    Default Brexit fuels brain drain as skilled Britons head to the EU

    "A British-German study uncovers huge changes in migration patterns of UK citizens since 2016 referendum

    Brexit has sparked an exodus of economically productive people from the UK to European Union nations on a scale that would normally be expected only as a result of a major economic or political crisis, according to a detailed new study.

    Using a combination of official statistics across the EU and in-depth interviews with people living in Germany, the study found huge changes in migration patterns of UK citizens since the 2016 referendum, which contrast with largely stable ones among nationals from the 27 EU states remaining in the bloc."

    They found Scooty by the looks of it:

    The majority of interviewees who left agreed to either a pay cut or a pay freeze as part of their decision. Some struggled to find a job. “I have still not found work, which is not what I expected […] The cost of the move in personal and financial terms is always difficult to foresee, and I’m starting to wonder if I underestimated the risk involved,” said a British IT worker who migrated in October 2019 with his wife and three children.
    So, not exactly a 'brain drain' then...

    Imagine how bad it must be when people see working for the Germans as something better than supporting local economy.

    Greedy taxman butchered the golden goose to satisfy his hunger.

    The Guardian eh, well lets hope a few of those left leaning, hand wringing, social wimps decide to take a jump to the EU.

    Only when they start complaining about their expressos not being ethically sourced, their local polish barista is going to give them a smack around the chops. Of course they won’t move to Poland and enrich its culture they will move to Berlin and whinge endlessly about brexit.

    That will teach you not to put a triggered warning on a guardian link.
