Re: What if.

There has already been a net loss of jobs in the UK due to Brexit, this will increase when the transition period is over. This was an inevitable consequence of what the British people voted for. The EU have done what they can to protect the welfare and livelihoods of their member states. I guess it ...

Re: What if.

Every time I go to Europe I wonder why I am coming home. Whilst I realise that being on holiday is different from living there, but generally the quality of life seems better. Having said that the place that I live in the UK is pretty good. The trouble with going to live abroad is which country woul...

Re: Booked something.......

Looks like it should be a great trip, you are a braver man than me, any EU trips are on hold for the moment, although I hope to go to Scotland and the Shetlands next year. Good luck.

Re: EU. In or out?

It does not surprise me. In the last few years whenever I have had the opportunity to go to Europe and met with locals the conversation has almost inevitably turned to Brexit. Whilst most Europeans have some gripes, often about bureaucracy or corruption most think the EU is doing a good job and virt...

Re: How about Helping this chap out
