Somebody was claiming that a pensioner living in Spain who found their access to Spanish medical care disappeared would be able to come back to the UK and use the NHS. I was correcting them - that can't even be done now, there's no reason to suppose it'll get easier after #brexit.

So, if #brexit causes their access to Spanish medical care to disappear they'd better have lots of money saved up.
