    What's stopping you? Surely it's not necessary to leave the EU for that?

    You are quite right, it is just necessary to leave;)

    That's the self-interest but only in the short-term. Long term it might kill.

    Plenty of work available. They cant discriminate against older workers. £8.25 an hour.Look on line. You might get a bit more if you work nights packing.

    In the long run we are all dead.

    I meant what bit of Smith's 'rational' as you put it is missing?

    Sure, but we were talking about fruit pickers. British workers in many sectors are very productive.

    We have great research institutions and skilled engineers so yes, its type of growing demand technology, like renewable energy where we could invest and lead in.

    I have no objections to any of that.

    We have the Welsh National Party, the Scottish National Party, so, why not an English National Party? Would little Englanders (a German form of derision before we 'twice' kicked their behinds) be spoken of the same as little Welshlanders or little Scotlanders?

    British workers are as good (if not then better than) any other worker, provided they are treated properly.

    Carrot and stick or kid gloves?

    Is it really a derisory term? Doesn’t ‘Engländer’ simply mean someone from England in German?

    Little precedes Englander, context is difficult for some people!

    Common sense and fairness is all it takes. Both are often in short supply in business.

    This is emotional drive
    rather than rational self interest.

    So which bit is missing, emotional drive because that's the compulsion of human nature he spoke of?

    Remember I wasn't claiming to quote Smith, I stated my observation that people are innately selfish, self serving and often greedy.
