If Brexit goes badly, or there's another serious recession on the horizon (globally, which is what I'm starting to see warnings for in various reputable publications)

Look at the 19 countries who use the Euro and what is happening to the 3 top economies using the Euro: Germany, France and Italy.
.

Germany narrowing missed a recession recently and France are still struggling.
Now we see that Germany has just sunk deeper into contraction.

That's before their fallout from Brexit and any new US tariffs hit: the UK and US are one and two of the export market for German car makers.
And lets not forget that the Euro is based on Germany.


Italy is already in a recession, again

You can look at the chart here to see how many of the 28 EU countries rely on money from Germany, UK, France and Italy to fund them. http://www.spiegel.de/international/europe/brexit-to-cost-european-union-billions-a-1111724.html



The Republic of Ireland has already asked for emergency funding. They are also under pressure from Germany and France to lose their low corporation tax rate that the RoI now relies on, with the EU (France and Germany) planned CCCTB and the end of their veto.

 Thank you Sirius.
To be clear, we are still in the planning and preparing stages and haven’t even decided whether we are going to move or not. We will likely not make that decision until we have all of our credit card debt paid off which is going to take 20 to 30 months, depending on income. I also told my husband I will not move without a years’ living expenses in the bank. I am not as worried about how things will go financially as I am about what is best for our family. I have a child with Aspergers and another who is speech delayed. All three are exceptionally bright (not a brag, just a statement of fact and a legit concern because neither of us were in schools as children with a challenging enough curriculum).
All this to say, who knows what will be going on in 2021, which is the earliest we’d be making a start?

Just go with your heart. Life is all about taking risks.

BTW, Scarborough is a jewel in the crown of England.

I love Scarborough so much. We have an Aunt there and always make it a point to spend a whole day at least when we visit.
