    The Spanish prime minister has become the latest EU leader to warn that a vote by the UK to leave the bloc will have consequences for Britons wanting to travel or work in continental Europe.

    Mariano Rajoy said on Wednesday night that Brexit would be “very negative for British citizens” who would lose their right to live, work and invest freely in EU countries.

    Hi Mark,

    For those of us who don’t subscribe to the FT, is there any way of getting to key points of the article ?

    I imagine that copyright issues prevent you from doing a copy /paste.

    Thanks,,

    Why the sudden interest in the words of Rajoy? He is obviously part of Cameron’s rent-a-team, recruited to persuade British expats in Spain to vote in favour of Remain . If thousands of Russians can buy property and even live in Spain, why should the Brits have to worry? Besides, the Spanish economy is so fragile at the moment, and will remain so for many years to come, that a mass sell out by Brits would tip it the wrong way. No Spanish PM would risk that for zero gain!

    Rahoy is not very popular in Spain. Asnar  was a far better leader of Party Popular. Rahoy clutches to any straw that’s offered him like when Cameron and Osborne connive with him and he sirs up Nationalist feeling against us and stirs up trouble around Gibraltar. No Residente Uk owners have no problem provided they file annually as such  pay the minute tax and stay within 182 days in Spain. People who live there illegally should just remember the law is the law and as everywhere you run the risk of a penalty if you get caught. Naturally if we Leave EU we will only have the protection provided by being members of European  Economic Area and so UK citizens who are currently there and Resident All year round  could find it less easy but it may not be generally so if you playing by the rules. If you haven’t got a Residencia maybe get one quickly just in case it may give you 5 years extra security. My personal opinion is if you are legally in Spain and paying your dues the Spanish authorities need money and I would be very surprised if Rahoy would get away with chucking people out. The Party Popular is standing again under Rahoy for re-election on 26th June – if there is little change in the result his days are numbered and that would probably be the best outcome.

    If we did leave who will be next? There are many people in not only Spain but inFrance Italy Greece and Germany who who are sick to death of Unelected EU Presidents and  control over national affairs. Many want their national currencies back so they can get their economies moving again and stop the suffering of so many unemployed young people.Above all they like us want control back over their borders so they can admit who they want to and require migrants who are not to return to their own country or another country that will accept them and when the message is got through many will weigh up their chances before making risky costly journeys – money better spent.

    The. European Health Card is not limited to EU members – it is also available to members of the. European Economic Area in which we would remain  along with Switzerland and Norway.
