No longer welcome: the EU academics in Britain told to ‘make arrangements to leave’
Some EU citizens living in Britain who decided to seek permanent residency after the Brexit vote are being told to make arrangements to leave. A number of these people are among the 31,000 EU academics currently working in UK universities.Some of them work in archaeology departments. These people however were not employed because of a need to fill some 'foreigner quota', they were mostly employed because the recruiting process identified them (in theory at least) as the best for that post - their leaving means the universities will now be forced to fill the position with second-best. and so the decline of Britain into a xenophobic isolated intellectual backwater begins. Pathetic.
