    Default Another contract to the French

    So, not content with awarding the contract to print the new blue passports to the French, the monitoring of fishing vessels has also been awarded to a French company: French company wins licence to monitor British fishing boats | News | The Sunday Times

    Brexit seems to be turning into a win-win situation for EU companies so far....
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    France has an unemployment rate of 8.5%.

    It is only natural that a successful economy would outsource work to places where cheap labour is abundant.

    We're only following EU rules. Although it is a bit like asking the local poacher to look after your pheasants...

    We haven't left yet (again). We have to pay billions in since 2016 (yes even after rebates), and follow the rules. This means our money is taken and any business opportunity is given to French or German companies.

    Hope that explains why we are still even at this stage of "leaving the EU" paying billions to be screwed over...

    As the UK has only 3.8% of its eligible workforce unemployed and the French have more than double that maybe it was a sound business decision?

    France has youth unemployment at 20%.

    Maybe we could get some kind of kind of temporary youth visa where they come and cook our McDonalds for us.
