A thread where we can log news stories and events that are affected or caused by Brexit. I hope this won’t be a recording of our descent into madness.

To kick off:
Quote:
Harlow murder: Polish officers patrol streets where Arek Jozwik was killed
Two Polish police officers have started patrols in a town where a Polish man died after being punched to the ground.

Arek Jozwik, 39, was attacked in Harlow, Essex, last month. Two Polish men were assaulted in the town a few days later at a vigil for Mr Jozwik.

Polish officers are there to "reassure the community", Essex Police said.

You may recall that a Polish man was killed in Harlow last month, in an apparent “hate crime” incident.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-37227313

Elsewhere, a Leeds woman is verbally abused whilst be interviewed by Channel 4. I posted this in the EU Referendum thread earlier.

And from the Independent in July:
Quote:
Hate crimes surge by 42% in England and Wales since Brexit result
Police have said the number of hate crimes recorded for the last two weeks in June has spiked by 42 per cent on this time last year.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/cr ... 26706.html

Feel free to add what you find.

Neo-Nazi group organise ‘soup kitchen of hate' in Glasgow
A GROUP of neo-Nazi white supremacists have organised “soup-kitchens of hate” in Glasgow.

At the end of August, the Hitler worshipping teenage fascists of National Action joined with Polish fascist party The National Revival of Poland, to set up stall outside the St Enoch centre offering food and clothes to white homeless people.

Not that Enoch of course - St. Tenue (St. Enoch)
Her son, St. Mungo, is also commemorated in Glasgow

Brexit has had 'no major effect' on economy so far
There has been little impact of the Brexit vote on the UK economy so far, says the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-37428764

We know that economic shocks may well be storing up in the system for later, though.

Well, there's a shocker. Of course there has been little impact (although the level of impact depends rather significantly on what you are looking at) - despite the vote nothing significant has changed yet.
I know for example that there has been an impact of scientific funding for some medical research - projects have been delayed or pulled due to the uncertainty over the UK funding position going forward.

I've see social media messages coming from a couple of VERY heavyweight legal firms saying they won't comply with this if it become legislation. These are people who can (and often are) happy to the take the government on in a stare-down. If May & co try to actually implement this it will get messy very quickly.

In my line of work, the only course in the UK has shut after 15 years. I'll laugh if they force us to recruit Brits.

Madness.

I am starting to see things here, being an ex-pat, I am getting asked some funny questions and it might be harder to get work. I'm seriously looking at getting German citizenship.

It won’t be forcing as such - more nudging you towards among the ”right choice”. Things are more subtle now than Germany in the 1930s.

Government bars foreign academics from advising on Brexit | Politics | The Guardian
https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... -academics

Do they honestly expect to get away with that?
