DMcG BS: Brexit & other UK political topics (2755* d) RE: BS: Brexit & other UK political topics 17 Aug 21


So today my daughter contacted the florist who was supposed to be providing the flowers for her wedding on 25th September. The florist had to tell her there will be no flowers because many of her suppliers have gone bust and those that are left cannot get anything like their normal supply. No doubt covid-19 plays a big part, but the trade organisations of florists were saying their supply was badly disrupted even before the pandemic because of the paperwork issues (you probably remember the seed potaro issue for Scottish potatoes; flowers have similar issues.

I mentioned this on another site where Brexit supporters were denying shortages, and their response was find a different florist and why should flowers from Kenya be affected. Apparently they do not understand that that is asking Kenya to supply everything it did plus a lot more ... But as I had to point out, even if we can, that is more work I have to do because of Brexit. (Our florists said the reason their suppliers went bust was because of supply issues, not staffing issues.)
