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

Why the hell should a British pensioner be forced to stay in the UK, where thousands every year are subject to fuel poverty, when they can support themselves well enough to live longer and happier elsewhere? More to the point, what right do any of us have to dictate to them how they spend their money after working for it all their lives?
Nobody is forcing anybody to do anything. If people have the money to retire abroad, they can apply for the appropriate residence permit just like any other foreigner. People were retiring abroad long before the EU even existed. People will continue to do so long after the EU has disappeared into the dustbin of stupid ideas.

This all seems like a lot of fuss over nothing.
