Romanian pickers coming to help us out! Thank you Europeans! Although I am just about ancient I voted to stay and still think, despite some problems, it's the best place for us!

Approximately 4% of uk unemployed, why rely on eu workers.
Exceptional times, exceptional measures.

The National Farmers Union is having urgent talks with the DEFRA Secretary later today to discuss a nationwide scheme to recruit UK agricultural workers. We hear from an asparagus farmer who's struggling to find people to pick his crop, and from NFU Vice President, Tom Bradshaw.

It's not as if they weren't invited to take part! They were probably being a bit "picky" so the farmers organised flights for those who wanted the jobs. Good luck to them!

ps Isn't it a change to be talking about things Brexit Very Happy

Yes, isn't it fun talking about the struggles caused by a pandemic that is killing tens of thousands worldwide.

It certainly is and good luck to the growers in these times.  It is just a shame that maybe some locals did not fancy a few days outside  but the farmers knew where to turn in desperate times.   Fresh food for the Brits though.
