    One of the worst aspects of it is that I would love to do the job but I can't afford the training / licensing / tests and there are zero companies I can find locally that help with costs despite them crying out for workers and offering bonuses to already qualified drivers who sign up etc.

    dribbles once again provides the proof that undermines his own argument. But refuses to admit it.

    Him suggesting that I live in an alternate reality is projecting so hard you can see it on the side of the moon.

    I'm disappointed in your Dribbles, you already posted this story 2 days ago and we already refuted it back then.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    He only ever posts the exact same shit, anyway. Gotta grasp at what limited straws you can, after all.

    Easily ignored, though. Not even worth anyone picking his posts apart for the Nth time.

    Well when every reputable reporting outlet is saying the EU have climbed down, all I see here are people trying to drown this Brexit success out in a fog of misinformation by bleating about non existent empty supermarket shelves.

    Seriously I'll admit in Waitrose this morning I struggled to see any Belgian lager so woe is I, I suppose. But hardly a calamity caused by Brexit when any stock issues are down to the pingdemic and an NHS app that only remainers install when they want a few days off stacking shelves to shirk in the summer sun. You won't catch a hard working brexiteer with it on their phone I'll bet.

    The sooner that awful outdated and inefficient NHS is privatised the better, and Brexit in another clear benefit will expediate that.

You get to where you want to be in a controlled way.

    But Brexiteers didn't want that; they wanted to slam the door shut. They wanted to create a hostile environment for foreign workers. So suddenly they lost all those EU drivers and in an outcome that apparently none of them saw coming, they had a huge shortfall of drivers and no magic wand to wave to create them. We're now facing huge logistical problems from supermarket goods to local rubbish collections (councils that use agency drivers for their refuse trucks are proving to be almost impossible to source).


    Predictable outcomes to the Brexiteers activities. But none of them wanted to face this, or to manage the Brexit process in a way that would avoid this. Now they're reaping the rewards of their stupidity and the results are going to damage the UK economy even more for some time to come. It's what happens when you leave things to people that are too stupid to manage anything properly, and too egotistical to admit that they aren't perfect in everything they do. It's also what happens when you leave things to people that have been told all their lives that they have been raised to be in positions of power. Eton has a LOT to answer for.
    This is a winning post. Wanting to make change is understandable, but doing it in a way that does not break lots of other things along the way is not so simple. It turns out that Brexit is quite a disruptive way to achieve change.

    Given up trying to prove how wonderful Brexit is with facts, so you've fallen back on third rate bait to try and get people infracted? There is a word for that dribbles, but I won't use it because it will get me infracted. But you're blatantly doing it, and hopefully the mods will notice that.

    What you on about willis? It's been proven time and time again Brexiteers take a less cautious view of the pandemic than remainers, highly likely that applies to the app too.

    It's hide under the duvet remainers deliberately trying to sabotage the UK IMHO and deflect the cause as Brexit when in fact it is down to Covid. Disgraceful behaviour, but easily seen through by any sensible person.

    If you're trying to prove that Brexiteers don't care what damage their actions cause to those around them, then well done, you've succeeded. But somehow I don't think that's what you were going for.......

    Privatising the NHS would end up really bad.

    Everyone in logistics and supply chains are calling that one on Brexit. Stop deflecting.

    Ah yes, let's not be cautious about the pandemic that has caused MILLIONS OF DEATHS world wide.
    Hell, according to the data I could find, about 129 000 (One hundred and twenty nine THOUSAND) deaths.. https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/#countries in case you're curious

    It's hide under the duvet remainers deliberately trying to sabotage the UK IMHO and deflect the cause as Brexit when in fact it is down to Covid. Disgraceful behaviour, but easily seen through by any sensible person.
    So let's take this as fact (it's not, but let's pretend, it's fun). Brexit has caused 0 problems (We're pretending here, isn't it fun?) for your economy, it's all on Covid.
    Why are you acting proud and smug that brexiteers want to make it worse by not properly respecting the virus? If you / they truly cared about the economy, you'd want to get rid of the virus as fast as possible, which you would do by making sure it can't spread.. Such as by wearing masks when going outside, only going outside when needed, and not interacting with people if avoidable.

    Getting a second or third or fourth wave only makes the economy worse, because now you have government enforced lockdowns *AGAIN*

    Just in case anyone missed it, dribbles just acknowledged that what he describes as reality is what he thinks of as an alternate one to the one we live in.

    Oh noes, last week British sandwiches were found to be WMD's by the EU and banned, now we find they think the same of what was once thought a quite innocuous plant but now designated as very dangerous French Lavender.

    EU decision to ban lavender sparks Frexit call in France

    https://www.fr24news.com/a/2021/07/e...der-world.html

    Come on mes eurochum amis, you can do it, get out of the EU now! What will they ban next? Will they ever stop? How ridiculous.

    I love how a French paper is picking up a story a UK paper put out a day before. I'm pretty sure this is the kind of BS that ended up getting you leavers to vote for those improvements that you probably won't see until ~50 years from now.

    Surprised you're not shouting about the superiority of English Lavender.

    He's been pushing it since at least last year, because he knows how unpopular that would be, and that saying it gets reactions.
