    British pensioners rushing to settle in EU countries ahead of Brexit

    British pensioners and people taking early retirement are flocking to settle in European countries ahead of Brexit, amid fears this will become more difficult once freedom of movement ends.

    With the clock ticking on the UKs departure from the European Union, a company that helps those making the move to the continent said the number of enquiries it was handling each month about relocating to Spain, France and Portugal had doubled.

    I can understand why the retiring Brits might want to do this as movement between Britain and the EU might become very hard to do after Brexit.

    Another thing that was in the news last week that is connected with this is the fact that many more Brits at home and abroad that have families in the Republic of Ireland are now giving up their British passports and applying for Irish ones.

    With The possible changes in our way of life after Brexit, it is not surprising that people want to get past these problems before they happen.

    I also see why some people might want to change their British passport for an Irish one as the Irish border after Brexit would have to be closed with powers in place to stop it from becoming an immigration back-door to Britain via the ROI.

    Of course these are just panic action as none of these people know what is going to be the result of the Brexit negotiations.

    Trying to short circuit what is going to happen is a silly think to do.

    If I was still able-bodied and about 20 years younger, I'd be back off to Brittany, where my family came from.

    Many Brits who have British passports but have family in The Irish Republic are now making application for Irish passports for the exact-same reason.
