They're 80,000 drivers short in Germany too.

It's a job that's been overlooked in importance for a few years now. Long unsociable hours, time away from family and not great wages.

I've got a bad habit of not filling up until the car is practically running on fumes. The thing that tells me how many miles approx I have left was blinking at me this morning rather than giving a number, which I translate as 'your yellow warning light has been on since I told you there was only 50 miles worth of petrol left and that was days ago, so put some petrol in me you prick!'

I was on the school run and didn't have my wallet, so left it until I had to go pick the boy up this afternoon. Had to drive past the first 2 petrol stations near me as they were queuing out onto the road and I would have been blocking traffic had I joined the queue. Thankfully the car coasted down the hill to ASDA and I queued up there (though even there they were directing traffic depending on whether you were shopping or wanted petrol).

Madness.

If only people had said this sort of thing might happen.

Aye there is a shortage across Europe. Yet no other countries are having the same supply chain issues as the U.K. is.

Any idea why that might be?

Oh and the government is just about to announce another massive u turn and allow/invite drivers from the EU back here because frankly we’re going down the shitter fast.

Nowt to do with Brexit though. Germany are short on drivers as well see. Presumably they’ll start begging British drivers to come and save their sorry arses as well? Oh no, they don’t need to because they aren’t run by incompetent twats.

Glad we took back control though. Yay Brexit

They’ll blame anything before admitting where the real blame for the shambles that us U.K 2021 lies. And I do mean anything.

Aye those twats are too busy arguing amongst themselves. Such a it ever was.

Still, at least we didn’t let Corbyn take us back to the 70s. Turns out we didn’t need him to after all. Brexit did that just fine.

Or put another way, Priti Patel’s decision, supported by many Brexit supporters, to shut the door to low-skilled workers in new immigration laws seems to be exacerbating the problem.

“It is not EU policy that is to blame here. This is a domestic policy by the Home Office about who can and can’t come into the country,” said a spokesperson for the British Meat Processors Association (BMPA), which commissioned the Grant Thornton report.

The problem is that meat processing plants, retailers, care homes, hospitality and companies such as Amazon are all competing for a limited supply of low-skilled workers at entry-level salaries. So even if there were enough lorry drivers, the supply chain has come under severe strain from labour shortages.

......

Bloody f...ing great. Brexit politicians were claiming that foreigners were coming over here to steal our jobs, then saying that anyone who raised doubts was part of 'Project Fear'. Not that it's happening, people on Twitter are saying that it's "time to move on" and stop blaming Brexit for anything. Unbelievable. This sh*t was caused by Brexit, and it's not by accident, this was how it was supposed to be.
