24 Feb Have Many Of Your Friends Disappeared?
If so, it is possible that unable to face the Post Brexit situation and pandemic pressures, they have simply packed their bags and gone.
Have many done this, you may well ask? Well, it seems that the “perfect storm” of Brexit and pandemic has kicked off a huge exodus of immigrants from the UK, with London the hardest hit.
A recently published blog, published by the government funded Economic Statistics Centre of Excellence, (ESCoE) estimates from their research that as many as 1.3 million people born abroad left the UK between the third quarter of 2019 and the same period in 2020.
Post-Brexit immigration rules, says the ESCoE mean that EU nationals who left the UK in the past year will need work visas to return and work in Britain. Those with settled status would be able to return to fill jobs, but new migrants would not.
