Our booming IT contract market can easily support 45,000 coming home :rolleyes:

Don't think May is aware that if EU citizens get a bad deal back home it'll affect people like myself out here. Jesting aside it is causing serious dismay amongst those in my fraternity, unlike ourselves, who don't have the means to up sticks and relocate, it is just not that simple.

Complete and utter @£:tantrum:$£@ mess. Don't think I've ever known a government to cause such dismay amongst the people.

come to think about it, if a Brit needed to apply for a work permit and visa (eg like Injuns do) for every contract in an EU country, this would take the Brits out of the EU zone contract market as they wouldn't be able to get visa's and permits in time for the start of the contract - permie roles might be more flexible, but contracts need somebody who can start right now

You cant spend any length of time in Europe, especially the countries mentioned, and not pay local taxes. Agree that having a EU passport is a necessity lost count of the number of times I was asked that when going to Germany.

You spend all your time moaning about the UK. It does not pay the salary you want. Its not as good as Germany.

And now you want UK help?

Well f**k you and the horse you rode in on.

By rode I mean in the biblical sense....

The UK needs to create a special expat fund for people like us. Perhaps it can become part of the aid budget. Expats do an enormous amount of good for promoting the UK and business back home, myself included. Not that long ago I hooked up a German client with a company based in Fife. So before you get on the jingoistic high horse you might want to consider other factors. Just because I don't pay tax in the UK does not mean I don't contribute.

Try and explain this to people and the level of networking is over their head. Pointless.

The government said it made the offer in the “expectation that the EU would offer reciprocal treatment for UK nationals resident in its member states”.

Oh look its not up to the nasty old Brits, its mother EUSSR comrade, do feel free to ring Donald Trusk and ask him to help...

You are joking right, you talk down this country constantly. You a winging pointless twat.

Big ******* deal, you introduced someone from Fife to a German client, but how many German clients have been put off dealing with the UK by your general incompetence and negative attitude. They must think we are all like you, jeesh its a wonder they haven't decided to invade again thinking we are useless dicks like you.

Why would Germany want to invade and gain an extra 65 million useless dicks, they have enough of their own...

Have 4 clients at the minute. Positively useless. If you can see beyond your spite for a minute, I don't talk down the UK, I talk down the idiots in charge of it. I'm much in favour as is the next person for seeing the UK regain confidence. But watching the country you grew up in blaming everyone and everything under the sun is very unattractive and redundant. Perhaps the only way the UK will get on its feet is when it has ran out of others to blame.

Being go between clients here and companies at home is not something easily replaced. You mock and jest as much as you like, it requires someone with knowledge of the local area and language in both countries as well as the engineering niche I specialise. There's not exactly a queue at the door.

The relationships between EU countries are complex and mature. The stewards of the UK only demonstrate incompetence with supporters like yourself only too keen to rally behind them.

I'm quite serious, in years to come the UK is going to be more dependent on expats whom have knowledge of the local area the area the UK has chosen to abandon. A stipend would seem appropriate to those that remain shoring up relationships. Rolls Royce being one I bet you, heck knows what will happen between Derby and Berlin sites.

You can tell Spooter is Scottish he thinks he is due a subsidy even when he doesn't live in the UK.

That pro-Brexit rag the Daily Express ran a poll last week (Tuesday to Thursday with 96,000 responses) but pulled it after it finished as they didn't like the results:

A subsidy suggests a poor expat, consider it more of a retainer for the value of services delivered to the end client. I'm not a greedy sort, shall we say 2%?

2% of your UK tax paid? Filthy lucre from BTL doesn't count.
