    European Union - In Or Out?

    I have recently returned from Portugal and there were no problems with shortages in the supermarkets on the Algarve. In fact I asked the question to several people about the shortage of drivers there and they don't have any problems. They had a lack of drivers in 2018 and 2019 and I think there was a strike by HGV drivers in 2019 but numbers have increased apparently since then.

    As many as possible as long as they have Class 1 HGV licences!

    My business before it collapsed was an import/export company specialising in distribution of cut flowers and fruit trading for nearly 40 years. Before Brexit we could import from Holland, France, Italy etc and also export from UK growers to all over Europe totally frictionless and as easy as supplying the florist just down the road! So I have no idea where you get the notion that the movement of goods prior to Brexit 'being seriously jeopardised' as that was not my experience, in fact if anything with the advent of technology and improved on-line banking it has been even easier over the last 10 years.

    Not misleading if you read all of the article: Michael Poole (left) and Jim Brennan have been able to continue their Honda apprenticeships at another Swindon firm, Recycling Technologies

    Did they really. From memory it was something like 180+ remain to 130+ leave and I was working with an MP at the time on this very subject leading up to the referendum and afterwards. I have the actual statistics somewhere. Added to that our u-turn specialist PM said in Feb 2016 and I quote "Leaving would cause business uncertainty, while embroiling the Government for years in a fiddly process of negotiating new arrangements, so diverting energy from the real problems that have nothing to do with Europe". None so blind eh?

    Industries from haulage to hospitality are facing a 'perfect storm' of issues creating staff shortages as the economy reopens, the president of the CBI is warning. Lord Bilimoria said that the departure of overseas workers during the pandemic who have not returned, was among the main factors causing headaches for employers. He also said there was a need to update the 'shortage occupation list' which makes it easier to hire skilled workers from overseas where roles are hard to fill from the UK workforce.

    I have noticed that my cut flower and plant import business has ceased trading with the loss of 45 jobs. A business that has been trading for over 35 years very successfully supplying florists nationally.

    But surely he was also instrumental in how the Government operated?

    Glad you find it is all a big joke. I am now winding up my flower import business that has been trading successfully for 34 years. It has been a real struggle to keep the business going over the last 4 years but it has gone up another level now not being able to get produce, customers screaming at me and not to mention the VAT issues. I kept the business operating in the vain hope that HMG would negotiate a deal that would help importers such as my company employing 30+ staff and would at the very least support the businesses financially with the extra burden of paperwork and VAT issues that all importers seem to be experiencing. We still have not received the 'doubled up' VAT duty that we had to pay back in January to get HM Customs to release the produce that our customers had ordered and were waiting for. My bank has been very supportive but the company cannot keep loading up debt that it will struggle to pay back in the longer term and at my time of life I just don't need the extra worry. It is my loyal staff that I really feel for as I know it will very difficult to get another job locally for similar pay.
