    The United Kingdom has a diverse set of overseas born populations, with the largest 5 contributing countries being:

    Poland (831,000)
    India (795,000)
    Pakistan (503,000)
    Ireland (382,000)
    Germany (286,000)

    58,000 people identified themselves as Gypsy or Irish Traveller in the 2011 Census (0.1 per cent of the usual resident population of England and Wales)

    100,000? Don't think so, and that 2011 figure of 53,000 would include people in the UK who were English Gypsies and others who were British born but self-identifying as Irish Travellers. Also the UK stats include all those Irish Travellers of NI extraction.

    Besides, the notion of any Govt being able to round up and deport all those travellers is kinda ridiculous given how little control anyone has over them.

    These folks seem to think that after Brexit the Irish should have rights within the UK that others wouldn't have.

    Is this complaining driven by the sense of entitlement that is held by some Irish people, or by the sense of entitlement that is held by traveller people?

    "Irish citizens living in Britain could be at risk of losing their right to live, work, rent private accommodation and avail of healthcare services in a post-Brexit UK, a new report into citizens’ rights has warned.

    Irish citizens in the UK could also lose the right to exemptions from deportation and prohibitions on employment of foreigners once the UK has formally left the European Union in 2019, the report says.
