They are currently riding the high from leaving the EU
A) We haven't left yet. We haven't begun to leave yet. All we did was have a vote on if we should.
B) Pretty much everyone I know is bloody angry at the result, the economy is tanking and most of the stuff that was promised by the leave campaign has evaporated and many who voted leave are now regretting it.
I do have an issue with the UK being full. There's no more room.
Wrong. Very. We are 51st in the world at 262 people per square KM. By comparison, The Netherlands is 407, Belgium 371, Bermuda 1,254
As an European, we *don't* work so hard for an employer.
Except the UK which like everything else likes to mimic the US's worst habits including long hours, frozen wages and extreme pressure to keep climbing the ladder or be let go as a shirker.
