Brexit WTF, WTF

I don't expect him to win.
I've got to laugh, Rishi the man who totally threw 4.2M self employed under his bus wheels during Covid, the man who wears £ 400.00 Loafers onto a building site, the man who will change his tune depending on what the PR men say more than even David Cameron, you get my drift, no chance and why he has bothered to prolong the leadership campaign being so far behind constantly, you got to be totally obsessed with your own view in the mirror.

You do like supporting losers.

Both are pathetically unqualified, unsuited and out of touch.
It's a poison chalice now anyway, anyone competent would run a mile.

If you really support Truss, then she's just a lesser degree of loser.

It is kind of ironic that Conservatives spent almost a decade blaming 'the mess left by the previous Labour government' rather than a global recession, and now they're falling foul of the same thing.

Sure, I said Sunak "as lesser of two evils". Truss is just fresh meat for the parliamentary party to rip to pieces in the months to come. Never before has a PM been installed with so little backing from their own MPs. It won't end well.

Sadly I've got to agree, where's Farage and his new new new next party, that would wake up the woke brigade enough to vote for Starmer who in all honesty is worse than both Rishi and Truss. Now that would put our political leaders in full context Starmer, Truss / Rishi , leader of the Lib Dems who is so obscure, who is he and Farage :)

But LeoV we have higher immigration into the country than ever, you need to quantify that.
That is included in the dumbass move, as it was predicted. But not what most Brexiteers had envisioned. Including you, many posts of your hand praising the robots to take over low wage jobs. You only replaced EU worker with thoose from the old empire. That was not what Brexit was about, though you will claim otherwise.

It was never predicted by you or anyone else that a Covid Pandemic would totally upend the labour markets. Sure we are importing more workers that we need in a controlled way, whats wrong with that, thats just basic supply and demand. But now we as a democracy can pick and choose, previously it was the employers who simply tapped the low wage labour pool, leaving the tax payer to pick up the bill for the Schools and Hospitals needed for those workers and their families.

Heres an interesting article on the present difficulties and the record lows of unemployment across the whole of the EU despite a recession and energy crisis.


The policy brief report, The end of free movement and the low-wage labour force in the UK, conducted by ReWAGE and the Migration Observatory at Oxford University, found that while Brexit exacerbated the labour market problems in the UK, it was “by no means the only reason for the shortages”.

It said that while employers have faced recruiting difficulties and high vacancy rates across various occupations, “the pandemic, international sector-specific labour shortages, and an increase in early retirement” had been more important factors than Brexit.


As to my views that we need to reduce the urge of Employers to go first to the minimum wage labour pool and only then mechanise if they cannot operate without that abundance of cheap labour, then surely now is the moment when those Employers have to mechanise to survive. That will take time however to sink into the bean counters heads as energy costs rise and recessions loom across the entire world.
 
I thought with brexit you could cull the boat people?
Change the law like OZ so if you arrive by boat you can never become a Brit
Ship them to the Falkland islands for processing
etc
Rwanda ring a bell with you. Nah too many Barristers and Lawyers who are all incidentally claiming penury at the moment. Seems the "save the boat people" are better funded than the criminal defence teams. Must be down to Brexit of course.


Have you seen the size of the Ribs being used, apparently purpose built and imported to Germany from China, talk about filling a market need .

Starmer is dull, and not very inspiring.
But worse than Rish and Truss? Nah I don't think so.
He might be boring, but he is at least principled and for the most part honest, even if you don't agree with those principles, the way that Truss and Rishi talk about the last government, you'd never think they were a part of it.

Starmer is a relatively safe pair of hands, full, but at least dependable.

Of the 3 reasons next to Brexit, 2 were very well known for decades and part why Brexit was a dumbass move at the wrong time. So there you go. Embrace it and enjoy it.

BTW, I did speed read the original rapport, and it does not say what peoples management writer wrote. Go to original source, not a derivative. https://migrationobservatory.ox.ac....ffecting-the-low-wage-labour-force-in-the-uk/

In summary, there is some evidence that the end of free movement has contributed to shortages in the UK labour market, although it is by no means the only driver of recruiting difficulties. SNIP. Evidence on the impacts of the end of free movement is still incomplete and new data will emerge in the coming months and years.

Nowhere in the whole report it has been said that other factors were more important then Brexit as stated by that magazine.

From that same article.

Evidence on the impacts of the end of free movement is still incomplete and new data will emerge in the coming months and years. The evidence available so far suggests that immigration policy is one of multiple factors contributing to labour shortages. First, high vacancies and low unemployment have been a feature of post-pandemic labour markets, including in several other countries that have not changed their immigration policies. Second, recruitment difficulties in some low-wage industries have resulted in part from longer-term problems with unattractive pay or working conditions. Third, the end of free movement appears to have exacerbated these existing problems employers have faced.

And that is the crux of Brezit, it does not solve anything but made every problem relying on EU relations a bit harder.
So there it is. Just as predicted. Enjoy it. Not what was promised. Britannia Rules the World, a slogan not used any more. Swashbuckling has gone.

You should try and burn the Celotex of today, almost totally inflammable, in 2017 you could put it on your bonfire and watch it ignite with the mearest hint of a bit of flame. Also note for almost 3 months after Grenfell magically there was a Celotex shortage in the UK, apparently one of plants producing it had production problems, very coincidental of course ;)

No one ever used the phrase Britanina Rules the World. Certainly no one today does. What we can say is that UK influence today far outweighs our tiny population. In the short period since Brexit we’ve shown how a dynamic independent country can embarrass a large bureaucratic machine when it comes to vaccine procurement and roll out and with regard to foreign policy UK has dominated the European responce to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The collective “might” of the EU/Germany/France etc has shown to wholly disjoint and ineffective
 
Off course they can move more swiftly. Duh. That's the way the system is created in the UK, with its 2 party disaster.

To make a long story short: UK and EU are in a hard place right now. It's better to cooperate than to blame each other for political reasons.

Let's see if Truss will take this route or that we will see bickering about N-I for populist reasons. Off course, the French are not any better.
