    Who is going to lend momey to buy robots, British banks?

    Embrace the future - you are just sat in a corner drooling over the past.

      unless the fruit pickers are earning > £40K then they are a net drain on the economy according to the ONS.

      They are also probably exporting their pay.

      Instead a piece of machinery that improves productivity & cuts costs could keep the profit in the UK.

            possibly but if the fruit is grown & sold here how does the money get abroad?

                Via the profiteering tax-dodging majority shareholder assisted by a dubious tax-avoidance scheme? Allegedly.

                    Nothing dodgy about it. You simply hire the equipment and associated IP from an offshore holding company.
