What a huge Farkup

If they'd just put the money they've wasted on Brexit into improving the NHS .....

He said he voted for brexit as a business man. serious question: what did he think was going to happen?

"As a businessman, I voted Brexit."

Methinks he is a special kind of idiot and one of the worst businessmen I've seen.  It seems that most of his staff are not English but other countries in the EU.  An immediate repercussion of Brexit is that he loses most of his staff.  Didn't think that through.  Did you, Rockefeller?

He goes on to acknowledge that many of the hospitality customers are from the EU.  Brexit will make him lose much of his customer base.  Rather than acknowledge he made a big mistake that was probably driven by racism, he complains about the negative effects.  Nice.

10 to 1 the Brits will still fall for whatever Nigel sells them next when he inevitably resurfaces with another bright idea.

How does voting away your staff and suppliers equate with voting "as a businessman," exactly?

I think this is one of those situations where people add "as a businessman" to whatever bullshiat they are spouting and they think it makes them infallible.  Just like "as a parent."

You see, when a businessman votes, he acts like an idiot and does stupid things that he thinks are smart because he imagines himself smart because he's a businessman. There's a special cloak you wear, you get them and Dunning and Kruger's department store. It's like a cloak of invisibility but the wearer wears it as a cloak of invulnerability bestowed upon them by the Sacred Royal Order of Businessmen.

Interesting. It's almost as if conservatism, ethnocentrism, and short sightedness go hand in hand. It's a conundrum.

No, not the worst. Most of the businessmen in UK voted for Brexit. Most of them are still in denial about its reprocussions. This guy at least is started to recognize it was his own fault.
 
2021-07-24 8:42:58 AM  
As a businessman he thought getting rid of all the minimum wage immigrant workers and the European logistics hub meant he would thrive with the same pisspoor business model that he developed while they were still here.
Um, no.

All the bad people would be thrown out of the country, and all the money that was spent on their welfare and health care would be taken by the Brexit Fairy who would leave it under the pillows of all the good little business owners.

Also, burgundy passports.

This face you got,
This here phizzog you carry around,
You never picked it out for yourself
at all, at all--did you?
This here phizzog--somebody handed it
to you-am I right?
Somebody said, "Here's yours, now go see
what you can do with it."
Somebody slipped it to you and it was like
a package marked:
"No goods exchanged after being taken away"--
This face you got.

My mother voted for trump because "he's a businessman."

There's no explaining to her that even if he were a good businessman - which he is not - I don't want my country run like a business.
 
2021-07-24 8:49:35 AM  
He's complaining because he can't find people to work for his shiatty low wages. Rather than be a "ha ha brexit" thread this should be a "pay more ya cheapskate" thread.

nah he just pretends he can't see all the dozens of negative stories about brexit.

You have to remember that to most brexiteers, it's more important that they never admit they made a mistake than to care about the well being of the country.

Look at the guy in the story as a prime example, he says "as a businessman" as though he is 2 farking different people and he's not the one who made the fark-up.

Well, voting as a shiatty businessman is still voting as a businessman.

NIgel will propose that "EU venture capitalists" buy up all the pubs/hotels, including their holding companies so that the typical "European" will come to England instead of his dacha.

Not really.  He later said if he voted "As  A PERSON", he would not vote for Brexit again.
He won't admit that it was a bad BUSINESS decision.

Why doesn't he go pick up the beer himself? Seems like an easy, simple, boot strappy solution.
 
2021-07-24 9:05:12 AM  
I don't know what he's complaining about, he got exactly what he wanted. Surely he must have been aware that a lot of his staff were from Europe and that they couldn't work for him post brexit. He must also have been aware that a lot of truck drivers were also from the continent, and that they couldn't work in the U.K. after brexit.

The reason these people were hired in the first place was that the locals wouldn't do those jobs for the pay being offered. Brexit removed that pool of cheap labor, so now those businesses will have to pony up more money to fill those positions or close.

1. Set up boat in NE mexico and take the immigrants who are otherwise being treated poorly
2. enjoy cheap farm labor
3. when they become british enough to vacation in spain, cancel the return flight and replace them before they become british jerks

They think it does.  They think it absolved them of responsibility because they weren't doing it as an "individual" who may have done it for something like "I don't want those immigrants!".  Nope, they did it as a "business owner" which implies they were doing it for the good of their business.

As far as I'm concerned, unless you articulate what that means, I'm assuming it means "those damn immigrants."

As far as "as a business owner" goes.... I know a ton of dumbass and selfish business owners, so them implying they're infallible by dropping that line, unless I know and respect them, I'm going to assume they're the selfish dumbass variety if they use that line.
