But we've been constantly hammered that we import more than we export, so surely a higher £ is better overall, no?

Indeed,  we need to be producing more at home rather than importing.   We can now do this that we are free of EU policies such as the CFP and CAP.

As the pound rises it sucks in more imports as they become cheaper - conversely it makes UK exports more expensive and so reduces those.

Oddly enough when the pound dropped considerably after the brexit vote the thickos were on here bleating how it would make UK exports more competitive.

In reality, it is nothing more than the RTB/JOOLS/Moy thing scrabbling around to deflect from the shtshow that is now engulfing UK business courtsey of brexit.

which given the UK labour shortage would simply mean more immigration

- which, if I remember, is what over excited you Brexit thickos in the first place 🙄

We already control exports for drugs that the NHS needs and I am sure we will do it for new vaccines, as we can now put ourselves first.  We have been importing food because farmers in the UK have been paid not to produce through set-aside.  When we have a glut we can export, but not before then.

Indeed. In fact as this is the "positive" Bexit head I thinking of suing under the Trade Descriptions Act 1972 for deliberate misrepresentation - "because there ain't any m'Lud" 

The Trade Description Act 1972 protects the trade industry by prohibiting the inaccurate description of goods and services, and the use of false trade descriptions (eg, fraudulent or misleading prices, statements, descriptions or trademarks). It also provides for the use of a Trade Description Order which, when served on the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs, allows the ministry's Enforcement Division to take action against the infringers. The Enforcement Division can conduct a raid on the premises and may seize and forfeit the infringing products.

I don't envisage a labour shortage in the short-term for obvious reasons and neither should you.

1 minute ago, nevermind, neoliberalism has had it said:

UK companies are registering on the continent. They will pay taxes on the continent not here, whatever tweety pie might drag up from the past political drivel.

Yes, but EU companies are registering here for similar reasons so it will balance out.

Thank you for not answering the question - aircraft engines and insurance - but it's no a surprise as there isn't an answer is there. 

Now on to your new deflection. So we can make up the 40% of the foodstuffs we import by putting back into production the 5% of land that was set aside? That's a miracle of "loaves and fishes" magnitude. Or do you have some better statistics to share?

Why couldn't they import labour from the UK 

You'll have to explain but Jersey is not the UK.

It's a crown dependency and in the CTA

I would have liked to think UK citizens might have had a head start when it came to getting work in Jersey, rather than people on the other side of the world, especially given the current circumstances

First of all keep up with the worlds vaccination programmes, it must cause you great upset that after a slow start the EU and the US are now well on track.

Secondly I was talking to a couple of doctors today who said isn’t it amazing that Boris refers to the ‘ vaccine rollout ‘, but the rollout has nothing to do with Boris it’s ‘ The NHS vaccine rollout ‘. However they also pointed out that he refers to test and trace as ‘ NHS Test and Trace ‘ but test and trace has absolutely nothing to do with the NHS.

British and Irish citizens do not need work permits to work in Jersey 

Filipinos do

Why have the farmers of Jersey chosen to employ people from the other side of the world who need permits, instead of people who live next door and don't 

It's a minor point, its not a huge amount of jobs, but it's potentially indicative of what might happen in the UK in spring and summer

Pity they can’t make the NHS stronger and stronger with £350 million pound a week.

The quote was quite specific ‘ After we leave the EU this will free up £350 million per week for The NHS ‘.

Why does he refer to Test and Trace as ‘ NHS Test and Trace ‘ ? Test and Trace has nothing to do with The NHS, I would be interested to know.
