The U.K.’s Gas Crisis Is a Brexit Crisis, Too2

Until now, the government has blamed Covid-related restrictions for a spate of shortages. But as virus restrictions ease and fuel runs short, the focus is shifting to Britain’s exit from the E.U

But there was Olaf Scholz, the leader of the Social Democratic Party, telling reporters on Monday that the freedom of movement guaranteed by the European Union would have alleviated the shortage of truck drivers in Britain that is preventing oil companies from supplying gas stations across the country.

My 2 cents opinion: Global interdependence is the future, specially if you are an island. Blaming foreigners for natives being unemployed backfired, it seems that the natives do not want to drive a truck.

Mi opinión: La interdependencia global es el futuro, especialmente si eres una isla. Culpar a los extranjeros por el desempleo de los nativos resultó contraproducente, parece que los nativos no quieren conducir un camión.
