Explains in a nutshell, why Frosty the Noman, bailed out at the eleventh hour, of his own world beating deal.
Lizzie, is about to become the next casualty, in a long line of ministers, “awarded”, with the job of getting the damn thing done.

I don't believe there will be any issue, how could there be, there's been so much time to have everything sorted out.
From what I gather it's EU companies that are unprepared this time. As the UK for many of them is only a small part of their trade they haven't bothered sorting things out properly to continue. So I guess quite a lot just won't bother anymore.

This is the sad truth, trade is so small it isn't worth bothering .
And those that do avoid french ports like the plague
Eurotunnel must be bleeding millions , it's almost deserted

Looking and now experiencing all the customs checks only goes to highlight the protective nature that the EU has become. I’m not criticising this as we were part of that but how much time and money has been consumed protecting the EU market and at the end of the day who in Europe has really massively benefitted? Many UK industries have been lost to cheaper EU subsidised countries. Maybe we will learn a lesson and start building things here again as opposed to covering the country in warehouse’s!

If there's a gap in the market someone will fill it

Trade with the rest of the world was growing trade with the rest of the EU falling despite the extra paperwork, that should tell you the answers, protectionism doesnt work yet that's what the EU wants

My view on jobs is that it's a structural problem with the UK economy and lots of people have realised that work does not pay any more. All these min wage jobs they can't fill are a joke. Take someone who is divorced, has a house to run which needs to be big enough to host their children off and on and possibly be paying maintenance but in return receives zero help with those costs. It can't be done.

No point moaning about not be able to get staff. Pay them more. Give them fairer contracts so they are not hung out to dry in the next lockdown. Simples.

Who could argue with a living wage.

But employers need a living profit & that is not easy.

Since Brexit most of retail now seems to be foreign owned. With the expection of ASDA which has come back home.

Some small companies might be unprepared however the UK government system isn't ready! This leaves companies having to input info manually.
When asked to comment the minister in charge said WGAF! ( Ok he said it'll be fine) 🤭😂
Has to be read to be believed...
