    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.
    All those well paid jobs disappearing also means less money spent in the economy, so fewer Costa Coffee jobs for mordac to fight for when the bright young European graduates who currently do these jobs head off to more welcoming lands.

    I suspect BP banged his head while doing his triathlons. His comments on CUK are truly imbecilic.
    Hard Brexit now!

    But you know Costa won't employ UK nationals, that's why they want "barista visas". Christ when you lose an argument, you really lose it (in more ways than one).

    As the head of the civil service said last July companies won't simply shut they'll simply move slowly, it's a death by a thousand cuts. A a couple of hundred from this bank, a few hundred from that bank, a company sets up a new HQ, all adds up.
    ...and of course the agencies and all the companies that coalesce around them.

    Or the USA, which also has a huge pharma industry, and isn't in the EU. You can twist anything anyhow, but it doesn't make you clever.

    You really are an absolute imbecile.
    What does the US pharma industry have to do with the fact that we're going to lose a large and important organisation that was based in London and that is reponsible for approving British drugs?

    Don't give up hope! In a red, white and blue Brexit, these visas will only be allowed if you don't first meet the minimum requirements for hiring.

    You wouldn't recognise an argument if it offered you a zero hours contract for picking spuds in Lincolnshire.

    But at least his agent is taking less than 5%. He knows that because his agent told him so.

    The US can sell into Europe, and UK companies will be able to do the same post-Brexit. The fact that a few administrators are moving to wherever makes no sodding difference. You really do worry too much. Have you had your blood pressure checked recently?

    Are you pretending to be thick?

    Do you think you can take any medication you like?
