Chuckle ... Looks like the sisters are on one ... One of em talks about "introducing facts" to the thread while conveniently ignoring these facts "Where have all the waiters gone? Back to the EU everyone of them" and "and now theres no-one to pull your great British pint" ... Now the fact Ive had meals and drinks in umpteen of those "pubs" the hate filled OP tells us we wont get food or drinks is ignored and all the sisters want to believe is exactly what they want to believe ... The OP claims all the waiters have gone and you wont get a drink either, thats not true but as normal with the squad I am in the wrong ... Poor darlings

Since posting that I've had an email from our local council, garden waste collection across half the council area has been suspended, in part due to cv-19, but also due to a shortage of trained drivers, that was never a problem prior to Brexit when many of them where from eastern Europe.

So says the bloke who Sponged 4.1 million 25 YEARS AGO to create just 50 jobs ........

I wonder what 4.1 million is worth in todays money? ..........

10 million.....20 million?...........Any Dumbnuts should be able to create more than JUST 50 jobs with that kinda money ...........

We all know that you are as thick as the proverbial, but I've told you before I'll tell you again, as well as creating 50 direct jobs it also funded the regeneration of a industrial wasteland in to a community resource.

Whereas you just stole money off tax payers, some of whom would have been EU immigrants who were contributing more than you tax avoiding benefits scum.

A quick look at a Bedfordshire rag mentions nothing about Brexit being the problem ... https://www.leightonbuzzardonline.co.uk/news/politics/garden-waste-collections-in-leighton-buzzard-and-dunstable-area-temporarily-suspended-3317473 ...

Maybe theres some truck drivers in with these very important doctors and scientists that landed https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9810515/Around-100-migrants-including-five-children-arrive-UK.html ... When I look at all those children mixed in with just a few young males that are arriving it makes me wish some of our very own squad would act rather than preach ... Barry who's currently enjoying an extended Flamborough break in his motor could have given one of those youngsters a lovely holiday, but hey-ho its not to be they'll just end up miles away from him and the other preachy types in some other grotty town and city ... What a shame, poor liccle darlings

And no I don't own the freehold of the regenerated waste land, apart from the piece already owned by the company. The majority of the site remains in public ownership with public access to large tracts of it. That's how regeneration works.

Well I for one think it's an absolute disgrace that this government can't sort out this problem. Pratti thinks paying the French millions of pounds will do the trick, although the police there say they still can't stop it even with this money.

From the rag you have posted a link.
"national shortage of qualified large vehicle drivers"


Last year 15,000 EU drivers left the UK due to Brexit.

From the rag you have posted a link.
"national shortage of qualified large vehicle drivers"


Last year 15,000 EU drivers left the UK due to Brexit.


I thought the current driver shortage was due to COVID? .............

Maybe theres some truck drivers in with these very important doctors and scientists that landed https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9810515/Around-100-migrants-including-five-children-arrive-UK.html ... When I look at all those children mixed in with just a few young males that are arriving it makes me wish some of our very own squad would act rather than preach ... Barry who's currently enjoying an extended Flamborough break in his motor could have given one of those youngsters a lovely holiday, but hey-ho its not to be they'll just end up miles away from him and the other preachy types in some other grotty town and city ... What a shame, poor liccle darlings


Well I for one think it's an absolute disgrace that this government can't sort out this problem. Pratti thinks paying the French millions of pounds will do the trick, although the police there say they still can't stop it even with this money.


I'd rather the millions be spent on putting them straight on to a ferry straight back to France..........But unfortunately "This Government" has to follow stupid Loony Liberal Lefty human rights laws ..........

LOL! Funny how it all seemed to get a lot worse after Brexit eh?

I bet the French are pissing themselves and those extra Gendarmes will be pushing those dinghies out to sea I bet.

Maybe they realised that post Brexit the UK cant send them back to France since we lost the Dublin Agreement. Poor old Kent. Turned into the Lorry park of the UK and the garden of Piss and now is flooded with Migrants. Doesnt Nigel Farage live there?

As for the lack of hospitality staff, clearly all those thousands of business owners across the UK from the Lake District to Norfolk are making it up because one of our members managed to get served a burger and chips in Penrith and a pint of warm sheep shaggers Ale in Norwich.

.



But at least we can claim we have " taken back control "

It was US that decided to give the French Government one million pounds a day - NOT the EU.



p.s. Same applies to the 20 million we gave them in November.

So, clearly, no-one is telling US what to do !

cv-19 has exacerbated a problem caused by the reduced drivers due to Brexit, before the current 'ping crisis' the haulage industry had problems due to the lack of drivers.

"The UK media are blaming the Covid app for supply chain failures in some of our supermarkets.

Yet EU countries - who are also in the midst of the pandemic - are NOT suffering the same supply chain issues.

The British Media are blaming a “pingdemic” ?? for staff shortages, that THEY say are causing the empty supermarket shelves in some areas.
It’s almost as if scrapping Covid restrictions while infection rates were rising, has led to more people being in contact with infected people! Who would have guessed?! Clearly not the British Media.

However, increased infection rates have only led to 620,000 people being ‘pinged’ by the app (which is just working as it is supposed to). Many of those pinged are NHS staff, school children and school staff. This cannot have led to the supply chain issues we are seeing - especially when many supermarket staff are reporting that their bosses are calling on them to ignore the app and keep their phones in their lockers - which would prevent the app from detecting whether they had been in close contact with infected people at work.

Could the supply chain issues, (that only Britain is experiencing) be instead down to, say, lack of lorry drivers as a result of Brexit permits and paperwork causing stock to be stuck in central depots in Europe?

Why aren’t any UK journalists looking into that possibility do you think?"

As I understand it the industry has lost 60,000 jobs.......So as just 15,000 were EU drivers ..........

That indicates to me they've found better paid jobs elsewhere ...........

Fortunately it looks like BREXIT will force the industry to increase wages ..........

So yet another BREXIT Bonus for the British worker ...........

No dont thank me .........

Thats correct and it has been widely reported in the media, neither of the toxic twins want to hear that though and remain in permanent denial despite the overwhelming evidence.

There is also another fact which the FT cover very well explaining how government have effectively shot themselves in the foot by prioritising high skilled immigration making recruitment of European HGV drivers legally impossible as they don't qualify for a skilled worker visa. As with everything else they do, the circus of clowns in Downing street never thought this through properly and this is the result.

James Firth, head of road freight regulatory policy at Logistics UK, which represents freight owners including supermarkets estimates a shortage of 90,000 HGV drivers including an estimate 25,000 EU truckers who have gone home following Brexit.

Tom Cornwell, from the Road Haulage Association, says the driver shortage is "going to be dire". He says there is an issue with recruitment, with many European drivers having "gone back home" due to Brexit."

And from the FT;

An exodus of EU lorry drivers from the UK since Brexit has left the British haulage and logistics industry facing an acute staff shortage and a looming crisis for industrial and retail deliveries, the sector has warned.

While the sector has endured chronic driver shortages in recent decades, these have become acute thanks to a “triple whammy” of Brexit ending recruitment from the EU, a backlog of driving tests caused by Covid-19 and self-employment tax reforms that have exacerbated the outflow of EU drivers.

Paul Day, the managing director of Turners Soham Ltd, a major trucking company with 2,300 lorries in Cambridgeshire whose driver workforce is made up of approximately 40 per cent eastern Europeans, said cracks were already starting to show.

“Within three months, goods won’t get delivered. In fact, it’s already happening, there are already loads that are not being covered now,” he said,

The driver shortage is an early test of the government post-Brexit immigration policies which prioritise high-skilled immigration and make it legally impossible to recruit foreign HGV drivers, an occupation that is not deemed sufficiently skilled to be eligible for the skilled worker visa.

Ooooooh calm down dear! Your getting your panties in a twist again.

Yes as I explained to you a while back, France and Germany also have staffing problems because during the pandemic many found better jobs which probably also applies here but its worse here mainly because of Brexit because the EU is where most of the workers from the heavily effected areas came from.

I dont really want economic migrants coming here as you know (I am fine with genuine asylum seekers) but I just find it somewhat amusing that somehow yet again Brexiteers assumed that their batty Brexit would resolve all that, it hasnt, its made it worse. Told yah it would.

I wonder if they have checked to see if a foreign country has hijacked the ping system, and is sending everyone home to screw up our economy ?
