The vast majority of them do it, yes, especially the Romanians. They have no issue coming over here, cramming into a house with 30 other people so their living expenses are almost nothing, working for a while, saving their arses off, and then going home eventually with a lot of cash in hand (exchange rate is a healthy 5:1 because they don't have the Euro).
I35, etc. Yeah, pretty much put a hold on me going into contract work in IT, too. Before that, people were making a killing from contracting.yeah the one guy i spoke to on the tube kept going on about the pound and how they all come there for the pound. even made fun of the eu arrangement because it allows them all entry to the uk and to send pounds home. a few years later a friend of mine who was in construction was complaining about the poor eu countrymen taking up "his" contract work, yes he was foreign(rsa) himself... lol.
a lot of them in trouble now because of that contract work tax thingy that was brought up recently..

This isn't the argument you'd be making at all if the economic case made any sense at all.Yup, Remainers only really think of everything in terms of economic contribution, numbers on an Excel spreadsheet but it goes much deeper than that - the 'politics of community and place' as it called. This article perfectly captures the divergent views of fishing. And yes, the French were particularly driving a hard bargain re fishing despite UK Remainers continually belittling the UK coastal communities.
Reading all the fiercely penned letters to government from various fisheries in the UK complaining about their consignments being stuck in ports and wasting, due to paperwork issues, wondering to myself ... who could have predicted this?
Dutch police have been confiscating truck drivers' lunches if they contain products of animal origin.
Some weird EU law from 2001 that came about because of foot and mouth disease where animal products (meat and dairy) from outside of the union cannot be brought into it.
