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

The fact that it is easier for any random German or Italian or Greek to move to the United Kingdom than people from Jamaica or Pakistan or Australia is patently absurd, even if there are more of the latter in terms of sheer numbers.
It's a reciprocal agreement whereby any UK citizen is free to move to Germany or Italy or Greece or other EU country.

That right simply does not exist for UK citizens wishing to move to Jamaica or Pakistan or Australia.

It's only recently that moves have been made by India to allow foreigners a majority holding in Indian companies, which really sticks in the craw given the easy access they have been given to the UK job market.

And for what it's worth, I have lived in a Commonwealth country and had to to through the immigration process there. It was far from automatic.
