    Even those UK citizens residing in the EU after Brexit are limited to work opportunities in the country they are registered unless they change their citizenship.

    Brexit, together with its scamming covid entry rules make it bottom of the list for EU tourists. Forced pcr test after 2 days at silly prices, yet most nothing more than cheap home testing kits. It's a disgrace!
    No he is not correct and its about time you stopped being the OhOh of Brexit and moved on. Your desperation is showing when you need Cyrille, a failure as a human being and the most disliked poster on TD.

    Guess you'll have a quote of it then, if it was 'self proclaimed'.

    If so it would solve your spelling problem, too.

    Everyone knows now, just how easily you are confused.

    Poor imagination, or no skills at all? Which could it be? I think you are due some new idiot mittens for your T shirt.

    I hear there is a shortage of lorry drivers in the UK, but it has nothing to do with Brexit, Ha! Ha! It seems the government is still in denial over the colossal mistake of leaving the EU.

    Nothing to do with Brexit and yet:

    Some 14,000 EU HGV drivers left employment in the UK in the 12 months to June 2020, and only 600 have returned in the past year, according to analysis of Office for National Statistics labour force data commissioned by Logistics UK.


    Kieran Smith, chief executive at specialist HGV driver recruitment firm Driver Require, also strongly disagreed that Brexit could be dismissed as a factor in the current driver shortage.

    He told i: “[Brexit] is part of it by definition.”


    Mr Smith said the shortage is “partially due to EU nationals leaving” the country, adding that a European exodus accounts for approximately one sixth of the lost workforce.
    He said the main effect of Brexit on the industry has been the impact to the flexible nature of the sector, as the UK heavily relies on EU nationals to plug the gaps when demand increases in busy periods, such as the summer and winter months.


    “At least 50 per cent of the flexibility is born by European nationals, enabling the increase and decrease of drivers as the industry demands,” Mr Smith said.

    HGV driver shortage: Haulage chief hits out at Grant Shapps''' '''illogical''' claim Brexit not to blame for crisis

    The denial:

    Transport secretary Grant Shapps has denied that Brexit is part of the problem behind the shortage of lorry drivers – arguing that Britain’s divorce from the EU had presented solutions to the crisis.

    Brexit ‘part of the solution’ to lorry driver shortage, claims minister | The Independent
    Silly sausage...


    Of course it's because of Brexit and that is why the current solution is:



    Lorry driver shortage: Temporary visa scheme to run until Christmas Eve


    A temporary visa scheme to make it easier for foreign lorry drivers to work in the UK is set to run for three months, ending on Christmas eve.
    It is understood about 5,000 visas may be issued, with more details about the scheme set to be announced on Sunday. A shortage of drivers has disrupted fuel deliveries, with some petrol stations closing, and queues forming. The government has said there is no fuel shortage at refineries, and urged people not to panic buy.

    The president of the AA said panic-buying rather than supply chain issues was driving the shortage of fuel at some petrol stations.Edmund King added that the problem should pass in a matter of days if drivers only fill up when they need it, adding "there is plenty of fuel at source".MPs and police forces have called on drivers to be "sensible", to consider filling up another time, and to avoid stockpiling fuel in jerry cans.

    Interesting, Brexit is a good thing because it makes the English more product and consumer-conscious. Interesting.

    I'm sure Farage had exactly that in mind . . .
