I’ve never been very political vocally, life’s too short living in this fabulous environment. But I have got a little passionate about the UK’s referendum on staying or leaving Europe.
It started me thinking what if the UK pulls out, how might that affect me?
I, like many other expats, enjoy free health care through the Spanish system which is funded by the UK’s NHS – would this stop?
My car insurance has a green card which allows me protective driving throughout Europe – would it cover me in the UK?
I have bought many items from the UK and of course because it is part of the EU, there is no customs charge when they arrive in Spain – would this change?
I’m sure there are other issues that might surface if the UK withdraws – this is just my initial observations.
