Post Brexit, does the UK face a shortage of skilled people?

So we voted to leave the European Union on June 23rd, and many people tell us a bright future awaits.

Eurosceptics like Boris Johnson, Liam Fox, or even Nigel Farage can’t sort the skills shortage, or even begin to address it, they have other things to do, so if there is a shortage of skilled people, we are leaving Europe, what do we do and who do we look to for help?
