Fun Online Polls: Immigrants, expat's & trade deals.

(Before It's News)

The results to last week’s Fun Online Poll were as follows:

Citizens from other EU Member States currently living in the UK should…

… all get permanent residence visas automatically – 13%
… apply for British citizenship if they want to stay – 11%
… be made to reapply for work permits every few years – 13%
… given the same rights as other EU Member States give UK citizens – 58%
… be told to leave the UK soonest – 4%
Other, please specify – 1%

Good, I was with the majority on that one, I’ve absolutely no grudge against foreigners living here (being half a foreigner myself, married to one etc) and in truth I would not like to see any of them made to leave (apart from the crims and the scroungers), but fair’s fair and all that.

A good turnout of 104 votes, thanks to everybody who took part.

The gimmick being, this is not actually an EU competence – while the UK (or any other non-EU country) cannot strike trade deals with individual EU Member States, it can very much agree specific rules on immigration/emigration with each individual MS.

While we’re on the topic, I’m not sure if we’ve done what kind of post-EU trade deals we’d like to see, so that’s this week’s Fun Online Poll.
