Hundreds of healthy pigs are being slaughtered on farms due to a shortage of abattoir staff

Rocketing energy costs are being met with inaction and yet another levy, while the industry pleads for help and prepares to shut down. We have empty shelves due to a lack of HGV drivers, in substantial part due to Brexit non-returnees. Shortages of abattoir workers (linked to Brexit – again) has led to the culling of healthy pigs on farms.

The nation is in deep crisis and effective measures are needed, but all we get is a posturing buffoon (who clearly hasn’t a clue about how to deal with real problems) at the head of an incompetent administration whose only consistent policy is “too little, too late”. The government pretends there isn’t a problem, tries to blame someone else – and then panics!

Isn’t it time this utterly useless administration stepped aside and made way for a government in favour of national recovery, comprising all the parties and working together in the national interest – and not just that of the Conservative Party and its cronies?
