Brexit

Question

Hello, I am a bit worry with the Brexit...
I am English and I am a teacher and my husband is English too and work for the European Commission...
Its that means that both of us will lose our jobs and that we will have to go back home?

Mark L-W

You may but I would not worry.
The process of Exit will take at least two years and many things are still very uncertain.
Should you choose to stay here, there is no reason why not.
In the mean time have a glass of wine and try not to worry.
Basically we know nothing as yet.

Am I the only one who feels that this referendum is an example of the democratically-mediated dictatorship of the minority that tips the balance every so slightly to trigger far reaching international repercussions?

Why didn't everyone in the UK vote? There was just a 73% turnout at the polls.

Hi David1, you obviously aren't English and I presume you're just trolling. Boring.

@Michele
A 70% turnout is high for any election in UK and 73% is higher than at the most recent general election.

Michele that's 70% of those who registers whic is even less David_1 no one knows I'm sure there will be meetings at the commsios. For the Brits as soon as they figure out what they will do with their staff. I imagine European school will be thinking how they get rid of uk section soon but imagine that just no new class in and those there already have time to graduate so will be before the end of the fix term contract I presume.
If your teaching in a different school then it maybe you will need a permit but I think nothing is know now.

the European schools don't have a UK sections, they have Anglophone sections, which they won't be getting rid of. The English speaking Irish students will still be there and the many students who have duel nationality.

To Cm ......So someone who finds themselves in a situation where their country has placed them in a situation where they are excluded from the society in which they operate are "trolls" .............you are obviously English!!

o sé, read the message again. It would be extremely unlikely that someone with such abysmal level of English would be a) a teacher b) English. "Troll" was the first thing that came to my mind too.
