    I posted the below on the thread - Where have all the tenants gone?

    The countdown to Brexit has seen the number of workers in Britain from the former communist countries of eastern Europe fall at its sharpest rate since modern records began more than two decades ago.

    Official figures covering the summer and early autumn showed a 154,000 drop over the past year in the number of people employed from eight countries – including Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic – that joined the EU in the early 2000s.

    The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said the year-on-year fall to 881,000 in the number of these workers in the period of July to September was the largest since 1997.

    The annual 132,000 drop in the number of workers from the EU as a whole was also unprecedented. Employment from the rest of the world grew by 34,000.

    I have and it's very sad. They were long-standing tenants and one was a senior NHS doctor.

    It's hard for us to imagine what it's like being a 'foreigner' in another country where suddenly a 'majority' says that you're not wanted anymore.

    They felt persecuted.

    Landlords who voted leave are like turkeys voting for Xmas. I'll leave it there.

    This whole sorry episode in the UK has because we have a huge divide in the UK

    I wish I could take you to meet friends and customers in the NE that I know

    You would see and feel the anger that is in the area Nearly everyone I know is anti Immigration and the Immigrants are being blamed

    because of the failed Govt that has turned its back on the NE

    The Vote to leave was a protest vote mostly from the North which has not had a voice on tens of years

    I go back to Thatcher and what she did in the NE

    If you kick a dog long enough it will bite and this is what happened with the vote

    I have little or no time for any politicians because of what I now see a divided bigoted nation which is turning on its self

    The Germans blamed the Jews after the first world war They blamed the Jews for every wrong in Germany Just as the Ethnic population is being blamed

    today in the UK mostly in the North even strong Labour areas voted out and I get sick of seeing in the press they did not know what they voted for

    They did know and that was to stop immigration

    The EU started will well meaning But Its gone too far and open boarders will finish it

    Its not only the UK there are a number of right wing coming to power because of immigration

    Hatred is building everywhere  with the likes of Trump in the USA and growing resentment in other countries

    This country is becoming an awful place

    Terror killings in London by the mad men only make things worse the hatred is building

    The social experiment of multi cultural Britain is dividing Britain

    and if Govt doesn't listen to the north in the future I dread to think where this will all end in the future

    Birds of a Feather flock together

    Where you live is not main land Britain London is an island on its own and has no resemblance to the major parts of the UK

    I don't like what's happening any more than you do But the worm is turning

    Sunderland could lose more jobs via Nissan But I know that the Northerners would allow it to go if it meant leavening Europe

    This is one hell of a can of worms now it open I just want to know what we do to sort it out and let Britain Heal

    because it needs a lot of healing

    A very succinct summary of the situation DL

    When David Cameron offered a referendum, I wonder whether he fully understood the political and economic landscape of Britain outside the privileged world in which he was raised. He certainly had quite a privileged upbringing, Eton, Oxford and the Bullingdon Club and little to no experience of Government.  He then surrounded himself with like-minded individuals in George Osborne and it has all come this! The question is where and how will it all end?

    > a 'majority' says that you're not wanted anymore.

    I don't think you can simply say that all those who voted BREXIT did so because they wanted all foreigners to leave. And lets face it, if that was the case then why are they not trying to get all foreigners from countries outside the EU to leave?

    Yes, one couple left to go back to italy.

    In general in fulham and putney a reaosnable amount of demand used to come from french and german bankers moving over for a couple of years or more.

    That demand has pretty much disappeared over the last two years and rents have fallen around 10%. Which is why i do find it somewhat amusing people on here stating about raising rents to cover s24 etc. Simply not possible in this area.

    Agreed Jo, I'm only a coupe of miles from you and the same applies.

    I'm very concerned that the rental market in SW London is now toxic.
