They just kept saying it wouldn’t affect people like me (well educated, middle-class background with parents who can support me, relevant work experience in wealth management etc.). I think they still feel the same way, they’re probably in denial about how negatively Brexit is going to turn out.
I mean there’s still a lot that can change and happen, but from that article it seems that they even want highly skilled EU immigrants to only be allowed to stay on a 3-5 year basis? I can’t see the big FTSE100 companies standing for this. So much of their workforce is diverse and from all over the EU.
Good thing my girlfriend only intends to stay in the UK for another 2 years and wants to move back to Chicago. Probably won’t be the worst move for me, I’m just going to miss my whole life over here. All of my best mates live here with their partners and they’re all getting married and buying houses and stuff, I’m going to be gutted missing out on when they start having kids and not being able to the cool uncle who comes to visit. Plus the South West is my home now. Bath, Bristol, Cornwall, I love it here, I don’t really want to leave.
