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

So now you move your goal posts from 2010 - 2015 to 2012 - 2016

Anyway what is the relevance of the period 2012 - 2016 to your claim "the UK opening its doors to the new member states before the other senior EU countries did, which led to a disproportionately high inflow of expats from those countries to the UK" when the UK opened these doors in 2004?
If you are such a detailed-oriented person, then yes I moved the post. Sue me.

As far as I am concerned, I was referring to the years before the referendum.
I was writing from my phone in the U-Bahn on the way back to work, and I did not have the time to find the exact years.
Were the EU-citizens immigration numbers much higher in 2015 than in 2010? As per your graph, absolutely yes, from about 75 thousand to about 175 thousand.
Did the massive increase happen exactly between 2010 and 2015? No, it started in 2012 and lasted until 2016. I should burn in hell for this.

At the same time, you accused me of lying, or at best that I had believed lies and was spreading them in the forum, and your best attempt at validating your claim was the immigration numbers from 2018.
So I repeat, have you no shame?
Moving in and out of Switzerland (because it's fun).
Currently away. Miss the Alps.
