Sorry for being a bit slow. We've missed the root cause. It's about benefit reform, not Brexit.
I voted Brexit to stop FOM. I reckon most did. FOM is for the corporates and landed (aka old money) to make more money, for the govt to falsify GDP for internal (voters) and external (UN Security Council, etc) purposes, and the "intellectual" elites who live in a dream world. All paid for by us "deplorables" through a strained infrastructure (NHS, roads, social, etc), higher rent and house prices, underfunding as budgets spent on tax credits, etc, and future pension liabilities.
I want to stay in the EC but FOM made this impossible. Looks like I will get the worst - loss of the stuff I like and still FOM. This is because the above vested interests will win. They will ensure FOM continues but strip me of my rights, etc to deliver some sort of (more than present) serf existence. They will get cream off the benefits such as trade, monopolistic behaviour, and FOM while we lose our benefits.
The root cause now seems obvious. A bit late realising it but this country does not do informed debate. Of course we have a FOM issue when we have such a different non contributory benefits system and a tax credits system than the vast majority of the other members. I would come here too!
This is yet another total failure by all past and probably future governments and the "intellectual" charlatans, this one being to fix the benefits system. To have a system like Beveridge intended. Brexit is merely an effect. The EU is yet again showing us the way but instead we retreat.
Fix benefits and maybe the majority of FOM would be the best and the brightest through proper wage arbritrage, not the distorted nonsense we currently have.
But this will not happen and us "deplorables" will, yet again, be shafted. This because we live in a managed democracy run by the above vested interests. I'll probably move to an EC country, ironically, if I can afford it!
