We would not need to take people from their countries if we offered free training in this country.
It really annoys me when we have to do this. We never seem to think of the impact on those countries we recruit from. Same when we think we can take their nurses carers doctors fruit pickers.
There's an outcry going on now about removing the extra £1000 benefits to those who get them. Here's a novel idea. Allow people to keep this money if they train for one of the jobs we have a shortage in.
60 thousand nurses
10 thousand hgv drivers.
There's a million unemployed give them the incentive. Free training £15 an hour minimum wage.
Problem in this country is big business and government won't pay for training. They would rather take the cheap option of pinching other countries trained workers.sad really.

Well all 3 of our households vehicles needed fuel, my van daughter car and our car. Iím lucky I get up early to walk the dog, I went to our very local station as the main car had the 50 mile warning up. No wait at all just a normal amount of people but this was 6am I think it might get bad later on.

Dd filled up at Asda last week so she is fine but Iíve only got 89 miles left and Iím debating with petrol station to try. Apparently Tesco on the linkway was closed as they had run out. DH has a hybrid so as long as he can keep charging and doesnít need a long journey he will be fine.

Morons filling up here and blocking the roads yesterday. Bus services had to be diverted. Pity the poor people trying to use a bus to get to work or home.

All petrol stations within a decent drive were emptied yesterday.

Would bet that over half the people doing this didn't even need petrol and only put in a piddling amount.

I thought the same about people in my area yesterday who just wanted to go to the supermarket to shop ! Both ones I drove past had huge gridlocked queues to the car park entrance due to the location of the petrol station so you couldnít even shop . I was meant to be going this morning but wonít bother just hope this stupidness stops soon.

Dd was working in the petrol station in Sheffield yesterday and day before, sheís usually instore and doesnít do the petrol station that often so I felt so sorry for her. They had a delivery day before yesterday that lasts them 3 days, well they ran out yesterday at 6pm so 2 days earlier than usual. Total madness.

I canít imagine thereís now a queue of people wanting to come over to drive these trucks, cause what happens when the visa expires?

Also how long will it take? I saw one person who has been waiting for his asylum case for 19 years and is now being deported!

As a country, I love my country but crikey we need to get a grip , weíre being laughed at , I just donít know where it all started to go downhill to the point where someone says we will cancel Christmas because of a lack of turkeys, itís not like people in third world countries where the water hole dried up and they have to walk 12 miles to it and then carry it back
