If the deal goes through, then everything stays the same, IE status quo, until 31 December 2020, the transition period. By this time, fingers crossed, we will have negotiated a new relationship with EU.

Seems to me that the mental acuity of the average Brexiteer would preclude the ability to conceive of such a scheme!

Ha, you have overlooked the fact that when there is money involved, especially free/inherited money, peoples mental capacity and strategic planning improve immensely.

The UK Government has agreed with the EU that after Brexit UK citizens will not need a visa, but that is a Schengen visa which is only valid for 90 days. They will have to go through passport control on arrival and departure just as all "foreigners" have always done, and have their passports stamped.

This issue does not seem to have been addressed by the UK government in their Brexit advice as they have concentrated on two simple cases. They are the rules for visitors (holiday makers) and the rules for residents. The missing part is concerning the many people who have holiday homes in Spain and visit in the winter for far more than 90 days. They may well have to spend 90 days here in the winter (great) and 90 days in summer (not so good!) to stay within the Schengen rules.
I have attended a Brexit info event held by the British embassy and an official of the Austrian Min. of the Interior. The Austrian official pointed out that tourists can only stay for 90 days, holiday home or not. Many Brits have 2nd homes in Austria. If you are not a resident, you are a tourist. Same for all Schengen.
From what I read in your comment and comparing with info I was given, rules seem to be same within all Schengen area.
Another point which was made was to carry residence certificate on entry when coming from overseas as proof of residency. Otherwise you get a 90 day stamp. And we would not necessarily be allowed to enter via a neighboring country.
These rules would apply immediately (next day) in no deal event only.

No "Brexit deal" has been agreed. Despite media claims.

Chrisajolly should remember that 50 percent of the population is below average intelligence.

Considering the average intelligence on an IQ test is 100 then 85 to 115 - Two thirds of us have an IQ in this range:. Over 115 - Only a third of people have an IQ this high. Over 120 - Only 9% of people have an IQ this high. Over 125 which I am one would consider your reply rather inaccurate. But what has that got to do with Brexit deal agreed?

I think you're being over generous here.
It's more like half of 50 percent of the population. :-)

Another assumption? Strangely enough I have and as par for the course Remainers have to make derogatory statements about many millions of people, not many of whom they know. Could mob mentality also apply to those who voted to Remain...no! Of course not!

1. There will be no derogatory comments on leavers and remainers. What is past is past and no amount of your bickering can change this.
2. Be factual, provide evidence when possible.
3. Be respectful, no name calling etc

Very simple basic rules which each and everyone of you are capable of keeping when in the right frame of mind, however, Brexit appears to bring out the inner petulant child which is no longer going to be tolerated.

Any posts that do not adhere to these rules will be deleted. Members who repeatedly cause difficulties will be removed from the forum.

A gentle reminder about taking part in Brexit discussions. Please do not go down the path that several of you are currently taking because I do not want to have to start deleting or denying people the right to an intelligent conversation but if forced to I will be stringent.

Chrisnjolly points out that 17 million voted tro leave

I pointed out that 50 percent of the populace are below average. Bell Curve ? Normal distribution ?

Intersing points, if they were not so misguided. I dont need to know every person in mob to be able to recognise mob.
Extract from Oxford dictionary:
"A group of 3 or more persons, who act with a negative group conscience to show strength in numbers."
And this is as far as I am willing to go wasting my energy on this pointless subject.
