewhere down the line.

I don't know of any housing waiting list that isn't based on need and the fact is the government wants rid of social housing in the UK and wants people to use the private sector to access rented accommodation

Re: brexit

That's just disgraceful Glyn. BBC news yesterday reported that one immigrant (one of many I suspect) in Portsmouth had clocked up a huge medical bill. It amounted to thousands of pounds (I can't remember the exact amount) No questions asked, of course, and he/she hadn't paid in a single dime, of course. It makes me really furious when I hear stories like yours, and there are plenty of them, only to learn that people deliberately come to the U.K. to help themselves to our NHS etc. Using the NHS for childbirth is yet another big scam by the way.
