Okay LK, regardless of articles in the Guardian, the whole point being made here is about lorry driver shortages and supply chain problems due to Brexit. Almost all sources, including food industry bodies, apart from the more right wing papers who were vehemently Leave, are identifying Brexit as having caused this, along with the impact of Covid. This is the government is being asked to allow more EU citizens back in to address the problem:
It’s great that you are seeing an increase in fuel sales but one, how can you know the majority are now working when they haven’t before (appreciate you may recognise some but you’ve not done a survey have you?)? and two, don’t you think the increase is more likely to be attributable to more people coming in and out of Brighton, particularly from London,due to more UK holidaymakers and workers needed to service them?
I don’t think anyone would be surprised that you are witnessing an increase in fuel sales but Brighton’s hardly representative of the UK as a whole and it doesn’t in anyway explain the £2bn food industry drop that was the whole point of the recent posts. No one’s saying that Covid hasn’t impacted on this but there is a wider acknowledgement from business leaders that Brexit has had a huge bearing. You just appear to be staring out your kiosk window calculating 2+2=5.
