EU workers are deserting us already - Brexit will end in disaster

EU workers are deserting us already - Brexit will end in disaster | ESRC press coverage | Scoop.it

To warn about the consequences of an exodus of European Union workers from the British economy probably comes across like shouting fire in the midst of Noah’s flood. Aren’t there more than two million EU nationals in the British workforce, double the number a decade ago? Isn’t net immigration from the EU running at almost 200,000 a year according to the latest figures? Didn’t millions of Britons vote for Brexit precisely to reduce the numbers of workers from the Continent coming to Britain?

Record UK immigration numbers expected to be ‘high watermark | ESRC press coverage | Scoop.it

For the seventh quarter in a row, net migration to the UK is three times higher than Downing Street’s target. At first glance, the most recent figures - showing net migration of 335,000 and a record influx of immigrants from the EU - appear to track the ongoing trend. But beneath the headline numbers are some early signs that peak migration might now have been reached.
