So, I've received an email from an agent I'm dealing with about house buying in France.

It has been announced that after 31st December, to be able to move to France, you will need to speak French to A2 level, earn a minimum of 1500 euros a month & take out private health care. Before 31st December you don't need any of the above.

All because of Brexit.


Well done.
Wait, you're saying that to live in France you have to be able to speak French?

And this is your evidence that Brexit is a bad thing?

You'll be telling us the Earth is flat next
Come on you don’t think Gaz is that silly, oh no wait...

what I do not know is whether this is basically a french law or basically an EU regulation.

I do understand that in Spain some people are limited as to how long they can stay in second homes each year

I similar principle applies in Austria I believe.

If this IS an EU regulation (and I genuinely do not know) then it could well be one of many privileges that we have come to take for granted , which most of us do not know about, and which are now to be lost to us on dec31

When people say they knew exactly what they were voting for , it is clear that many people did not understand all the benefits of the EU

We will always get those who say "I knew exactly what I wanted and that is what we are now getting". Most of them go by the Cummings slogans and little else.

As a measure of their understanding I usually ask them to please name 5 things/privileges/benefits that we will be losing when w actually go on 31 DEC

Nobody has ever been able to name 5 to me . I have asked this question before on this website. As a measure of the deep thinking I was once toldon this website that what I actually meant was to ask to name 5 benefits/ privileges that we will gain when we leave . !!!

This demonstrates that they probably did not have an informed and balanced view. Slogans are much easier.

Bliar’s lies cost thousands of lives, Boris has followed leading scientists advice, if that makes him guilty, I’m guilty of starting the Second World War

Johnson chose to not take the virus seriously and went on holiday

He said let's take it on the chin(dunkirk spirit)

He refused to show what the scientific evidence was

He was slow and lazy and surrounded by incompetent ministers and advisers at every point

Science does not change when it crosses borders

Germany managed to restrict deaths below 10k

We are champions of europe

nothing to do with Boris and their R value is much higher than ours at the moment

not a lie, but only in terms of numbers if you use deaths per 100,000 we are behind Belgium, if you use deaths by population per square mile then Sweden beats us hands down

Pathetic response

If our only claim in our response to the virus is that by some measures we manage to be only the second worst in europe, then it shows just how incompetent our government has been
It's just as wellweve taken back control

I have continually spoken of incompetence lack of sc rutiny

A ttack on democracy and lack of transparency as well as the stream of obfuscation and lies

If you don't see all these it is because your mind is so closed

I am sure it was you but could easily have been Gaz or WhiteG, have named about five members of this government as incompetent and lying about figures, of deaths, tests, and buses involved in Brexit. You, I'm sure, have said that people who voted for Johnson were naive and misled. I think that's a fair assessment of things you have said or your clique have said. Getting upset that a moderator deletes some or part of your posts, just shows he is doing his job, his politics don't come into this, he has deleted many of my posts, but unlike you I don't get my knickers in a twist, you just need to grow a pair (although I fear that last bit may get deleted)

never once in my life have I been in a clique. that is why I have sat as an independent for many years


there are a lot more than five members of this government who have shown themselves as incompetent, liars and sycophants

just this week, FL, Raab , Jenrick, Patel, Coffey, whately, and thats without thinking


if he were doing his job then he would not be upset when the tories are shown to be clowns

i dont get upset about people who cannot look beyond their nose


there is no doubt that many who voted for brexit were misled by lying slogans
