I hope all those who haven’t registered yet to vote in the upcoming referendum will do so, the sooner the better. It is very easy to do, taking very little time. I did mine a week or so ago. You can even email the vote, if you don’t trust the post.
I’m not sure if people have thought about what would happen to us pensioners with regards to yearly increases (we have already lost the heating allowance without a bye or leave).
What next? The NHS is very important if, like me, you never seem to be out of the doctor’s, or at the hospital for appointments. How that will affect us is anyone’s guess.
I can’t say about child allowance, but I imagine that too will be taken away.
A lot of people will argue that we chose to move to warmer climes; and they are right, but that doesn’t mean to say we didn’t pay into the system all our working lives.
Register now, have your say. Coming out of the EU could be disastrous for us ex-pats. And remember, safety in numbers!
