    “As the United Kingdom is plunged deeper into chaos, Boris Johnson announces that the petrol shortages, soaring energy prices and empty shelves are all part of his master plan. He claims the economy is transitioning towards a high-productivity, high-wage model and away from the ‘old broken model with low wages, low growth, low skills and low productivity, all of it enabled and assisted by uncontrolled immigration’, promulgating the false dichotomy between wages and immigration.


    I tried to get a discussion going on this with a thread under General Discussion:

    Boris promises a high wage economy

    Like the article you quote says, Johnson is trying to claim that the labour shortages are part of a deliberate plan to raise wages. But this is just populist talk, though he is right that the shortages are in large part attributable to Brexit.

    Business, which traditionally supports his party, is not amused.
