That would lead to a massive surge in the unemployment figures, at least until the layers of PHBs can be repurposed as sprout pickers, baristas, unicorn wranglers and wipers of OAPs' bottoms in care homes.  Call it a Brexit Bonus.

We did, under a prior regime, tentative cull some management layers. Then in the most recent regime change we added them back x2, so we're back with the millefeuille school of management. But at least you can eat a millefeuille.

In the inevitable post-Brexit shortages we may have to eat PHBs too.  On the whole rats appear more appetising.

An ex-colleague used to tell the story of trying to order fairly ordinary PCs for the RAF. They had to be completely specified, model, version, disk size, memory, the whole lot.
By the time the procurement process had ground its weary way to a conclusion, the vendors no longer sold a machine to that spec. And the RAF were not allowed to buy the replacement, which was either better or cheaper or both.  :facepalm:
They did get the process changed eventually.
