    Despite having left the UK post incessantly on UK forums how bad the UK is then wonder why people think you are a twunt.

    Does anyone know what a 'subcard' is? Is it a poor persons 'clubcard'?

    For the people that are not UK nationals and haven’t lived much in their country of origin as well.
    Staying for too long outside of the Uk might leave you without some of the social protections or ability to apply for citizenship.
    So you might not have protections in the country of origin as you haven’t worked there and you won’t qualify in the UK either as with the changing tide they’ll throw you out like a bad tooth soon.

    Or at least that is how I see it.

    Social protection in the UK will always be available in the form of fruit picking work camps.
