AggregateIQ: the obscure Canadian tech firm and the Brexit data riddle

Not only do most of us not really know what Brexit means we don’t know who paid for it. Underhand methods were used by people, now in government, to influence voters with what were clearly lies. There are no consequences for the lies or to the people who lied. No wonder so few trust politicians and the political process.
The consequences of Brexit as laid out by Remainers were said to be ‘Project Fear’ yet those negative consequences look closer to reality day by day.

Esther McVey wants to make teenagers carry the can for Brexit

The Tory DWP minister Esther McVey has announced a bold new policy for mitigating the economic fallout from Brexit; she wants teenagers who were too young to even vote in the EU referendum to carry the can.

The exodus of EU workers is already harming various sectors of the British economy including health and care services, tourism and hospitality, manufacturing, and the agricultural sector.

The number of nurses coming to work in the NHS from the EU has collapsed by 90%; the hospitality industry are projecting a huge post-Brexit recruitment crisis; and £millions worth of fruit and veg are already being left to rot in British fields … but Esther McVey thinks that the solution is to get British teenagers to plug the gaps by getting Saturday jobs!

It’s not just that these youngsters are being robbed of their right to live, study, and work in any of 27 other European nations as the result of a referendum they weren’t even able to vote in, they’re now being told by out-of-touch Tory millionaires that they should carry the can for the economic fallout of this decision too.

In a way this approach does kind of make sense from a rudimentary greed-based, pro-corporate, hard-right agenda. Why should corporations pay European Union workers full minimum wage of £7.83 per hour to pick fruit and veg or work in the hospitality industry, when they could get a bunch of British teenagers in and pay them as little as £4.20 per hour?

But of course it’s necessary to skip over the fact that the cumulative worker-hours of a few tens of thousands more teenagers doing evening and Saturday jobs will never be able to make up the huge labour shortfall Brexit is already delivering, but since when were stuff like facts and evidence ever important to the Brextremists?

It could be argued that Brexit was delivered by pensioners, so pro-Brexit pensioners rather than teenagers should be the ones to fill the gaps in the economy by picking fruit and veg or working in the hospitality industry for just £4.20 per hour.

This makes a lot more sense than trying to shift the workload onto teenagers because there are far more pro-Brexit pensioners than teenagers. And anyone who believes that Britain should be aiming to become a high-skill high-tech economy must surely believe that teenagers should be concentrating on their studies, rather than picking fruit and veg for £4.20 an hour because the Brextremists chased all the migrant workers away.


But the Brexit-voting pensioners obviously won’t lift a finger because they’ll be perfectly happy as long as all of the negative consequences of the chaotic “make it up as we go along” Tory Brexit farce are loaded onto the shoulders of the younger generations who didn’t even get a vote on the issue.

Vote Leave acted illegally during EU referendum, whistleblowers’ dossier claims:

thoughtlessarse:

Lawyers acting for Brexit whistleblowers have handed a 50-page evidence dossier to the UK’s election watchdog, claiming it indicates Vote Leave acted illegally during the referendum.

Chris Wylie and Shahmir Sanni both worked with Vote Leave as it fought the 2016 campaign, but now say an urgent probe is needed into key figures in the group – two of which have since become Downing Street advisers.

Speaking as the dossier was presented to journalists on Monday, Mr Wylie said the evidence cast doubt on the result of the referendum, that it should now be re-run and also called for the No 10 aides to be sacked.

Well, absolutely nobody saw the result coming, not one poll. The look on the faces of the leave campaign the next morning said everything.Chris and Sanni need to take care. They are rocking the boat and I applaud them but, be careful.
