    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    A couple of bits stood out for me: -

    Coverage of the effects of immigration was overwhelmingly negative. Migrants were blamed for many of Britain’s economic and social problems – most notably for putting unsustainable pressure on public services.
    UK media coverage of the EU Referendum campaign can best be described as acrimonious and divisive.

    I *think* it means the "establishment" has convinced the immigrants are to blame for the establishment screwing things up.

    No doubt sasguru will be along soon to point out I am a cretin. Without offering any reasoning....

    The Remain claim that Brexit would cost households £4,300 per year
    by 2030 was discussed in more articles than the Leave campaign’s
    claim that the EU cost the UK £350 million each week (365 articles
    vs 147 articles).
    Coverage of the effects of immigration was overwhelmingly negative.
    Migrants were blamed for many of Britain’s economic and social
    problems – most notably for putting unsustainable pressure on public
    services.
    • Specific nationalities were singled out for particularly negative
    coverage – especially Turks and Albanians, but also Romanians and
    Poles.
    • The majority of negative coverage of specific foreign nationals was
    published by three news sites: the Express, the Daily Mail, and the
    Sun
    .
    Well I'm shocked.
    Will work inside IR35. Or for food.

    Well I'm shocked.
    Switzerland has just implemented immigration limits on Bulgarians & Romanians

    Will be interesting to see if it's extended beyond 2019
    How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think
