She's no longer a member of this forum.

But I'm not sure why you think she's relevant.

Replace 'country' with 'the EU'.

Then ask Dick and co.

I'm not sure her skills are needed anywhere.

Without that organisation, there'd be 28 different currencies to deal with, visas, work permits, customs checks and a lot more red tape for cross-border businesses.



Or baiting someone then complaining when they react.

But Leave won, and we're apparently planning on leaving without access to the single market and/or customs union, so exactly what are we waiting for?

Good post.

I for one have no interest in slagging off the EU as an organisation. I wish it no harm. I'm not sure the same sentiment is extended to Britain by some on here.

'Baiting someone then complaining when they react'. On TIO? Heaven forbid!

Leave won. We certainly agree on that. What happens next is as much to do with the EU as it is with Britain.

I don't think so, but he taught her maths at school :lol:

A better solution than importing low skill people at the taxpayers' expense.

Of course what do we need production and jobs in the UK for.
I will not ask where your head is, it pretty obvious.

So...to recap....as far as your head is concerned the only solution to production needs is to import low skill people and maintain low wages.

There is no way at all your head will accept that reduction of the supply of low skill people will force wages to increase?

There is really no hope for you.

It is good for the EU when jobs move away from the UK. In that way European unemployment problems will lessen. So please just let those Brexiteers be. Don't pop their bubble.

Quite agree.....let them grow and pick carrots in their homeland and sell them to us at a price cheaper than we can grow and pick them for.

Win / Win!

To all the piss-takers on here, I would have thought the solution was obvious. Train homegrown youngsters instead of importing more than we need, so forcing down wages. And if there are any vacancies over we can offer them to EU and non-EU workers on an equal playing field.

Just to add.....work needs to pay and it needs to pay better than welfare.

I'm all for supporting those who cannot work but those who can work but choose not to, benefit payment needs to be restricted timewise.

It's not good enough to expect poor people to cross national boundaries to pick carrots because some lazy bastard won't cross a county boundary to do the same job primarily because us taxpayers pay them to do nothing.

We must incentivise work, with stick and carrot.

Looks more like you will grow more carrots in future and deliver them to the EUfor low prices. Romania is busy growing its competitive IT businesses :kiss:
