The impact of Brexit continues to unravel.

As a country we do not have enough people skilled, willing or otherwise to take on those jobs that were dominated by European tax paying migrants, in fields such as meat processing, fruit picking, transport and a whole range of other areas. The idea that unemployed Brits would step in and take over is a fallacy that we will now all pay for through our pockets as inflation will rocket, and we will see shortages on the shelves and in service area which will clearly outrage the average Brit's sense of entitlement. It won't matter soon though, as we are about to enter a deep recession and people won't have money and jobs will disappear as quickly as the 'free trade deals' we were promised.

What I find most ironic is that we are now willing 'to allow' short term work permits for people to (come) back for a limited time only. Why would they want to up sticks for a limited time to come to a country that through the ballot box showed the rest of the world clearly what it thought of 'outsiders'.

Little Britain.

Anyone in my generation (post-boomer...do we have a nickname...?) depending on the state pension is a fool (or very unlucky.) That will only get worse as fewer younger people feed in at the bottom. The state pension is untenable but it would be political suicide to suggest phasing it out entirely.

The army have been called in to drive ambulances in Scotland - how long before they're driving tankers, etc? Fascinating phone-in on Radio 5 on Friday morning...the had a whole bunch of truckers, driving instructors, haulage firm owners, etc. They were unanimous about sh1t pay and even sh1tter working conditions for drivers in the UK (£25-40 to park up overnight at a motorway services with no guarantee of being able to get a coffee, let alone a shower or meal; female driver facilities almost non-existent; completely inefficient warehouses delaying loading and uploading; etc.) The hauliers then said that the rates they are paid per load has not been increased by the supermarkets for years - but those same supermarkets are offering £40-50k salaries for delivery drivers to work from stores, with the drivers getting home to their families every night and infinitely better working conditions. Leaving driving artics for that is a no-brainer. They all fairly and squarely blamed the supermarkets for pretty much everything - but Brexit was only blamed by the companies as it's led to massive delays and price rises. They were all unanimous in saying that granting visas for European drivers was a bad idea - mostly because their training standards were rubbish and half of them cannot reverse a truck.

In terms of solutions, they agreed the biggest blocker right now is the backlog at testing stations. Driver training companies reckon they could put through twice as many drivers per week if there were more testing slots available.

My brother has been a lorry driver for over 30 years, all across Europe, North Africa and a 6 year stint in Canada/US - so a lot of the discussion wasn't news to me, but I maybe didn't appreciate how bad conditions are.

That’s one company, there are many others in the grand scheme of fuel deliveries. The stupidness currently happening is down to scaremongering by media.

Indeed. Your response to Shandy was taking the position that there were no underlying issues and the Government was blameless. So I had to jump in to correct.

But then the haulage association needs to group together and tell the supermarkets to stick it. They have too much power over suppliers and this will only ever change if they do. Same as with the farmers.

And then if supermarkets have to put up prices consumers kick up a fuss. Perhaps the route cause is the time old problem that British consumers want something for nothing…we want free delivery, we want milk and meat at a price below what it can be produced for, we want to cut in-work benefits but then complain if the cost of living is too high, but don’t want employers like supermarkets to pay higher wages because we want cheap food, and so on.

The EU have a shortage of HGV drivers of around 400,000 and this will only get worse next year. I believe Germany alone has a shortage of around 80,000 so it simply cannot be attributed solely to Brexit.

However the UK does not have a shortage of ADR drivers which is the real point regarding fuel deliveries.

But the fuel problems are public made. If it had been a tanker driver issue the problem of fuel deliveries would have been getting worse over a longer period of time, this has happened almost overnight because the general public are thick and panic at the slightest thing.

“In a joint statement from companies including Shell, ExxonMobil and Greenergy, the industry reiterated that pressures on supply were being caused by "temporary spikes in customer demand - not a national shortage of fuel".”

PRA chairman Brian Madderson told the BBC the shortages were down to "panic buying, pure and simple", with oil companies prioritising keeping motorway service station pumps topped up.

Just caught sight of the front page of todays Sun. Hardly doing anything to help the issue. Instead of "THERE IS NO FUEL SHORTAGE, ONLY BUY WHEN YOU NEED", it's "FUEL SHORTAGE. PUNCH UPS AT THE PUMPS" and other such unhelpful balls.

We filled up this evening (as normal, when in the red zone, not panicking) and the guy in front of me paid around £15 for his fuel.

It made me think whether rather than some places capping how much you can buy, there should instead be a minimum. Say a minimum spend of £40, then all those people just topping up to be safe will be prevented from buying until they actually need to.
