Nice, UK workers now second-rate in their own labour market. Well done, all!

One thing's for sure, there are no benefits for working class people.

How many British flight attendants work on routes that are not connected to UK? For routes between EU and UK it doesn't matter whether you're from EU or UK. The same "problem" applies. Not saying it won't have an affect but the impact will be minimal.

The other scenario:

Imagine you’re a UK company/recruitment agency who’s won a big prestigious project in the EU.

Which of your many capable managers do you choose to run it:

1. A Brit with an additional Irish passport
2. An EUer (who also has UK settled status)
3. A Brit with just a UK passport

As long as the company is based in UK and will perform their work in the UK then how does that make any difference? The odd business travel won't make or break a decision of whom would get the assingment.

I'd imagine it's probably being a bit over played, but there'll definitely be businesses that think along these ruthless lines. It's not going to make a jot of difference to the majority of low skilled workers though.
Making mistakes is how you learn.
Every generation must fight the same battles again and again and again. There is no final victory, and there is no final defeat, and so a little bit of history may help.
“What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?” If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system.
That is why no one with power likes democracy and that is why every generation must struggle to win it and keep it – including you and me, here and now.

There are plenty of mentions of job placings (including one from Ryanair) where it clearly states ability to work across the EU will be required. The thread is based on reality, not conjecture.

Ryanair operates a lot of routes outside of UK and they and other airline companies tend to use staff based in one of the contries of the route they are flying.  :dontknow: I'm not saying it won't result in jobs that potentially would have been given to UK workers will be given to EU residents, but I think the scenario is probably blown out of proportions because UK airline staff normally wouldn't get a position for routes that are not connected with UK anyway?

That's wrong, the staff for the flight is based upon where the plane is based at.  It's to allow flexibility in changing bases.

It is pretty cynical that they've gone right round the world to find a white country that doesn't have an official trade deal with the EU, no chance they'd call it an Indian style deal.

They might as well. Considering the Brexit supporters I come across, talk as if they understand worldwide trade better than all the experts.

I actually thought that was better than the two minute things, there’s only so many John Oliver type rants you can do.

Apparently some airports are directing Brits to the non-EU queue.
