Expats Going Home

Many of my friends have already gone back to the UK. The last of my friends goes back next week. There are very few British families here now, most have gone home. The older generation are either trying to weather the crisis or they have no choice but to stay because they can't sell their properties. 

It's getting quite dire here jobwise. It's impossible to get employment with a Spanish Company as they tend to ignore foreign applicants. They are patriotic and will only employ Spanish workers. I can't say I blame them but I do tend to think that the British Government's attitude towards fairness to foreign workers is beginning to be a unique one in Europe!


  1. As long as your friends move to the countryside they should be fine. Now Labours' inner cities, no go areas in the main.

  2. I think most of them are moving to Scotland actually to quite good jobs.. so I don't know if that means anything!
