I don't get it this. 

Won't they bring germs? Couldn't some the furlough people help?

Don't forget the lazy b'stards on benefits, which there are over a million.

Get them to do it or they get their benefits stopped.

Spotlight interviewed a Devon farmer the other evening, and asked him if British workers ever came to pick the berries.  He said 'yes, but they don't last more than 2-3 days'.
