On the subject of pensions and brexit,I lived and worked in the Netherlands,paying tax(sometimes as high as 50 %) and contributing to the national pension.
After this none sense has ran its course I could very likely loose my right to a small Dutch pension and may not have paid enough contributions to get a full Uk one.
At the moment nobody nos what will happen.

Hi Simon,

Nobody knows how it will all pan out, least of all those in charge...

If you don't have enough UK contributions for a full UK pension, one gets a "top up" of "pension credit" to bring the total pension income up to the basic pension level. At least that is the case currently.

Where are you now in India, how is it going for you this trip, where will you spend new years?

Ed.

I guess that any reduction in number of job seekers means less competition for jobs... But some are going to be nearer the top of the heap than others, and if Britain really is stepping back fifty years, I fear that colour will count, whatever the law says.

I have not seen any news for a week, so have no idea of the current situation with May, her party, the rest of parliament, and those negotiations. Back in the summer, my Brexit friend was saying that the deals were going to leave Britain worse off . Well, she voted for less favourable relations with Britain's major trade parties, so what else does she expect? I suppose: the Rule Britannia fantasy that she was sold.

My entirely selfish view is that I fear for value of my British pension in Rupees, as, post 65, that is now half my income.
I agree with what you said. I think the UK will be far worse off and I do think racism will be on a dramatic rise once Brexit is settled.

Brexit impacts and preparations are well underway, esp with businesses that have manufacturing assets and supply chains into the UK. As an example, companies worry they may not be able to bring in raw materials , post March 31st, or may see delays and added costs. In preparation, they are stockpiling materials( thus triggering a run on pallets), and looking for warehouse space.... Pallets and warehouse space are at a premium now.

Re. Reaction of Indian immigrants in the UK, to Brexit. I think most of them figure the country will want them as long as they are net contributors to the economy. These folks figure one on one relations with India might be preferable to multilateral deals within the EU.

What do you think the worst case scenario might be in regards to Brexit?

For sure, there will be some contraction of the U.K. Economy, under any scenario.
Worst case, if Britain chooses to simply exit with no trade backstops , travel will get to be a hassle. Capital investments by companies from outside the uk will shrink, causing a dent in GDP. Companies wanting to do business across Europe could move operations out of UK to ?? Germany? France? The CEO of Bank of America was clearly worried, in a recent interview. I guess the UK as a English speaking gateway to Europe will cease to be so.

I work for a German company, and English ( plus lack of German fluency) is perfectly acceptable when working in Germany.

The Brexit folks keep talking of dealing directly with countries such as India, and not taking directions from Brussels. But if you were a India or even USA, and had to prioritize investments or trade deals between the EU and the U.K., which would you choose?

You should follow the TATA owned steel company, formerly known as Corus steel. They had labor problems in the UK, and were keen on shutting down plants . Recently they tied up (Joint venture) with a German company, and a hard Brexit will likely accelerate their move out of the U.K.

I hate that Mad-Cow Thatcher decimated Britain's manufacturing industry and turned it into a wunch of bankers. But she did. Britain is a finance/banking/services centre. Those industries are incredibly easy to move, compared to thousands of tons of machinery, or thousands of acres of agriculture (I think UK still has some) and as money is their business and the only thing that interests them... Why would they stick around?

Worst case is Britain becomes a bankrupt country. Stressing: worst. Hoping that doesn't happen. But don't see much good coming off all this.

Hello Ed,
I am currently in Trabquebar and intend spending New Years here,generally trying to ignore it by reading books and wondering on the beach.
I am having a great time,Tamilnadu is a lovely place with very friendly people.Next stop Kumbakonam.
When I return to the UK I will have to look into the pensions more closely.
Cheers Simon.

If one is trained in an area of special need, medical doctor or software for example, you can go anywhere with large compensation. There is a lot of competition for the best students from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), almost all countries are recruiting them. They can go anywhere in the world! Otherwise it is difficult!

I've been reading on a bunch of British forums lately and it seems that there is a wave of aggressive nationaliism sweeping over the UK at the moment. Many British people seem to want to stop all immigration into the UK.

At the same time, many British people are under the impression that India is just DYING to be a trading partner with an isolated UK. Where did this impression come from?
Intersting..

Migrating from India to UK has never been easy, and I feel it is not going to change. It is just as hard for British person to migrate to India. Will it change after Brexit, I feel not. Will it get harder for an Indian migrating to the UK, I personally feel it will remain the same.

Please do not believe in media about nationalism, UK is an amazing multi culture country, and there is no more nationalism because of Brexit. British do not want to stop all immigration, but it does need a better managed immigration strategy.

With regards to trade, trade priority for the UK will be with EU, which is our biggest trading partner and accounts for nearly 50% of our trade, followed by the USA, followed by China, followed Canada and than by others. Priority for the UK is to get a trade deal with EU. With regards to trade with India, we import more goods from India than we export to India, so trade deal with India is just as important to India than it for the UK.
Idle mind is a Devil's workshop.
