Re: British people are leaving Switzerland due to EU citizens taking priority

I suppose Brexit vote was a rejection of freedom of movement by the British People, in that while most were thinking about keeping EU out of British Jobs no one really thought about the flip side. Atleast the flip side did not apply to the vast majority.

Sad but true.
Replaced by Germans, French and Eastern Europeans.

You forgot to mention all those Afghans too, anyone else?

Please donít change the subject. The point is new British people are not moving to Switzerland anymore.
A British guy is coming from the UK is joining my work team next Oct 1st. So, it's just about having the skills and motivation. Finally, there will be one in the office who knows even less German than me, I can pass the dunce hat

In my view, yes it is bad for the country.
What country? UK? CH? Or Eastern Europe?

Mentioning the word 'Friday' in any thread on Friday is a sure way of making the thread drift quickly into obscurity.

Brexit is a bit crap for all of us but since I did not see any gaps on the shelves of my local Migros - probably worse for the UK than for us.

And I really liked last weeks move where Bojo raised the income tax significantly to finance the NHS. Really acting on his Brexit promises and the "Singapore on thames" idea, isnt he?

I don't know anyone in the UK who'd move here. I wish my friends did...we need good tenors.

I agree that it's a big step back. Instead of the well-integrated British, we get these French and Italians that don't speak the language and have a terrible food culture.

Tangentially, if British as first language speakers keep leaving, we might rename the forum to Eurish Forum

Yes, I get the feeling that the Germans will take over and there won't be any expats left in 10 years. Every single IT person I meet in Basel Stadt is German, no sign of any Austrians, French or Italians.

Alsatians speak German very very well, so don't assume anything from language proficiency.

don't get me started. You learn Swiss German and high German, pay taxes here and then in every exchange, you are told that your business German isn't good enough.

Much better if we use some kind of creole English with bad spelling and even worse grammar. So, Eurish.
