Turmoil at the border!
Over four million people in the EU could be displaced and sent back to where they came from.
• Business would lose skilled employees
The national health service would collapse, being dependent on immigrant staff
• Communities could be devastated
• Families would be separated
• People in the UK from other EU countries (2.9 million) and UK citizens (about 2 m) living elsewhere in the EU could lose their right to stay. There is a rush to apply for UK citizenship.
UK retirees on the Costa Blanca are getting worried about pensions whether they will rise in line with inflation and whether health care will continue subsidised.
This is a worst case scenario but it could happen.
