I always understood, that after brexit we would use an australian type points system so trades that were required were given immigration priority. My only problem is that the government seem not to use it quickly enough.

Was this another Brexit promise that isn't coming to fruition? I have to be honest i do not remember that one.

I remember being told we'd stay in the single market and customs union

I remember being told remainer concerns were part of 'project fear' and it was all doom mongering.

Are they relaxing their rules on immigration to intice brits to drive their lorries?

Not sure what they are allowed to do but I do know that we can use the immigration powers reclaimed by our new independence to help out supply problems.A temporary, emergency relaxation of visa rules now to let more EU drivers in is the right thing to do.

When will we see positive signs of our new independence then. Because currently it’s gloom, shortages, sleaze etc.

So in other words ... "Brexit is good…because it allows us to fix the problems caused by Brexit". 

Also are 5000 visa waivers going to be enough when the shortage of drivers is over 100,000? The maths doesn't add up Boris.

Well let me take you back to 5 years ago... 

A quote from Daniel Hannan

"Five years from now Britain will be flourishing as never before and people will look back and wonder why we didn't do this long before”

Allowing 5,000 in and telling them to bugger off on Christmas Eve is hardly going to have them queuing up at the border is it?
