A rise of £800 million to £43.8 billion is only 0.018%. I know £800 million is such a big number, but in the context of the story, it really isn't.

Of course don't worry. Everything will be fine. The whole world is on its knees begging the UK to make a trade deal with them, expecting nothing in return. Haven't you noticed the panicking Europeans sending secret special envoys to the UK begging them to leave the UK market open for EU goods? I mean look at the numbers - the EU market is in deep recession because of Brexit with much worse to come!

For the immeasurable honor to be allowed to trade with the UK we Europeans will even adapt to British customs and politely say "please" and "thank you" while serving you your afternoon tea. Promised :cool: ;)

I'm expecting the government to say that either we get everything we want, or EU nationals without PR will have to leave the UK.

Well, for better or for worse, the EU holds all of the face cards in this game. They could just say "no" to everything, and the UK would bear the brunt of the suffering. It's not the EU's problem. It's Britain's.

But I don't expect such an obtuse stance. The UK won't be kicking out Europeans and the EU won't be kicking out Brits. Nobody would benefit from that.

There are thousands of detailed agreements that have to arranged. From agriculture to shipping to telecommunications to labour to pensions to ... You name it. The dust won't settle for more than a decade.

What they need to sort out straight away is the big stuff with broad strokes. Trade, immigration, security, etc. And again, it's Britain that has to sort out the details of its own policy. The EU already has all that sorted for itself. So, the burden is about 90% on Britain to sort itself out. And the EU is in the commanding position in the negotiations. They have far less to lose by just saying no.

Sorry, it was a 0.0186% rise. Fixed it in the previous post. Thanks.

Dick. Read what I wrote again.

Now read the first sentences from the link you posted.

EU nationals with a right to permanent residence can stay in the UK after it leaves the EU and enjoy the same rights, a top civil servant has said.
Mark Sedwill said the rights of those granted residence after five years were "quite clear" in law and it amounted to a guarantee of their future status.

But he told MPs the rights of other EU nationals were subject to negotiations on Brexit and the "will of Parliament".

Ministers have been urged not to use EU citizens as "bargaining chips".
My post specifically excluded those with Permanent Residence. You really need to pay attention, Dick.

Ah, there you go. Give 'em all work permits and then let them in. No points system because "it doesn't work". Then the politicians can say they are "controlling immigration" and the people can go to the UK and work as desired.

A distinction without a difference from what we have now. With British citizens needing visas for Europe. We shall see. Maybe. Eventually.

Work permits are temporary residence visas without access to benefits, etc. When the permit expires, holders will have to either renew or return to their country of origin.

Multiply your answer by a hundred.
Still a small amount though, and not likely to last

I see my error now. I was trying to do it in my head.

Thanks. It's 1.86% growth.
