@24AheadDotCom_ I don't think there's likely to be a huge brain drain from the UK to the USA. Moving here isn't really our thing.

.@purpleclaire: there are lots of Brits, many carpetbaggers, in the US. Braindrain impact on eg Ebola countries is far worse than on England

@24AheadDotCom_ carpetbagger = one who relocates to exploit locals. Not entirely sure my writing novels does that.
