Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

So did we shoot ourselves in the foot or will it be "alright on the night"!

You mean that people from the EU, hence 100% free to relocate and start a new job in the UK at the moment, are not willing to go there while 12 months ago they would be?
This makes no sense whatsoever.
My best guess is that these "employers" are the ones who like to bring in the most unqualified people for the most underpaid positions. I'm pretty sure the British economy and society won't suffer from this.
Personally I am not interested to move to Britain (except for Scotland if the weather was not that bad). I like very much Central Europe and I am happy where I am at the moment. But if I wanted to move there and a company was offering a position that was aligned with my expectations and skills, the Brexit prospect 2+ years down the road would totally not be an issue. On the contrary, Brexit would even motivate me to move to the UK asap.
Moving in and out of Switzerland (because it's fun).
Currently away. Miss the Alps.
