Yes, it will be very much in the interest of the rural and coastal economies of Spain, Portugal and France to have droves of British up and leave.

It's amazing that decades on, southern Europe still cannot make enough money to run itself and continues to cry for handouts.

i think the ukip line is if they are not working or contributing to the economy they are just a drain on resources ? If for example they haven't learnt the language they've made no effort to integrate , would this attitude be tolerated in the uk?

What is the uk debt ? It's trillions ? It's increasing every penny sterling drops in value at even the thought of brexit , what's up with the U.K. Economy that it can't even break even?
when 2 .5 million young hard working Eastern Europeans go home and are replaced by the same number of geriatric British citizens who don't contribute to the economy but just consume services imagine what the scenario will look like !

The young 'hard-working' (i imagine they work no harder or less hard than the average person) dont have to go if britain doesnt want them to go. People are queueing up to get into britain. Including the Irish. It can have its pick of the world. Its just this time it gets to control its own borders

By definition, everyone works harder or less hard than the average unless they are bang on the average...
Just saying.

Big difference between findings of online polls like Yougov and phone polls. Yougov say phone polls have too many graduates (a group that favours Remain).

too many graduates?
You mean the educated have a different idea than the ignorant?

Do you think they might know something?

For polling purposes ie an overrepresentation of graduates. It's a western thing that people are voting increasingly along class lines, and graduates are usually more middle class. As in the Scottish referendum they have more to lose because they start off with more, thus tending towards the status quo.

If brexit happens and they don't sign up to the EEA the 250000 uk citizens living here may face barriers to living here , the EU will impose reciprocal residency requirements on them if they apply them on eu citizens in the UK , the minimum salary for residency requirement for example which the uk has imposed on non eu citizens .
I wonder how many of them would pass?
As well their pensions won't be index linked any more and they will lose all eu citizens rights .
Another detrimental side effect

Someone said :

We have voted and passed all EU treaties

I am not worried about the UK leaving
First off it wont be any great loss
The UK has always been an awkward member and isnt participating in the major EU structures

In relation to Ireland and UK trade
If and I feel its unlikely the UK does leave it will for, a free trade relationship with the EU so Irish/UK relations will be like Sweden/Norway or Switzerland/Germany

Maybe not cos Ireland and the UK are separate islands, whereas weden/Norway and Switzerland/Germany are joined geographically by land.

How would make any difference?
Are the signatories only able to meet on foot?

The UK and Ireland are joined geographically by land too.

Ireland and the U.K. are not separate islands. The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland has a land border with the Republic of Ireland.

Looks like Brexit might well happen, according to recent polls. Brave new world.

I don't want the UK to leave but I gotta admit it will be interesting times ahead if they do.
