    My bad, I don't seem to read my own posts properly either.

    People will be carrying a worthless blue pice of paper in their pockets that will most likely prevent them to work in any other EU state, require private heath insurance to exist and a glovebox full of carnets and documents to drive across borders.

    Didn't you hear? We're funding the NHS now instead of the EU. How could you miss that, it was on the side of a whacking great red bus ffs

    Everything is intertwined. Without diverging from EU regulation private healthcare will not happen as EU might see it as more unregulated competitive environment. Or people will vote with their feet and go to another EU country for slightly less money but better weather and free healthcare. Not taking into account a potential £150-£300pcm insurance premium per person.

    It is what it is. Never said brexit could not turn to be a success for the economy.
    Improved productivity, attracting businesses, wealth.

    Question is if the benefits of a more productive economy would be passed on to the employees and everyone would prosper not only the select few.
    And if so how much harsher would it get and who will pull the burden in the economy?
    It will be an increased inbalance in the employee-employer relationship considering that people might loose some of the current rights, good private insurance deals will come through employment. Limited options to emigrate(for now).
    Increased competition from oversees workers, lets not forget current legislation is set by EU and creates significantly more friction then the proposed new framework.
    What will you be able to do when businesses take the same approach as with contractors and say: take it or leave it? You will die without health insurance, starve or have to eat bad food and have no option to leave the country? Where is that freedom?

    Status quo and current freedoms in my opinion is the best you could get. And people won’t realise how good they’ve had it before it’s long gone.

    So after being bent over so many times, by your own, why do you think all of a sudden, you’ll get it better?
