Back over in England again for a few days and noticed the empty shelves - is it Brexit related?

We have our big shops delivered and noticed that more and more items aren’t available so I have been going to the local co-op more for bits and pieces. What I’ve noticed there is that although they don’t noticeably have empty shelves there is definitely less choice and the shelves have been filled with what they can get. So for instance baked beans might have been allocated 1 shelf that’s 1 mtr long in a 5 shelf high unit now all 5 shelves are baked beans because they couldn’t get whatever the other 4 shelves would have normally had on them.

Went Sunday, fair amount of empty space, especially the veg, had to have brocoli instead of brocoli stems with my salmon fillet.

They never put that on the side of fucking bus!

Apparently the government is removing the reversing part of the HGV test to speed up the training of new HGV drivers. From experience I know that reversing an articulated vehicle is an art in itself and rarely comes naturally to most people. What the fuck is the government thinking off?

That would be crazy!

Funnily enough I'm literally just watching the last episode of Clarkson's farm where he's struggling to reverse a trailer 😂

Be fucking hilarious if someone recently qualified under the new criteria reversed over the entire cabinet!

I would imagine so. Reversing a trailer isn't easy.

God forbid they make a wrong turn or come to a low bridge and have to turn around in a tight gateway on a small road.

What next? DBS checks cancelled for people entering the care industry to cure the staff shortage. If you’ve ever owned an animal and didn’t kill it you’re now a qualified vet to cure the the vet shortage ahead of October.

Leaving the EU per se isn't the problem. The route the government has taken to do it is. We could be an non EU member with access to the single market and customs union but both sides took childishly polarised positions and we got the worst of everything.
You sound like you're some kind of expert.

We (the 37% of the electorate who voted 'leave' in the referendum) have had enough of experts.

Away with you and your rational thinking.

Yours,
M. Gove.

Claims that it wasn’t about immigration were nonsense. Long term Britain will be outside of the EU yet end up with similar levels of immigration.

Cornwall was 57% leave.
Cornwall has a very strange demographic, despite appearances it's very impoverished and a lot of the towns are similar to ex industrial towns in the north that also went leave. Couple that with a large retiree population then I'm surprised it wasn't more leave.

They are in some cases ex industrial towns themselves, tin rather than coal miners.

Proper scraping the barrel for a brexit win with this one
We’re running out of beer to put in the glass but…
Such a big issue that reading the article was the first time I realised it had changed in the first place!

True and obvious.....but it wont stop the morons parroting shit like "they know what they voted for".....which in itself is deeply ironic for those that voted to remain within a expansionist neo-liberal project in which they have next to no say in matters....
