GUEST,Musket BS: what concessions has Cameron got (27) RE: BS: what concessions has Cameron got 22 Mar 16


Amazing. It just said that freedom of movement is something to do with providing cheap labour. Considering The EU is about trying to increase prosperity and standards for all within it, however difficult that is to achieve, the concept of cheap labour as a product is a non starter even if the reality has been a period of exactly that as countries play catch up.

Also, immigration is a net provider of GDP, not a cost. Even Farage acknowledges this when addressing people who can count beyond ten without removing their shoes and socks.

Next month I am in The USA to give a paper at a conference. The paperwork involved because I am not just there on holiday is immense, (if I were being paid by The NHS for it, no problems but as the WHO is paying me and compensating my employer, the hoops to jump through are harder than writing the *^%ing thing in the first place. Because of fluctuating exchange rates, the term "being paid" is interesting as I could still be taxed in a way where I lose.

In September, I am presenting something similar in Italy. Just hop on a plane, go, come back. No issue with pay as EU agreements between public sector bodies exist. We have just inherited a share of my husband's father's will in Oldenzaal in The Netherlands, (Kris is Dutch.) No more bureaucracy than if it were here in Scotland.
