An immigrant by any other name.......

"Hard times in Spain sends expats home" the BBC tell us. Fair enough, but then I got to thinking about that term "expat". It somehow has a harmless, almost warm ring to it. Quite unlike some other terms such as "immigrant" or "asylum seeker" or worst of all, "failed asylum seeker". Interesting stuff language I'm sure you will agree.
