    In terms of attracting staff to 'build their careers' here, it might already be too late. The whole Windrush debacle and the 'hostile environment' campaign means I wouldn't trust a Tory to not change its mind and kick people out later, once they've already made lives here and even had families here.

    From my own Institution, a balanced assessment that concludes:

    Finally, there is no new information on how the UK commercial aerospace sector will be affected by changes in the customs and trading arrangements with the EU. UK-based suppliers remain pessimistic about the outcome. As a result, uncertainty reigns: ADS, the UK aerospace trade association has written to the EU Commission asserting that it is risking “confusion and disruption” in the aerospace sector in the event of a no-deal Brexit because it is preventing talks with EASA in advance of Brexit. Without certification, any aircraft with a UK-certified component could be grounded until agreement is reached. The UK has held preliminary talks with other regulators such as the US FAA, but according to the Commission “without sufficient clarity on both the outcome of the withdrawal process and the future UK legal framework, such discussions would currently be premature”. Clearly without progress in this area, the European commercial aerospace and MRO sectors could be subject to serious disruption from April 2019.

    Son is a University post-Doc science researcher. He's not very optimistic about the future of UK scientific research post Brexit (lucky he has an EU passport as well as a GB one then...:D)

    For Britain, to use a German phrase, Brexit will be the 'Ur catastrophe' of the 21st century.
