Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Well the Swiss aren't in the EU and a Swiss person can go and live and work in the UK with no permit at all... so I'd think they will probably just have an agreement between the two countries. Otherwise the UK might turn around and say no to the Swiss.
Most of you are too young to remember the days when this was not the case. I certainly had to have a work permit to go and work in the UK in 1970. It was almost impossible to obtain in those days- I was VERY lucky I knew the right people, had the right contacts, etc - as the firm had to make the application for me and make a strong case for employing me, rather than a UK national. If the vote passes tomorrow in CH, and if BREXIT goes through- we may well revert to this scenario. No studying in each other's country and very restrictive work permit in exceptional cases.
