    Not just in Germany, I know quite a few British people across Europe applying for citizenship where they live and work and plenty of British people in the UK who are looking to move now...As you can see by much of the incomprehensible and the just downright idiotic postings on this forum, it really does look like the UK is seeing brain drain

    Are you saying they are 'Drained Brains?'

    Just makes me chuckle. All this moaning by people that have already decided that the UK wasn't for them.

    Nope, that's the future UK workforce although I suspect that it will probably be managed by non-EU migrants

    Furthermore many of those UK expats are high worth individuals, CEO's of major companies. One of them I know, a director for the EU arm of a Japanese company. At some point or another the money flowing into the UK will water down to such an extent people will hardly believe the compromises they must make for their day to day needs. In fact it is probably already happening.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Isolationist jingoistic belief personified in two neatly sized paragraphs.

    Yes of course it will have a price, Norway for instance pays a huge sum of money to the EU, not discounted like the present UK arrangement



    We will end up paying high fees and having no say at all in the EEA regulations !!

    Makes me laugh that people are so isolationist. Didn't you think that many of these people would have liked to have returned to the UK at some point but now see no future for it? The majority of these people are highly educated professionals who want to broaden their working experience by using their freedom of movement to work in other countries and then, maybe one day, bring this experience to bear working for a UK company in the UK. Obviously now, the countries in the EU will profit from this knowledge base, sad being an isolationist really...

    I'm surprised you have wi-fi in Mrs. Higginbothams guest house with the avocado bathroom down the hall, while ekeing out your contract as 1st line support for Arse-end-of-nowhere Council.
    Hard Brexit now!
