Brexit going forward
Not much of a price if you happen to be a Muslim or Jewish butcher though?
Well I’ve got four grown up siblings, all at work, none with the attitude to sit at home and do nothing.Its the EUs fault I tell you, they won't let us import all the foreigners we need to run our country properly. We are a sovereign nation and we demand they let us have all their skilled labour and that they should pay for them to all learn English as a first language at school so they can speak the one true language properly
We have done the maths and it works out cheaper to import skills and then tax them to pay for UK workers to sit at home doing nothing. The EU are just trying to attack us by preventing this
Should this not have been posted in snoutes in the trough.Name your price !
A shortage of butchers at industrial slaughterhouses has led to warnings that 10,000 pigs a week could have to be destroyed.news.sky.com

Maybe you’re relating to your own family and friends?
I am a lost life long Labour voter. There is no doubt that living on benefits is a life choice - for many. On the other hand, I knew a chap at the gym who had 2 jobs and still was eligible for benefit assistance. Something not right in our society.My eldest is a doctor and my youngest a teacher and I have the sum total of zero relatives (or friends) on benefits, so no
However, it's the nature of my work to deal with many people living on benefits. One is a single mum with an autistic kid who I have huge respect for, some of the others? not so much.
Being Kent-based and with so many farms begging for workers, it does make me wonder if being on benefits is a lifestyle choice for some people rather than being so unfortunate that they need the support of the state to protect them.
The government do the math all the time. If a major employer is closing the government weighs up the cost of putting people on benefits and the cost of bailing out the company, and it makes a fiscal decision. Sometimes it's worse and they decide based on voter support. As with any business, you look at the cost-benefit first.
Providing funds for training re-education and job implementation is very very expensive.
Looks like everyone will be saving a few quid then.....View attachment 24343
At last, a biblical kind of Christmas..
There will be no PlayStation 5 under where the Christmas tree used to be. There will be no jokes in Mrs Brown’s Boys, as usual, but none in the Christmas crackers either. There’s no petrol or HGV drivers, of course, but correspondents also report shortages of tennis balls, merlot, white bread, sardines, M&S chicken kievs, fish sauce, frozen apple strudel, tinned sardines, spring onions, fire alarms, an effective opposition, chocolate Hobnobs, cat vaccines, cat worming pills, bubble bath, Leon fish-finger wraps, marmalade, butter beans, dog-poo bags, goats, crisps, decaf coffee, bulbs (plant), bulbs (light), pigs, blankets, pigs-in-blankets, roofing lead and Harry Potter merchandise, especially wands...
There’s nothing to buy and no chance of going anywhere anyway. Thank goodness for Boris Johnson and his empty promiseswww.theguardian.com
On the other hand why spoil it with all that religious bollox, its about Morecambe and Wise, Zulu, Coronation Street specials, eating quality street on Christmas morning until you are sick, eating platefuls of food that would feed the starving in Africa and drinking copious amounts of shite you would never drink at any other time like Baileys, advofeckingcat etc. wearing ridiculous jumpers just because you can and will likely never wear again.I can survive without all the commercial crap at Christmas, so can others. Maybe we've had it too good for too long and we need a re-balance to reflect on what we still have?
