Right of Residence

March 3, 2017

David last night on the box was a documentary on the homeless in Cornwall. Most of these persons were drop outs ,drug addicts,alcohol abusers ,mostly British under 30's . Then they interviewed a Polish guy in his 40/50's he was living in a tent and had been for 6 yes 6 feckin years ,when asked why he didn't return to his home country ,he refused to say . Me living in a tent at the side of a woods in Cornwall for 6 wet and miserable years as he was would make me  want to go home ,or am I being stupid ( don't answer that ) What how is he living a fulfilling life ??????

With regards the unelected, over-paid geriatric toadies residing in the Lords quite deliberately opposing the ELECTED government and delaying the wish of the democratic vote of the people by insisting the rights of FOREIGNERS to remain here are paramount, how would they feel / react if the PM gave into them and then the EU refused to allow Brits living / working there  to remain in Europe ? I bet they'd never thought of that - what possible sensible, logical reason can there be to insist foreigners have the right to stay here before a reciprocal agreement is in place for our people ? Hopefully the stupid interference of the Lords will sound the death knell for their institution - if so, it would not only save the tax payer millions but speed up future negotiations ! John (JKW)

To follow on from my previous, now a Commons Select Committee have indicated quite strongly (as the Lords did) that we should legislate that EU citizens residing here should be allowed to stay before such an agreement is reached from those in Brussels. The reasoning ? We should show a lead, which will hopefully (??) ensure the British citizens living in the Euro zone will be allowed to stay there too. What an absolutely blinkered approach ! This Committee also state that we couldn't afford to expel the foreigners because of the work they do (admittedly mostly true), and therefore the EU couldn't expel our people for the same reasons - they seem to forget that the majority of ex pats living in France, Spain etc, are there for the sunshine, mostly retired, and are NOT essential to the medical and service industries as workers & so could be expelled without their loss of  such employees. Furthermore this Committee have brushed aside the fact that a number of the 27 EU countries have indicated they will not back any proposals for allowing Brits to stay in the EU, in the belief that "they'll soon fall into line " - sheer folly IMO, and agreeing to the proposal also removes a major bargaining "chip" that our PM has in negotiating the best deal for us all. Sometimes I seriously wonder whose side some of these MP's & Lords are on - some seem hell bent on making life difficult for all but themselves, with a hidden agenda, or are they just so blind and bigoted not to think with logic & common sense ?  John (JKW)

all this kerfuffle about the term foreigners, if you are not born in the British Isles /United Kingdom then you ARE a foreigner.one of the best ways of giving an example of this, is if you take up residence in Estonia and take dual nationality your issued passport  is red and emblazoned across it in gold lettering at about 150 font is the word "       A L I E N   " this would be more appropriate. Screams unmerciful .
