    This was discussed on Farming Today a while back. Farmers were anticipating the supply of pickers from the EU to dry up fairly soon anyway due to improvements back in their home countries. Brexit, and especially the fall in the £, has just accelerated this. They are counting on the Govt allowing them to hire temporary workers from other countries. Spanish farmers use (exploit) African workers.

    It's still better than France.

    Grand scheme of things when you're already $8 trillion in debt £100bn is small change.

    The BBC seems to spend a lot of time commenting on Paul Johnson's fantastic insights.

    Never seems to question him on his bulltulip.

    I picked bananas on a kibbutz, grapes in France when I was young as it was an adventure.
    I would not have picked fruit in the UK.
    Maybe a lot of EU workers come to the UK to pick fruit and other low paid jobs to practice their English.
    The English are quite prepared to go to australia and work on farms but wouldn't dream of picking fruit in the UK.

    Daily wail alternative headline:

    Given the earth is 4.543 billion years old, 50 year debt pile is a rounding error.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    You know - I think this may have something to do with the fact that they are 'travelling the world' and need jobs to fund that...

    If you only work in the UK you are probably not doing as much traveling as you would like - obviously if you get to a farm in Australia then you are travelling.

    So I think the people who do go work on farms in Australia are not the sort of the people who would actually see fruit picking in the UK as a career they would pursue.
