Algeria was colonized by France in 1830, and many French families settled there until the 1962 independence at the end of 8 years of a bloody colonial war.

Over one million of "pied-noirs", descendant of the French settlers, relocated to mainland France: such an sudden influx of population at the time was absorbed by the booming economy of the early 1960s. Repatriating Unionists to Britain nowadays would be much more challenging in a post-Brexit depressed economy.
