This is in the same vein as many so called “ex-pats” living in this beautiful country. We are not ex-pats, we are immigrants and, as such, should live with and abide by the laws and rules of this country. We should speak Portuguese. I do, by the way. We should pay the appropriate taxes. I have experienced superb health care and education for my son, who is also totally bilingual. We should also note that the wearing of masks and testing etc. in airports is ensuring that we do not have the level of Covid infection currently in the UK. If Mr. McInnes has a problem returning to our gorgeous country maybe he should stay at home.
