Re: Britain outside the EU

I think it will be when, not if, unfortunately.

Prepare for a ‘no deal’, chaps!

Sadly no to either.

The island of Ireland would still be in the European single market and exports from GB would need to be meet Single Market rules eg processed meats must be frozen unless veterinary equivalence has been agreed.

What would sort out a lot of the current issues will understandably never happen - that the Republic of Ireland leaves the EU and joins the UK single market.

I was hoping it would be the other way round, both piss off back to the EU and let them sort it out while we laugh

Brussels expected to turn down the heat in Brexit sausage skirmish

The EU is preparing to agree to a three-month extension when Britain can send processed meat to Northern Ireland in an attempt to avoid a “sausage trade war”.

No surprise that they agreed to an extension. Britain needs to take advantage of this extension to sort out veterinary equivalence. The electorate in Chesham and Amersham were wise enough to see through BoJo's patriotic bluster in place of sensible negotiation.

A potential compromise is thought to centre on marking all products “for sale only in the United Kingdom” although this would have to be agreed by the EU.
Well done to all the overpaid bureaucrats that have decided to steal my idea from a week ago

Looks like that Australian meant may come in handy.

Meat sector warns of Brexit production squeeze

The UK faces shortages of British-produced meat as problems with recruitment continue, the industry has warned.

Brexit and coronavirus have meant many EU workers have returned to their own countries, putting a squeeze on production.

The poultry industry is reporting a 10% fall in the number of birds being slaughtered for meat in recent weeks.

But vegans said the labour shortage could "spark much-needed change".

About a billion birds are slaughtered, prepared and packed in the UK per year, with the industry heavily reliant on EU nationals, especially for lower-skilled jobs.

But migrants have been returning to their home countries due to Brexit effects including a weaker pound, a trend exacerbated by the coronavirus crisis, the British Poultry Council (BPC) said.

Once they get home, many decide not to return.

How much cheaper do you need a chicken to be?

Re: Britain outside the EU

Fantastic news about the shortage of 'lower-skilled jobs' in the meat/poultry industry.

This means there are work places and opportunities available for all the British dole scrounging druggies that are 'really really looking for work guv, but there isn't any 'cos all the foreigners are doing em, innit'

Time for the Govt. to get these people working . . or no more benefits

A very simplistic way of looking at it....

Consider the following.

Most processing plants operate in out of town areas.

Most 'dole scrounging druggies' live in centralised urban environments.

Most 'dole scrounging druggies' don't have cars & therefore rely on public transport.

Public transport doesn't run services either
1) At the time that people need to start their shifts
or
2) Near enough to processing sites for people to get to.

The processing plants in and around my local area don't offer a company owned bus service.

Whilst I'm all for people who are able to work actually working, let's set about the issue with a degree of realism as to what can be achieved rather than spaffing sun-esque gibberish.
