You are sat where you are now because of open borders.


I'd disagree. As he has kids and a wife/partner he's have been allowed into Sweden just like the Thai, Brazilians and so on are allowed to.

But it is that low. It's symbolic, but very low financial value. Plus. Why would the eu 27 ever agree a deal with the UK that was better than being a member. The uk was al ... (show full quote)


Being better off isn't always about money. When a teenager leaves home he/she is financially worse off but better off from a qualify of life point of view.

Remain voters really miss the point about Brexit and think it is all about money, racism and hating Europe.

Personally, I like Europe and Europeans but detest the European Union. I'd be happy with the EEC pre-Maastrict.

Cameron tried and failed to get the EU to let us change the law but, surprisingly, the other 27 said no.

Sweden had a similar problem 2 years ago. Is it any surprise that now the UK has announced foreigners must have lived in the UK for 5 years before claiming benefits?

We can do what we like now.

But if you arrive in sweden from within the eu jobless and cashless what do you get from the swedish state, nothing. The uk could have done the same. You get 90days benefits from your homeland whilst job seeking, then shown the door.
