Brexit Meaning to Expats in Spain

Due to the recent results from the Brexit, people are searching for emigration information, meanwhile on Twitter nearly every trending topic is related to Brexit.

The fallout from the UK’s vote to leave the European Union has been thrown into sharp relief by a surge in Google searches about emigration and dual nationality.

Google Trends shows that searches for those terms soared over the past 24 hours as Britain went to the polls and the results rolled in.

Google searches for buying gold – a move often taken during turbulent economic times – spiked in the early hours of the morning.

Ahead of the poll, the hashtag #IVotedRemain was the top trending topic on Twitter in the UK.

At one point, people were tweeting every couple of seconds using the hashtag British Referendum.

But despite the thousands of tweets, the odds of a Brexit stood firm with the bookies.

It was not until the Sunderland result came in, with a strong leave showing, that odds began to tumble.

By 11am on Friday, the hashtag #WhatHaveWeDone had started trending, as the 48% who voted to remain let off some steam.

What was the breakdown across the UK?

England voted strongly for Brexit, by 53.4% to 46.6%, as did Wales, with Leave getting 52.5% of the vote and Remain 47.5%.

Scotland and Northern Ireland both backed staying in the EU. Scotland backed Remain by 62% to 38%, while 55.8% in Northern Ireland voted Remain and 44.2% Leave.

With the prospect of a second Scottish independence referendum on the horizon, it should be no surprise that #indyref2 was also trending.

Most of the 10 trending topics were Brexit-related on Friday morning – including Bank of England governor Mark Carney, FTSE 100, and outgoing Prime Minister David Cameron.

David’s Cameron resignation or “abandon ship” as others call it and comments yesterday morning, didn’t help with the surprise that every one had after the results… Especially, as he was the one that introduced the referendum to the British people...

On top of this bombshell, Nigel Farage: £350 million pledge to fund the NHS was ‘a mistake’ and he is now retracting from his comments… But it’s a bit late, isn’t it?

Anyway, here you have a short video from Simon Manley, the British ambassador in Spain, explaining how the recent Brexit will affect all the British expats living in Spain... (Unfortunately this video is not longer available in YouTube...)
