Yes I'm aware that dogs are descended from wolves, but I just watched my corgi get stuck between the couch cushions while sleeping on her back so she couldn't roll over.

(and thank you for that article, even though it's not complete research it does show interesting information and I've saved it for the useful passages in it)

I never said this was the only contributing factor to the ills of the NHS. I know it has a lot of problems, + has done for some time, but the Brexit atmosphere is contributing to them. I suggest you go and speak to NHS staff and find out, rather than quoting incomplete reasearch

And there's absolutely nothing in that article that refutes a word of what I've said - in fact it does slightly corroborate it: "about half said it was because they were ‘relocating’". They are going to other EU country hospitals.

Please don't accuse me of baiting you, I never asked you to condemn anything - I merely stated facts: that there are a section (and note that I said "some" not "all") of racist Brexit supporters.

And I'll reiterate: this information isn't from the newspapers, possibly spun with an agenda, it isn't heresay and rumours passed on from person to person, it's from someone who works in the NHS and is seeing their colleagues leave and asking them why. It's first-hand information

You said that no one is abusing NHS employees and making them feel unwelcome. No - in a way - but *people* who are from the EU are being abused and some of work for the NHS, they don't wear their badges 24/7 so this general abuse affects them as much as everyone else.

My mate said some of these are life-saving operations, so Brexit is/will actually stop people from being saved from dying. And as I said, that's aside from the years and years of experience in the NHS that's being lost by people leaving.

There's a specialist who is the best in the world in their field who has left. Some people said "just replace them" - you can't. They've had to tell people that they can no longer operate on their loved ones because the only person who can do it has gone.

They were also getting abused in the street by people that thought Brexit gave them carte-blanche to abuse all "foreigners". Many of these people have lived here and worked in the NHS for 20 years, so this abuse aside and just looking at NHS attrition, you can't just replace them

These people were talking about a general toxic atmosphere in the country that came from papers like the Daily Mail and the parts of the Brexit campaign that wanted "foreigners out". Now I'm not saying the whole campaign was xenophobic, but parts were outright racist.

My mate is a manager at a major NHS hospital, so this information is all first-hand from people they've worked with, and known, for years. At the *start of last year* they we telling me how their unfilled vacancies had quadrupled due to EU staff leaving.
