It is all on record, just look it up.

YOU read it! I added the point regarding travellers FROM the UK ((In 1980s)

Are you incapable of realising that other countries have problems with terrorism and have appropriate measures for security---visas--.

My post concerned the introduction of visas for British people travelling TO a non-EU country, travelling FROM the UK.
Should I repeat it visas for British people travelling TO a Commonwealth country FROM the UK.

What has your post got to do with the UK and the EU, nothing.
Whereas the various immigration control acts that you complain about because they do not apply to EU migrants whose countries we have a very different relationship are relevant to a post EU, UK.
The majority of those who voted leave and yes some who voted remain would like to see the equality you seek implemented.

My post had to do with the question of 'visas' which was being discussed.
(This is an expat Forum --different posters have different experiences in different countries.)

I have never complained about immigration control Acts, just pointed out that they exist.

Well, I'm no longer an ex-pat little-person and can do something about it. I can vote for Labour in the election which will be held in the aftermath of May's stabbing back incident next month.

Why not invite them to join? Many are of German ancestry, many speak German. I'm sure they would be happy to get all the subsidies the EU dishes out and this forum could talk about a 'Namibia model'.

You mean the subsidies the UK currently enjoys but which the government has not promised will continue.
Less than 50,000 out of a population of over 2 million are of German descent in Namibia.

Trump is of my friends list after this one :

US Bombardier ruling: Theresa May 'bitterly disappointed' at Trump administration tariff decision | The Independent

Thank goodness we have the DUP to urge May to call her ''special relationship'' ...
Anyway, I know this is between Canada and USA, but this is exactly what Trump means by America first. What will this mean to the new and exclusive trade deal with the UK ? Is this a taste of what is to come ... One has to assume Mr Fox will do his work !

Expats? We're immigrants, and in various countries around the world there are forum threads just like this one devoted to discussing how we should be controlled, how undesirable our foreign customs are, how many relatives we try to bring with us, and how it was better in the 1950s.

Agree with you apart from the last one! :lol:

And all this time, I was of the impression Britain was embracing protectionism (except when others engage in it of course).

For those expecting the "special relationship" to "save" England Britain from itself, there's your sign.
