British emigrants seem uncontrollably attracted to the sunshine of the south. A huge proportion of "Brits abroad" are flocking to Spain, a country that hosts over 300,000 former residents of Blighty. This even puts them ahead of the UK's Irish neighbours, who nevertheless have given 250,000 Brits a new home.
France and Germany follow with more than 100,000 former island residents. There’s a steep drop-off thereafter – most European countries house less than 50,000 British immigrants. Will they all soon be ex-expats?
