SO LEMME GET THIS STRAIGHT …

By Pete Moore On November 8th, 2018

Shocking news to be sure. I expect Remainers to refuse their pay rises, in solidarity with middle class millennials, whose futures Brexiteers have destroyed.

But let’s figure this out. A labour shortage means higher wages, because firms have to bid up to attract labour, which is in short supply. So a glut of labour, excess labour, say when the government spends 20 years allowing millions of immigrants in, that must depress wages, yes?

Yes, I think I’ve got it. So the political and business establishments wanted, and still insist upon, free movement of labour and mass immigration, to keep our wages down – bingo.

Why would any working class person, or any self-described leftist, possibly be in favour of such a thing?

  1. Wages going up? That is unacceptable to the open-borders corporates (who want low wages – it’s something about ‘the economy’) and their leftist fellow-travellers who just don’t like white countries, white people and especially white workers

  2. Oh NO! I cannot accept this! So I have a skill which is in short supply and so prospective employersare going to be upping their offers of salaries? NO! This cannot be allowed! I knew Brexit was a bad thing. I want to bring home less and less money each year. After all, my wages belong to the state first, not to me and my family.

  3. For sure Pete.

    Maybe you can get back to me on Fanatics Never Stop? Here’s what you and I posted, in case you missed it:

    “Researchers” say it would “save lives”. Therefore it must be done. That we have agency, free will and can make up our own minds is irrelevant to fanatics. They will never stop insisting that every tiny aspect of your life be ruled by them.”

    I’m confused Pete. You support nanny-state drugs prohibition on the basis that it “saves lives”. So it’s only some stuff that should be banned / discouraged on health grounds? If so, who should decide what you may and may not consume? The government?

    The High street is simply dying because of the horrendous business rates, tax, council restrictions and fines for car parking, car park fees. its just far too much hassle for a lot of folk to bother even contemplating going to the high street to support the local businesses.

    Whats killing the high street and local business, is the mounting greed of central and local government.

    As for Brexit..

    Wonderful news.

    The latest global FDI figures have blown apart the regular Remainer refrain that Brexit “uncertainty” is causing anxious businesses to hold back investment in the UK. According to the most recent UNCTAD figures, far from languishing near the bottom of the table, the UK is currently ranked second best in the world, with $65.5 billion of FDI coming into the UK in the first half of 2018 alone, just behind China on $70.2 billion.

    The Netherlands lags behind the UK in fourth place with $44.8 billion, while Spain is the only other EU country to make the top ten in eighth with $29.8 billion. Not one of the other 25 EU member states has even managed to secure one third as much FDI as the UK…

    You then provide a link, this is from that link. There is no mention of Brexit?.

    What’s causing the problem?

    Retailers are facing a perfect storm of pressures as consumers rein in their spending and do more of their shopping online.

    As a result, many retailers have found themselves struggling to pay their rents and other overheads, such as a rising minimum wage and business rates.

    In last month’s Budget, Chancellor Philip Hammond promised to spend £900m on reducing the business rates bill of 500,000 small retailers by a third.

    He also promised a new tax for online firms that employ fewer staff and pay far lower business rates.

    However, the British Retail Consortium said the chancellor was “tinkering around the edges” and called for “wholesale reform” of the business rates system.

    Jake Berry, the minister responsible for high streets, said the government was determined to make them thrive.

    “We have created a £675m fund to help high streets adapt, slashed business rates … and are creating a task force guided by Sir John Timpson, one of the UK’s most experienced retailers, to ensure that high streets are adapting for rapid change and are fit for the future,” he said.

  7. good answer harri
    wonder how much of that incoming is dirty money ..lol

  8. I’m sure the Schaeffler workers in Llanelli are ecstatic that starting salaries are rising:

  9. good find paul
    common story, the big plants, manufactures pullin gout
    there are reasons for high street closures not necessarily connected with brexit
    and harri outlined a few, truth is its a lot easier to buy online these days

  10. More fool Schaeffer for using Brexit as an excuse.

    The UK’s GDP growth figures for Q3 reveal that growth has shot up to a near two year high of 0.6%. Which means that Brexit Britain grew three times as fast as the stagnating Eurozone in Q3, which posted paltry growth of only 0.2% last quarter. The Remainer refrain that Britain has slumped to the bottom of the growth league is starting to look very silly…

    Stop clutching at ever decreasing short straws.

    Try to do some research yourself instead of irrelevant personal sniping.

    haha there was a guy who was like that, here for a while
    can’t remember his name, began with H
    Harold? no
    Henry? no
    Hugo > no

    shit i can’t recall sorry, do you remember him Barri ?

  14. So, wages go up… Any other effect this may have on the economy or does wage inflation happen in a bubble?

  15. Jude.

    When it suited you, have you also linked to Guido Fawkes site?.

    Yep, you have.

    You are simply an old fraud.

  16. Harri,

    The High street is simply dying because of the horrendous business rates, tax, council restrictions and fines for car parking, car park fees. its just far too much hassle for a lot of folk to bother even contemplating going to the high street to support the local businesses.

    While there may be an element of truth in this, the main reason the high street is dying out is because more and more people are obtaining goods through online shopping as well as doing all their shopping at superstores.

  17. Talking about the pro’s and con’s of BREXIT in purely ecnomic terms is misleading. BREXIT was, and still is, a call from the people to be a sovereign independent nation not having to comply with ALL the laws eminating from Brussels irrespective whether they would apply to us or not.

    Business costs are just not all about labour. There are material, local and nationalgovernment, rental and service costs to factor in. If national government impose additional costs on employers, such as pensions, then this will have to be passed onto the consumer. If the consumef cannot afford this increase then they either reframe from their purchase or go elsewhere.

    The reduction in labour supply is a little more complicated. The Polish government has been working hard to get its people back, as there is a skills shortage back home.

    https://www.politico.eu/article/poland-hopes-brexit-will-lead-its-native-stars-home/

    And the Polish government can afford to do this as effectivly the major EU contributors, such as the UK, are subsidising their economy. They can afford lower taxes as money coming from the likes of the UK via the EU means they do not have to pay high business and personal taxes.

    Once we leave, properly it is hoped, the longterm future for the UK is very positive. That is provided the government does not screw things up, which they seem to be doing for the sake od big business.

  18. Guido Fawkes can hardly be described as an impartial source when it comes to Brexit and everything it says must be taken with a few dozen grains of salt until other sources can confirm its claims.

  19. yes paul, order order is a site for simpletons : click-bait
    angry white men etc, seen it all before, got the T-Shirt
