I'd definitely say that the Covid-19 pandemic has shown how the world needs each other and has to work together. Being insular has cost us lives & certain problems have been highlighted in our post-EU infrastructure.

This problem was unforseen of course but it's times like this where the importance of strength in togetherness become apparent.
Good post. Great to read a post that is upbeat and free from any of the 'blame' culture that some people seem to revel in!

Are Italy and Spain still in the EU?

Just been to our local supermarket, not a single empty shelf, I was gutted I may have to go to B&Q to get the shelves.
That was bristle's joke which started this thread.
There are still empty shelves at supermarkets all over the world.

bristle now asks "Are Italy and Spain still in the EU?"

Did anybody see Countryfile last night on TV?

Said we need 70,000 people to pick crops in this country now the Eastern Europeans can't get over (because of lack of skills/points on the new system).

So far we have the grand total of 114 put their names forward.

Farmers saying up to 80% of crops won't get picked & food prices will go through the roof.

Many foreign workers cannot come to the UK due to Covid-19 travel restrictions - or are reluctant to come for fear of that virus. Brexit not really a factor for this year while we are in the transition stage as we are at present.

You just did, or did you not watch last nights corona virus briefing in which he explained it in detail. Detail being something the left seem to forget when they’re having their little rants. You’d be at home on dot net at the moment, a vote to see who is/was the most awful person on the planet, forget serial killers, paedophiles, the final will be between Hitler and Katie Hopkins.
Surely even you're not that gullible to believe the staged, pre-scripted answers as gospel Bristle? It's frankly scary if you're that easily convinced.

So, I've received an email from an agent I'm dealing with about house buying in France.

It has been announced that after 31st December, to be able to move to France, you will need to speak French to A2 level, earn a minimum of 1500 euros a month & take out private health care. Before 31st December you don't need any of the above.

All because of Brexit.


Well done.

Wait, you're saying that to live in France you have to be able to speak French?

And this is your evidence that Brexit is a bad thing?
