    A very interesting, almost unbelievable bit of film.

    A different world. I am glad I am not part of it.

    On BBC news today, the problem with container ships is not just a UK problem, as many would have you believe its because we left the EU, the shortage of lorry drivers is also not just here in UK,

    Personally I think the problem which as has been said is not just in the UK, is that during Covid restrictions World Wide many people left their jobs in various professions not just lorry drivers and have not returned, maybe retired or moved to other jobs.
