    Maybe they had family here, and were hoping to settle? Dunno. But they were here, and now they're gone, and offering them a short-term contract for the privelege of coming back is not going to work....

    Yeah, the media played a big part in it. But the shortages were real, they just got overhyped. And Boris telling people not to panic buy was the final trigger.




    Why would they come here in...

    Wonder how many EU HGV drivers they're going to lure over here to work for 3 months and get kicked out on xmas eve? I'm guessing it's a number somewhere between zero and none.

    Can't wait to hear...

    I read you can use a standard outlet but they take a lot longer, like 10 hours to charge. Should be fine tho if you're charging overnight.

    The best part of this is the 33% of people who think the HGV driver shortage is the fault of the previous Labour gov't.

    Labour was last in power 11 years ago, in 2010. That is one hell of a...

    Extension cords exist. Unless you're parking more than 30 ft away from your house you can probably manage it.

    Not saying it wouldn't be a huge pain and I wouldn't run out to buy electric if that...

    Fun fact - most people have a source of electric fuel in their homes they can plug their car into overnight, what they don't have it is a petrol pump.

    Hybrids make sense if you're somewhere where electric charging points aren't common, but sovereignty is everywhere.

    Every petrol station near where I live out of fuel. Am seriously considering switching to a hybrid electric/sovereignty.

    This is how they attract workers.

    Actually, not sure if that's real of not, but this is:

    Not all businesses have that option of course. The uni I work at is finding it hard to recruit enough students to make up for the ones who won't come from the EU anymore because of the hassle, so...

    Yeah, I'm a socialist but that doesn't mean I think a HGV driver should make more than I do after I went to university for 8 years while living on a pittance, and they trained for a few months and...

    Exacerbate.

    Yeah it's not like you can hoard fuel. But, if there's a) a shortage of fuel; and b) everyone fuels up sooner than they normally would, then that's not going to be a good situation.
  16. Fuel shortage. Gov't tells people not to panic...

    Fuel shortage. Gov't tells people not to panic buy. Naturally, everyone immediately goes to fill up their cars.

    Meh, I think voting against that war right after 9/11 would have been seen as worse than wiping your ass with a burning American flag for a US politician. One person did iirc and she got called a...

    Yeah well, he's obviously senile. But I'd rather have the senile but otherwise mentally stable guy in charge than the senile guy who is unstable.

    That said, I don't think Biden will end up rated...

    I wonder how many of those lorry drivers who went back to the EU spoke English well enough to do their job; I'm guessing all of them or they wouldn't have been working here in the first place.

    Just out of curiosity, would you be opposed to relaxing immigration rules to allow EU drivers to return? 'Cause that would certainly help.

    That's funny. Did he really say that?

    I mean, Trump said things that incoherent every other day, so it is a high bar to meet.
