    We'd need to benchmark this to the EU Sarcasm Directive to be sure.

    Are you really as stupid as you seem to be?
    Well I guess the fact that you posted how an agent had completely screwed you over and you didn't realise it gives us the answer.
    Hard Brexit now!

    OK, explain this. 2 EU agencies are moving from a soon-to-be non EU country to another (as yet unknown) EU country. Why is this even news? It's a thousand-odd penpushers who won't be missed. I don't understand why you're crapping yourself. Unless you just signed a contract with one of them, that would be too

    With them parts of some industries move as well.

    In the case of the European Medicines agency a lot of the pharmaceutical industry jobs leave.

    Do the actual jobs leave, or do the pharmacos just need an EU "presence"? There's a difference, and most of the big ones are multi-nationals with a large EU presence already.

    In the case of the EMA, you ill-informed, ignorant fool, those "thousand-odd penpushers" who are mainly well paid, decide on which drugs are safe to bring to market and monitor existing ones. They will in fact be missed, not only for the taxes they pay here, but for the fact that thousands of pharma professionals from all over Europe have to come to London each year to conduct business because they are based here.
    Not to mention that the UK pharma industry will have to abide by their rules anyway if we are to sell to Europe.
    That's the thing about the unintelligent, they don't see the connections and assume that the 2nd rate organisations they work/contract for will be unaffected by the overall decline in a country's economic activity.

    Or Germany or Belgium, which are the EU's largest exporters of Pharma.
