Wtf has this got to do with brexit apart from the classic example of the living in the past mindset of far too many brexiters.

Mind you, no real loss to the British taxpayer.

If you think all 17 million of those people still think they made the right choice (or were even properly informed in the first place), you're more delusional than I thought you were.

Applications from European Union students to study at UK universities have fallen by 7 per cent following the nation’s Brexit vote, part of an overall 5 per cent decline in applications from all students.

Ucas figures published on 2 February show that to date a total of 564,190 people have applied for full-time undergraduate study at UK higher education institutions for 2017, a decrease of 5 per cent compared with the same point last year.

The objection seems to be to foreigners doing the work at all, and the argument that they were coming prior to EU & FOM really doesn't do much to address that, though it would be much better directed to those doing the objecting than to me.

Who says EU agricultural workers are coming to the UK long term, anyway? And if they are finding other work subsequent to their stint(s) on farms (which they would have to do since they couldn't get by without work), presumably they're filling similar gaps in other sectors, which, without them, would go similarly unfilled. So we could have the same discussion about those if that were the case.

Well, traders know that there's no upside in Brexit, and therefore, it's a solid bet that they'd all sell sterling on the news.

But it will recover slightly. After all, it will be at least a couple of years before the shit hits the fan, and there will be plenty of good economic news in-between as long as the UK is still in the single market.

You're right. It's also why EU members are hardly "terrified" of Brexit. Nor is Spain appearing to go down the tubes as you keep telling me.

Eurozone economy quietly outshines the US
“I certainly continue to be amazed by the skewed negativism towards Europe,” says Erik Nielsen, chief economist of UniCredit, who says such views are “mostly based on what seems like superficial attention to the data — or, maybe, to ‘alternative facts’ .”

And this too:

The alarmist Brexit press got everything wrong about the Dutch elections

Coverage of the Dutch elections last week is clear evidence that in the pro-Brexit media a toxic combination of ignorant hostility and selective perception continues to inform views about Europe. This attitude has led Britain to leave an organisation it never bothered to understand, in the hope of a future it did not examine. It is now leading Britain to fundamentally misunderstand the countries it depends on for a reasonable Brexit deal.
