(not satire – it’s the Tories!)

So we’ve finally found out know what Tories mean when they say “Brexit means Brexit”.

Former banker, Tory minister and very very nearly Tory leader Andrea Leadsom has revealed that post-Brexit the Tories want British workers* to work as fruit pickers.

So Brexit means …

  • … British workers living in tents.
  • … wages as low as £6.70 an hour.
  • … seasonal contracts only
  • … bullying supervisors.

Glad we finally sorted that little mystery out then.


*The Tories are really really keen on us all to pick fruit. In March, former Tory minister Owen Paterson also said British pensioners should pick fruit for less than the minimum wage.
