    The Brexit impact is tiny either way, but it has given one side of the argument a convenient bogeyman to blame for British secular decline.

    There are pros and cons and certainly cons will have a shorter term impact. Overall the UK would probably have been better off staying in the EU political union

    From the article
    "In 2022, 46% of pharmaceutical exports went to the EU. She warned that Britain’s previously thriving pharmaceutical sector was now in a trade deficit because we have to import so much more medicine than before – the latest 2022 figures show a $5bn deficit globally, compared with a surplus of $9.7bn in 2010"


    UK Pharma exports to the EU are up ~30% since the vote. Imports are up a lot more. Doesn't that indicate the UK has benefited from Brexit. Similar exports but cheaper imports displacing less efficient local production?

    I think you are right but don't tell the Brexiteers that UK jobs have been lost as cheaper imports are displacing local production.

    That was surely the aim along with the mass legal importation of higher quality workers.

    The UK to choose who it trades with and its immigration policy. The post Brexit surge in new young workers from many regions of the world should be better for the UK then the 'so long as they are one of us' approach of the EU's internal policies of migration to drive integration.

    I have a feeling it wasn't. Do you remember the leave campaign ever mentioning UK jobs being lost to cheap imports?
