Britain’s unravelling at a pace never seen before.
It’s the 7th of September 2021, it’s not quite two hundred and fifty days since Brexit officially happened and yet the following has occurred:
· Empty shelves at supermarkets throughout the country
· Farmers having to cull 100,000 pigs as a result of severe shortage of butchers
· 7.5 billion annual costs to businesses
· Chronic shortage of staff for care homes
Empty shelves at supermarkets throughout the country
There is the tendency to dismiss articles like mine as one borne out of hysteria. I have however, attached to the write up the speech given by the first minister of Scotland on what Brexit has done so far to its economy.
Ms. Sturgeon spoke about the dire situation of empty shelves across a number of retail establishments in Scotland.
Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland didn’t vote for Brexit and yet they are forced to live with the unfortunate consequences of English nationalism and the parochialism and corruption of a London based elite.
As I type a number of supermarkets are removing aisles from the shop floor as opposed to hiding or denying the shortages.
Farmers having to cull 100,000 pigs as a result of severe shortage of butchers
As a result of the stringent immigration rules brought on by Brexit, there’s currently a severe shortage of butchers to work on British farms. This problem has led to the difficult decision being made by farmers to slaughter 100,000 pigs.
This line of action by British farmers is in contradistinction to the misinformation that the animal welfare bodies were fed by the vote leave group in the run up to the referendum, five years ago.
