British expats in Spain who have failed to register as residents face deportation due to Brexit.

[register as resident = liable for tax]

The Remainers can't have been all that committed - I don't see any great hurry to start the REJOIN campaign.
Quite enough hubbub from the 'winners' without starting a rejoin campaign thanks.

Maybe in the future but I doubt it, just have to be content with the situation.
I don't think that enabling a few wealthy ex-pats to live the life of Riley on the Costa del Sol is sufficient incentive to rejoin.
We kept our UK passports but have Portuguese permanent residency. We are legal, pay all taxes, have access to Pguese health care and prescriptions. Exchanged driving licence and have registered for new ID cards. If you are legal no problems
//The Remainers can't have been all that committed - I don't see any great hurry to start the REJOIN campaign.//

Seriously? We've had years of Brexiteers snarling at us to respect the "will of the people", now you're saying that by doing that, we lack conviction? No win scenario for remainers really, isn't it?
//Not if we were EU members.//

Indeed not. One small advantage for a very small minority of the population. For many people who gave it any thought, the question of EU membership was really a balancing act between the advantages (of which there were undoubtedly a few) and the disadvantages (of which there were equally undoubtedly a few - I'll put it no stronger than that for the sake of balance). If you believed the former outweighed the latter then remaining was for you. Vice versa then leaving was your option.

For me personally there was never any doubt about which way I would vote. I made up my mind in 1992 and nothing that happened between then and 2016 changed my mind. In fact, particularly after 2009, my resolve to vote to leave was even stiffer. Nothing that has happened since 2016 has caused me any regret although my preferred option of leaving with no agreement is now seeming more likely to have been the best course of action. Quite honestly, the likelihood of a small number of ex-pats having to up sticks from Spain and return to the UK did not even feature in my pros and cons exercise.

//Looks like NJ might become a Remainer after all.//

There is more chance of me winning the Olympic Gold medal for the 100m than that.
tongue firmly in cheek Mozz. Of course REJOIN will only get going when/if we (the country) verges on bankruptcy as a result of leaving.
The great thing about finally having left is that actually wanting to rejoin cannot be dismissed as defying the will of the people ;-)
//...tongue firmly in cheek Mozz. Of course REJOIN will only get going when/if we (the country) verges on bankruptcy as a result of leaving.//

And since membership of the EU cost us squillions of pounds over forty years, rejoining would hardly be likely to stave off any impending bankruptcy.
I could write a book on the advantages of being within the EU.

NJ admits there are few disadvantages – looks like he’s going to win the 100m in Tokyo.
chiina, i wish you would give yourself best answer :)

I think you're the only one that 'got' it bednobs. Perhaps I should add the video clip?

Just had a very interesting conversation with an ex Pat friend, I asked Was he worried ? His answer was
Worrying never changed the face of history , he’s in the process of applying for residency in Lanzarote
it made me laugh out loud china :)
Since a large number of posters on here moan day in and say out about illegal immigrants caning the system, and saying they should pay their way, it's hardly unreasonable for other countries to practice what the moaners preach is it?

If you live in a country you should pay your way into its systems and economic support, that's only right and fair.

The idea that a few ex-pats feel they should have a swerve simply because they always have, is not a sustainable argument.

Read the whole paragraph, Hymie.

If I had known you wanted some adulation for your answer I would have fawned all over it.
NJ – well you said of the disadvantages that there were ‘equally undoubtedly a few’.
I don’t think you can claim that I have miss-quoted you based on that.
You are aware that if you want to go live in the EU there are ways and means of doing so, Hymie?
I want all UK citizens to have the advantages that being within the UK offers – not just me.
