The Non-EU spouse was an agreement with the British Citizen spouse's view. Also added with a complain about the minimum of £18,000 salary the british spouse must have in order her the non-EU spouse to in this country and last but not least, EU citizens do not required a visa like non-EU and spend around £2000 per year to renew their visa. It does NOT cost £2000 per year to renew a spouse visa. Suggest get the correct facts before posting.
Both couple does not live nor work in London.
Effectively, if the british spouse voted for brexit for all the reasons above. Then he clearly did not do his due diligence to outweigh what is better for their situation. If it is about jobs then the most simplest thing is to skill up and if it is for immigration then the British spouse is voting for the non-EU spouse out of UK. Sad for the non-EU spouse to hear when I pointed this out.

Some of these people come to this forum and comment on things they have no clues about, comments which are not even worthy of a response.
It is a very long post, with many points that can be disputed. But the point that is very significantly incorrect is the one quoted above.nachfee wrote:Europeans have far more things in common with other Europeans than with South East Asians, I'm sorry.
A more correct way of formulating that sentence is that the Asians in Birmingham are clearly British.rooibos wrote:The British are clearly Asians. At least here in Birmingham.
I do not see your point. All continental invaders, except that they did not come from Brussels...and the last successful invasion was about a thousand years ago (1066 and all that), as opposed to the continental Europeans marching through each other's country once every few years. I am raking my head to think of the continental European countries who have not been invaded and who have not had their borders changed in the last hundred years. The only two that come to mind are Switzerland and Sweden (and of course the microstates). No wonder they signed up to Schengen. Their borders are so useless they might as well as abolish them.prforyou wrote:the Romans, the Saxons, plus also do not forget the Vikings
I am not saying we are superior. I am saying that we are different. And we need to be treated thus.Obie wrote:There is nothing superior about Britain in comparison to its continental partners.
I don't see how you can condemn the British Empire and praise the Brussels Empire. If you are being ruled by a country whose interests are not aligned to yours, I would have thought that you would have sided with the colonised, whether it was Kenya (ruled by the British) or the UK (ruled by Brussels). Incidentally, it is fairly obvious to any student of European history that the EU itself is the successor empire to t he Roman and Holy Roman Empires. Thence the significance of the Treaty of Rome, just as the A8 accession treaties were signed in the Stoa in Athens, to symbolise the democracy of the new member-states.Obie wrote:I know there are empire mentality still present
It was people from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh which fought and died with the British during the World War to defend this country. What have the Europeans ever done for Britain that they suddenly have more in common with us?nachfee wrote:Europeans have far more things in common with other Europeans than with South East Asians, I'm sorry

After Brexit Britain should give priority to ties with these countries and the other Commonwealth countries.
Indeed. Polish intelligence played a vital role in breaking the Enigma code and thus helped change the course of WWII. The French Maquis distracted the German Army and helped in the D-Day landings.Wanderer wrote:Not forgetting the French, Poles, Czechs, Greeks, Belgians, Soviets and many others......
