If you want to have a secure job you should choose one in engineering.

The Brexit voter “tribes” that were created during the 2016 EU referendum, and that culminated in Boris Johnson’s general election victory last December, are already fading, according to new research published today by the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR).

It suggests that the pandemic may be bringing the “Brexit era” of British politics to a close – ending a four-year escape from normal politics. This presents an opportunity for the Labour Party to revive its fortunes, the paper argues – including in the Red Wall constituencies that were so crucial to the Conservative Party’s landslide victory in 2019.
