Odense replied to matthewh's topic in Immigration and Visa IssuesThe EU is a club where the labour can go and work in any membership country. So UK citizens can go work in Germany, France or Poland and citizens from these countries can go work in the UK. Under the same conditions as the locals (supposedly). Once Brexit is fully implemented this will probably not be the case anymore (depending on what agreements are made between the UK and EU). That is the reason a Polish carpenter can come and enter the UK system and a Thai or Philippine cannot - they are not in "the club". You can write your MP and see if he/she will campaign to make a similar club with Thailand but I doubt you will have much success. Somewhat related - I wish Denmark would also leave the EU and get free trade agreements instead and I am sure this is a wish shared with many in the EU. Most common people have a hard time remembering when we voted to accept open borders to Eastern European builders and service workers. This has already given Germany the "gift" of working poor people and only the richest 10% benefits from it.
