I think you will find that most ex-pats pay some tax in the UK. The fuel allowance is not a benefit in the way that housing benefit etc. is dished out.

What I do think is unfair is the high number of people claiming invalidity benefit whilst living in Spain. A large number of them who are working, golfing etc. There is no way of checking up on them.

i didn’t think you could actually claim and live outside the country.
