    Just FYI, speeding to the Tesco doughnut counter at double-speed on your scooter doesn't count as exercise.

    Making wild unverifiable assumptions about someone you have never met does not increase your stamina or strength one iota.

    Nor does it improve your physique, nor diminish mine.

    But if it makes you feel better about your weedy frame to fantasize about some alternative universe in which you are not roundly scorned for being a thin yoghurt, then please, do carry on.

    Ok makes sense, so glad the ex spurts are here.

    Maybe this is why tax take is down?

    How EU migrants avoid tax in UK - Telegraph
    Social security (e.g. National Insurance) in the UK is one of the lowest in the EU. The Social Security rate in Romania is 39.95%, quite a bit higher than in the UK, but a good portion of it goes towards state pension (everybody has their own individual state pension account) and state pension payouts are far higher than in the UK.

    Income tax is a few percent lower than in the UK but not much, and they can't escape paying UK income tax anyway unless they only work in the UK for a few months.

    Not all will be able to move, some will have no choice but to leave (as they get transferred abroad) and some who don't like what the UK is becoming will leave voluntarily.
    One parent at the lad's school told me "the social contract whereby I paid loads of tax to prop up the country is over, its every man for himself".
    He's moving his business to Europe - I know several other people doing that.
    I know a few small business owners who used to serve all of the EU from the UK. They are now setting up new companies elsewhere in the EU to keep serving EU customers. All but one is keeping their UK company, but only as a regional subsidiary to serve the UK itself.

    No it wasn't. Remember that Ireland voted twice on the Lisbon treaty? British media reported about it that Ireland was forced to vote again and again until they came up with the right answer.

    Ireland initially rejected the treaty because they, among other things, wanted to ensure that EU defence could only be used for defence and not for attack purposes. The treaty was amended and they were then asked how they liked it now, and they approved.

    we left Essen at about 20:30 Saturday evening and took the Frankfurt -> Nurnberg road and got the taxi up to to cruising speed

    and you wouldn't believe it, literally every 5 minutes we passed either a UK registered car/van/car-with-trailer/van-with-trailer or a group of them together, and these weren't a few Brits going on holiday, these cars and trailers were loaded to the gunwales.

    These were people migrating, moving their home.

    Where are they all going ? Where are they from ? They were heading east, our guess was they are heading to Slovakia/Romania/Bulgaria. They weren't Polish because it's the wrong direction for Poland.

    Would be interesting to see if there are any statistics.

    Begs the question though, who of the indigenous population is going to roll up their sleeves and do the jobs these people did for the money they were paid ?

    Milan.
    The good will stay and the bad will go, force the English into work no benefits.
