What will happen to Expats post Brexit ?

Yes, apparently you have to swear alleigance but according to the Consul, admittedly some years ago the Brits only recognise that if you do it in front of them. So de facto you can say one thing to the Spanish (crossing fingers obviously) and still retain Brit passport.
This may have changed so I better find out.
I am far from being an expert BUT, how would the Spanish know if you did retain a UK passport as it appears that the Brits have little idea of who lives here and who has a passport?
 
How on earth did we manage to travel around Europe before "Freedom Of Movement" - Oh wait
war :)

On a serious note the level of f**kmuppetry exhibited by some people makes you think that they think they'll be death squads hunting ex pats down
 
Do you take the winter fuel allowance and pop back the the UK when you need to use the NHS?
This would cover at least 85% of the expat population between alicante and torrevieja, expect to see a mass exodus in the la marina area pretty soon,all those unemmployed estate agents and master tradesmen;)
 
Seems very clear really if you leave the UK to live in another country and you adopt the culture, become a citizen and settle, of course setting an example to the natives or you just piss about on some sort of extended holiday moaning about the wrong bacon and funny tasting water.
 
It would be a bit of a cheek to charge germans,french or spanish visitors for emergency nhs treatment, between june and september,spanish hospitals on the costa del bradford have to take on 100,s of extra staff, to cover the influx of uk tourists requiring emergencyy knee and hip replacements,diverse bavarian hospitals have the same sort of problem with tourists requiring orthaepaedic surgery.

Easier said than done. Most expats (or immigrants to pacify some of the rabidouts) live in Spain.
You require continuous residency for 10 years or more, have to show a fluent knowledge of the Spanish language, pass a test on history and culture of Spain in Spanish and show integration into the Spanish life like being a member of a neighbourhood group or citizens assistance organisation.
You also have to give up your British nationality.

Expats (or immigrants again) are supposed to get charged unless they are over pensionable age and have an S1 form which means they have paid UK NI for at least 35 years (which is pretty fair).
The fault is in the NHS not collecting payments because it's beneath them to charge for medical cover.

To be fair , without the touristo's dosh, most of Spain, Greece , etc, would have stayed exactly how they were in the 1900's ...run down, dusty, uneconomical , feudal like shitholes...

It doesn't and never will excuse Brits or anyone else going over there acting like uncouth, ignorant tw@ts but if the 'Victims' of this 'summer invasion' felt that strongly, they could always shut down their restaurants, Hotels, hire shops and beach activity stalls, and go back to sitting in the sun drinking coffeee and doing feck all while enjoying the pleasures of having no fecking money....it worked in Greece - oh wait!

Unfortunately, having to put up with Foreign louts or just stuck up faux posh cnuts who attempt to lord it over you is part of the game if you want the 'olly dey' euro's. .....just like when they charge you as a visitor 10 - 15 times the going rate for everyday items or the food you eat, etc.

All part of the game....feel free to step off that hamster wheel anytime you like.

They should put a closely watched Nigerian in charge of collecting NHS fees ..no fecker would even get in the Hospital without 5 minutes of shouting before flashing the cash - Tribal favouritism aside ;-)
