Lets be realistic, British expats in Switzerland are not going to be affected anywhere near as much as British residents. It doesn't even make any logical sense to think so.

Brexit will impact wages, cost of goods, jobs, living conditions etc etc and that is what British residents will experience. Us expats are living within a different economy and political system and are extremely cushioned from the impacts of Brexit by that.
Maybe, but those impacts are pretty remote, and the financial/trade differences are those most likely to be resolved (or fudged) in some way.

Expats are much more likely to be impacted by the right to work or live in an EU country, which given our location is a significant thing.

For example, say one of my kids wants to go and work in France for six months - currently they can do that as a UK citizen, and they could do that as a Swiss citizen - but post-Brexit it's quite possible they can't so easily.
