    Remember the chlorinated chicken that absolutley wasn't going to be allowed into the UK as part of any US trade deal? Well...

    They're coming after our Agrifood industry. Who'd have thought?

    There's a simple answer - don't buy it & the shops stocking it will soon stop

    Get most of my meat from the local butcher who would never take this - all of his stuff comes from withn 30 miles of here.
    This year we will mainly be conquering Europe

    (paused for the moment, but hopefully to be continued)

    Christ that's naive Parkin. People will buy what's cheapest, supermarkets cater from that demand. Millions of families can't afford to use the local butcher

    It isn't just the supermarket butcher aisles, it's the whole supply chain. Ready meals, snacks, restaurants, takeaways, sandwiches, etc.

    Then there's the hormone fed beef.... The market place becomes an unlevel field, so for our industry to compete we have to drop our animal welfare regulations.

    I'm fortunate to be able to use an independent butcher who locally sources. Not everybody has that option.

    Not naive - & I know that many will not have the resources to go other than the lowest common denominator. Those of us who can shouldn't be which will reduce the sales volume anyway.

    And we should drive Morgan, Caterham or McLaren presumably?

    Jamie Oliver did a post on Facebook about agricultural standards being sacrificed for a US trade deal last week, and it was the first time I'd ever seen anything critical of Brexit being shared in my extended family's whatsapp group. Not explicitly critical, either - just a kind of "wait, is this true?" worried disbelief, that only grew when they realised that, yes, things are going to get a lot worse now there's nothing to stop things getting worse.

    Considering how much disbelief most of my relatives have long had when it comes to the idea that anyone could have possibly been against Brexit, this - and it's only anecdotal of course, but still - goes with a general feeling I've been getting that the public might not be as happy about no deal at the end of the year as the Tories expect, let alone the cost of avoiding it through "swashbuckling free trade deals"...

    I find this hard to believe. Farage was a racist from an early age. A letter from a school master

    Farage's long-standing fascist sympathies - including this letter - have been public knowledge for years, and he continues to socialise on the international far-right politics and business circuit to this day. Except that, of course, the people pointing it out weren't also being given a slot on Question Time every week, or a weekly show on LBC, or asked for their opinions on political issues of the day for the sake of getting the "other side", or... (it goes on).

    UKIP were incredibly successful at mainstreaming far-right positions, and especially at becoming the fourth party of British politics (not including the SNP), by continuing the laundering of "legitimate concerns" over immigration that the BNP had some successes with under Nick Griffin and forcing the Conservatives and Labour to continually move right on social and ethnic diversity issues in response. That million votes the BNP got in 2009 didn't disappear, they just transferred neatly across to UKIP by 2014.

    Ditched by LBC now.

    I hope I never see him again for as long as he or I live. Incomprehensible that an actual racist has been readily given so much airtime.

    Good to see the DDR on there, dissolved in 1990.

    I wonder if Siam and Ceylon are also on there?

    He'll be getting a load more through uncancelled DDs fairly soon.

    Hey, I've spent money on watching us in League Cup ties at Blundell Park and Elm Park so I'm no-one to talk about what stupid people spend their cash on, but imagine listening to him, looking at his stupid frog face and thinking yep, I'll send him a few quid. Fucking hell.

    BREAKING: Boris Johnson says the UK's cut-off date for a Brexit deal is July.

    "I certainly don't want to see it going on until the autumn/winter as perhaps in Brussels they would like. I don't see any point in that."

    That allows just 6 weeks to reach a trade deal.

    It’s clearly not going to happen. It’s no deal and ask the Donald to be kind, which is also pointless.

    We've turned down an extension because we're amazingly boneheaded. It's no deal which remember, all these wankers said was never going to happen.
