London Sausages in a dressing gown are a Christmas classic in the UK. Therefore, the excitement was great when Andrew Keeble, director of the English sausage maker Heck, recently warned his compatriots about possible bottlenecks in deliveries during the holidays. The reason: many slaughterhouses have reduced production due to acute labor shortages in the kingdom and are delivering less meat.
Keeble himself is also desperately looking for staff. His son Roddy even got a truck driver’s license to deliver goods because there are so few truck drivers. “Everyone has their opinion, why are there these bottlenecks,” said the “Daily Mail” businessman. “The truth is that many Eastern Europeans have gone home and do not want to return. They don’t feel welcome after Brexit, which is a shame. “
Nine months after Brexit, the UK is a country on the edge. If the supply of “pigs in blankets” is no longer even guaranteed, something must be wrong.
