Interesting new HGV plan

Apparently it's reported in the Independent today that the Dept. of Transport has written to all German nationals living in the U.K. asking if they would like to consider driving an HGV - even if they have never done so before.

 

Interesting idea.

What could possibly go wrong!! *-)

 

It shows the sheer desperation and mess this third [world] country has got itself into.

 

A 41-year-old German investment banker who received two copies of the letter at his London home on Friday morning, one addressed to him and another for his wife, told The Independent, “We were quite surprised.” “I’m sure pay and conditions for HGV drivers have improved, but ultimately I have decided to carry on in my role at an investment bank. My wife has never driven anything larger than a Volvo, so she is also intending to decline the exciting opportunity.

 

“It is nice to know there are specialist jobs available here for us though after Brexit. We would never have been headhunted to drive a lorry if we’d gone back to Germany.” (lol)(lol)(lol)(lol)

 

The Treasury have a sense of humour too......denying the shortage is related to Brexit. (lol)(lol)(lol)(lol)

 

The German government haven't sent out mail shots to British living and working in Germany begging them to come and drive an HGV.
