The Chemical Brothers on Brexit: ‘For what?’

Electronic music stars The Chemical Brothers said Brexit was “maddening” and there was no “trade-off” to leaving the European Union.

Speaking to the Guardian to promote their new album “No Geography,” Chemical Brother Ed Simons said Brexit meant “losing something you’re used to having — your rights, whether you use them or not — and for what? There’s no trade-off, which makes me quite angry and sad.”

He added that “you’re going to have something reduced about your country and your own personal opportunities, and that’s being celebrated? It’s maddening.”

Brexit, Simons said, “hits into something about collaboration, this sense of we can do it together. Whatever happens with Brexit, whether it happens or it doesn’t happen, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has now left Britain, it’s not coming back to London, that’s gone. The idea that we are at the centre of people collaborating to make better medicine, that’s gone. It’s really sad.”

The EMA has already moved staff to temporary headquarters in Amsterdam, where construction is underway on a new headquarters, which it plans to move into in November.
