We have been doing this for some time, not just in haulage but in building and other trades.Of course we do. Let's drive them out when we're thousands of drivers short.
This is entirely our own fault for various reasons. We have thousands, possibly millions of unproductive people in this country, we need to find a way of getting them into work, but we won't, for 'reasons'.
We could let the market sort it out but that is contrary to government dogma so that is not going to happen, just continue as we are and fuck things up.
Right now that suits the pro EU/Globalist agenda that is the only policy of our government, so it will continue.
