So Brexit certainly doesn’t cause all the supply problems, it just makes it worse. Critics accuse the British government of not recognizing this, hiding behind the pandemic. And government-driven solutions will only solve the problem in the short term, it sounds.
Temporary patch work, with no long term vision. As empty store shelves and traffic jams at gas stations provide a stark television picture, but other consequences of Brexit are gradually becoming apparent. British companies that export a lot, for example, are having a hard time.
However, it could have been much worse. Not without reason the British government decided to postpone the inspection of products from the European Union for another 9 months. The company’s own certificate, a guarantee of high-quality products on the shelf, has not yet been introduced. Worse has thus been avoided, but at the same time the delay hides – perhaps even greater – the consequences of Brexit.
Many Britons cannot forget that Brexit has contributed to this strange situation. Certainly not those who voted for Brexit during the Brexit referendum in 2016. Or they would reluctantly admit it, but would have voted the same way with this knowledge. “You only need to break a few eggs to make an omelet.”
