Yes and no.in other words, you can't have it both ways. You can't say expats are going to return to the Uk in droves because they can't afford to live in Euroland, while at the same timke saying that the cost of living in the Uk is going to skyrocket to the point that people will have to leave.
the main reason I quoted was not only for exchange rates lowering pensions significanty- but FOR LOSS OF HEALTH CARE COVER. If UK expats in France or Spain have to take up private cover (taking into account their age and often multiple health conditions, likely to get worse not better (the reality for over 70s) - it would be very expensive, perhaps not even possible. The combination of both would be huge. The French GVT has made it clear to expats that they 'permis de séjour/carte vitale' are only valid until 29th March 2019.
