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

Quote:
And in the meantime, the refusal from GVT via Amber Rudd, to give EU residents in the UK the right to stay beyond Brexit also means 490.000 UK retirees in the EU are still being used as pawns- with their right to stay and reciprocal healthcare coming to an end on 1st of March 2019.

With pension values dropping due to falling Sterling, and the prospect of having to pay massive private healthcare schemes- in their 60s, 70s and 80s with pre-existing conditions- imagine what will happen even if only 20% are forced to return without funds (houses bought in deepest France and Italy being totally un-saleable at the moment and all savings tied into said property) - on the NHS, housing, social care and in many case OAP residential care.

Do listen to those trendy Lefties discussing the issues here:

The UK is very generous as you should know, whilst the UK pays your Swiss health insurance, A Swiss pensioner living in the UK has to pay 400 CHF a month Swiss health insurance if they live in the UK. (no free NHS for Swiss pensioners in the UK). The idea is reciprocal health agreement, there is no reciprocation whatsoever.
