Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

View Post
There's lots of people from developing countries who would love to work in any Western European country, UK included. I'm sure hiring from India, etc. would be quite easy.
perhaps you have not noticed that we are in the middle of a pandemic. do you watch British News- the Hospitals are full, but space is not the main issue- the main problem is staff- cleaners, carers, and of courses, nurses and doctors- especially specialists. Some doctors and nurses from other specialities are being re-deployed to Corona emergency wards- but just do not have the necessary training and experience. There is a massive shortage right now- and this is due to so many EU having left recently, and even more, who have chosen not to come.

As for India- perhaps you have not noticed they are going through this pandemic in much worse conditions - so they have their hands full. As for poaching the staff they have trained at huge cost (and I know this has been going on before Covid of course) - there are massive ethical issues to be considered.

Would it not be great if people could discuss, debate the list of 'project fear/reality', instead of just going on personal attacks. Including comparing a poster to a young woman who was murdered for wanting to make a difference. SICK.
