    The clue's in the name, 'no claims'. Not sure how you manage to qualify, unless you drove away very quickly in your seriously damaged what-used-to-be-a-car...

    The other guilty party who was responsible for causing accident paid in full damages including my excess, insurance company had to file court case tho because Hastings allegedly are arseholes who don’t pay up when asked nicely.

    I’ve got protected no claims anyway, fooked up Mor Onic system pf car insurance in this country - NCB linked to 1 car, rather than driver WTF

    Default And some people believed the Brexit lies

    And some people believed the Brexit lies

    Reasons to leave the EU, objections answered and alternatives |
    Objection 11: British expats living in EU countries and EU citizens living in the UK would lose out
    This claim is not grounded in legal fact, as the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties 1969 contains articles that are based on ‘acquired rights’, which individuals build up over time and hold despite any changes in future treaties enacted by their nation.

    The cost of healthcare abroad is provided by the NHS not the EU as some people mistakenly believe. So this is not an issue either.

    For more details see Emigration: Why British expats have nothing to fear from Brexit

    Objection 12: Loss of freedom of movement of people between UK and other EU states
    Obviously this is of particular concern to UK citizens living in other EU states, or those who desire to live in other EU states, for example students and pensioners.

    However, it is possible that the UK would join EFTA and remain in the EEA or have an implementation period, after leaving the EU. All EFTA countries have the same freedom of movement rules as EU countries. Assuming the UK remains in the EEA, freedom of movement would be unaffected.

    Even if the UK does not remain in the EEA following Brexit, or uses this as a stepping stone to later full UK independence (with trading agreements with the EU), it is entirely possible that the UK could negotiate free trade with the UK which may include a freedom of movement agreement with the EU, as Switzerland has done.

    What would happen if you own a chalet in Switzerland and a house or two in your name in the UK?

    Well, there's always the twisted take on it...


    It's not a new rule.
    Expat = immigrant.
    It's the will of the Wailers, remember?
