Open Europe – The Telegraph reports that Eurostat figures suggest fewer than 300,000 Britons are working in the EU compared with just over one million of their European counterparts working here, despite Gordon Brown’s previous claims that migratory flows are equal in both directions.
There are six million Britons living abroad, most of them working. The figures given mean that maybe only 10% of them choose EU countries to go and work in. So much for the EU being being our key partners.
The EU is a sideshow. The best opportunities are elsewhere. If British workers know that, why doesn’t its governmment?
