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

[register as resident = liable for tax]

Unfortunately I don’t think many would read my book on the advantages of being a member of the EU. That said, over the coming years you can bet I will be responding to posts (such as this) pointing out reasons why we should not have left.

It is very unfortunate that covid came along – otherwise it would be much easier to gauge the impact (of leaving).
The UK’s Office for Budget Responsibility has estimated the long-term economic hit (due to covid) to be 3%; in comparison they have estimated the long-term economic hit due to Brexit to be 4%.
davebro: "And the UK has given "settled" status to over 4 million EU nationals apparently. Are we mugs or what? " - not sure how securing taxation income from 4 million established residents makes us "mugs".
//...in comparison they have estimated the long-term economic hit due to Brexit to be 4%.//

Well the OBR is not renowned for the accuracy of its forecasts. However, if it turns out to be correct, it seems like money well spent to me.

The thrust of your argument on this particular topic seems to be that because a few ex-pats who could not be bothered to register their affairs properly in a foreign country may be thrown out, the UK was foolish to leave the EU. You support this by saying that had we remained in the EU, they would not have been forced to leave. Doesn't seem much of an argument to me.
Could they claim "political asylum" there Judge?
They could say that the Brexiteers were going to mock them and make fun of them. Be the first truthful thing that some of them have said for years as well.
NJ has said that an economic hit of 4% is a price worth paying to leaving the EU – believe me, if 50% of the UK population were to die as a result (of Brexit) the Brexteers would claim it a price worth paying.

If I recall correctly, Judge, it made no difference to you how much it cost because it was a matter of principle.
I can’t believe that anyone who was taking advantage of the fact that being within the EU allows them to live in any EU country, would vote leave – just how stupid are these people?

Why should I believe you when you sound like an idiot?
You should believe me because no matter what detrimental effects the UK suffers as a result of Brexit, NJ will claim it a price worth paying (any advance on 4%?).
what if it's not detrimental at all hymie, would that disappoint you?
the EUSSR will be down £350m a week for a start.
Ah yes, the number on the side of red bus.
I really can’t think of any plus reasons for leaving the EU.

I have spoken to many people who gave spurious reasons for voting leave; one colleague of mine said that his reason for voting leave was that he could not get his children into the local school of his choice.
Quite what the incompetence of the local education authority had to do with the EU was beyond me.
It can be difficult to organise all sorts of services, including education, when up to 550m people have a perfect right to wash up on your doorstep whenever the notion grabs them.
You should try to open your heart and mind to other people's problems/views, hymie. Dismissing your colleague like that without any attempt to understand him shows you up for what you are.
Well said,couldn't have put it better myself.
That's to spicerack.
//If I recall correctly, Judge, it made no difference to you how much it cost because it was a matter of principle.//

How much it was likely to cost - a crucial difference. I believe it is unlikely to cost much in the long term at al and in fact I believe the UK will be far better off once it has weaned itself off dealing with businesses in countries that are covered by the EU's protection racket (which it quaintly calls its "Single Market").

I won't comment on the prospect of 50% of the population dying (only to say that many of them seem to have better prospects of surviving under the UK's Covid vaccine procurement system - which some may have died without - than they may have fared under the EU's disastrous attempts). But let's not get too bogged down. We've left, that's the main thing.
Oh well, now it is the fault of the EU that some of our local education authorities are incompetent.

If I had known that the reason the UK government is so incompetent, is the fault of the EU – I would have voted leave too.
