Don't really expect the 'lazy Brit' meme on Dosbods.
When I was 18 I was doing landscape gardening in brum for the well to do in Edgbaston. I say landscape gardening, but it was more back breaking rockery work or shifting dogshit. Good honest physical work in 12 hour shifts - all done by students desperate for money. I also delivered beds in Handsworth and picked fruit in Evesham. My sister was a chalet maid for a while.
Now these jobs are done by EE cash in hand while they claim in work benefits.
Our kids have been thrown to the wolves. Students drowning in 50k of debt doing useless degrees, never to be able to afford car insurance, let alone a place to live, while all the time being told they're idle bastards compared to practically every other nationality.
Give the poor fuckers a chance at least and we may just get something back. No wonder they're mostly socialist loons.
I don't think they would do that. It would start a trade war.
What occurs to me is that we import more than we export. Therefore, in reality, we could export absolutely nothing, and reduce our imports, and that would be great for us. Not so great for France and Germany.
I really don't understand why we export Welsh lamb and import New Zealand lamb. It is just mad.
