This is an important read in the Independent citing new research from Ipsos Mori and Kings College. Surprisingly, half of the British pubic now support more immigration of highly skilled workers.
As the realities of Brexit sink in, I sense that the penny is beginning to drop for many Brexit supporters. Real wages will continue to be frozen and there will be a continued cull in public servicers in response to lower national output. Highly skilled immigrants are essential to keep the economy going – UK labour seemingly can’t compete in skills, productivity and motivation. Meanwhile, I struggle to see the indigenous work force ready to match immigrants in lower skilled jobs.
The bottom line is that Britain’s young will suffer, especially those without advanced education and skills. The winners will be the fortunate minority who are lucky enough to inherit property wealth from grand parents.
