Covid masked Brexit’s disruption of the UK economy — until now. Britain’s fuel crisis is the first where its effect is clear. And yet, in a country fed up of Brexit, few people are talking about it.

@MarkLandler Brexit probably plays a part of the driver shortage, however there also driver shortages across Europe. Also during the pandemic those who are eligible the stay in the uk went home to be with their families as they would have reduced earnings to send money home.

@MarkLandler @devisridhar David Smith - Times Economics Editor highly critical of lack of government awareness of predicted labour market disruption. Also transpires that IR tax changes in April required drivers to be employed directly and pay NI - discouraging self employed drivers!

@MarkLandler @devisridhar You can't get any sight of what's going on in the UK, in the UK media. You can only read truth about this in the press of Ireland, the USA, France etc.
