Isn’t this a tragic result of Brexit?

Wawrzyniak came to the UK 15 years ago before rising to prominence on the BBC showing Mary Berry how to make his signature “babka” cake but these days he has more than recipes on his mind: specifically the challenge of finding trained staff for his House of Feasts and another restaurant that he plans to open in London next year.

“We are struggling at the moment to find staff because of Brexit – there is no doubt,” said Wawrzyniak, who recently switched entirely to hiring trainees and teaming up with Peterborough Regional College to run an apprenticeship scheme.

Britain’s youth are to be trained up instead of ignored in favour of imports of trained people.

  1. i’ve been to southern poland – nice people but thought the cuisine was nothing to write home about – except the scarcity of green vegetables in the diet. Quite why we needed to import waiters and waitresses always seemed odd. as to the article – the guardian can only see the bad in brexit so no change there. latest article about corbyn describing boris as shaming uk is a disgrace – corbyn being a traitor – but then the guardian hates the uk.

  2. Same logic applies to our terrible shortage of doctors, nurses, etc. It’s a wonder we manage to have any teachers, given that we can’t easily import them from Poland.

  3. More Remainiac bullshit.

    And yes moqifen that was my thought as well.

    “House of Feasts” =Cabbage and Potatoes R’us..

  4. I have pleasant experiences with the Eastern Europeans working in London. Almost without exception.

    But here is the choice. We can be a high wage developed country. Or we can let the plutocratic elites – most of them Guardian readers – import as many Third World coolies as they like to depress the wages of most British people. And rape their daughters by way of added insult.

    It is interesting to see which side the Guardian has chosen.

  5. “Quite why we needed to import waiters and waitresses always sceemed odd.”

    Not odd at all. Many British school leavers are lazy, unmotivated, and have poor time-keeping, few social skills, and unrealistic job expectations. Left/liberal indoctrination in school has left them feeling entitled and disgruntled (not to mention impolite and undisciplined), and also often very unwilling to be seen as anyone’s servant.

  6. Britain’s youth are to be trained up instead of ignored… one of the Leavers central Brexit arguments. Should have been our focus when Blair and Brown were in power, instead of sending ‘search parties’ around the world.

  7. Wot Britain’s yoof needs is International Service. Send ’em to Bongbongoland to be added to the stewpot. That’ll larn ’em.

  8. dearieme – “Wot Britain’s yoof needs is International Service. Send ’em to Bongbongoland to be added to the stewpot. That’ll larn ’em.”

    I would be happy for all benefits paid to anyone on the dole for more than six months to be paid in Guyana or Jamaica or Bangladesh.

    The recipients would find their money would go a lot further and it would boost the local economy. And if we worked it right, they would stay there and their children never come back.

  9. The article jrefers to Brexit as if its happened already but probably its the lower pound putting off new ones coming over. The “i might as well live in london while i can” is at least as powerful incentive as the “oh the brits don’t want to be part of our EU family” disincentive is.

    SMFS- “We can be a high wage developed country”.

    Yes, but be careful. This language leads very quickly to a law that everyone has a high wage or nothing aka France. I’d express it differently: Cheap jobs are to be a little less cheap because we won’t import foreign competition and expensive jobs are going to be less expensive because we are. You can even wrap it up with the language of reducing inequality if it keeps focus groups happy. However i fear Theresa will do the opposite. Perhaps an under 25 visa treaty with the EU. (So they can work in a bar in berlin and vote for corbyn, higher min wages higher and rent controls when they get back) and ban the German doctors and Dutch engineers.

  10. So if there are less people applying for a job, does that not mean the wages will have to increase?

    I thought lefties would like that?

  11. SMFS–That dole idea is not half bad.

    Increase their benefits by one third if they piss off back home to receive them. Back home UK benefits +one third will make them local Aristos . The deal is that they and theirs never come back–ever. That together with a real start-from-scratch border crew that will stop any more arriving will do the trick. And the cost of the benefits/real border control will be trivial compared to civil war and/or the loss of everything.

  12. Andrew M – we have enough trouble finding jobs for our teachers in the UK.
    My sister in law couldn’t get a position for her full year teaching to complete her qualification, so went to work overseas.
    Bearing in mind she’s only been qualified about 2 years now she gets £50 an hour doing private tutoring on top of a good wage working in a school.
    Not sure she ever wants to come back to Britain to teach, poor conditions, poor pay, poor facilities. No wonder other places in the world that take education seriously are doing well.

    Can we use the foreign aid budget – looks like a perfect fit.

    Ecks

    back home

    Err, why limit it…

  14. Yes, Theo. The Leftard government has created a workforce of juveniles. And a hyper regulated work environment. Same deal here in U.S. Employers here hire Hispanics because they are reliable, hard working, and drama free. That they are cheaper is a lie. Their quality lowers cost, but they are not paid less.

    Government creates a mess; employers work around it. The solution is less government. Government will not accept less government.

    Friend of mine works for probation, and was interviewing a young chav who was up for attacking his own mother while pissed (as you do), and a neighbour who tried to intervene as well. In an attempt to get some sort of mitigation to put before the judge she asked about work (haha) and he replied yes indeed he had worked. Doing what? Well one day driving a van, but he refused to work more than 8 hours so got sacked.After one day. And 2 months in a local warehouse, but got sacked for ‘being sick’. No other work.

    The most funny thing about the entire episode is my friends husband is a manager at that very warehouse, and remembered the name, and was indeed the one who sacked him…….and his father (they started at the same time), both for repeated failures to turn up to work, not even phoning in sick. He said of the 2 months they ‘worked’ there, they were actual in for less than half the days, and worked so slowly when they were there they’d have got canned for that eventually anyway.

    Thats the UK indigenous underclass for you. The warehouse is stuffed full of Goans instead, they turn up, work hard and don’t give everyone lip either.

  16. @Jim

    Is ‘Goans’ a euphemism that has passed me by, or are they really importing workers from Panjim?

  17. “Is ‘Goans’ a euphemism that has passed me by, or are they really importing workers from Panjim?”

    Yep, they really are from Goa. I’ve no idea why so many have landed in the UK suddenly, its not like India is a war zone or something, but they have. And loads have ended up in my local town.

  18. It’s probably Goa’s version of “white flight”
    As their province becomes over-run by European hippies, the locals get the hell out.

    Anyway we can’t have UK teenagers working in patisseries. According to the papers they’re all obese and so’ll be eating all the produce.

  19. Jim, Gamecock

    All of which means that reducing annual immigration into the UK to a few thousands requires a functioning education system. That is, one that delivers literate, numerate, polite, disciplined, hard-working, young people. And that will only be achieved when the teaching unons are broken and child-centred, progressive methods are abandoned.

  20. There are consequences for government interference. A strong economy can mitigate them; a global economy brings them forward.

    The U.S. slapped business with OSHA, EPA, EEOC, NLRB, M-O-U-S-E. As GM and Ford were strong, the Feds got away with it. Not so much, now.

    Trump was elected to reign in all the Federal crap. As a businessman, he knows what it does. Ryan, McConnell, and the rest of the Reichsleiter don’t want to let go.

    “unrealistic job expectations” – Constantly reinforced by the left who always disparagingly describe cleaners, fast-food, hairdressing, hospitality (bar, hotel, restauant), shelf-stackers etc as menial jobs no British person should do. Even trades: brickies, engineers, mechanics, plumbers, sparkies etc are looked down on by the left.

    One of the main reasons my WWII born mother loathes the left – her father was an apprentice to engineer at Short Brothers.

    A shelf-stacker in Tesco is imho more beneficial to others than a BBC comedian.

  22. @Jim
    Thanks for your explanation of “Goans”. There are plenty of immigrants here in S Bucks – mainly first and second generation Poles, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis and assorted W Indies – but I’ve not (knowingly) encountered many from Goa. Might I ask which part of the country you’re referring to?

  23. Interesting that The Guardian in supporting the grand Cecil Rhodes tradition of mining foreign countries for their resources so we can have them instead of the foreign country using them.

  24. A bit of research on Goan immigration reveals this article in the Hindustan Times:
    “Most of them settled in Swindon, Leicester and parts of London.”
    Apparently, many Goans have Portuguese passports and are entitled to live anywhere in the EU. I’ve learnt something new today, which is always pleasing :).
