You don't do reading posts very well, do you. I mentioned other pensions I paid into. Two government, 1 private, 1 state. You may not be the only one who made provisions for his later years (as I'm nearly 70 I think I can count myself in on that). I also pay almost 2k to the Spanish tax man as well but, then, I did make provisions. On top of that my savings which now earn a derisory amount in interest and have to pay taxes on but I didn't pee it all up a wall when I was younger (well, quite a lot of it I did but that's another matter). It's rather more than the figures you stated but I started a pension scheme when I was 18 so I think Its now time to enjoy it. 

Of course, according to you, I could get a job but I doubt climbing ladders to communications masts or humping hods of bricks around would be suitable for me at the moment. 

So. yes, the figures do add up.

Rot and double rot. I worked for 42 years and paid National Insurance and tax for all that time. I still pay nearly £4000 a year in tax to the UK government. If you write to the Chancellor and ask him to give me all the contributions I paid over those years plus stop charging me tax then I will give up my state pension (which is going to raised the tax I already pay by some £600 in UK).

So, over a lifetime at current money, a person who has paid tens and tens of thousands of pounds into an insurance system has no right to any payment just because he's moved to Torremolinos yet a dole bludger or SE Asian who goes to UK to live and has never paid a penny into anything gets everything going?
Bloody Little Englander attitude if I might say.

Tteedd OK let's have a compromise the UK will accept access to the single market and freedom of movement .....If we can have a controlled breading program like they have in China.

Oh, goody. Can I make my own harvesters and baps? 

Mickey, what about a pension and maybe the winter fuel grant as two things for starters?

So what about the pension? If someone has paid into the system all their lives, please explain why they shouldn't get the pension because they live in Torremolinos and not Bournemouth. If you visit Spain (or any other country) should you give up your pension for that amount of time?  Stupid argument

And, in case it passed you by, Brits (who have paid into the system) don't get the winter fuel allowance in Spain. Nor do they get pension credits or carer's allowances either.

Yes, robertt8696. €38.5 billion worth of food and drink a year from the EU is only a small part of the bigger picture. Now, about the size of this square hole?........

And just as an aside, from the people who really know (ONS) the value of exports fell in Jan 2017 to £28.3 billion pounds and the amount of imports increased to £31.8 billion compared with the previous month. 

Now, I'm not saying UK is not an important trading partner, I also think it will continue to be so after Brexit (maybe not straight away but once it all settles down) but I do object to the amount of, quite frankly, BS that gets trotted out whether its the value of this or value of that or number of migrants to UK which are grossly inflated by some posters.
Nissan UK is doing marvellously well and exports most of its production. Unfortunately, it imports most of its components which, at the moment, attract no tariffs. Who knows what the price will be if (big IF) those kick in?

Hopefully some more enlightened people will be doing the Brexit negotiations on both sides rather than people who pluck figures out of the air to prove their point. And, hopefully, it will all work out well for the UK and the EU together. The last thing we need is animosity.
