British people are leaving Switzerland due to EU citizens taking priority

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

Anyone Brit living here at the end of last year can stay, so no reason to leave due to BREXIT

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

Well, people arenít coming anymore because itís almost impossible to get a job so the population of expats will continue to decline over time.

Bulgaria is still very popular with UK pensioners, with no sign of that stopping, or so I am told.

Your logic beats me. Are only Brits entitled to be called expats

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expatriate

An expatriate (often shortened to expat) is a person residing in a country other than their native country.

By this defintion, the Germans, Italians, French and Eastern European are also expats.

I am originally not from Europe and have a Swiss citizenship but still think of myself as an expat

On the upside are there 100k job openings for truck drivers in the UK right now, so all the expats should find work back home...

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

I'm helping 3 new English arrivals get settled who arrived over the last 4 months, 4 more are due to arrive in the coming months, and a few others have been made offers and declined, or haven't yet decided. Do you have any evidence to back up your claim?

Ok, so the topic is "Brits find out that after unilaterally ending the freedom of movement, movement is suddenly less free"?
