    Moreover, the study found that UK migrants are among the most educated and skilled of those from any nation, with one of the highest net average income rates, suggesting that Brexit has begun a steady drain of the most talented and productive people to the continent.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    You wouldn't make it here, you can stay with what's left! Maybe this is why Britain has changed it's immigration policy to try and attract only skilled workers because they know that there soon won't be any left...

    Sorry, can't help you with that as the UK requires skilled workers to come in occasionally to sort out the problems, plus the UK needs the foreign currency...
