Romanian Fruit Pickers?
In all it's wisdom, the UK Government has organised an army of Romanian fruit pickers to travel to the UK, in order to fill the gaps in the farming industry.
At a time like this, when the nation is in literal crisis, we shouldn't be importing workers from abroad, we should be focussing on getting British citizens in to these roles.
As far as I'm concerned, people who've hit hard times, due to the lock down, should be offered special access to such opportunities. After that, people who are long term unemployed, should be forced to farms as work experience.
Importing a work force is madness, are we testing all these people at the border?
What happens if a substantial chunk of them get ill or they flout the lock down rules and run a mockery?
The UK Border, should be closed to all non essential entries and exits!
People arriving here, should be subject to a 14 day quarantine. The only way we'll conquer this virus, is if we stop being airy fairy, and actually get down to business, old school methods please!
