Someone said :
I bet the world's fifth largest economy is quaking in its boots. Not.
It wasn't the worlds fifth largest economy before it joined the Eu!
It's only the worlds fifth richest economy because of free movement of workers from the eu and because it's part of the worlds biggest open market .
Btw why aren't there any old expats where you are ?
Don't the uae and all those countries welcome you with no taxes and free medical care until you reach 60 and then no more free health care and tax tax tax , that's why you see no expats in Dubai over 60
That will be the fate of the U.K. Retirees all over the eu
When workers who contribute to the economy get replaced by retirees who don't , guess what place the economy will fall to?
Reduced output because workers leave
Greater drain on resources because retirees return
If you wanted to destroy an economy you couldn't plan it any better
