Boris Govt Looks to 30,000 Migrants from Countries Including Belarus, Russia to Work Farms

Boris Johnson’s government is scrapping the ‘Pick for Britain’ drive for British farm workers and increasing migrant recruitment to 30,000, with hundreds to come from the likes of Belarus and the Russian Federation.

The Tory government launched the ‘Pick for Britain’ campaign in 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic began in earnest, resulting in restrictions on international travel despite their own efforts to put off halting travel from coronavirus hotspots such as Italy, Iran, China, and even Wuhan itself until well after the disease had become endemic.

With hundreds of thousands out of work or furloughed on reduced pay across the country, the government made a great show of inviting people to come into the fields, with the Queen’s heir, Prince Charles, backing the scheme in a public message which recalled the wartime Land Army.

Tens of thousands of Britons answered the call — but few, in the end, were actually recruited by bosses, with the Tories making arrangements for them to fly in migrants on crowded aircraft despite the pandemic to do the work as usual.
