Is the sort of migration policy that would be required by EEA membership still just about sellable to a significant number of voters? Could some of the political energy currently being devoted to “stop-Brexit” campaigns be better spent on making a more positive and nuanced case for an open immigration policy?
Broadly, how can the UK economy respond to a future with fewer EEA migrants: if UK nationals need higher wages to draw them into low-skill jobs, what are the implications of that? Or will employers automate instead of hiring more expensive Brits?
