Falling pound makes our wages less attractive to migrants.
Conditions in Europe have picked up significantly and workers are less driven to accept low wages and disgusting treatment from English bullies.
Overt racism and xenophobia makes people more reluctant to come here.
Apart from the daily racist abuse from idiot Kippers and their ilk, racism and harassment is now official practice. Theresa May in her many years at the Home Office has turned the process of obtaining visas into an offensive and expensive nightmare - the fee of £1,800 being just one aspect of the process which operates to humiliate and frustrate decent people going about their lives. When you explore examples of the way migrants are treated, you appreciate what the rcent election showed - May is not human, she's a nightmare robot willing to make vicious decisions every day as long as they benefit her political agenda. The Tories have no humanity.
Many industries can just shift operations abroad. For example, England was never an ideal country for growing fruit, though polytunnels have been great with 99% of labour being European migrants. That's coming to a screeching halt.
When this insane country decides to try a u-turn it may be a bit late. It will take a great deal to restore the UK's reputation as a destination attractive to migrant workers.
Then maybe the patriots will understand that having your brain surgery done by a lager lout Kipper is not the best way to go.
Of course as the economy falters, the people leaving (or not coming to) the UK will be the young, the mobile, the talented, the ones with marketable qualities. The people left will as always be the less able, the less advantaged, the less mobile: the Kippers, really, and all the impoverished groups they dislike so intensely.
