Maybe you can explain why the Brits have to leave Spain post our EU exit?
no one suggested it you tit

Well it is being heavily implied, but with little accurate detail on why, there's no reason at all the Brits in Spain would have to come home.
They would have to go back if they can't afford it on the British rupies

So total conjecture then. I imagine they'll be fine against the Euro for a start. Any actual facts ?
What facts you got a bee in your bonnet about people saying the Brits retirees may have to head back to Grey Britain.

Under what kind of visa will they be able to live in Spain? Old and english isn't a category I believe. There's always the "I'm loaded" kind of visa but it's nor for everyone is it?

Move to Scotland for retirement or Tenby in Wales Bimbo. Plenty of beaches there and you can stay as long as you want.

One that the Spanish will agree with the British, it's in Spain's interests to keep at least some of the million empty apartments with residents in them (of course this is conjecture, as is the opposite argument).

It's a simple question is a member countries immigration policy from non EU countries a matter of EU dictate ? Or is it a countries own business ?

I've no idea how they're going to deal with the Northern Ireland border issue.

It's going to be the Scotland border solution isn't it? Nordies will have to show passports going through Stranraer.

Fair enough. So the UK will have to negociate with every EU country separately for all its retired citizens. I can see the argument for Spain that needs all its resorts filled, but it might not be as convincing for France. The English have been impacting houses prices to absurd levels in the South west. Not to mention possible spite. After all why should EU countries accomodate Uk citizens when they voted out? Petty of course but entirely possible.
We'll see.

It's an EU competency for shengen countries.

It was never an issue as we both signed on at the same time. Now it's an issue. Why do you know so little about this stuff?

An all-Ireland CTA with the shengen/EU border in GB would certainly be agreeable to the Irish government.

Please God all those Brits will leave Spain. They have ruined many towns and villages with their complete lack of class and general ignorance. Such a crude bunch.

Tough.

As the UK Supreme Court ruled today, anything other than a change in sovereignty is strictly a UK parliament matter wrt NI.

Indeed, I'm sure the French want back their young and bright working in London so as to avoid your communist state so they'll play hard ball. Your house prices are still f ing cheap though so can't see that changing much.

As a non eu citizen you apply for a residency in Spain with proof of your pension to your local Spanish consulate. Doesn't sound like an eu thing?

i would be quite content to stay in Catalonia. the biggest problem for now, is the exchange rate, and learning catalan.

was reading a news line this morning about the demise of the euro, as euro transactions in the finance world have fallen off a cliff apparently, so who knows

It would be a delicious ironing though. The DUP support Brexit and end up with an open border between NI and the republic and "border" checks between NI and GB.
