Businesses want special arrangements to allow work visas to EU drivers. I doubt very much that the Tories have the stomach for it even it not doing it means food shortages.

It's the most retarded political decision made during my life time so far, probably ever, with a bunch of incompetent wankers trying to execute the idea. It won't ever be anything other than a huge mess.

So a month later, they are finally extending immigration for drivers. The obvious, too late. They are an absolute disgrace. They should have done it before petrol stations were closing and shelves were empty. It's not going to be an instant fix. We all have to pay for their pig headed stupidity and that of those who voted for them and Brexit.

I will be running against the tide here. I voted to leave. I was hugely in favour to start with. Mind changed over the years.
I always expected to be worse off to start with. I think you might find that labour shortages are also present in the EU. There are shortages of HGV drivers across many countries of the EU. Transport Intelligence say there are 400,000 fewer HGV drivers than are needed across Europe.
As soon as media say there maybe a shortage of anything, from bog rolls to petrol, it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. Early last week, no queues at petrol stations near me, plenty of fuel. Later in the week and a couple of stories later, panic.
Of course like much of life, we see everything through our own perspective.

The housing market is plummeting in the the SE and the southern bastards are looking to invade the north with their superior business acumen.

Fair points, but it does mostly seem like we've shot ourselves in the foot.  I'm yet to see one benefit from all this mess.  The Greeks voted to leave didn't they and their Government decided it was a terrible idea and didn't see it through.  Was there for a month in Sept and everything seems to be working, unlike here at the moment.   ::)

Thought you voted Brexit lad?  Must be my terrible memory kicking in again.  My uncle voted Brexit to get out from under the EU 'bureaucracy' and recently told me he wants to retire in Crete. Doesnt' make any sense  :D :-\ ::)
