Unemployment is high, and will get higher. What Britain needs is the creation of many more stable jobs, especially now many jobs will go in the public sector.
We need to grow and process food here, not keep importing. I was in the ridiculous position the other day of not being able to buy British beetroot, broccoli or green beans, when this is the time of year I could be growing them in my garden (if I was able to).
There is plenty of good growing land in this country available that lies fallow because growers cannot compete with cheap imported food.
