    Default We only want the brightest and best

    Time for another Brexit thread So the Leave groups kept on about that they only want to let the brightest and best in yet why would the brightest and best want to go to a country that has monumentally decided to **** itself up: https://www.theguardian.com/politics...eave-uk-brexit
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    The jingoistic shall be too consumed with X-factor to notice they're missing.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    So from their survey 1100 PhD's may or may not be leaving the UK and from this they have then extrapolated to become over a million ... looks like some sasguru skool of analysis going on at KPMG

    Typical Project Fear bolluxs, conjecture presented as fact

    it found that Britain remained in the top five most desirable EU countries (behind Germany and Sweden but ahead of Denmark and the Netherlands) in which to work


    EU applications for UK citizenship up 80% since Brexit
    One of the most noticeable changes was among Germans, with applications almost tripling. + 193%
    France + 168%

    Marianne Kaufmann, an EU national with dual French and German citizenship, has lived in the UK for 24 years and recently became a British citizen
    How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think

    There's hedging one's bets, and there's making really sure you're on the winning side, if there's another European war.

    Leave them alone, darmy. They know they've screwed the country up, and they need to be allowed a safe space to sit quietly and think about what they've done.
