Food supplies down in some areas due to the Tory B****t disaster.

'Remoaners' warned them but they did not listen. It was all fake news and scaremongering. It will take at least 18 months to train new drivers, if they can get them.

Meanwhile the home office is still trying to deport EU citizens here legally.

The driver shortage has nothing to do with Brexit, i believe a part of tax law changed, anyone who had a home that resided outside the UK didnt have to pay tax, i believe the law changed and they now have too.

Also this has been ongoing for 20 years or more, its about pay and conditions as always.

Also there is no new blood coming into the industry, young people want a work life balance and the logistics industry doesnt offer that, its also been sh*t money, you get treated like sh*t by managers and customers  etc, look at the situation with Lidl, if drivers were turning up 5 mins late they were being turned away or told to wait for hours on end, now Lidl have changed their tune as various associations kicked off about it, this is the norm in the industry.

Couple this with during the pandemic, local councils closed all the toilets and facilities, sh*tting in plastic bags is not fun and not very hygenic, just being out for 12 hours a day is bad enough without facilities, some of these drivers are tramping all over Europe and getting treated like second rate citizens while keeping the stores stocked up,

A year ago they were keyworkers, now they are back to being scum.

I think you hit the nail on the head there, far too easy to try and blame this all on Brexit when there is a lot more going on in the world.

Not if you compare the UK's performance with the EU countries. They have no delivery issues, no shortages at all, business booming on average.

Then we had covid last year too, so why the delay? If the issue was covid it should have happened last year. It's all Tory propaganda and lies.

The law changed because of Brexit, meaning we cannot bring EU drivers into the UK and ours get stuck in Kent trying to deliver to EU countries.

UK people living in the EU don't pay UK tax, EU ones living in Britain definitely do, and always have. You are just making up excuses.
