The Vice Chancellor of Oxford University – which has just been declared the best in the world – has warned that Brexit will result in an exodus of academics.
Former Deputy Prime Minister and the Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesperson Nick Clegg said:
“This is another blow to the British people following the EU referendum vote. The government must listen to our own experts who are warning that we will lose vital funding and academic skills to the universities in this country.
“If Theresa May wants to secure a brighter future for young people across the UK she needs to pull her party together and establish a plan that stops our best and brightest from leaving.
"The Liberal Democrats will continue to hold this government to account and not let them get away with misleading the public on such key issues.”
