Obviously you are not on a frozen pension.

 

Ian Blackford criticised the lack of consistency of treatment of overseas British pensioners. Pointing out anomalies arising from historic bilateral deals and pointing out that there was no need for new bilateral agreements for the government to take action. He also raised the possible danger for the 400,000 UK pensioners living in the EU, who may find themselves with a frozen pension if Britain votes to leave the European Union in June.

I'm not drawing a pension, yet! But when I do, living in Thailand, it will be frozen, irrespective of what happens with Brexit.

There will be no downside to Brexit, only considerable upside. David Davis   The day after we vote to leave we hold all the cards and can choose the path we want. Michael Gove

Why should the EU negotiate with an ex-member, that voted to leave ? They should let Britain stand outside in the cold for twenty or twenty-five years. Then maybe let them back in, if they ask nicely.

Hilarious so if  those 27  countries  all had an 3  trillion economy it should   be  81   trillion instead of the paltry 18.4  trillion

You are quoting populist newspaper spreading false rumours. Honestly even calling this "newspaper" a newspaper is already a joke.

 

18% of Dutch people favour leaving the EU. A couple of % has no opinion, and the other ones are against.

 

 

 

 

The UK remain lot use links from UK rags.....😂

It is alarming that people who read this "newspaper" have the right to vote.

 

In fact, they should put people like this on an island and not let them go for the rest of their lives.

 

Brexit is not such a bad idea at all.

And it will remain frozen unless other MP's like Ian Blackford stand against the injustice.

Of course to some, loss of income will take second place to bigotry.

I applaud his speech. Pity it took Brexit to recognise the injustices, otherwise he would likely have never come out of the closet. He had to use examples of the likes of us in Thailand, so that he could raise / emphasise the subject, to ultimately substantiate his concerns about Brexit, and the Brits living in the EU. Never heard a peep out him prior to Brexit.

 

However, you have used this link completely out of context with my comment being about his backdoor negotiations colluding with the EU, to frustrate Brexit.

A populist Mickey Mouse paper quoting a rightwing populist and all those Brexiteers who don’t read past the clickbait headline get wet between their legs 😂

"Never heard a peep out him prior to Brexit."

 

You obviously never bothered to read the link, dated March 2016, and not the first time he spoke on the matter.

Ian Blackford along with 58 others were elected to speak in Westminster on behalf of the Scottish constituencies, the SNP has 47 of the 59 seats. MP's have a responsibility to those that elected them but It obviously escaped your notice that the people of Scotland voted against brexit.

 

There have only ever been 3 national referendums, 1975 - 67.23% in favour, 2011 - 67.9%  against, and 2016 - 51.89% leave.

The 2016 result was borderline and as such the decision will be an albatross around the neck of the UK for years. Make no mistake, for the UK it is the beginning of the end.
