I quite clearly made no comment on foreign labour as being a commodity. Read what I posted, then respond.
There was never any point to Brexit.Ergo - what was the fucking point of Brexit?
You always had control, the UK just chose not to use it.Except for the obvious response that we no longer have free movement of labour that we are unable to control, we can adjust import of labour as we wish. This is a fact, not opinion on whether that is right or wrong. It is what it is. You can "like" it all you like, it won't change reality.
You really think people like farm workers rate living ten to a house in East Anglia for a few months over doing the same thing in Malmo?Yeah, except who the fuck wants to go to Sweden, it's cold and people speak bollocks as a language and nobody lives there.
"they" want to come to the UK because they and we speak English, and they know people here.
It's not as dramatic and international as people like to make it.
But that's the point "all things being equal" you would choose the UK over other EU countries, but all things aren't equal any more.Well, yeah...because that is exactly what they have been doing for the last 20 years. And it's not because of our cuisine (despite alleged hostility).
If they didn't like it then they wouldn't have come here, all things EU being equal and all that.
See above. There's also a driver shortage in the EU so wages are going up, and they can do a fuckton less paperwork driving inside the EU than dealing with UK bollocks.Great stuff, a news report from a random. That's the issue resolved then.
They will come back, because why would they bother going anywhere else? Despite all the fashionable bollocks, the EU is a shit-tip. High unemployment, low wage. It's just not attractive...sorry
He is a knobber, indeed.I love how social media can show us just how fucking stupid MPs can be. How profoundly thick do you have to be to believe this?
It's part of the problem, not the problem. The moment we realise that, the sooner we can do something about it. Waaaah, it's brexit is a fallacy. Unless ofc the UK exit from the EU is causing driver shortages in the EU too, that is. Who knows with frothy mouthed remainers.Two funnies. One from @DaGaffer who sees the essential truth of it and the other from @Raven who dismisses it as "European talks shit, because: EU, obvs."
Fact is, it's not really a problem in the EU as freedom of movement is solving their logistical problems by allowing workforce flexibility.
On your driver point - the EU has shortages but freedom of movement means they can manage them. We no longer can, clearly.Anyway, we were promised the end of days by now,
We didn't have a shortage of fuel drivers.Love it how people are blaming the people for the fuel thing, not the Government.
Ah, from memory that's stage 4 denial; "well at least its not as bad as it could be".Anyway, we were promised the end of days by now, and that was without the Rona. I realise that is disappointing to many, but oh well...
That'll be that shower of incompetents processing renewals by the middle of next year then
No, having dealt with the DVLA before they're pretty bad, and shutting them down for 18 months along with the rest of society is now starting to look like a really stupid idea.Ah, from memory that's stage 4 denial; "well at least its not as bad as it could be".
1. "Let's do something really bad and stupid"
2. "Let's now make the bad and stupid thing the worst possible version of the bad and stupid thing it could be"
3. "Let's now give the people who sold us the bad and stupid thing the power to "manage" the bad and stupid thing even though we all know they are also bad and stupid and actually evil"
4. "Mustn't grumble, it could be worse after all".
