That’s Very Interesting


In the wake of Brexit, the World Economic Forum released a video detailing the 5 EU countries which has the most people living abroad.

 

That’s super interesting. I would have expected, given the rhetoric that we so often hear, that the country with the most people living abroad would have been Romania or Italy. But no, it’s the UK. Did British voters know that, when they voted in the referendum? How is Brexit going to affect those people? And those who voted leave because of the “damned immigrants putting a strain on our economy”, do they also consider their own citizens as unwelcome moochers on the economies of other countries?

Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot. When black, brown or Eastern European people live outside of their own country, they’re immigrants. When white Europeans or Americans live outside of their country, they’re called expats. My bad.
