In August 2020 it was reported that -
"The number of British nationals emigrating to other EU countries has risen by 30% since the Brexit referendum, with half making their decision to leave in the first three months after the vote, research has found.
Analysis of data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and Eurostat shows that migration from Britain to EU states averaged 56,832 people a year in 2008-15, growing to 73,642 a year in 2016-18.
The study also shows a 500% increase in those who made the move and then took up citizenship in an EU state. Germany saw a 2,000% rise, with 31,600 Britons naturalising there since the referendum.
“These increases in numbers are of a magnitude that you would expect when a country is hit by a major economic or political crisis,” said Daniel Auer, co-author of the study by Oxford University in Berlin and the Berlin Social Science Center."
Many of us will have family members who have become part of the Brexit Brain Drain. These are predominately highly skilled graduates and professionals in their twenties, thirties and forties with valuable transferable skills , international in outlook , regretful about leaving Brexit Britain but wanting the best future for themselves and their children- a great loss to this country
