    Too damn right that 70% is a totally made up figure. The reality is actually significantly higher than that!

    It follows fears in the British tech community that access to skilled computer coders would be hit by restrictions to freedom of movement when the UK leaves the EU.

    David Cameron introduced the tech visa scheme in 2014 in a bid to make London the technology capital of Europe and rival Silicon Valley as a destination for start-ups, and amid fears of a shortage of skilled coders in the UK.

    The “Tech Nation” visa scheme allows Tech City UK to endorse applications from non-EU workers, and lets successful applicants stay in the country for five years, after which they can apply to settle.

    I notice that YOU and sasguru have no plans to "flock off". Can't be THAT worried about Brexit.
