    Brexit staff shortages cause alarm in London

    “The UK civil service has more than 2,000 vacancies for Brexit-related roles, prompting fears of departmental understaffing ahead of potential widespread disruption in the case of a no-deal Brexit next month.

    Officials in some critical functions have been ordered to avoid taking holidays in January or February as Whitehall faces one of the biggest challenges in its history.

    The staff shortages have caused alarm in London as the UK and EU have warned that talks aimed at securing a post-Brexit trade deal could collapse within days.”

      Cushy job with a nice pension, knock off at 5 on the dot every day, I'm surprised they're not inundated with applications.
      His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

        Exactly right, why won’t these jobs get applicants?

        Be afraid, be very afraid

            No problem, there are up to 600,000 Hong Kongians going to the UK in the next couple of years, many of them highly educated (and a few PRC sleeper agents hidden in there) to fill up all these and other roles (but not fruit picking): UK government 'has underestimated takeup for Hong Kong resettlement scheme' | Hong Kong | The Guardian
            Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
