Forced to move money offshore when they found out I was no longer a UK resident.

I was born in the UK. When the UK building society found I was no longer a UK resident, I was forced to withdraw my savings. (I had earnt this money whilst a UK resident and was paying tax on the interest to the UK government). As I thought I might one day return to my homeland, I wanted to keep these savings in sterling. The only option I could see was to place these funds offshore. And that is how the UK law and government helped me lose my savings in this crisis.
