    • Let me throw more oil on while we await Jase's confirmation that the appearance that he was being disingenuous was mistaken.   Does letting people run here in any way whatsoever resolve the issues in that persons own country? and would they allow our destitute skill-less people entry to their country and feed home and support them from their own resources once the people we vote for in corrupt deceitful outside influenced elections have turned our nation into a bled dry, over-crowded, destitute hell-hole of asset stripped poisoned land and starving children, whether through ideological design or ideological incompetence  ?  (ask Priti Patel for starters) ... particularly if there were thousands of children in their own country being fed from food banks?   and does allowing an open door policy to those claiming oppression mean those people will be generous good people who want to join and add to our society? (ask Abu Hamsa)   Extreme examples, and some might argue those examples knew exactly how to 'manage' in out society - but for me they do demonstrate we need to have a process that integrates immigrants into our society before we can define an immigration policy based on anything more than OUR societies economic and social needs.
    • No I didn’t done it through comparison website unfortunately 
    • To throw oil onto water   I agree in principle to a national wage but question 1 is, at what point would a migrant become eligible for it? On arrival is , in most cases wrong as it encourages economic tourism but if they are genuine refugees it’s different.   I think we all agree ,(well the three of us)  doing away with the hostile environment is a must.  It makes me ashamed to be a human being when I hear some of the rhetoric coming out of many Tories and other right wing mouths. Tell me, do you risk death in a freezer unit because you think staying in your country of origin is really good? 
    • Thank you for your reply....so I have this clear in my mind even if Barclays did now reply to their SAR they would not be able to follow it up with a claim due to being out of time ... the reason I ask is because I would like to push this firm and possibly try a case for negligence for a bit of sport as they clearly have not acted in my best interests....as they are solicitors it makes it even more interesting as a test case
    • No I posted the date of the hearing on the 27th October.   Andy said he would help once we had a date. I now have five weeks left.   Andy if you aren’t prepared to help please do let me know. many thanks

I think that more of the issue is, will the EU want the UK on the UK's terms.


I express my honestly held opinions - they are nothing more or less than that.

... Its just doing some due diligence that makes them seem unusual ...

The UK is in no position to dictate anything to the EU

 

They regard the UK as a minor irritation to be scratched, that is all

 

They pay little attention to individuals with a "Napoleon" complex and self proclaimed Demagogue status

UK is important to EU mostly because of trade and contribution to EU funds. The City of London does a lot of trading which affects the EU and if UK left the EU, some of this trading will be transfered to Frankfurt or Paris.

 

What i want to see is a full analysis of UK in v UK out of the EU. How would it affect UK finances ? What difference would it make to UK citizens living in the UK and currently resident in another EU country.

 

I should imagine that people will be expected to vote without full information and will vote purely based on emotion.


We could do with some help from you.

Funny, I agree with you. I think the Uk is needed by the EU more than the other way around.

It's some of us being more equal than the others that lets the club down.

Good riddance. Means UK taxpayers wont foot the bill on the next collapse of the smoke and mirrors house of cards while the corrupt financial experts take their millions in bonuses and golden parachute severance and enhanced pensions to a tax haven and spend it abroad.

 

Make sure we take back what they owe us before they move - in gold not bank credit notes.

Let's look at one thing in the news today, the Tampax tax. The EU says they are not a necessity. Obviously a rule made up by unmarried men or men who have never had a girlfriend and slaps a 5% tax on them. How disgusting is that and should have every woman crossing the 'OUT' box without having to listen to any other rubbish about staying in or needing any further prompting to vote out.

 

There are countless things like that above that can be cited.

Tampax tax?

 

Is that the best you can come up with??

 

Besides the EU most other countries apply this levy

 

I actually agree myself this levy be removed but that is a decision for the EU Parliament.

 

Perhaps if some of our MEPs actually attend the EU Parliament, let alone propose legislation or even vote on such issues then things might change. Yet when some of our MEPs consider women should be in the home and not in the work place, and be a burden on society especially when pregnant, i very much doubt things will change in the very near future

IMO only a fool would think we are better out than in.

Too many people are swayed by the right wing press with their scare stories of floods of immigrants and loss of sovereignty . People need to be aware that we still have sovereignty , people scream about Human rights but ECHR and the Human Rights Act are not related to being a member of the EU

 

As for the spurious comment on the tampax tax, how did women cope before tampons were invented, the same way that we coped with Nappies and the same way that people coped without toilet role. they are just natural bodily functions although I have to admit i have never had to be bothered with any aspect of a womans cycle .

 

I for one will vote to stay in just as I would have done in 1973 if I had been old enough.

 

We need to remember that we are a tiny island, we do not have an empire and we are deluded if we really think we are serious world players . That doesn't mean I am not proud to be British


Any opinion I give is from personal experience .

In any civilised society it is customary to communicate where any transgressions has been implied . That is so any future transgressions can be avoided.

IMO it would be unwise to take the risk. Some of the investment in the UK may be because we are part of the EU. The City of London does more Euro trading than the rest of EU financial centres combined.

 

I also worry about what happens to UK citizens living in mainland EU. If they register for residency, they get local healthcare, which is free at the point of access, as UK government pays the foreign government an annual amount, as we are in the EU. If this was no longer the case, it might force many pensioners who cannot afford private, to come back to the UK. This could means tens of thousands of vulnerable people returning.

Surely that would also be the same for those EU citizens living in the UK, Uncle B - they too would have to pay for their Health Care over here or force those EU citizens back to their countries of origin ?

I do wish people would research before posting

 

Any EU national staying in a different member state for more that 3 months has to have private medical insurance

 

This health tourism is simply a myth

 

To stay any longer than three months they have to be they have to be: in work; or actively seeking work with a genuine chance of being hired; or be able to show they have enough money not to be a burden on public services.

 

Article 45 TFEU

Article 45 TFEU

 

If you move to Spain for example to retire, you can register as being resident showing your pension earnings etc and once properly registered you can use state healthcare. If you are younger than pensionable age, if you are there more than 3 months, you cannot use the EHIC card. You are expected to register residency properly and pay into their national insurance system if you want to use their state healthcare or provide evidence of private healthcare cover.

 

I suspect Spanish Hospitals are more efficient at invoicing people where needed, than NHS Hospitals. You do read of many tourists to the UK who use NHS while they are here, reporting that neither them or their insurers were invoiced. I have chatted to Americans who cannot believe how relaxed Hospital staff have been in the UK without mentioning payment at all , either direct or via Insurance. The Hospitals in the US are very interested in payment almost immediately after deciding on treatment required.

Article 45 TFEU

 

Where exactly does it say that you have to have private healthcare. It is certainly not true in this country , and I am not saying that is good or bad. I know that for a fact as my Italian BIL has lived here for 15 years or more , and no was not always married to my sister. Requirements on health care and other forms of welfare vary from state to state . the spirit of the EU is that an EU resident should be entitled to the same welfare as a resident . Obviously there are exceptions, i could not go to germany on holiday and claim Unemployment benefit , mind you I am not allowed to travel to germany and claim UK JSA either .

 

The problem with Spain is that when people have accidents or are ill, they are taken to private hospitals and not state run ones, hence the stories of having to pay while in spain, I believe that the Spanish authorities are abusing the system to reduce the cost to the state run health service.

 

I do firmly believe that we are better in than out , that we gain more than we lose and that certain sectors of the media have a massive influence over public opinion but that is one of my crticsims of the so called democracy that we live in, how can unelected people have so much power over us.

 

This is a debate that needs to be had but it needs to be calm, considered and fact based, from what i see there is little useful fact coming from either side and we are being given populist soundbites that make good headlines but in reality have little impact.

 

I have no idea of the answer but I wonder just what % of the health service budget is spent on non british EU nationals and what how does that compare to the costs incurred by british nationnals while on holiday .

 

I actually believe that EU nationals do jobs that too many Brits think are beneath them such as working in McDonalds and other service sectors work . I was on another forum where someone stated that working in McDonalds was beneath them , a man of clear intelligence who went on to say how he had told the OWNER of an Oxfam shop to do something themselves .

 

All jobs have value and if we lived in a civilised society we would all have work in a job that suited our skills which would contribute to benefit the society. Come the glorious day all DM readers would be put up against a wall -conniff you can stand next to my mother :-)
