I don't think they'll kick anyone out. However, I can see them cutting down sharply on EU immigrants while soaking them up from elsewhere. After all, Cameron had 6 years to cut down on non-EU immagration and he doesn't appear to have tried - certainly he didn't have much of an effect. So we might get a severe points system for the EU, with open doors to the rest instead of the opposite which Cameron could have instituted if he'd wanted to.manfred wrote:Yes hombre, but as so often it is easier to target the soft target, so that is what many politicians go for. If the Germans, French or Polish get kicked out, they will go. If you try to kick out the Pakistanis, the chances are they blow things up first. So what will a politician do who wants to be "tough on immigration"? S/he will find groups that will cause the least amount of trouble and be "tough" with them. Kick out a German and the worst you can expect is being called a "Schweinehund" or something, when he is getting on the plane. Kick out a Pakistani and you are not only automatically a racist, but you get a whole community in arms, and several Gaza strips throughout the UK.
However, it is highly unusual in the UK to retro-actively change the law, taking away rights previously given. So, I would expect that those who already have "indefinite leave to remain" in the UK will not suddenly find they are getting asked to pack their bags. Instead, new arrivals will not have such an easy time.
The only thing that would put that in question would be if the EU insisted all the Brits have to leave.
Exactly. Brexit could be somehow hollowed out before formal notice is given. Who knows.manfred wrote:This is not hugely likely, for one simple reason: they have already committed to formally giving notice to leave the EU by the end of this year. After that there is no going back, even if wanted. So if the negotiations are not going her way, she must leave without any deal at all. She cannot change her mind, as far as I know, once notice has been given.
If notice has NOT been given by the new year, then, however, I would agree with you that she is planning to fudge the whole issue.
It would need a shake-up of the EU establishment at least as big as May's shakeup of the UK government - and there's no knowing whether the latter has been enough.Hombre wrote:Another development can occur, where GBR & EU will collude between them to cleanse EU from undesirable immigrants.
GBR plays the bad guy, the anti-immigrant stand (which is true) - the very reason for leaving Eu. EU plays the good guy. "we want to help these refugees to find a better life, BUT cost of splitting us with Brexit is too high, where we face to choose between lose one of the pillars of our union, or appease refugees". We must chose the first option for sake of our collective future.

Nigel Farage suggested that the net immigration rate should be dramatically cut down to 30,000 annually to restore normality.
The general public of the UK has never been happy with the rate of immigration since Tony Blair deliberately opened the floodgates to impoverished Eastern Europeans (when even the EU generally imposed a 7 year wait in the vain hope that their improving economies would stem the flow). Farage merely responded to the public's feelings. Feeling which we now see were correct, when you look at the immense stress on public services we're now facing. Note, by the way, that the Blair government deliberately encouraged mass immigration to "rub people's noses" in "multiculturalism" - i.e. for left-wing political purposes, never mind what the plebs wanted.Nosuperstition wrote:Nigel Farage suggested that the net immigration rate should be dramatically cut down to 30,000 annually to restore normality.
It seems that this politician was instrumental in Brexit by installing migrantphobia in the British people along with promising huge investments in the NHS with amount left of that the U.K parts of when it was a member of E.U.

We pay a large sum of money to Brussels every month. A fraction of that gets re-invested in the UK on project our government cannot decide on.
Our government spends our tax money and if we are unhappy with the way they do that, we can elect another government.
White people have killed far more than any other race. Europeans love murdered each other and glorifies it
