    Tory party eats itself

    Dairy industry is probably the easiest/fastest/most willing to increase production in fairness rather than just having more cows (though that would happen) increased efficiency would probably make up most of the increased production and you would only need to increase the cost per litre by a couple of pence to encourage them to do it
  6. A lot more work involved with holiday lets , cleaning, maintenance, checking people havent nicked stuff each week
  7. Nice trip out in the kayak this afternoon

    Brexit or Eurin?

    Yeah but it's not just about the benefits system. When you're part of the EU other EU members are free to move over and start working - though this isn't always a bad thing if it were mostly unskilled labour it's probably not that beneficial to the UK. Keeps wages low because there's more competition, of course for some that's a positive and some it's a negative. Inside the EU you can't refuse those workers from coming in, outside of the EU you can (if the government wants to).
  9. No the cleddau in Pembrokeshire!

    8-5 they work 11p a bunch the good workers will pick 900 or so bunches nearly £100 a day, not too bad for a job that requires little skill or training imo
  11. Beans looking good tonight

    To be fair this does happen, but as I said before it depends on your work ethic. If you're paid per punnet or tray you can earn as much as you can physically pick. If the picker is the type to spend the afternoon playing on their phone they won't get much. It's not hard to earn decent money on fruit/veg picking if you put the effort in

    Can't see many people being interested in soil health until it's too late sadly
