Brexit voting expats “delighted” that their European nightmare is coming to an end

Post by bindeweede »

IF YOU LOVE THE UK SO MUCH, WHY DON’T YOU GO AND LIVE THERE: The Brexit voting expat community in Europe is getting its dearest wish. They are finally coming home!

The expats have endured years upon years of horrible Spanish sunshine, disgusting picturesque beaches and unthinkable siestas. Now at last they will be able to experience the undiluted joy of damp gloomy days in some godforsaken British town.

And if the returnees are short of the odd bob, I expect they could find some translation work thereby making good use of the fluent Spanish they must obviously have learned in their years abroad.....? :???:

Britons are being accused of 'ignoring' new rules to leave Spain after legislation was passed that would mean those choosing to live "under the radar" could face deportation or fines.

The British community in Spain are allegedly "burying their heads in the sand" over new Brexit rules on residency that come into effect this week.

It comes as Spanish authorities denied reports that police were planning to deport up to 500 Britons in the first week of April.

Instead, Britons most at risk will be those dodging taxes, which is said to be a small fraction of the 300,000-large community.

But those campaigning for Britons to remain in Spains say many are "deliberately" looking to flout the rules in the hope they can slip through the net.

"They are burying their heads in the sand and assuming we’ll be treated differently from other third country nationals, simply because we are British.

"I fear many that have ignored the warnings of the consequences of exceeding a 90-day stay are in for a rude awakening."
