    Brexodus has started

    I notice it in my direct surroundings, where many EU financed research companies are based. Mostly top level educated Germans, French,Italian and Dutch nuclear scientists are leaving because of brexit, the increased racism as a result and fear subsidies for their jobs will be culled. I'm sure the brexiteers love to go back to Victorian times and go back to the coal fuelled steam age.

    Also I see in some Facebook groups, I am member of, that many EU nationals are packing their bags.
    Just read some of the comments on this article and you see why: https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...ship-uk-brexit

    Bye Bye

    We don't need nuclear scientists, psychiatrists, lecturers, research scientists, nurses, fruit pickers ...

      It's far too late for psychiatrists.

        Problem is the cream (whether UK or EU citizens) can work anywhere and since Brexit has made the UK unappealing to many, the only people staying by definition will be people without options i.e. the dregs (whether UK or EU citizens).
        And companies will move to where the cream are. That used to be London, now it will be elsewhere.
        All this has its own inexorable logic and it won't happen overnight, but 5 years from now, the employment market in the Uk is going to be very different - and not for the better.
        Hard Brexit now!

          Sadly, the people who lack the capability to understand this will be the most affected.

              Largely (but not entirely).

                Look, I was reasonably on the fence over Brexit but we've got to accept the result and move forward.

                All you naysayers are creating a self-fulfilling prophecy; the atmosphere is positively toxic thanks to all the bleating from the Guardian and their ilk & it is this that will be putting off investment in the country, not our exit from the EU.

                And, while I'm at it, I'm not also a huge fan of Mr Trump but making the leader of the most powerful country in the world the focus of the "daily hate" isn't exactly going to ensure we're first in the queue for a trade deal is it?

                  As the economy shrinks it is the highly paid skilled bit that will disappear, in particular the finance sector. The irony is that the skilled leave voters who voted to kick out the unskilled from the fruit farms, will themselves replace them.

                    sasguru off you cockwomble.
                    I'm sure the chairmen of industry base their decisions on the Guardian.
