Long time passing

Where have all the waiters gone, not so long ago

Where have all the waiters gone?

Back to the EU every one of them

Oh, when will they ever return?

Never, not to a country which made them unwelcome........and now the Daily Wail suddenly realises a sh1ttload of hospitality staff were from abroad and Brits won't work for low pay, the pubs open after lockdown, and now there's no-one to pull your great British pint.

Since easing of lockdown my missus has eaten twice locally with no service issues ... Just had 5 days cycling on our government backed bikes around the lovely East Yorkshire coast, had 2 meals out with no service issues ... The Ship Inn had 5 staff waiting on folk and all of em spoke their mother tongue English perfectly ... Sometimes reality gets in the way of hatey scaremongering ... Be happy

Trouble is if they voted for Brexit their mind-set will be that such work is below them because they feel they are a superior race born of the british empire so they'll just hang around home dragging their knuckles along the ground blaming the germans for starting the second world war and not being able to play football in 1966.

We aren't talking of isolated cases here where the village tea shop had no applicants for a counter assistant or a town pub unable to get a bar worker. It's heads of the entire hospitality industry.

Jeremy King, the co-founder of the restaurant group Corbin & King, told i: “Nobody quite realised how many people we had from Europe.

“They were marooned here in the pandemic and were treated quite badly. We have a Home Secretary who shows no respect for the sector, our third largest employer.

“They headed home and some don’t want to come back, and who can blame them? Others who do can’t get back."

Hull voted to leave by 68%! Oh dear. Not only will those fishermen have to be waiters now they will no doubt be serving the fish they used to catch now landed by the Norwegians and sold to us tariff free!

So who to believe? The directors of the Cumbria Chamber of Commerce and Cumbria Tourism, or Tweetiepie?

Well it looks like the survey carried out by the paper provides a accurate answer.

Our survey says:
223 vacancies across 75 establishments.
Average of three vacancies per establishment.
75% of establishments are hiring now.
71% of places hiring need front of house and 65% need chefs.
A quarter of places not hiring have just taken on new staff.
Most in need: 1: Derwenidioter Hotel, Portinscale (19); 2: North Lakes Hotel, Penrith (15): 3: Another Place, the Lake, Ullswater (12).

Lordy ... I point out numerous times I have had no issue with what the Hollywood OP claimed, "theres no one to pull your great British pint" and you go all tizzy ... I have had numerous pints and theres always been someone to pull it which totally goes against what the OP was boldly claiming ... As for Cumbria it has always had issues with hospitality employment, my daughter and SIL were both at university in Cumbria and never had any shortage of hospitality jobs while there ...

He could of course simply pay a better wage and offer decent working conditions so that he can attract UK nationals. After all, part of the reason people wanted Brexit in the first place because they claimed FOM apparently depressed wages.

LOL! Can you imagine his customers reaction (who all voted for Brexit) when they go for their warm piss beer breakfast and its doubled in price because Tims had to pay a decent wage to attract British workers?

It just staggers me how someone so Dim who can hardly string two words together has built up such a huge chain of pubs and been so successful.

So who to believe? The directors of the Cumbria Chamber of Commerce and Cumbria Tourism, or Tweetiepie?

Well it looks like the survey carried out by the paper provides a accurate answer.

Our survey says:
223 vacancies across 75 establishments.
Average of three vacancies per establishment.
75% of establishments are hiring now.
71% of places hiring need front of house and 65% need chefs.
A quarter of places not hiring have just taken on new staff.
Most in need: 1: Derwenidioter Hotel, Portinscale (19); 2: North Lakes Hotel, Penrith (15): 3: Another Place, the Lake, Ullswater (12).



Lordy ... I point out numerous times I have had no issue with what the Hollywood OP claimed, "theres no one to pull your great British pint" and you go all tizzy ... I have had numerous pints and theres always been someone to pull it which totally goes against what the OP was boldly claiming ... As for Cumbria it has always had issues with hospitality employment, my daughter and SIL were both at university in Cumbria and never had any shortage of hospitality jobs while there ... Try again, if you must

LOL! Can you imagine his customers reaction (who all voted for Brexit) when they go for their warm piss beer breakfast and its doubled in price because Tims had to pay a decent wage to attract British workers?

It just staggers me how someone so Dim who can hardly string two words together has built up such a huge chain of pubs and been so successful.

As far as exploiting suppliers goes you have I presume heard of buying power, the larger and more successful a company becomes then that company can negotate better terms from their suppliers ...

So it seems the news about the Lake District in dire trouble with staffing problems is of course true. 68% of businesses are struggling with staffing issues. My local news channel includes Cumbria and they just ran a piece on it and interviewed some local hoteliers. The main reason? Of course, Brexit! 50% of their staff come from the EU or at least they did. Many places are having to reduce opening times and in the case of hotels the number of rooms available. The are calling on the government to change their immigration policy. LOL. Good luck with that one.

It was always going to happen. I predicted exactly this way back because the Lake district relies on staff so much from the EU as its a large area with pretty much zero unemployment. Workers from other counties simply dont want to go and work there.

Bit more here. This report also cites other reasons but its clear from todays news and from the actual business owners that Brexit is to blame.

They need to contact Brainfarts SIL and daughter as it seems they spent their time serving the Cumbrian hospitality industry.

For too long the industry has relied on paying low wages for working long and unsocial hours, well those times are disappearing. Many where laid off and realised there where other opportunities out there and are not going back.

It's an industry that pays what it needs and can afford. If wages go up expect the price of a pint and pub lunch to follow.

But its also a industry that historically has provided employment to students from both here and abroad, even thirty years ago I worked in a bar whilst a student in a bar in Liverpool, I also spent a season working in a ski resort in France when I graduated before I started a proper job. The other side of that equation was the young Europeans working in the hospitality industry here. That path to cultural enrichment is now closed.

In the lake district the hospitality industry has always employed students, but there aren't enough to go around, so 40% of the staff were European. Not anymore. There is just 1% unemployment, it's a ageing population so any hope of filling these roles is fanciful. Hence the outcry from the industry.

It's always been poorly paid and Brexiteers blamed it on those funny foreigner folk for keeping the wages low. But now they've gone and aren't coming back, so now is their chance for people like Brexiteers champion Tim Witherspoon to pay a decent wage to British workers instead of wailing he now wants EU workers......that ship sailed and they aren't coming back.

Brexiteers will have to start paying more for their booze 'n food. After all.......it's what they voted for.

Yes me too! Of course just because you waltz into one place and there seems to be plenty of staff does not mean there isnt a problem which there clearly is as 68% of lakeland business owners say there is! Are they making it up?

Penrith is not typical either, its a working town on the M6 on the edge of the Lake District and the people working there are generally locals much more than in the heart of the Lake District. I had boats on Windermere and Ullswater for years and many friends there with businesses and all of them employed foreign workers because they really had no choice.

Its uncomfortable I know but I have waltzed into a lot more than just one place and had no issues ... I believe it was you or one of your fellow fairy tail story tellers that had to back track on Tim Martin the other day ... If you manage to look at staffing in hospitality without your hate goggles on then maybe you might see that because of covid and UK staycations all tourist areas are having a boom so demand is going to be unusually high, the same can be said of France and Germany who also have hospitality staffing issues which you choose to ignore ... The fella on here that originally posted the claim that there would be no one to pull that great British pint has been made to look rather foolish once again and you, him and the gang dont like folk like me pointing that out

Hotels in the Lake district are used to being at full capacity in the summer. As said 68% of them are struggling with staffing issues mainly because of a lack of EU workers so Brexit is chiefly to blame. Demand will be high but many are turning people away because they no longer have the staff to cope.

You can deny it all you want or use your own experience of the odd bar you have been in but I think I would prefer to believe what over two thirds of Lake District business owners are telling us.

I have no idea what you are on about re Dim Tim Martin.

I am not a Brexteer, but have clearly seen how the likes of Wetherspoons and care companies have used 'cheap' EU labour to keep costs low. As you say, those days have gone and we are now having to think about the rising costs of paying a decent living wage.

Went to the Lake District today. Towns like Keswick etc were stacked and very busy. I saw some irate bloke with an I love Nigel Farage T shirt on complaining that he couldnt get served in Penrith.

"No one to serve your great British pint" update ... We were expecting to go very hungry and very thirsty in Penrith given the well informed warning on here by the OP but to our pleasant surprise though busy because of the beautiful weather The Board and Elbow managed very well to pull pints and serve food with what sounded like English staff ... Hoping to get back the lakes for a few days in a couple of weeks and then we have a music festival so more updates on the desperate situation to follow

Like I said, Penrith is probably not so badly hit as its a large working town with a large (for Cumbria) "local" population. Did you go in any of the shops or bars? They will also be mainly staffed by locals, you can tell as they all have the same accent. (I can do a great Cumbrian accent by the way). The rest of the Lake District however is a different matter and you can deny there is a problem all you want but 68% of business owners say that there is.

Yes it says "As a small market town relying quite heavily on the tourist trade, Penrith benefits from a mix of some high street chain stores and many small local specialist shops. However, many shops have given way to businesses such as banks, building societies and travel agents."

Its still a working town with a population of 15000+ and very few foreign workers compared to other parts of the lake district. I practically had a second home there for years when I had a boat on Ullswater. I have lots of friends there so I know it well and the people. All the pubs, bars and hotels I used to frequent in the rest of the lake district were predominately staffed by Europeans. I think its something like 47% overall were European staff but in the areas away from the large towns like Penrith, Workington etc that percentage is or was much higher. Thats mainly where the issue now is and its mainly down to one thing, Brexit.

Ask your daughter then if she agrees with what I said regarding Penrith. I bet she does.

As for France and Germany, well according to your article you linked to it seems during lockdown a lot of workers in hospitality just found better jobs or had a rethink of professions. Thats potentially a double whammy for us then as if less foreign workers are wanting to work in hospitality and they cant come and work here anyway or dont want to due to our hostile environment that Brexit has created then it just makes the problem worse.

Not sure what your point is, you could argue that London, Liverpool, Leeds are all working cities yet they rely heavily on tourists or those visiting for the day ...

Brexit is the issue here. Its all about geography with places like the lakes. They have next to zero unemployment but the jobs are in places that are too far for Brits to take them on and of course many of them are minimum wage. London, Liverpool and Leeds its not so much of an issue. If you go back through the Brexit wars threads you will find several from myself predicting this exact outcome for places like the Lake District. There will be other industry sectors and locations around the UK also effected.

So my point is, no Brexit no problem. Thats all there is to it.

Don't be daft....you know what his answer to that will be!

Back on topic though, were staff falling over themselves to serve you in various hostelries you imbibed and were they all speaking in their mother tongue, English? Apparently the latter is important to Antony for some strange reason he appears to believe foreign workers incapable of speaking English, where in reality they speak better English than he does and in some case will be multi-lingual.

Thats potentially a double whammy for us then as if less foreign workers are wanting to work in hospitality and they cant come and work here anyway or dont want to due to our hostile environment that Brexit has created then it just makes the problem worse.


Not sure what your point is, you could argue that London, Liverpool, Leeds are all working cities yet they rely heavily on tourists or those visiting for the day ... Your France/Germany/hostile environment/Brexit comment is just silliness ... Its clear you want Brexit to be the issue here for supposed staff shortages and in blinkered Barry world everything gets blamed on the Tories and Brexit


Brexit is the issue here. Its all about geography with places like the lakes. They have next to zero unemployment but the jobs are in places that are too far for Brits to take them on and of course many of them are minimum wage. London, Liverpool and Leeds its not so much of an issue. If you go back through the Brexit wars threads you will find several from myself predicting this exact outcome for places like the Lake District. There will be other industry sectors and locations around the UK also effected.

So my point is, no Brexit no problem. Thats all there is to it.


Like I said previously you want Brexit to be the issue and your final comment confirms that "no Brexit no problem. Thats all there is to it" ... Pointless going on with ya, doesnt change the fact that where I have been there are plenty of folk to pull that "great British pint" regardless of the fairytale claim from the OP

"No one to serve your great British pint" update ... We were expecting to go very hungry and very thirsty in Penrith given the well informed warning on here by the OP but to our pleasant surprise though busy because of the beautiful weather The Board and Elbow managed very well to pull pints and serve food with what sounded like English staff ... Hoping to get back the lakes for a few days in a couple of weeks and then we have a music festival so more updates on the desperate situation to follow


Like I said, Penrith is probably not so badly hit as its a large working town with a large (for Cumbria) "local" population. Did you go in any of the shops or bars? They will also be mainly staffed by locals, you can tell as they all have the same accent. (I can do a great Cumbrian accent by the way). The rest of the Lake District however is a different matter and you can deny there is a problem all you want but 68% of business owners say that there is.


I know you know best as always but just take a look at the Penrith wiki link, concentrate on the opening line about the economy ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penrith,_Cumbria ... As for denying there is a problem, I havent ... I have simply offered what I have found out and about and that contradicts the OPs wild, Hollywood claim ... France and Germany seem to have a problem with hospitality workers n'all which you seem to want to ignore so I would "plead" with you as Brian puts it to look with "unbiased" Tory hate goggles and look at the bigger picture


Yes it says "As a small market town relying quite heavily on the tourist trade, Penrith benefits from a mix of some high street chain stores and many small local specialist shops. However, many shops have given way to businesses such as banks, building societies and travel agents."

Its still a working town with a population of 15000+ and very few foreign workers compared to other parts of the lake district. I practically had a second home there for years when I had a boat on Ullswater. I have lots of friends there so I know it well and the people. All the pubs, bars and hotels I used to frequent in the rest of the lake district were predominately staffed by Europeans. I think its something like 47% overall were European staff but in the areas away from the large towns like Penrith, Workington etc that percentage is or was much higher. Thats mainly where the issue now is and its mainly down to one thing, Brexit.


I think thats you accepting Penrith relies "heavily on the tourist trade" ... As for "practically" living in Penrith, my daughter did live in Penrith for 4 years so maybe there aint much you can tell me about the pubs and eating out spots ... You blame supposed staffing shortages here in Blighty on "one thing"' Brexit, does the same apply to France and Germanys hospitality staff shortages???


Ask your daughter then if she agrees with what I said regarding Penrith. I bet she does.

Don't be daft....you know what his answer to that will be!

Back on topic though, were staff falling over themselves to serve you in various hostelries you imbibed and were they all speaking in their mother tongue, English? Apparently the latter is important to Antony for some strange reason he appears to believe foreign workers incapable of speaking English, where in reality they speak better English than he does and in some case will be multi-lingual.


Talking of fairytale claims from the threads OP, I dont recall ever claiming "foreign workers incapable of speaking English" ... BG goes to Hollywood, yet again

Ah I see, because you got served ok in Penrith which I already explained about there is no problem because of EU Staff shortages because of Brexit. 68% of Cumbrian business owners which is thousands by the way are simply making it up because they are anti Brexit like me. Glad we cleared that up.

London, Liverpool and Leeds its not so much of an issue. If you go back through the Brexit wars threads you will find several from myself predicting this exact outcome for places like the Lake District. There will be other industry sectors and locations around the UK also effected.

So my point is, no Brexit no problem. Thats all there is to it.


Like I said previously you want Brexit to be the issue and your final comment confirms that "no Brexit no problem. Thats all there is to it" ... Pointless going on with ya, doesnt change the fact that where I have been there are plenty of folk to pull that "great British pint" regardless of the fairytale claim from the OP


Ah I see, because you got served ok in Penrith which I already explained about there is no problem because of EU Staff shortages because of Brexit. 68% of Cumbrian business owners which is thousands by the way are simply making it up because they are anti Brexit like me. Glad we cleared that up.


Seriously, whats wrong with you??? ... Concentrating just on the lakes in the past few weeks I have been served food and drinks in Penrith, Keswick, Pooley Bridge, Windermere, Derwent Water and Troutbeck Head with no issues ... I am posting up what I have experienced in those places in the lakes and you don't like that I am showing that the wild, Hollywood claim by the OP is just not true, maybe others have had different experiences???


Whats wrong with me?

Can you explain then why over two thirds of lake district business owners are desperately struggling with staff and why they are claiming its mainly because of Brexit? I bet they are all pesky remainers eh? Making it up. Jeez


Chuckle ... Barry ignores I have had no issues getting my "great British pint" and more in the lakes ... Now you seem to be a little confused as you now say lake district business are struggling to employ staff "mainly" because of that nasty Brexit yet only a couple of posts ago you said "no Brexit no problem. Thats all there is to it" ... So your THATS ALL THERE IS TO IT according to lakes business owners isnt actually true ... Like I said previously you want Brexit to be the problem and anything else just isnt Barry ... Hate on

Talking of fairytale claims from the threads OP, I dont recall ever claiming "foreign workers incapable of speaking English" ... BG goes to Hollywood, yet again

Had you learned reading and writing at nursery you'd have understood the post but because you obviously lack the skill to comprehend basic English it's beyond you. You just make yourself look a very silly little boy attempting to twist fm's posts out of context.....you aren't clever enough to do that.


I dont have to be "clever" to show others what youve posted or claimed on here as your posts are there for all to see in black and white ...

Yes my posts are on here for all to see hence the reason everyone can see you selectively quoted just six words from a sentence and tried spinning it so lets have a look at that sentence in full so we have the correct context.

"Apparently the latter is important to Antony for some strange reason he appears to believe foreign workers incapable of speaking English, where in reality they speak better English than he does and in some case will be multi-lingual."

Now, to help you further i've bolded the important words you left out which gives context to exactly what i'd written rather than the selectively edited version you attempted to spin but failed, as usual.

"No one to serve your great British pint" update ... We were expecting to go very hungry and very thirsty in Penrith given the well informed warning on here by the OP but to our pleasant surprise though busy because of the beautiful weather The Board and Elbow managed very well to pull pints and serve food with what sounded like English staff ... Hoping to get back the lakes for a few days in a couple of weeks and then we have a music festival so more updates on the desperate situation to follow


Like I said, Penrith is probably not so badly hit as its a large working town with a large (for Cumbria) "local" population. Did you go in any of the shops or bars? They will also be mainly staffed by locals, you can tell as they all have the same accent. (I can do a great Cumbrian accent by the way). The rest of the Lake District however is a different matter and you can deny there is a problem all you want but 68% of business owners say that there is.


I know you know best as always but just take a look at the Penrith wiki link, concentrate on the opening line about the economy ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penrith,_Cumbria ... As for denying there is a problem, I havent ... I have simply offered what I have found out and about and that contradicts the OPs wild, Hollywood claim ... France and Germany seem to have a problem with hospitality workers n'all which you seem to want to ignore so I would "plead" with you as Brian puts it to look with "unbiased" Tory hate goggles and look at the bigger picture


Yes it says "As a small market town relying quite heavily on the tourist trade, Penrith benefits from a mix of some high street chain stores and many small local specialist shops. However, many shops have given way to businesses such as banks, building societies and travel agents."

Its still a working town with a population of 15000+ and very few foreign workers compared to other parts of the lake district. I practically had a second home there for years when I had a boat on Ullswater. I have lots of friends there so I know it well and the people. All the pubs, bars and hotels I used to frequent in the rest of the lake district were predominately staffed by Europeans. I think its something like 47% overall were European staff but in the areas away from the large towns like Penrith, Workington etc that percentage is or was much higher. Thats mainly where the issue now is and its mainly down to one thing, Brexit.


I think thats you accepting Penrith relies "heavily on the tourist trade" ... As for "practically" living in Penrith, my daughter did live in Penrith for 4 years so maybe there aint much you can tell me about the pubs and eating out spots ... You blame supposed staffing shortages here in Blighty on "one thing"' Brexit, does the same apply to France and Germanys hospitality staff shortages???


Ask your daughter then if she agrees with what I said regarding Penrith. I bet she does.

As for France and Germany, well according to your article you linked to it seems during lockdown a lot of workers in hospitality just found better jobs or had a rethink of professions. Thats potentially a double whammy for us then as if less foreign workers are wanting to work in hospitality and they cant come and work here anyway or dont want to due to our hostile environment that Brexit has created then it just makes the problem worse.


Not sure what your point is, you could argue that London, Liverpool, Leeds are all working cities yet they rely heavily on tourists or those visiting for the day ... Your France/Germany/hostile environment/Brexit comment is just silliness ... Its clear you want Brexit to be the issue here for supposed staff shortages and in blinkered Barry world everything gets blamed on the Tories and Brexit


Brexit is the issue here. Its all about geography with places like the lakes. They have next to zero unemployment but the jobs are in places that are too far for Brits to take them on and of course many of them are minimum wage. London, Liverpool and Leeds its not so much of an issue. If you go back through the Brexit wars threads you will find several from myself predicting this exact outcome for places like the Lake District. There will be other industry sectors and locations around the UK also effected.

So my point is, no Brexit no problem. Thats all there is to it.

Chuckle. Sounding a bid desperate now, I threw you a bit of a bone there eh? Yes covid may have played a small part but ultimately its down to Brexit. Even Dim Tim Martin now realises that. The man that campaigned very publicly for a hard no deal Brexit and exit of the single market which of course ended the free movement of a lot of EU Bar staff now says he now backs a "reasonably liberal" immigration system. You couldnt make it up. I really hope he his hit hard in the wallet and I have no sympathy whatsoever for people like him.

Few Brexiteers can see his hypocrisy either. I've never been in one but apparently it's cheap prices? If so they'll have to start paying more for their pint if they want British bar staff.

I went in one a couple of years back while out Christmas shopping in Darlington and waiting for my wife. Got bored so braved the local Brexit HQ Wetherpoons. They even had Brexit beer mats! It was grim. Full of red faced angry looking blokes. I just pretended to look all grumpy and Brexity although I almost ordered a Gin and Tonic which would have been a fatal mistake.

I dont think I have had a Kebab for maybe five years and certainly not in the UK. I do like the occasional bit of Fish from our award winning chippy though.

As for you comments above re Covid, clutching at straws springs to mind. Just admit it, here we have a prime example of exactly what damage ending free movement of people has done. Why else would Dim Tim now be crying and whinging on about a "Liberal immigration policy" after he campaigned so hard for the exact opposite?

Even Dim Tim Martin now realises that. The man that campaigned very publicly for a hard no deal Brexit and exit of the single market which of course ended the free movement of a lot of EU Bar staff now says he now backs a "reasonably liberal" immigration system. You couldnt make it up. I really hope he his hit hard in the wallet and I have no sympathy whatsoever for people like him.

Few Brexiteers can see his hypocrisy either. I've never been in one but apparently it's cheap prices? If so they'll have to start paying more for their pint if they want British bar staff.


I went in one a couple of years back while out Christmas shopping in Darlington and waiting for my wife. Got bored so braved the local Brexit HQ Wetherpoons. They even had Brexit beer mats! It was grim. Full of red faced angry looking blokes. I just pretended to look all grumpy and Brexity although I almost ordered a Gin and Tonic which would have been a fatal mistake.

Eh ... Dont you go travelling for 6 months of the year, every year, mainly to Flamborough and when your in said Flamborough you do seem to frequent the local fish and chip shops rather a lot??? ... You seem to have some fixation with "DimTim" that successful multi-millionaire businessman for some reason

I think I did ask earlier up the thread how somebody who comes across as thick as mince has been so successful. Exploiting staff and suppliers was one suggestion.

That comes across as very angry ... Do you have a mobile number she can ring and discuss with you, maybe she can during the conversation give you the number of the pub she visited for you to ring and discuss with them any staffing issues ... If the weather is fine Sunday we are back at the lakes with the kayak so we will be having a meal later in Penrith which I will comment on in your hate thread, would you like the number of the pub??? ...

Mmm ... I have just explained to you how we can go about that but you dont like it ... Tell you what, give me your mobile number which I unlike you will promise not to disclose your personal details on here and come Sunday I can FaceTime you in the pub we eat in and you will see for yourself just how difficult it is to get served that great British pint ... Couldn't be easier ... Is that a deal yes or no, quite simple and then you can post up the video on here

We already have the evidence from 67% of Cumbrian business owners. Perhaps some might be disgruntled Remainers eh? Although five out of six regions in Cumbria voted to leave amazingly. However because Mr Birdbrain and his family managed to get a burger and a pint of Sheeps Droppings Ale from a town on the outskirts of the lake district they must be making it all up then.

Its not that I dont like it, that would be absurd. Its just that your handful of experiences in certain towns does not disprove the claim from thousands (over two thirds) of business owners in Cumbria that there is a huge problem.

Not just waiters and bar staff it seems

What are Indian builders like? Seeing as Johnson allowed the Indian Variant into the UK in a desperate attempt to appease Modi for a trade deal perhaps free movement will be on the cards with India!

We already have the evidence from 67% of Cumbrian business owners. Perhaps some might be disgruntled Remainers eh? Although five out of six regions in Cumbria voted to leave amazingly. However because Mr Birdbrain and his family managed to get a burger and a pint of Sheeps Droppings Ale from a town on the outskirts of the lake district they must be making it all up then.


Mmmm ... I had a diet coke actually so as usual your wrong ... I have posted up the other places I have been served food and drinks with no issue since the lifting of lockdown princess, not just Penrith... I was initially responding to the OPs original hate posting where he claimed all the waiters have gone and theres no one to pull that great British pint, I have shown in my experience that simply is not true and you and him dont like it ...

I haven't ever said there wasn't an issue, I actually posted up other European countries are having issues but you chose to ignore it ... What I have challenged is the Hollywood claim from your organ grindr, the Hollywood claim that said "Where have all the waiters gone?", well I have shown that in my experience with food and drink all those waiters havent gone and I have shown that in my experience I can still get a pint even though your organ grindr claims "theres no one to pull your great British pint" ... You and him/her dont like that I challenge the claim, your problem not mine

UPDATE ... Great day ended with a lovely meal at a nice pizza/pasta spot in Penrith ... Waitress saw us straight in and managed to order us some drinks ... Lovely meal, plenty of staff and no issues at all ... Once again I see nothing to back up the OPs wild Hollywood claim that all the waiters have gone and theres no one to pull that great British pint ... Stuff of fantasy

Had a surprise Fathers Day meal out yesterday n'all which was lovely ... Cant say I noticed any difference in service in the place we ate than the last time I went there ... Seemed to be plenty of "waiters" and plenty of those great British pints being served ... In my experience of eating and drinking out since lockdown restrictions were lifted I havent seen or had a single issue so I can only conclude the OPs very Hollywood claim is hot air as usual ... Will report further

For the first time ever we've seen a restaurant closed due to a 'staffing crisis', still the fish and chip shop was doing well.

Not just experts but CEO's of the licensing trade who speak for the industry as a whole.......not just one pub a disruptive forum troll walks into and decides he knows better than them. After all, even arch Brexiteer Witherspoon has been wimpering about the loss of EU staff only a few weeks ago......the very thing he gleefully supported five years ago by voting Brexit.

The thread title says "Where have all the waiters gone?", its a question that suggests all, not some of the waiters have gone ... I have answered the question quoting my experiences that all the waiters havent gone and I dont need an expert for that ... The OP then makes another Hollywood hate claim "and now theres no-one to pull your great british pint", hes not quoting any expert hes telling us what he wants to be true in Hollywood hate world, trouble is in my experience that claim is fairytale hate tosh and I dont need an expert for that either ... As usual it seems you and the squad dont care for a bit of down to earth reality

So why has Grant Shapps (or Michael Green, Corinne Stockheath, Sebastian Fox as he likes to be known) watered down H&S legislation?

The difference is those people in France and Germany have just moved on and decided they can do better out of that industry. That kind of highlights the major problem we have here. Its even less likely Brits will do these jobs now that there is no easy way to get European staff because firstly they never wanted to do them in the first place or it was geographically difficult and maybe those that did also found better jobs during the pandemic. So we have a double whammy here. Shortage of EU workers and even less Brits wanting to do the work.

Never mind. Hows that trade deal with India coming along? If it includes free movement Wetherspoons can fill its pubs with Indians. That will go down well with the usual clientele.

Back to the real world and I enjoyed a lovely lunch in Cockermouth today, that place always makes me feel you should live there, no delays, no problem getting food and no problem getting a drink either ... My list is growing weekly of places where I have seen plenty of waiters and never been short of anyone pulling that "great British pint" ... On Thursday we are away to Norfolk for a short 5-6 days so will update as we find ... Anyone interested in my ever-growing no issues places to eat or drink list can PM me or I might put up the list for all to see as part of a public duty service on behalf to show lying for what it is

5 or 6 days in Norfolk today so hopefully I can report back that those Norfolk types aren't starving or dying of thirst due to there being no waiters or pint pullers as the OP claimed ... If anyone wants to send me their mobile number I can film me and Mrs Birdbrain being served food and drinks and they can then show the unbiased Chatterbox crew whats really happening outside their bedrooms ...

Fake News Claim Update ... Norfolk, or certainly the part of Norfolk we've just been to still has waiters and you can still get that "great British pint" regardless of the fake claim made by the OP ... Anyone wanting the list of places now visited since the fake claim can PM me ... We have a meal out on Friday at lovely Holmfirth so will update as to wether we left due to no food or drinks being served ... Thankyou

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.

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 ... I do recall a shortage of plumbers a few years ago nationally, wonder now if that was due to Brexit ... A few old links explains European trucker shortages https://www.espaceglobalfreight.com/european-truck-driver-shortage/ ... https://www.bifa.org/news/articles/2018/dec/truck-driver-shortage-crisis-now-spreading-across-the-whole-of-europe ...

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.

"national shortage of qualified large vehicle drivers"


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

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.


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 ... I do recall a shortage of plumbers a few years ago nationally, wonder now if that was due to Brexit ... A few old links explains European trucker shortages https://www.espaceglobalfreight.com/european-truck-driver-shortage/ ... https://www.bifa.org/news/articles/2018/dec/truck-driver-shortage-crisis-now-spreading-across-the-whole-of-europe ... Brexit is obviously the cause for Europes shortage of drivers n'all I guess

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 !

"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.

Foul language? What are you talking about? Even the forum sensor allows PISS on here and thanks to Brexit Kent is now the Garden of Piss. It was even in the papers described as so.

It's not me claiming the lack of European staff thanks to Brexit is crippling the hospitality industry it's the hospitality industry! As said even Dim Tim wetherloon has complained about it after he went on national TV several times campaigning about a no deal hard Brexit.

Dont think I've campaigned for migrants to come here just that we should take our share and we still don't apparently.

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.


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.


I bet those Gendarmes are "pi$$ing themselves" ... Win-win for them ... See those that they dont want but you do, just not in your village out to sea and then they dont have to deal with the crime in France they commit and the unrest amongst the French they cause ... I'd do the same ... As for burgers and chips thats not my thing or real ale and I aint never been to Norwich so you score nil points for accuracy yet again ... Ive never said there isnt a lack of hospitality staff princess, its obvious there is in certain areas just like in France and Germany but I dont blindly blame one reason for that and I dont claim all the waiters have gone back to the EU or theres no-one left to pull that great British pint ... You carry on being your organ Grindr's monkey, your good at that


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.


Chuckle ... "Oooooooh calm down dear! Your getting your panties in a twist again" ... Chuckle, your the one getting sweaty and using foul language princess ... I know you kindly explained about France and Germany and its really good of you to do that as your normally so bang on with your explanations ... It seems that explanation only "probably" accounts for a liccle of the staffing shortages here though and "mainly" staff shortages here in your view are down to Brexit so can you post sumat that proves that??? ... Your other guff about not wanting refugees is utter guff, youve fought for them to be here, "we should do more, just not in my village" kinda thing I seem to remember ... Hate away

Eh ... Shouldn't all chip shops be shut ... Along with all restaurants and pubs given you claim all the waiters have gone and theres no-one to pull that great British pint ... One chip shop closed out of over 10.000 in the UK due to a staffing shortage in BG world = Brexit chaos ... Chuckle

Some of these are pretty wealthy I would say with the exception these days of Johnson and Farage. Some supported Brexit, the others supported remain. I suspect I could find more if I could be arsed.

Loony lefty bulls**t? Everyone must be a loony lefty compared to you with maybe the exception of Mr Birdbrain. I have no idea what you are talking about regarding the Guardian. Chances are if you are clever you are probably going to be wealthier than someone who is as thick as mince but not always. The poorer you were the more likely you were to vote for Brexit and vice versa but again, not always (but in the main)

Well as it turns out (so far at least) Brexit has turned out to be a crock of s**t. Maybe not as bad as it would have been if we had crashed out without a deal which of course some were frothing at the mouth for on here but bad enough. Its also led to the worst and most damaging government and leader in political history so if you still think its a good idea then surely you must either be in denial or thick as mince. If its the former, that really is "sad".

Its also led to the worst and most damaging government and leader in political history so if you still think its a good idea then surely you must either be in denial or thick as mince. If its the former, that really is "sad".


Eh ... I ask you to back up your claim and show other thick rich folk with the same wealth as "Dim Tim" and you show some guff about thick Brexit voters versus clever remainers ... Then you call me "thick as mince" for pointing out your pathetic Brexit dig ... Chuckle ... You and man of "humour" Hand Solo should start a double act ... You can be Eddie Large given your waist line and I presume its true what they say about Hand Solo so he has to be Sid Little


Your idol Trump was probably one of the stupidest dumb arse rich people. Theres a good example. Mind you I read that had he just stuck Daddies inheritance money in the bank he would have faired better financially. Dunno if thats true or not but he did go bankrupt (or his businesses did) four times or something but its generally accepted that he has been a wealthy man. Maybe richer than Dim Tim, He was all for Brexit wasnt he Trump?

No, thats the recruitment drive for Dim Tim Wetherloons in Uddersfield.


Chuckle ... Dim Tims that Dim hes worth £450 million ... Boom


There are plenty of thick rich people.


Cool ... Given hes worth £450 million could you name "plenty" of those other "thick rich people" worth that kind of cash und just what makes em thick??? Is it just because they voted for Brexit??? ... Hate away


Some of these are pretty wealthy I would say with the exception these days of Johnson and Farage. Some supported Brexit, the others supported remain. I suspect I could find more if I could be arsed.



Yup ... As I thought ... Just another dig at "thick" Brexit voters and superior "clever Remainers" ... How very, very sad

Show where what the quoted restaurateur states is "obviously so wrong" as you claim. Will you show that? After all, it is his business he was talking about but you think you know better than him. So lets see what you can come up with.

I would say I am more successful by a country mile. Success is not counted in just monetary values is it? All Trump has done is trample on people, abuse black people, assault women, divide his nation. spread hate and fear and generally be what I would call a "Very bad man". Now he is a very bitter bad man although it was clear for may years he has been full of hate and bile and obsessed with himself and his own narcissistic values. I would say I am more successful because I have led a fulfilling life being just the opposite. I have also pretty much achieved everything I wanted to do in life. Oh yeah, I have a fit wife also. At least mine doesnt completely despise me either (least I dont think so)

Of course he became a reality TV star and said all the right things to push the buttons of his bonkers followers, so fame and being a far right populist promising to "make America Great again" was enough I guess but he is still a bit of a thicko lets face it and certainly not someone I would class as successful in many ways.

Ouch ... That hurt ya dint it ... I agree monetary success is not the success in life I aim for ... Just how you know your more successful than POTUS Trump in non-monetary values I would really like to know though as you know nothing, absolutely nothing him about him personally??? ... All those nasty things you say about POTUS Trump while claiming that your the exact opposite him is laughable ... You insult folk and spread lies, you call violence and thuggery "funny", you voted for, campaigned for and carried out much activism for a party full of proven racists etc etc and those are your good points ... As for your wife being "fit" thats great

Not just me but thousands and thousands and thousands of others since your claim that you are now all of a sudden claiming your only quoting have shown your wrong ... All the waiters havent gone, they all havent gone back to the EU and there are plenty of bar folk who can pull a pint ... You dont like that your lies and bitter hate have been bombed in front of your fellow hate sisters ... Next time take more care with your lies ... Im away to Thornton Cleveleys tomorrow which is near Blackpool and we will be having a fish and chip lunch with some friends there, I'll inform you of how I go on ... Why dont you give me your mobile number and I can send you some food pics of me getting served that you can put up on here???

But you said ALL the waiters have gone and all the pint pullers n'all

Antony, if you had a better understanding of basic English you would have noticed my post was in quotes from an article, hence the quotation marks. This is really basic English you should have learned in junior school.

The reporter was speaking to Paul Askew, chef-patron of the Art School restaurant in Liverpool. I didn't link the article but if you can cope with it, here it is; https://tinyurl.com/5end58j4


Aaaah ... You were quoting someone else ... Well that explains it then, those you quote are obviously so wrong and your just so wrong for quoting em ... Chuckle ...

Show where what the quoted restaurateur states is "obviously so wrong" as you claim. Will you show that? After all, it is his business he was talking about but you think you know better than him. So lets see what you can come up with.

The rest of your post is just your usual gibberish and rubbish.


How tiresome ... You claimed in your original post,

You're deflecting because you've made yourself look foolish.....yet again. Stop squirming and tell me what the quoted restaurateur states is "obviously so wrong" as you claimed.

That's his business he was talking about, just as the other restaurateurs and CEO's have spoken about their businesses, yet you believe you know better than any of them so lets see what you can come up with to show they're "obviously so wrong".

You haven't got anything.....just your usual bull and bluster.


Jesus ... Really??? ...

Yes really.

You were unable to dispute what any of the restaurateurs and CEO's reported as they know their business better than you. It was you who was obviously so wrong.......but I knew that, as has been very clear for everyone else on here to see. Don't embarrass yourself any further.

The rest of your rant is the usual gibberish nonsense.

Since your original first Hollywood claim on this thread its taken you 6 pages and 20 further posts to now embarrassingly squirm that you were merely quoting another when pushing your hate lies ... Your original post was your own work as is your title thread which asks the question 'Where have all the waiters gone?", its not you quoting anyone but you asking where ALL the waiters have gone, a question you answer in your first post with "Back to the EU everyone of them ... Its simply not true ... Your squirming now is embarrassing but very entertaining

Since your original first Hollywood claim.....

You're flailing around posting more and more of your utterly insane garbage because your lies have been challenged and you're unable to come up with an excuse.

I asked you to tell me what the quoted restaurateur said is "obviously so wrong" as you claimed.

You couldn't because you had nothing so tried pulling ridiculous ad hominens.

So I asked you what the other restaurateurs and CEO's who have spoken about their businesses over the same matters, acute staff shortages, EU employees who left UK and not returned because of Brexit etc, are "obviously so wrong about".

You still couldn't come up with anything. Not surprising as the people linked are professionals in the catering and hospitality industry which you have zero experience or knowledge of.

Still you persist with trotting out more huff, guff, and bluster attempting to dispute what has been widely reported by national media, speaking to people actually in the industries you foolishly dismiss as being "obviously so wrong" (though you cannot say how).

There have been numerous links posted on this thread relating to the thread subject yet you're so arrogant you believe you know better than any restaurateurs and CEO's.

You don't.

Take a hike and please stop embarrassing yourself further.

Still you carry on ... Princess I aint interested in your quoted link, its your original Hollywood claim I like and will carry on liking and showing up your lies but seen as you persist lets take a look at just one thing in your quoted bit ... Now either your wrong which just isnt possible is it or the fella you now quote is wrong as he says he currently now at this moment has 25 staff which one can only presume includes bar staff and waiters so he kind of wipes out your claim that all the waiters have gone, every single one of them and theres no-one to pull that great British pint ... Well we know that Hanburys continue to operate the take away service and that take away service includes alcohol and food so who's serving it to customers or does it just magically appear??? ... My missus went out for a hen-do meal and drinks last night, I retired to bed before she came home but will have a word shortly to see if the ladies stayed hungry and thirsty as your original post claim would have us all believe ... Why dont you admit you lied again and then we can move on???

Replacement truck drivers, waiters, British pint pullers are on their way ... https://twitter.com/geertwilderspvv/status/1418325308479053826 ... Praise the Lord


No, thats the recruitment drive for Dim Tim Wetherloons in Uddersfield.


Chuckle ... Dim Tims that Dim hes worth £450 million ... Boom


There are plenty of thick rich people.


Cool ... Given hes worth £450 million could you name "plenty" of those other "thick rich people" worth that kind of cash und just what makes em thick??? Is it just because they voted for Brexit??? ... Hate away


Some of these are pretty wealthy I would say with the exception these days of Johnson and Farage. Some supported Brexit, the others supported remain. I suspect I could find more if I could be arsed.



Yup ... As I thought ... Just another dig at "thick" Brexit voters and superior "clever Remainers" ... How very, very sad


Well as it turns out (so far at least) Brexit has turned out to be a crock of s**t. Maybe not as bad as it would have been if we had crashed out without a deal which of course some were frothing at the mouth for on here but bad enough. Its also led to the worst and most damaging government and leader in political history so if you still think its a good idea then surely you must either be in denial or thick as mince. If its the former, that really is "sad".


Eh ... I ask you to back up your claim and show other thick rich folk with the same wealth as "Dim Tim" and you show some guff about thick Brexit voters versus clever remainers ... Then you call me "thick as mince" for pointing out your pathetic Brexit dig ... Chuckle ... You and man of "humour" Hand Solo should start a double act ... You can be Eddie Large given your waist line and I presume its true what they say about Hand Solo so he has to be Sid Little


Your idol Trump was probably one of the stupidest dumb arse rich people. Theres a good example. Mind you I read that had he just stuck Daddies inheritance money in the bank he would have faired better financially. Dunno if thats true or not but he did go bankrupt (or his businesses did) four times or something but its generally accepted that he has been a wealthy man. Maybe richer than Dim Tim, He was all for Brexit wasnt he Trump?





"Dunno if thats true or not", well it aint ever bothered ya before chunky wether stuffs true or not ... As for Mr Trump, one might suggest to come from back from bankruptcy and become POTUS with a net worth of over 2 billion dollars he must be really thick like you say ... Chuckle ... You of course are way more successful ... Hes that thick he has a fit wife n'all ... Hate on princess


I would say I am more successful by a country mile. Success is not counted in just monetary values is it? All Trump has done is trample on people, abuse black people, assault women, divide his nation. spread hate and fear and generally be what I would call a "Very bad man". Now he is a very bitter bad man although it was clear for may years he has been full of hate and bile and obsessed with himself and his own narcissistic values. I would say I am more successful because I have led a fulfilling life being just the opposite. I have also pretty much achieved everything I wanted to do in life. Oh yeah, I have a fit wife also. At least mine doesnt completely despise me either (least I dont think so)

Of course he became a reality TV star and said all the right things to push the buttons of his bonkers followers, so fame and being a far right populist promising to "make America Great again" was enough I guess but he is still a bit of a thicko lets face it and certainly not someone I would class as successful in many ways.


Ouch ... That hurt ya dint it ... I agree monetary success is not the success in life I aim for ... Just how you know your more successful than POTUS Trump in non-monetary values I would really like to know though as you know nothing, absolutely nothing him about him personally??? ... All those nasty things you say about POTUS Trump while claiming that your the exact opposite him is laughable ... You insult folk and spread lies, you call violence and thuggery "funny", you voted for, campaigned for and carried out much activism for a party full of proven racists etc etc and those are your good points ... As for your wife being "fit" thats great


1. Eh? No!

2. I doubt there is a single figure in the world that has been so exposed to the media both as a President and as a cheap reality TV star, of course we all know a lot about him, his life and personality.

3. I dont spread lies

4. I dont call violence and thuggery funny either

5. Bulls**t.

Cool ... Given hes worth £450 million could you name "plenty" of those other "thick rich people" worth that kind of cash und just what makes em thick??? Is it just because they voted for Brexit??? ... Hate away


Some of these are pretty wealthy I would say with the exception these days of Johnson and Farage. Some supported Brexit, the others supported remain. I suspect I could find more if I could be arsed.



Yup ... As I thought ... Just another dig at "thick" Brexit voters and superior "clever Remainers" ... How very, very sad


Well as it turns out (so far at least) Brexit has turned out to be a crock of s**t. Maybe not as bad as it would have been if we had crashed out without a deal which of course some were frothing at the mouth for on here but bad enough. Its also led to the worst and most damaging government and leader in political history so if you still think its a good idea then surely you must either be in denial or thick as mince. If its the former, that really is "sad".


Eh ... I ask you to back up your claim and show other thick rich folk with the same wealth as "Dim Tim" and you show some guff about thick Brexit voters versus clever remainers ... Then you call me "thick as mince" for pointing out your pathetic Brexit dig ... Chuckle ... You and man of "humour" Hand Solo should start a double act ... You can be Eddie Large given your waist line and I presume its true what they say about Hand Solo so he has to be Sid Little


Your idol Trump was probably one of the stupidest dumb arse rich people. Theres a good example. Mind you I read that had he just stuck Daddies inheritance money in the bank he would have faired better financially. Dunno if thats true or not but he did go bankrupt (or his businesses did) four times or something but its generally accepted that he has been a wealthy man. Maybe richer than Dim Tim, He was all for Brexit wasnt he Trump?





"Dunno if thats true or not", well it aint ever bothered ya before chunky wether stuffs true or not ... As for Mr Trump, one might suggest to come from back from bankruptcy and become POTUS with a net worth of over 2 billion dollars he must be really thick like you say ... Chuckle ... You of course are way more successful ... Hes that thick he has a fit wife n'all ... Hate on princess


I would say I am more successful by a country mile. Success is not counted in just monetary values is it? All Trump has done is trample on people, abuse black people, assault women, divide his nation. spread hate and fear and generally be what I would call a "Very bad man". Now he is a very bitter bad man although it was clear for may years he has been full of hate and bile and obsessed with himself and his own narcissistic values. I would say I am more successful because I have led a fulfilling life being just the opposite. I have also pretty much achieved everything I wanted to do in life. Oh yeah, I have a fit wife also. At least mine doesnt completely despise me either (least I dont think so)

Of course he became a reality TV star and said all the right things to push the buttons of his bonkers followers, so fame and being a far right populist promising to "make America Great again" was enough I guess but he is still a bit of a thicko lets face it and certainly not someone I would class as successful in many ways.


Ouch ... That hurt ya dint it ... I agree monetary success is not the success in life I aim for ... Just how you know your more successful than POTUS Trump in non-monetary values I would really like to know though as you know nothing, absolutely nothing him about him personally??? ... All those nasty things you say about POTUS Trump while claiming that your the exact opposite him is laughable ... You insult folk and spread lies, you call violence and thuggery "funny", you voted for, campaigned for and carried out much activism for a party full of proven racists etc etc and those are your good points ... As for your wife being "fit" thats great


1. Eh? No!

2. I doubt there is a single figure in the world that has been so exposed to the media both as a President and as a cheap reality TV star, of course we all know a lot about him, his life and personality.

3. I dont spread lies

4. I dont call violence and thuggery funny either

5. Bulls**t.


1 Chuckle, yes it did
2 Chuckle, you didn't answer
3 Biggest chuckle
4 Chuckle, Colsons statue ... You found that "funny", some of those yobs caught received criminal records so you find those criminals and their vandalism and thuggery "funny"
5 Chuckle, check out the EHRC report into the party you voted for, campaigned for and was an activist for
You can always rely on you to give me a chuckle ... Hate on chunks


1. no it absolutely didnt. you think you spouting off about Sad little Mr Trump being more successful than me "hurt me". I was pissing myself laughing.

2. I did answer. Trumps life is pretty much an open book and now we can add "Loser" to his sado narcissistic nasty little existence.

3. I dont spread lies. name one, just one.

4. Yep. I found the toppling of the racist into the drink funny. It was a bit "Brass Eye" but that was it. i certainly have never condoned violence and thuggery but I Didnt consider that event either

5. Check out the same on the Tory party who have a long legacy of open racism, especially their moron of a leader. I dont agree with the court either. I think its nonsense in the main.

Still you carry on ... Princess I aint interested in your quoted link, its your original Hollywood claim I like

My pleasure Puffball.

Good to see you finally accept you were being ridiculous attempting to claim professional restaurateurs and CEO's were "obviously so wrong" about reasons for their staff shortages when it has been perfectly clear to all except you.

That's why they're professionals within their industries and not some part time odd job roofer in Yorkshire.

How very tedious ... Remember when you said all the waiters had gone, everyone of them and how theres no-one to serve beer ... Well your fish restaurant owner you linked to currently has 25 staff working for him now serving beer and food so one of you is lying, is it you lying or him??? ... I know who my monies on

While I am here ... We had a lovely Sunday dinner roast lunch in Fleetwood today ... We didn't drink alcohol but plenty did ... So once again it looks like the OPs hate claim is a lie ... There are plenty of waiters and plenty of folk serving that great British pint, thats not what the hatey OP would have us believe though ... My list of drinking and eating towns and villages visited since the OPs Hollywood claim is available on request

5. I take very little interest in the anti-Semitism stuff as I am sure 99% of it is just criticism of Israel not racism. I am not and never have been a member of that party so I dont care what Mr Starmer says.

If its the former, that really is "sad".


Eh ... I ask you to back up your claim and show other thick rich folk with the same wealth as "Dim Tim" and you show some guff about thick Brexit voters versus clever remainers ... Then you call me "thick as mince" for pointing out your pathetic Brexit dig ... Chuckle ... You and man of "humour" Hand Solo should start a double act ... You can be Eddie Large given your waist line and I presume its true what they say about Hand Solo so he has to be Sid Little


Your idol Trump was probably one of the stupidest dumb arse rich people. Theres a good example. Mind you I read that had he just stuck Daddies inheritance money in the bank he would have faired better financially. Dunno if thats true or not but he did go bankrupt (or his businesses did) four times or something but its generally accepted that he has been a wealthy man. Maybe richer than Dim Tim, He was all for Brexit wasnt he Trump?





"Dunno if thats true or not", well it aint ever bothered ya before chunky wether stuffs true or not ... As for Mr Trump, one might suggest to come from back from bankruptcy and become POTUS with a net worth of over 2 billion dollars he must be really thick like you say ... Chuckle ... You of course are way more successful ... Hes that thick he has a fit wife n'all ... Hate on princess


I would say I am more successful by a country mile. Success is not counted in just monetary values is it? All Trump has done is trample on people, abuse black people, assault women, divide his nation. spread hate and fear and generally be what I would call a "Very bad man". Now he is a very bitter bad man although it was clear for may years he has been full of hate and bile and obsessed with himself and his own narcissistic values. I would say I am more successful because I have led a fulfilling life being just the opposite. I have also pretty much achieved everything I wanted to do in life. Oh yeah, I have a fit wife also. At least mine doesnt completely despise me either (least I dont think so)

Of course he became a reality TV star and said all the right things to push the buttons of his bonkers followers, so fame and being a far right populist promising to "make America Great again" was enough I guess but he is still a bit of a thicko lets face it and certainly not someone I would class as successful in many ways.


Ouch ... That hurt ya dint it ... I agree monetary success is not the success in life I aim for ... Just how you know your more successful than POTUS Trump in non-monetary values I would really like to know though as you know nothing, absolutely nothing him about him personally??? ... All those nasty things you say about POTUS Trump while claiming that your the exact opposite him is laughable ... You insult folk and spread lies, you call violence and thuggery "funny", you voted for, campaigned for and carried out much activism for a party full of proven racists etc etc and those are your good points ... As for your wife being "fit" thats great

Replacement truck drivers, waiters, British pint pullers are on their way ... https://twitter.com/geertwilderspvv/status/1418325308479053826 ... Praise the Lord


No, thats the recruitment drive for Dim Tim Wetherloons in Uddersfield.


Chuckle ... Dim Tims that Dim hes worth £450 million ... Boom


There are plenty of thick rich people.


Cool ... Given hes worth £450 million could you name "plenty" of those other "thick rich people" worth that kind of cash und just what makes em thick??? Is it just because they voted for Brexit??? ... Hate away


Some of these are pretty wealthy I would say with the exception these days of Johnson and Farage. Some supported Brexit, the others supported remain. I suspect I could find more if I could be arsed.



Yup ... As I thought ... Just another dig at "thick" Brexit voters and superior "clever Remainers" ... How very, very sad


Well as it turns out (so far at least) Brexit has turned out to be a crock of s**t. Maybe not as bad as it would have been if we had crashed out without a deal which of course some were frothing at the mouth for on here but bad enough. Its also led to the worst and most damaging government and leader in political history so if you still think its a good idea then surely you must either be in denial or thick as mince.

Its not a lie to claim Tim Martin is thick, its an opinion. Maybe he isnt thick and his thick as mince persona is all an act. Could be, look at who he is trying to appeal to. I asked you to prove where I said "All Wetherspoons customers were Brexiteers" and you have failed but as I said after all the years we have been posting stuff on here if thats the best attempt you can come up with to show that I am a liar then it clearly shows that I am not.

The rest of it is just guff

Still you carry on ... Princess I aint interested in your quoted link, its your original Hollywood claim I like

My pleasure Puffball.

Good to see you finally accept you were being ridiculous attempting to claim professional restaurateurs and CEO's were "obviously so wrong" about reasons for their staff shortages when it has been perfectly clear to all except you.

That's why they're professionals within their industries and not some part time odd job roofer in Yorkshire.



Well your fish restaurant owner you linked to currently has 25 staff working for him now serving beer and food so one of you is lying, is it you lying or him??? ... I know who my monies on

As usual more of your huff 'n bluff with you never providing a shred of evidence whereas I do. You haven't read my link but keep digging.....it's been entertaining watching you tie yourself up in knots making a fool out of yourself whilst continually bumping my thread back up the board.


I'll translate ... Its too difficult for you to admit you were lying so you revert to normal service with insults ... Surprised you didn't throw in "racist" and "xenophobe" as those as your usual run to insults ... Lying is not a good look

Instead of yet more guff and bluster how about you lay your cards on the table and prove that their restaurant is open and they have no staff shortages.

I stated in my post last week that some friends who had been mh'ing around Devon were bitterly disappointed to find the restaurant at their favourite posh chippy closed due to staff shortages. You dispute this by claiming either the restaurant owner is lying, or I am.

So lets have your proof now.

Have you banged your head or sumat ... That chippy is open for takeaway, takeaway food and beer ... You said all the waiters have left, thats ALL waiters and you said there was no-one pulling great British pints also, so I presume pints means beer doesnt it??? Now the owner of that establishment currently has 25 staff working there so either hes lying and all his staff have left or your lying ... Well we know your lying anyway dont we because there are still plenty of waiters and there are still plenty of folk serving beer ... Why dont you just admit you were wrong with your silly, hate filled original claim

I am not and never have been a member of that party so I dont care what Mr Starmer says. The only two parties I have been a member of is the Tories and more recently the LibDems where I am an honorary member. I didnt even ask to join.


1 Chuckle
2 Must be all that whisky that gives you special powers ... Couldn't you work for police in solving crime for em???
3 I posted two of your lies, you said name one ... Sorry for upsetting you again ... Your organ Grindr has taught you how to lie well
4 In your view I suppose they aren't thugs, freedom fighters and fellow brothers in the struggle prolly ... Look up the meaning of violence ... Look up the charges, you have nowt else to do
5 You "take very little interest in the anti-Semitism stuff" while strongly denying Jew hating in your party regardless of official reports that prove it ... Und I dont mean your Shami's sham report either that she received honours payment for from the leader of that anti-Semitic party ... Chuckle


Its not a lie to claim Tim Martin is thick, its an opinion. Maybe he isnt thick and his thick as mince persona is all an act. Could be, look at who he is trying to appeal to. I asked you to prove where I said "All Wetherspoons customers were Brexiteers" and you have failed but as I said after all the years we have been posting stuff on here if thats the best attempt you can come up with to show that I am a liar then it clearly shows that I am not.

The rest of it is just guff


Aaaah ... Now he isnt thick and he just acts thick ... Christ do you think before you post??? ... You said all his Wetherspoons customers voted for Brexit, its on this thread memory man ... Your a liar

Still you carry on ... Princess I aint interested in your quoted link, its your original Hollywood claim I like

My pleasure Puffball.

Good to see you finally accept you were being ridiculous attempting to claim professional restaurateurs and CEO's were "obviously so wrong" about reasons for their staff shortages when it has been perfectly clear to all except you.

That's why they're professionals within their industries and not some part time odd job roofer in Yorkshire.



Well your fish restaurant owner you linked to currently has 25 staff working for him now serving beer and food so one of you is lying, is it you lying or him??? ... I know who my monies on

As usual more of your huff 'n bluff with you never providing a shred of evidence whereas I do. You haven't read my link but keep digging.....it's been entertaining watching you tie yourself up in knots making a fool out of yourself whilst continually bumping my thread back up the board.


I'll translate ... Its too difficult for you to admit you were lying so you revert to normal service with insults ... Surprised you didn't throw in "racist" and "xenophobe" as those as your usual run to insults ... Lying is not a good look

Instead of yet more guff and bluster how about you lay your cards on the table and prove that their restaurant is open and they have no staff shortages.

I stated in my post last week that some friends who had been mh'ing around Devon were bitterly disappointed to find the restaurant at their favourite posh chippy closed due to staff shortages. You dispute this by claiming either the restaurant owner is lying, or I am.

So lets have your proof now.


Have you banged your head or sumat ... That chippy is open for takeaway, takeaway food and beer ...

It's you that needs to give your head a wobble.

I never said the takeaway.

My post stated very clearly that my friends were bitterly disappointed to find the restaurant closed due to staff shortages.

But the takeaway shouldn't be open should it if your original claim is to be believed??? ... According to your original claim there simply shouldn't be anyone serving beer and food, they've all gone??? ... Squirm away

You're getting desperate now frantically scraping the barrel. Takeaways have always been allowed to open. It's restaurants and pubs my posts and links, including Hanburys chippy, refer to regarding staff shortages.

Despite the overwhelming evidence from restaurateurs and CEO's nationwide of food chains about staff shortages, you've continually denied it's existence even to the point of arrogantly claiming they're "obviously so wrong", as though a roofer knows more about their industries than the professionals do!

How embarrassing ... Many thousands of pubs and restaurants offered take out service during the lockdown, who served the food and drinks because you claimed all the staff had gone??? ... You then add another lie to your original lie saying I have continually denied staff shortages, total lie, I have accepted there are staff shortages just like there are staff shortages in other countries hospitality industries, difference is I dont hatefully blame Brexit ... You lied about there being no waiters and pint pullers and now your lying about my supposed continual denial ... Your a liar Sir, shut up and stop squirming

Replacement truck drivers, waiters, British pint pullers are on their way ... https://twitter.com/geertwilderspvv/status/1418325308479053826 ... Praise the Lord


No, thats the recruitment drive for Dim Tim Wetherloons in Uddersfield.


Chuckle ... Dim Tims that Dim hes worth £450 million ... Boom


There are plenty of thick rich people.


Cool ... Given hes worth £450 million could you name "plenty" of those other "thick rich people" worth that kind of cash und just what makes em thick??? Is it just because they voted for Brexit??? ... Hate away


Some of these are pretty wealthy I would say with the exception these days of Johnson and Farage. Some supported Brexit, the others supported remain. I suspect I could find more if I could be arsed.



Yup ... As I thought ... Just another dig at "thick" Brexit voters and superior "clever Remainers" ... How very, very sad


Well as it turns out (so far at least) Brexit has turned out to be a crock of s**t. Maybe not as bad as it would have been if we had crashed out without a deal which of course some were frothing at the mouth for on here but bad enough. Its also led to the worst and most damaging government and leader in political history so if you still think its a good idea then surely you must either be in denial or thick as mince. If its the former, that really is "sad".


Eh ... I ask you to back up your claim and show other thick rich folk with the same wealth as "Dim Tim" and you show some guff about thick Brexit voters versus clever remainers ... Then you call me "thick as mince" for pointing out your pathetic Brexit dig ... Chuckle ... You and man of "humour" Hand Solo should start a double act ... You can be Eddie Large given your waist line and I presume its true what they say about Hand Solo so he has to be Sid Little


Your idol Trump was probably one of the stupidest dumb arse rich people. Theres a good example. Mind you I read that had he just stuck Daddies inheritance money in the bank he would have faired better financially. Dunno if thats true or not but he did go bankrupt (or his businesses did) four times or something but its generally accepted that he has been a wealthy man. Maybe richer than Dim Tim, He was all for Brexit wasnt he Trump?





"Dunno if thats true or not", well it aint ever bothered ya before chunky wether stuffs true or not ... As for Mr Trump, one might suggest to come from back from bankruptcy and become POTUS with a net worth of over 2 billion dollars he must be really thick like you say ... Chuckle ... You of course are way more successful ... Hes that thick he has a fit wife n'all ... Hate on princess


I would say I am more successful by a country mile. Success is not counted in just monetary values is it? All Trump has done is trample on people, abuse black people, assault women, divide his nation. spread hate and fear and generally be what I would call a "Very bad man". Now he is a very bitter bad man although it was clear for may years he has been full of hate and bile and obsessed with himself and his own narcissistic values. I would say I am more successful because I have led a fulfilling life being just the opposite. I have also pretty much achieved everything I wanted to do in life. Oh yeah, I have a fit wife also. At least mine doesnt completely despise me either (least I dont think so)

Of course he became a reality TV star and said all the right things to push the buttons of his bonkers followers, so fame and being a far right populist promising to "make America Great again" was enough I guess but he is still a bit of a thicko lets face it and certainly not someone I would class as successful in many ways.


Ouch ... That hurt ya dint it ... I agree monetary success is not the success in life I aim for ... Just how you know your more successful than POTUS Trump in non-monetary values I would really like to know though as you know nothing, absolutely nothing him about him personally??? ... All those nasty things you say about POTUS Trump while claiming that your the exact opposite him is laughable ... You insult folk and spread lies, you call violence and thuggery "funny", you voted for, campaigned for and carried out much activism for a party full of proven racists etc etc and those are your good points ... As for your wife being "fit" thats great


1. Eh? No!

2. I doubt there is a single figure in the world that has been so exposed to the media both as a President and as a cheap reality TV star, of course we all know a lot about him, his life and personality.

3. I dont spread lies

4. I dont call violence and thuggery funny either

5. Bulls**t.


1 Chuckle, yes it did
2 Chuckle, you didn't answer
3 Biggest chuckle
4 Chuckle, Colsons statue ... You found that "funny", some of those yobs caught received criminal records so you find those criminals and their vandalism and thuggery "funny"
5 Chuckle, check out the EHRC report into the party you voted for, campaigned for and was an activist for
You can always rely on you to give me a chuckle ... Hate on chunks


1. no it absolutely didnt. you think you spouting off about Sad little Mr Trump being more successful than me "hurt me". I was pissing myself laughing.

2. I did answer. Trumps life is pretty much an open book and now we can add "Loser" to his sado narcissistic nasty little existence.

3. I dont spread lies. name one, just one.

4. Yep. I found the toppling of the racist into the drink funny. It was a bit "Brass Eye" but that was it. i certainly have never condoned violence and thuggery but I Didnt consider that event either

5. Check out the same on the Tory party who have a long legacy of open racism, especially their moron of a leader. I dont agree with the court either. I think its nonsense in the main.


1 Chuckle
2 His life might be an open book but how you can judge how another feels wether there life has been a success or not god only knows ... Mind, you do have the knack of knowing who's a woman hater and sexual predator just by looking at em ... Chuckle
3 Lets go for an easy one ... Your lie all Wetherspoons customers are Brexit voters for starters and while were on about Wetherspoons your lie Mr Tim Martin is thick, given he has a bachelors degree, qualified as a barrister and started off with 1 pub and now has well over 900 and personal wealth of millions you claim hes thick ... Of course your bitter hatred of Mr Martin is down to one thing, hes a Brexit voter ... Yuk
4 Violence, thuggery, vandalism and a crime on public property that some of the thugs received a criminal record for you found funny ... Says a lot about ya
5 Its not surprising you dont agree with the EHRC findings ... How could you agree with them ... It would mean you'd have to admit to voting for, being an activist for and campaigner for racists ... Chuckle ... Thankfully Sure Queer Stammer doesnt want you deniers anywhere near his party


1. ?
2. Yeah I can just tell
3. When did I say all Wetherloons customers were Brexit voters? I bet most of them are though. Is that the only "lie" you can come up with? thought so
4. It was still funny but as I said I dont condone violence and thuggery and that wasnt violence or thuggery. Criminal damage maybe. What were the charges?
5. I take very little interest in the anti-Semitism stuff as I am sure 99% of it is just criticism of Israel not racism. I am not and never have been a member of that party so I dont care what Mr Starmer says. The only two parties I have been a member of is the Tories and more recently the LibDems where I am an honorary member. I didnt even ask to join.


1 Chuckle
2 Must be all that whisky that gives you special powers ... Couldn't you work for police in solving crime for em???
3 I posted two of your lies, you said name one ... Sorry for upsetting you again ... Your organ Grindr has taught you how to lie well
4 In your view I suppose they aren't thugs, freedom fighters and fellow brothers in the struggle prolly ... Look up the meaning of violence ... Look up the charges, you have nowt else to do
5 You "take very little interest in the anti-Semitism stuff" while strongly denying Jew hating in your party regardless of official reports that prove it ... Und I dont mean your Shami's sham report either that she received honours payment for from the leader of that anti-Semitic party ... Chuckle


Its not a lie to claim Tim Martin is thick, its an opinion. Maybe he isnt thick and his thick as mince persona is all an act. Could be, look at who he is trying to appeal to. I asked you to prove where I said "All Wetherspoons customers were Brexiteers" and you have failed but as I said after all the years we have been posting stuff on here if thats the best attempt you can come up with to show that I am a liar then it clearly shows that I am not.

The rest of it is just guff


Aaaah ... Now he isnt thick and he just acts thick ... Christ do you think before you post??? ... You said all his Wetherspoons customers voted for Brexit, its on this thread memory man ... Your a liar


I am pretty sure I never said everyone who goes to Wetherfools voted for Brexit so you will have to prove that I did say that. As for Dim Tim well you kindly pointed out to me that he has a law degree so clearly he cant be thick so you see unlike many I am prepared to admit that I might have perhaps been wrong but there must be a reason why he comes across as incredibly thick dont you think?

Ouch ... That hurt ya dint it ... I agree monetary success is not the success in life I aim for ... Just how you know your more successful than POTUS Trump in non-monetary values I would really like to know though as you know nothing, absolutely nothing him about him personally??? ... All those nasty things you say about POTUS Trump while claiming that your the exact opposite him is laughable ... You insult folk and spread lies, you call violence and thuggery "funny", you voted for, campaigned for and carried out much activism for a party full of proven racists etc etc and those are your good points ... As for your wife being "fit" thats great


1. Eh? No!

2. I doubt there is a single figure in the world that has been so exposed to the media both as a President and as a cheap reality TV star, of course we all know a lot about him, his life and personality.

3. I dont spread lies

4. I dont call violence and thuggery funny either

5. Bulls**t.


1 Chuckle, yes it did
2 Chuckle, you didn't answer
3 Biggest chuckle
4 Chuckle, Colsons statue ... You found that "funny", some of those yobs caught received criminal records so you find those criminals and their vandalism and thuggery "funny"
5 Chuckle, check out the EHRC report into the party you voted for, campaigned for and was an activist for
You can always rely on you to give me a chuckle ... Hate on chunks


1. no it absolutely didnt. you think you spouting off about Sad little Mr Trump being more successful than me "hurt me". I was pissing myself laughing.

2. I did answer. Trumps life is pretty much an open book and now we can add "Loser" to his sado narcissistic nasty little existence.

3. I dont spread lies. name one, just one.

4. Yep. I found the toppling of the racist into the drink funny. It was a bit "Brass Eye" but that was it. i certainly have never condoned violence and thuggery but I Didnt consider that event either

5. Check out the same on the Tory party who have a long legacy of open racism, especially their moron of a leader. I dont agree with the court either. I think its nonsense in the main.

2 His life might be an open book but how you can judge how another feels wether there life has been a success or not god only knows ... Mind, you do have the knack of knowing who's a woman hater and sexual predator just by looking at em ... Chuckle
3 Lets go for an easy one ... Your lie all Wetherspoons customers are Brexit voters for starters and while were on about Wetherspoons your lie Mr Tim Martin is thick, given he has a bachelors degree, qualified as a barrister and started off with 1 pub and now has well over 900 and personal wealth of millions you claim hes thick ... Of course your bitter hatred of Mr Martin is down to one thing, hes a Brexit voter ... Yuk
4 Violence, thuggery, vandalism and a crime on public property that some of the thugs received a criminal record for you found funny ... Says a lot about ya
5 Its not surprising you dont agree with the EHRC findings ... How could you agree with them ... It would mean you'd have to admit to voting for, being an activist for and campaigner for racists ... Chuckle ... Thankfully Sure Queer Stammer doesnt want you deniers anywhere near his party


1. ?
2. Yeah I can just tell
3. When did I say all Wetherloons customers were Brexit voters? I bet most of them are though. Is that the only "lie" you can come up with? thought so
4. It was still funny but as I said I dont condone violence and thuggery and that wasnt violence or thuggery. Criminal damage maybe. What were the charges?
5. I take very little interest in the anti-Semitism stuff as I am sure 99% of it is just criticism of Israel not racism. I am not and never have been a member of that party so I dont care what Mr Starmer says. The only two parties I have been a member of is the Tories and more recently the LibDems where I am an honorary member. I didnt even ask to join.

2 Must be all that whisky that gives you special powers ... Couldn't you work for police in solving crime for em???
3 I posted two of your lies, you said name one ... Sorry for upsetting you again ... Your organ Grindr has taught you how to lie well
4 In your view I suppose they aren't thugs, freedom fighters and fellow brothers in the struggle prolly ... Look up the meaning of violence ... Look up the charges, you have nowt else to do
5 You "take very little interest in the anti-Semitism stuff" while strongly denying Jew hating in your party regardless of official reports that prove it ... Und I dont mean your Shami's sham report either that she received honours payment for from the leader of that anti-Semitic party ... Chuckle


Its not a lie to claim Tim Martin is thick, its an opinion. Maybe he isnt thick and his thick as mince persona is all an act. Could be, look at who he is trying to appeal to. I asked you to prove where I said "All Wetherspoons customers were Brexiteers" and you have failed but as I said after all the years we have been posting stuff on here if thats the best attempt you can come up with to show that I am a liar then it clearly shows that I am not.

The rest of it is just guff


Aaaah ... Now he isnt thick and he just acts thick ... Christ do you think before you post??? ... You said all his Wetherspoons customers voted for Brexit, its on this thread memory man ... Your a liar


I am pretty sure I never said everyone who goes to Wetherfools voted for Brexit so you will have to prove that I did say that. As for Dim Tim well you kindly pointed out to me that he has a law degree so clearly he cant be thick so you see unlike many I am prepared to admit that I might have perhaps been wrong but there must be a reason why he comes across as incredibly thick dont you think?

Still you carry on ... Princess I aint interested in your quoted link, its your original Hollywood claim I like

My pleasure Puffball.

Good to see you finally accept you were being ridiculous attempting to claim professional restaurateurs and CEO's were "obviously so wrong" about reasons for their staff shortages when it has been perfectly clear to all except you.

That's why they're professionals within their industries and not some part time odd job roofer in Yorkshire.



Well your fish restaurant owner you linked to currently has 25 staff working for him now serving beer and food so one of you is lying, is it you lying or him??? ... I know who my monies on

As usual more of your huff 'n bluff with you never providing a shred of evidence whereas I do. You haven't read my link but keep digging.....it's been entertaining watching you tie yourself up in knots making a fool out of yourself whilst continually bumping my thread back up the board.


I'll translate ... Its too difficult for you to admit you were lying so you revert to normal service with insults ... Surprised you didn't throw in "racist" and "xenophobe" as those as your usual run to insults ... Lying is not a good look

Instead of yet more guff and bluster how about you lay your cards on the table and prove that their restaurant is open and they have no staff shortages.

I stated in my post last week that some friends who had been mh'ing around Devon were bitterly disappointed to find the restaurant at their favourite posh chippy closed due to staff shortages. You dispute this by claiming either the restaurant owner is lying, or I am.

So lets have your proof now.


Have you banged your head or sumat ... That chippy is open for takeaway, takeaway food and beer ...

It's you that needs to give your head a wobble.

I never said the takeaway.

My post stated very clearly that my friends were bitterly disappointed to find the restaurant closed due to staff shortages.


But the takeaway shouldn't be open should it if your original claim is to be believed??? ... According to your original claim there simply shouldn't be anyone serving beer and food, they've all gone??? ... Squirm away

You're getting desperate now frantically scraping the barrel. Takeaways have always been allowed to open. It's restaurants and pubs my posts and links, including Hanburys chippy, refer to regarding staff shortages.

Despite the overwhelming evidence from restaurateurs and CEO's nationwide of food chains about staff shortages, you've continually denied it's existence even to the point of arrogantly claiming they're "obviously so wrong", as though a roofer knows more about their industries than the professionals do!


How embarrassing ...

The embarrassment is you. You've incessantly trolled this thread over the past three months making a complete tit of yourself posting rubbish about you and your missus (got rid of your fake "husband" then ) had a great meal at some pub in the middle of somewhere with staff falling over themselves to serve.

Never any links......just pure 100% bs.


I have accepted there are staff shortages.

It's taken three months to drag that out of you. So you admit now didn't know what you were talking about when you said Paul Askew, chef-patron of the Art School restaurant in Liverpool, was "obviously so wrong"?

Replacement truck drivers, waiters, British pint pullers are on their way ... https://twitter.com/geertwilderspvv/status/1418325308479053826 ... Praise the Lord


No, thats the recruitment drive for Dim Tim Wetherloons in Uddersfield.


Chuckle ... Dim Tims that Dim hes worth £450 million ... Boom


There are plenty of thick rich people.


Cool ... Given hes worth £450 million could you name "plenty" of those other "thick rich people" worth that kind of cash und just what makes em thick??? Is it just because they voted for Brexit??? ... Hate away


Some of these are pretty wealthy I would say with the exception these days of Johnson and Farage. Some supported Brexit, the others supported remain. I suspect I could find more if I could be arsed.



Yup ... As I thought ... Just another dig at "thick" Brexit voters and superior "clever Remainers" ... How very, very sad


Well as it turns out (so far at least) Brexit has turned out to be a crock of s**t. Maybe not as bad as it would have been if we had crashed out without a deal which of course some were frothing at the mouth for on here but bad enough. Its also led to the worst and most damaging government and leader in political history so if you still think its a good idea then surely you must either be in denial or thick as mince. If its the former, that really is "sad".


Eh ... I ask you to back up your claim and show other thick rich folk with the same wealth as "Dim Tim" and you show some guff about thick Brexit voters versus clever remainers ... Then you call me "thick as mince" for pointing out your pathetic Brexit dig ... Chuckle ... You and man of "humour" Hand Solo should start a double act ... You can be Eddie Large given your waist line and I presume its true what they say about Hand Solo so he has to be Sid Little


Your idol Trump was probably one of the stupidest dumb arse rich people. Theres a good example. Mind you I read that had he just stuck Daddies inheritance money in the bank he would have faired better financially. Dunno if thats true or not but he did go bankrupt (or his businesses did) four times or something but its generally accepted that he has been a wealthy man. Maybe richer than Dim Tim, He was all for Brexit wasnt he Trump?





"Dunno if thats true or not", well it aint ever bothered ya before chunky wether stuffs true or not ... As for Mr Trump, one might suggest to come from back from bankruptcy and become POTUS with a net worth of over 2 billion dollars he must be really thick like you say ... Chuckle ... You of course are way more successful ... Hes that thick he has a fit wife n'all ... Hate on princess


I would say I am more successful by a country mile. Success is not counted in just monetary values is it? All Trump has done is trample on people, abuse black people, assault women, divide his nation. spread hate and fear and generally be what I would call a "Very bad man". Now he is a very bitter bad man although it was clear for may years he has been full of hate and bile and obsessed with himself and his own narcissistic values. I would say I am more successful because I have led a fulfilling life being just the opposite. I have also pretty much achieved everything I wanted to do in life. Oh yeah, I have a fit wife also. At least mine doesnt completely despise me either (least I dont think so)

Of course he became a reality TV star and said all the right things to push the buttons of his bonkers followers, so fame and being a far right populist promising to "make America Great again" was enough I guess but he is still a bit of a thicko lets face it and certainly not someone I would class as successful in many ways.

Can you prove I typed that though? You might have just made that up. It sounds like something I would say I will give you that but i think you inserted the bit in brackets so you will be hearing from my legal team.

2 Must be all that whisky that gives you special powers ... Couldn't you work for police in solving crime for em???
3 I posted two of your lies, you said name one ... Sorry for upsetting you again ... Your organ Grindr has taught you how to lie well
4 In your view I suppose they aren't thugs, freedom fighters and fellow brothers in the struggle prolly ... Look up the meaning of violence ... Look up the charges, you have nowt else to do
5 You "take very little interest in the anti-Semitism stuff" while strongly denying Jew hating in your party regardless of official reports that prove it ... Und I dont mean your Shami's sham report either that she received honours payment for from the leader of that anti-Semitic party ... Chuckle


Its not a lie to claim Tim Martin is thick, its an opinion. Maybe he isnt thick and his thick as mince persona is all an act. Could be, look at who he is trying to appeal to. I asked you to prove where I said "All Wetherspoons customers were Brexiteers" and you have failed but as I said after all the years we have been posting stuff on here if thats the best attempt you can come up with to show that I am a liar then it clearly shows that I am not.

The rest of it is just guff


Aaaah ... Now he isnt thick and he just acts thick ... Christ do you think before you post??? ... You said all his Wetherspoons customers voted for Brexit, its on this thread memory man ... Your a liar


I am pretty sure I never said everyone who goes to Wetherfools voted for Brexit so you will have to prove that I did say that. As for Dim Tim well you kindly pointed out to me that he has a law degree so clearly he cant be thick so you see unlike many I am prepared to admit that I might have perhaps been wrong but there must be a reason why he comes across as incredibly thick dont you think?


"Can you imagine his customers reaction(who all voted for Brexit) when they go for their warm piss beer breakfast"


Can you prove I typed that though? You might have just made that up. It sounds like something I would say I will give you that but i think you inserted the bit in brackets so you will be hearing from my legal team.

Still you carry on ... Princess I aint interested in your quoted link, its your original Hollywood claim I like

My pleasure Puffball.

Good to see you finally accept you were being ridiculous attempting to claim professional restaurateurs and CEO's were "obviously so wrong" about reasons for their staff shortages when it has been perfectly clear to all except you.

That's why they're professionals within their industries and not some part time odd job roofer in Yorkshire.



Well your fish restaurant owner you linked to currently has 25 staff working for him now serving beer and food so one of you is lying, is it you lying or him??? ... I know who my monies on

As usual more of your huff 'n bluff with you never providing a shred of evidence whereas I do. You haven't read my link but keep digging.....it's been entertaining watching you tie yourself up in knots making a fool out of yourself whilst continually bumping my thread back up the board.


I'll translate ... Its too difficult for you to admit you were lying so you revert to normal service with insults ... Surprised you didn't throw in "racist" and "xenophobe" as those as your usual run to insults ... Lying is not a good look

Instead of yet more guff and bluster how about you lay your cards on the table and prove that their restaurant is open and they have no staff shortages.

I stated in my post last week that some friends who had been mh'ing around Devon were bitterly disappointed to find the restaurant at their favourite posh chippy closed due to staff shortages. You dispute this by claiming either the restaurant owner is lying, or I am.

So lets have your proof now.


Have you banged your head or sumat ... That chippy is open for takeaway, takeaway food and beer ...

It's you that needs to give your head a wobble.

I never said the takeaway.

My post stated very clearly that my friends were bitterly disappointed to find the restaurant closed due to staff shortages.


But the takeaway shouldn't be open should it if your original claim is to be believed??? ... According to your original claim there simply shouldn't be anyone serving beer and food, they've all gone??? ... Squirm away

You're getting desperate now frantically scraping the barrel. Takeaways have always been allowed to open. It's restaurants and pubs my posts and links, including Hanburys chippy, refer to regarding staff shortages.

Despite the overwhelming evidence from restaurateurs and CEO's nationwide of food chains about staff shortages, you've continually denied it's existence even to the point of arrogantly claiming they're "obviously so wrong", as though a roofer knows more about their industries than the professionals do!


How embarrassing ...

The embarrassment is you. You've incessantly trolled this thread over the past three months making a complete tit of yourself posting rubbish about you and your missus (got rid of your fake "husband" then ) had a great meal at some pub in the middle of somewhere with staff falling over themselves to serve.

Never any links......just pure 100% bs.


I have accepted there are staff shortages.

It's taken three months to drag that out of you. So you admit now didn't know what you were talking about when you said Paul Askew, chef-patron of the Art School restaurant in Liverpool, was "obviously so wrong"?


I havent trolled anything ... I have challenged and shown your ridiculous original claim to be totally false and you really dont like that and I have offered to show proof of me being served food and drink remember, I asked for your mobile number so that I could send photos to you and you could put them up on here but you went all quiet ... Still though even now you carry on lying by saying its taken 3 months to drag out of me that I accept we have hospitality staff shortages, I have already agreed we have staff shortages previously in this thread but those staff shortages are not just down to Brexit as you would have us believe ... This is how simple it is, there are waiters and there are pint pullers, thousands of them still happily working away but you told us they'd all left "every one of them" and that is a 100% nailed on LIE but rather than admit it you go on and on and ...

Replacement truck drivers, waiters, British pint pullers are on their way ... https://twitter.com/geertwilderspvv/status/1418325308479053826 ... Praise the Lord


No, thats the recruitment drive for Dim Tim Wetherloons in Uddersfield.


Chuckle ... Dim Tims that Dim hes worth £450 million ... Boom


There are plenty of thick rich people.


Cool ... Given hes worth £450 million could you name "plenty" of those other "thick rich people" worth that kind of cash und just what makes em thick??? Is it just because they voted for Brexit??? ... Hate away


Some of these are pretty wealthy I would say with the exception these days of Johnson and Farage. Some supported Brexit, the others supported remain. I suspect I could find more if I could be arsed.



Yup ... As I thought ... Just another dig at "thick" Brexit voters and superior "clever Remainers" ... How very, very sad


Well as it turns out (so far at least) Brexit has turned out to be a crock of s**t. Maybe not as bad as it would have been if we had crashed out without a deal which of course some were frothing at the mouth for on here but bad enough. Its also led to the worst and most damaging government and leader in political history so if you still think its a good idea then surely you must either be in denial or thick as mince. If its the former, that really is "sad".


Eh ... I ask you to back up your claim and show other thick rich folk with the same wealth as "Dim Tim" and you show some guff about thick Brexit voters versus clever remainers ... Then you call me "thick as mince" for pointing out your pathetic Brexit dig ... Chuckle ... You and man of "humour" Hand Solo should start a double act ... You can be Eddie Large given your waist line and I presume its true what they say about Hand Solo so he has to be Sid Little


Your idol Trump was probably one of the stupidest dumb arse rich people. Theres a good example. Mind you I read that had he just stuck Daddies inheritance money in the bank he would have faired better financially. Dunno if thats true or not but he did go bankrupt (or his businesses did) four times or something but its generally accepted that he has been a wealthy man. Maybe richer than Dim Tim, He was all for Brexit wasnt he Trump?





"Dunno if thats true or not", well it aint ever bothered ya before chunky wether stuffs true or not ... As for Mr Trump, one might suggest to come from back from bankruptcy and become POTUS with a net worth of over 2 billion dollars he must be really thick like you say ... Chuckle ... You of course are way more successful ... Hes that thick he has a fit wife n'all ... Hate on princess


I would say I am more successful by a country mile. Success is not counted in just monetary values is it? All Trump has done is trample on people, abuse black people, assault women, divide his nation. spread hate and fear and generally be what I would call a "Very bad man". Now he is a very bitter bad man although it was clear for may years he has been full of hate and bile and obsessed with himself and his own narcissistic values. I would say I am more successful because I have led a fulfilling life being just the opposite. I have also pretty much achieved everything I wanted to do in life. Oh yeah, I have a fit wife also. At least mine doesnt completely despise me either (least I dont think so)

Of course he became a reality TV star and said all the right things to push the buttons of his bonkers followers, so fame and being a far right populist promising to "make America Great again" was enough I guess but he is still a bit of a thicko lets face it and certainly not someone I would class as successful in many ways.


Ouch ... That hurt ya dint it ... I agree monetary success is not the success in life I aim for ... Just how you know your more successful than POTUS Trump in non-monetary values I would really like to know though as you know nothing, absolutely nothing him about him personally??? ... All those nasty things you say about POTUS Trump while claiming that your the exact opposite him is laughable ... You insult folk and spread lies, you call violence and thuggery "funny", you voted for, campaigned for and carried out much activism for a party full of proven racists etc etc and those are your good points ... As for your wife being "fit" thats great


1. Eh? No!

2. I doubt there is a single figure in the world that has been so exposed to the media both as a President and as a cheap reality TV star, of course we all know a lot about him, his life and personality.

3. I dont spread lies

4. I dont call violence and thuggery funny either

5. Bulls**t.


1 Chuckle, yes it did
2 Chuckle, you didn't answer
3 Biggest chuckle
4 Chuckle, Colsons statue ... You found that "funny", some of those yobs caught received criminal records so you find those criminals and their vandalism and thuggery "funny"
5 Chuckle, check out the EHRC report into the party you voted for, campaigned for and was an activist for
You can always rely on you to give me a chuckle ... Hate on chunks


1. no it absolutely didnt. you think you spouting off about Sad little Mr Trump being more successful than me "hurt me". I was pissing myself laughing.

2. I did answer. Trumps life is pretty much an open book and now we can add "Loser" to his sado narcissistic nasty little existence.

3. I dont spread lies. name one, just one.

4. Yep. I found the toppling of the racist into the drink funny. It was a bit "Brass Eye" but that was it. i certainly have never condoned violence and thuggery but I Didnt consider that event either

5. Check out the same on the Tory party who have a long legacy of open racism, especially their moron of a leader. I dont agree with the court either. I think its nonsense in the main.


1 Chuckle
2 His life might be an open book but how you can judge how another feels wether there life has been a success or not god only knows ... Mind, you do have the knack of knowing who's a woman hater and sexual predator just by looking at em ... Chuckle
3 Lets go for an easy one ... Your lie all Wetherspoons customers are Brexit voters for starters and while were on about Wetherspoons your lie Mr Tim Martin is thick, given he has a bachelors degree, qualified as a barrister and started off with 1 pub and now has well over 900 and personal wealth of millions you claim hes thick ... Of course your bitter hatred of Mr Martin is down to one thing, hes a Brexit voter ... Yuk
4 Violence, thuggery, vandalism and a crime on public property that some of the thugs received a criminal record for you found funny ... Says a lot about ya
5 Its not surprising you dont agree with the EHRC findings ... How could you agree with them ... It would mean you'd have to admit to voting for, being an activist for and campaigner for racists ... Chuckle ... Thankfully Sure Queer Stammer doesnt want you deniers anywhere near his party


1. ?
2. Yeah I can just tell
3. When did I say all Wetherloons customers were Brexit voters? I bet most of them are though. Is that the only "lie" you can come up with? thought so
4. It was still funny but as I said I dont condone violence and thuggery and that wasnt violence or thuggery. Criminal damage maybe. What were the charges?
5. I take very little interest in the anti-Semitism stuff as I am sure 99% of it is just criticism of Israel not racism. I am not and never have been a member of that party so I dont care what Mr Starmer says. The only two parties I have been a member of is the Tories and more recently the LibDems where I am an honorary member. I didnt even ask to join.


1 Chuckle
2 Must be all that whisky that gives you special powers ... Couldn't you work for police in solving crime for em???
3 I posted two of your lies, you said name one ... Sorry for upsetting you again ... Your organ Grindr has taught you how to lie well

5 You "take very little interest in the anti-Semitism stuff" while strongly denying Jew hating in your party regardless of official reports that prove it ...

I found the post in question which was in response to another poster describing how despicably he treat his staff during the pandemic.

I wrote in response "LOL! Can you imagine his customers reaction (who all voted for Brexit) when they go for their warm piss beer breakfast and its doubled in price because Tims had to pay a decent wage to attract British workers?"

Clearly this is referring to all his customers who DID vote for Brexit, it does not infer that every one of his customers voted for Brexit just that the ones that did (which lets face it is most of them) would be very annoyed indeed if their piss beer Breakfasts doubled in price because he finally had to pay a decent wage to attract more British staff.

The embarrassment is you. You've incessantly trolled this thread over the past three months making a complete tit of yourself posting rubbish about you and your missus (got rid of your fake "husband" then ) had a great meal at some pub in the middle of somewhere with staff falling over themselves to serve.

Never any links......just pure 100% bs.


I have accepted there are staff shortages.

It's taken three months to drag that out of you. So you admit now didn't know what you were talking about when you said Paul Askew, chef-patron of the Art School restaurant in Liverpool, was "obviously so wrong"?


I havent trolled anything ... I have challenged and shown your ridiculous original claim to be totally false

Until you show me all restaurant and hospitality employees from the EU are still working here and never left the UK then you'd have a point......but you cannot show that as media reports have already shown the absolute opposite. Other posters besides myself linked numerous examples from professionals in the industry backing this up.

UK restaurant owners blame labour shortages as they cut services

Wages rise sharply as pandemic and Brexit leave venues without enough staff

Restaurant owners across the UK have cut lunch and dinner services and raised wages, citing a “calamitous” shortage of labour prompted by Brexit and the aftereffects of the pandemic.

Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux Jnr said on Wednesday that he had been forced to stop serving lunch and reduce the menu from 12 choices per course to a tasting menu and three other options at his Mayfair restaurant Le Gavroche.

Bibendum, another Michelin-starred London restaurant, said it would close on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays, while Hawksmoor, which runs eight restaurants in London, Manchester and Edinburgh, has limited opening hours to only the busiest times.

Others in the industry, including MWEat, which owns the Indian restaurant Veeraswamy in London and casual dining chain Masala Zone, and Gaucho restaurants have increased wages for certain positions by 10 to 15 per cent. D&D restaurants, which runs 38 sites in London, Manchester and Leeds, said it was asking staff to work extra hours.

“It’s disheartening and gut-wrenching but we just can’t carry on like this. It’s an acute shortage of staff, not just chefs but front of house as well,” Roux said, adding that a lack of experienced chefs — a side effect of Brexit — was “absolutely calamitous” for restaurateurs.


The pressure to recruit has increased in the past two months as hospitality businesses across the UK have rushed to find staff to meet unexpectedly high reopening demand and to fill gaps left by workers who have returned to their home countries owing to Brexit and the pandemic.

S4Labour, the hospitality technology provider, said revenues across the sector since the lifting of restrictions in May were up by a third compared with the same period in May 2019 and that 29 per cent of hospitality staff had left the workforce since February last year.

Indeed, a recruitment firm said the number of job adverts for food preparation roles had increased 608 per cent since the government announced its road map for easing lockdowns in February and were now 16 per cent higher than in February 2020, before the pandemic.

The shortages prompted Tim Martin, chair of the pub group JD Wetherspoon and a prominent Brexiter, to suggest on Tuesday that the government adopt “some sort of preferential visa system for EU workers, justified by ‘proximity’”, an idea echoed by many other operators across the industry.

UKHospitality, the trade body, last week called on ministers to introduce “an Australian-style visa scheme” to allow non-native workers who do not meet the UK’s post-Brexit points-based system to be employed.

However, the government flatly rejected such a suggestion on Wednesday.

“We want employers to focus on training and investing in our domestic workforce, especially those needing to find new employment as a result of the impact of the measures necessary to tackle Covid-19, rather than relying on labour from abroad,” the Home Office said. “[Pubs and restaurants] can’t always say the answer is to hire cheap foreign labour,” said one aide to Priti Patel, home secretary.

Patel, who campaigned for Brexit in 2016 alongside Martin, has set up an immigration system that favours skilled workers and does not offer preferential treatment to EU nationals.

The new rules, which came into effect from December 31 last year, with the end of the post-Brexit transition period, bar employers from hiring outside the UK for any role not needing the equivalent of A-level qualifications. They also bar employers from bringing in foreign workers for most positions paid less than £25,600 a year.


Martin Williams, chief executive of Gaucho-owner M Restaurants, said: “When someone like Le Gavroche, which is an institution, closes for lunches you have a serious problem?.?.?.?Unless the government changes its attitudes to visas there is going to be a big issue but the onus is also on the hospitality industry to be a good employer.”

And they started leaving not long after the referendum. Wake up to Project Reality......you were warned.


Brexit: Restaurants and hotels feel the pinch as EU workers leave the UK

Firms in the hospitality industry are struggling to fill vacancies as applications from EU citizens drop significantly since the vote for Brexit

Business is booming for Paul Murphy’s recruitment agency in northwest England. Clients are rolling in with more jobs in restaurants, bars and hotels than ever before, but finding workers to fill them has become tricky.

Britain’s vote to leave the EU has complicated life for Mr Murphy. A steady stream of continental Europeans who for years have taken up hundreds of thousands of positions in the hospitality business and other industries has started to dry up.

“It’s definitely getting worse. The lead time to fill a chef vacancy at the moment...could be anything between two and six months,” said Mr Murphy, whose Knight Benton Recruitment agency is based in the small town of Cleator Moor.

By contrast finding a chef last year would take two months at most, he told Reuters.

European workers are starting to leave Britain or having second thoughts about coming in the first place, worried about their uncertain status after Brexit.

Indian fine-dining restaurant group MW Eat says job applications from EU nationals are down around 80 per cent since the referendum.

Five years of Brexit: famous London restaurants unable to find staff for daytime trading

On Wednesday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson hailed the fifth anniversary of the Brexit referendum as an opportunity to create more jobs and revitalise Britain.

But David Moore, the founder of Pied a Terre in London, said that the hospitality industry was facing a recruitment crisis because of the large number of foreign citizens leaving the country.

Mr Moore said Brexit was "definitely the biggest" factor behind the staff shortage that has forced him to close at lunchtimes.

Mr Johnson, the face of the successful Vote Leave campaign, said the referendum in 2016 and subsequent divorce from the bloc had given Britain an opportunity to “seize the true potential of our regained sovereignty”.

“With control over our regulations and subsidies, and with freeports driving new investment, we will spur innovation, jobs and renewal across every part of our country,” he said.

“The decision to leave the EU may now be part of our history but our clear mission is to utilise the freedom it brings to shape a better future for our people.”

But Mr Johnson’s enthusiasm is not shared by the majority of the UK, new poll results indicate.

Well the pubs did open after lockdown, thousands of em and restaurants so could you please tell if your right and you aint lying and ALL EU workers went home and Brits wont work for low pay (whatever low pay is) and theres no-one to pull that great British pint just who the chuff is pulling that great British pint??? ...

Replacement truck drivers, waiters, British pint pullers are on their way ... https://twitter.com/geertwilderspvv/status/1418325308479053826 ... Praise the Lord


No, thats the recruitment drive for Dim Tim Wetherloons in Uddersfield.


Chuckle ... Dim Tims that Dim hes worth £450 million ... Boom


There are plenty of thick rich people.


Cool ... Given hes worth £450 million could you name "plenty" of those other "thick rich people" worth that kind of cash und just what makes em thick??? Is it just because they voted for Brexit??? ... Hate away


Some of these are pretty wealthy I would say with the exception these days of Johnson and Farage. Some supported Brexit, the others supported remain. I suspect I could find more if I could be arsed.



Yup ... As I thought ... Just another dig at "thick" Brexit voters and superior "clever Remainers" ... How very, very sad


Well as it turns out (so far at least) Brexit has turned out to be a crock of s**t. Maybe not as bad as it would have been if we had crashed out without a deal which of course some were frothing at the mouth for on here but bad enough. Its also led to the worst and most damaging government and leader in political history so if you still think its a good idea then surely you must either be in denial or thick as mince. If its the former, that really is "sad".


Eh ... I ask you to back up your claim and show other thick rich folk with the same wealth as "Dim Tim" and you show some guff about thick Brexit voters versus clever remainers ... Then you call me "thick as mince" for pointing out your pathetic Brexit dig ... Chuckle ... You and man of "humour" Hand Solo should start a double act ... You can be Eddie Large given your waist line and I presume its true what they say about Hand Solo so he has to be Sid Little


Your idol Trump was probably one of the stupidest dumb arse rich people. Theres a good example. Mind you I read that had he just stuck Daddies inheritance money in the bank he would have faired better financially. Dunno if thats true or not but he did go bankrupt (or his businesses did) four times or something but its generally accepted that he has been a wealthy man. Maybe richer than Dim Tim, He was all for Brexit wasnt he Trump?





"Dunno if thats true or not", well it aint ever bothered ya before chunky wether stuffs true or not ... As for Mr Trump, one might suggest to come from back from bankruptcy and become POTUS with a net worth of over 2 billion dollars he must be really thick like you say ... Chuckle ... You of course are way more successful ... Hes that thick he has a fit wife n'all ... Hate on princess


I would say I am more successful by a country mile. Success is not counted in just monetary values is it? All Trump has done is trample on people, abuse black people, assault women, divide his nation. spread hate and fear and generally be what I would call a "Very bad man". Now he is a very bitter bad man although it was clear for may years he has been full of hate and bile and obsessed with himself and his own narcissistic values. I would say I am more successful because I have led a fulfilling life being just the opposite. I have also pretty much achieved everything I wanted to do in life. Oh yeah, I have a fit wife also. At least mine doesnt completely despise me either (least I dont think so)

Of course he became a reality TV star and said all the right things to push the buttons of his bonkers followers, so fame and being a far right populist promising to "make America Great again" was enough I guess but he is still a bit of a thicko lets face it and certainly not someone I would class as successful in many ways.


Ouch ... That hurt ya dint it ... I agree monetary success is not the success in life I aim for ... Just how you know your more successful than POTUS Trump in non-monetary values I would really like to know though as you know nothing, absolutely nothing him about him personally??? ... All those nasty things you say about POTUS Trump while claiming that your the exact opposite him is laughable ... You insult folk and spread lies, you call violence and thuggery "funny", you voted for, campaigned for and carried out much activism for a party full of proven racists etc etc and those are your good points ... As for your wife being "fit" thats great


1. Eh? No!

2. I doubt there is a single figure in the world that has been so exposed to the media both as a President and as a cheap reality TV star, of course we all know a lot about him, his life and personality.

3. I dont spread lies

4. I dont call violence and thuggery funny either

5. Bulls**t.


1 Chuckle, yes it did
2 Chuckle, you didn't answer
3 Biggest chuckle
4 Chuckle, Colsons statue ... You found that "funny", some of those yobs caught received criminal records so you find those criminals and their vandalism and thuggery "funny"
5 Chuckle, check out the EHRC report into the party you voted for, campaigned for and was an activist for
You can always rely on you to give me a chuckle ... Hate on chunks


1. no it absolutely didnt. you think you spouting off about Sad little Mr Trump being more successful than me "hurt me". I was pissing myself laughing.

2. I did answer. Trumps life is pretty much an open book and now we can add "Loser" to his sado narcissistic nasty little existence.

3. I dont spread lies. name one, just one.

4. Yep. I found the toppling of the racist into the drink funny. It was a bit "Brass Eye" but that was it. i certainly have never condoned violence and thuggery but I Didnt consider that event either

5. Check out the same on the Tory party who have a long legacy of open racism, especially their moron of a leader. I dont agree with the court either. I think its nonsense in the main.


1 Chuckle
2 His life might be an open book but how you can judge how another feels wether there life has been a success or not god only knows ... Mind, you do have the knack of knowing who's a woman hater and sexual predator just by looking at em ... Chuckle
3 Lets go for an easy one ... Your lie all Wetherspoons customers are Brexit voters for starters and while were on about Wetherspoons your lie Mr Tim Martin is thick, given he has a bachelors degree, qualified as a barrister and started off with 1 pub and now has well over 900 and personal wealth of millions you claim hes thick ... Of course your bitter hatred of Mr Martin is down to one thing, hes a Brexit voter ... Yuk
4 Violence, thuggery, vandalism and a crime on public property that some of the thugs received a criminal record for you found funny ... Says a lot about ya
5 Its not surprising you dont agree with the EHRC findings ... How could you agree with them ... It would mean you'd have to admit to voting for, being an activist for and campaigner for racists ... Chuckle ... Thankfully Sure Queer Stammer doesnt want you deniers anywhere near his party


1. ?
2. Yeah I can just tell
3. When did I say all Wetherloons customers were Brexit voters? I bet most of them are though. Is that the only "lie" you can come up with? thought so
4. It was still funny but as I said I dont condone violence and thuggery and that wasnt violence or thuggery. Criminal damage maybe. What were the charges?
5. I take very little interest in the anti-Semitism stuff as I am sure 99% of it is just criticism of Israel not racism. I am not and never have been a member of that party so I dont care what Mr Starmer says. The only two parties I have been a member of is the Tories and more recently the LibDems where I am an honorary member. I didnt even ask to join.


1 Chuckle
2 Must be all that whisky that gives you special powers ... Couldn't you work for police in solving crime for em???
3 I posted two of your lies, you said name one ... Sorry for upsetting you again ... Your organ Grindr has taught you how to lie well
4 In your view I suppose they aren't thugs, freedom fighters and fellow brothers in the struggle prolly ... Look up the meaning of violence ... Look up the charges, you have nowt else to do
5 You "take very little interest in the anti-Semitism stuff" while strongly denying Jew hating in your party regardless of official reports that prove it ... Und I dont mean your Shami's sham report either that she received honours payment for from the leader of that anti-Semitic party ... Chuckle


Its not a lie to claim Tim Martin is thick, its an opinion. Maybe he isnt thick and his thick as mince persona is all an act. Could be, look at who he is trying to appeal to. I asked you to prove where I said "All Wetherspoons customers were Brexiteers" and you have failed but as I said after all the years we have been posting stuff on here if thats the best attempt you can come up with to show that I am a liar then it clearly shows that I am not.

The rest of it is just guff


Aaaah ... Now he isnt thick and he just acts thick ... Christ do you think before you post??? ... You said all his Wetherspoons customers voted for Brexit, its on this thread memory man ... Your a liar


I am pretty sure I never said everyone who goes to Wetherfools voted for Brexit so you will have to prove that I did say that. As for Dim Tim well you kindly pointed out to me that he has a law degree so clearly he cant be thick so you see unlike many I am prepared to admit that I might have perhaps been wrong but there must be a reason why he comes across as incredibly thick dont you think?


"Can you imagine his customers reaction(who all voted for Brexit) when they go for their warm piss beer breakfast"


Can you prove I typed that though? You might have just made that up. It sounds like something I would say I will give you that but i think you inserted the bit in brackets so you will be hearing from my legal team.


Now who's being thick??? ... Dont get as bad as your Grindr ... 1st page and your 4th post on here looks pretty much like defo you said it doesnt it??? ... is that an apology I hear to Mr Martin, to all his customers (many of them being Remain voters ) and an apology to me???


I found the post in question which was in response to another poster describing how despicably he treat his staff during the pandemic.

I wrote in response "LOL! Can you imagine his customers reaction (who all voted for Brexit) when they go for their warm piss beer breakfast and its doubled in price because Tims had to pay a decent wage to attract British workers?"

Clearly this is referring to all his customers who DID vote for Brexit, it does not infer that every one of his customers voted for Brexit just that the ones that did (which lets face it is most of them) would be very annoyed indeed if their piss beer Breakfasts doubled in price because he finally had to pay a decent wage to attract more British staff.


Jesus ... Did you actually think about that post before you let rip??? ... What a load of old tosh ... You know for a fella that claims to be more successful and I presume happier than multi-millionaire bizzness types and with a "fit wife" you dont half come across as bitter

If you are right then you should easily be able to show that. Myself and other fm's have shown you're wrong with the overwhelming evidence posted with some links showing EU employees were leaving the hospitality industries as far back as after the referendum.

Cool ... Your carrying on ... Those links you have provided, none of them, not any show that ALL EU hospitality staff have gone back to the EU like you claimed or have I missed that??? ... Und have I missed your answer to just who the chuff is currently serving all those great British pints in our pubs and restaurants because as you claim its no-one from the EU and no-one from Britain so just who the hell is it??? ... Chuckle ... Your tying yaself in knots ... I sense it wont be long before you start with calling me the usual "racist, xenophobe, blah blah blah"

You can be Eddie Large given your waist line and I presume its true what they say about Hand Solo so he has to be Sid Little


Your idol Trump was probably one of the stupidest dumb arse rich people. Theres a good example. Mind you I read that had he just stuck Daddies inheritance money in the bank he would have faired better financially. Dunno if thats true or not but he did go bankrupt (or his businesses did) four times or something but its generally accepted that he has been a wealthy man. Maybe richer than Dim Tim, He was all for Brexit wasnt he Trump?





"Dunno if thats true or not", well it aint ever bothered ya before chunky wether stuffs true or not ... As for Mr Trump, one might suggest to come from back from bankruptcy and become POTUS with a net worth of over 2 billion dollars he must be really thick like you say ... Chuckle ... You of course are way more successful ... Hes that thick he has a fit wife n'all ... Hate on princess


I would say I am more successful by a country mile. Success is not counted in just monetary values is it? All Trump has done is trample on people, abuse black people, assault women, divide his nation. spread hate and fear and generally be what I would call a "Very bad man". Now he is a very bitter bad man although it was clear for may years he has been full of hate and bile and obsessed with himself and his own narcissistic values. I would say I am more successful because I have led a fulfilling life being just the opposite. I have also pretty much achieved everything I wanted to do in life. Oh yeah, I have a fit wife also. At least mine doesnt completely despise me either (least I dont think so)

Of course he became a reality TV star and said all the right things to push the buttons of his bonkers followers, so fame and being a far right populist promising to "make America Great again" was enough I guess but he is still a bit of a thicko lets face it and certainly not someone I would class as successful in many ways.


Ouch ... That hurt ya dint it ... I agree monetary success is not the success in life I aim for ... Just how you know your more successful than POTUS Trump in non-monetary values I would really like to know though as you know nothing, absolutely nothing him about him personally??? ... All those nasty things you say about POTUS Trump while claiming that your the exact opposite him is laughable ... You insult folk and spread lies, you call violence and thuggery "funny", you voted for, campaigned for and carried out much activism for a party full of proven racists etc etc and those are your good points ... As for your wife being "fit" thats great


1. Eh? No!

2. I doubt there is a single figure in the world that has been so exposed to the media both as a President and as a cheap reality TV star, of course we all know a lot about him, his life and personality.

3. I dont spread lies

4. I dont call violence and thuggery funny either

5. Bulls**t.


1 Chuckle, yes it did
2 Chuckle, you didn't answer
3 Biggest chuckle
4 Chuckle, Colsons statue ... You found that "funny", some of those yobs caught received criminal records so you find those criminals and their vandalism and thuggery "funny"
5 Chuckle, check out the EHRC report into the party you voted for, campaigned for and was an activist for
You can always rely on you to give me a chuckle ... Hate on chunks


1. no it absolutely didnt. you think you spouting off about Sad little Mr Trump being more successful than me "hurt me". I was pissing myself laughing.

2. I did answer. Trumps life is pretty much an open book and now we can add "Loser" to his sado narcissistic nasty little existence.

3. I dont spread lies. name one, just one.

4. Yep. I found the toppling of the racist into the drink funny. It was a bit "Brass Eye" but that was it. i certainly have never condoned violence and thuggery but I Didnt consider that event either

5. Check out the same on the Tory party who have a long legacy of open racism, especially their moron of a leader. I dont agree with the court either. I think its nonsense in the main.


1 Chuckle
2 His life might be an open book but how you can judge how another feels wether there life has been a success or not god only knows ... Mind, you do have the knack of knowing who's a woman hater and sexual predator just by looking at em ... Chuckle
3 Lets go for an easy one ... Your lie all Wetherspoons customers are Brexit voters for starters and while were on about Wetherspoons your lie Mr Tim Martin is thick, given he has a bachelors degree, qualified as a barrister and started off with 1 pub and now has well over 900 and personal wealth of millions you claim hes thick ... Of course your bitter hatred of Mr Martin is down to one thing, hes a Brexit voter ... Yuk
4 Violence, thuggery, vandalism and a crime on public property that some of the thugs received a criminal record for you found funny ... Says a lot about ya
5 Its not surprising you dont agree with the EHRC findings ... How could you agree with them ... It would mean you'd have to admit to voting for, being an activist for and campaigner for racists ... Chuckle ... Thankfully Sure Queer Stammer doesnt want you deniers anywhere near his party


1. ?
2. Yeah I can just tell
3. When did I say all Wetherloons customers were Brexit voters? I bet most of them are though. Is that the only "lie" you can come up with? thought so
4. It was still funny but as I said I dont condone violence and thuggery and that wasnt violence or thuggery. Criminal damage maybe. What were the charges?
5. I take very little interest in the anti-Semitism stuff as I am sure 99% of it is just criticism of Israel not racism. I am not and never have been a member of that party so I dont care what Mr Starmer says. The only two parties I have been a member of is the Tories and more recently the LibDems where I am an honorary member. I didnt even ask to join.


1 Chuckle
2 Must be all that whisky that gives you special powers ... Couldn't you work for police in solving crime for em???
3 I posted two of your lies, you said name one ... Sorry for upsetting you again ... Your organ Grindr has taught you how to lie well
4 In your view I suppose they aren't thugs, freedom fighters and fellow brothers in the struggle prolly ... Look up the meaning of violence ... Look up the charges, you have nowt else to do
5 You "take very little interest in the anti-Semitism stuff" while strongly denying Jew hating in your party regardless of official reports that prove it ... Und I dont mean your Shami's sham report either that she received honours payment for from the leader of that anti-Semitic party ... Chuckle


Its not a lie to claim Tim Martin is thick, its an opinion. Maybe he isnt thick and his thick as mince persona is all an act. Could be, look at who he is trying to appeal to. I asked you to prove where I said "All Wetherspoons customers were Brexiteers" and you have failed but as I said after all the years we have been posting stuff on here if thats the best attempt you can come up with to show that I am a liar then it clearly shows that I am not.

The rest of it is just guff


Aaaah ... Now he isnt thick and he just acts thick ... Christ do you think before you post??? ... You said all his Wetherspoons customers voted for Brexit, its on this thread memory man ... Your a liar


I am pretty sure I never said everyone who goes to Wetherfools voted for Brexit so you will have to prove that I did say that. As for Dim Tim well you kindly pointed out to me that he has a law degree so clearly he cant be thick so you see unlike many I am prepared to admit that I might have perhaps been wrong but there must be a reason why he comes across as incredibly thick dont you think?


"Can you imagine his customers reaction(who all voted for Brexit) when they go for their warm piss beer breakfast"


Can you prove I typed that though? You might have just made that up. It sounds like something I would say I will give you that but i think you inserted the bit in brackets so you will be hearing from my legal team.


Now who's being thick??? ... Dont get as bad as your Grindr ... 1st page and your 4th post on here looks pretty much like defo you said it doesnt it??? ... is that an apology I hear to Mr Martin, to all his customers (many of them being Remain voters ) and an apology to me???


I found the post in question which was in response to another poster describing how despicably he treat his staff during the pandemic.

I wrote in response "LOL! Can you imagine his customers reaction (who all voted for Brexit) when they go for their warm piss beer breakfast and its doubled in price because Tims had to pay a decent wage to attract British workers?"

Clearly this is referring to all his customers who DID vote for Brexit, it does not infer that every one of his customers voted for Brexit just that the ones that did (which lets face it is most of them) would be very annoyed indeed if their piss beer Breakfasts doubled in price because he finally had to pay a decent wage to attract more British staff.


Jesus ... Did you actually think about that post before you let rip??? ... What a load of old tosh ... You know for a fella that claims to be more successful and I presume happier than multi-millionaire bizzness types and with a "fit wife" you dont half come across as bitter


Can you explain where you see bitterness in my highly amusing post please?

I claimed to be more successful that Trump not Multi Millionaire business types although to be fair some of them perhaps only measure their success by monetary and materialistic wealth.

Until you show me all restaurant and hospitality employees from the EU are still working here and never left the UK then you'd have a point......but you cannot show that as media reports have already shown the absolute opposite. Other posters besides myself linked numerous examples from professionals in the industry backing this up.


How can I show you that.

If you are right then you should easily be able to show that. Myself and other fm's have shown you're wrong with the overwhelming evidence posted with some links showing EU employees were leaving the hospitality industries as far back as after the referendum.

This is Project Reality you're waking up to now......it's what you voted for. Own it.


Cool ... Your carrying on ... Those links you have provided, none of them, not any show that ALL EU hospitality staff have gone back to the EU like you claimed or have I missed that?

Yes you missed it. I took the thread title. where have all the waiters gone?" from your Daily Wail no less (see link).

Now.......as I said before if you have links proving the absolute opposite, post them up.
