WHAT BRITAIN DESPERATELY NEEDS IS A BRITISH AGRICULTURAL POLICY FOR BRITAIN
ONE THAT CUTS IMPORTS AND DEVELOPS HOME GROWN PRODUCED FOOD
FUCK THE FANCIES THAT FAVOUR FLOWERY OVER FOOD
THAT WANT SALADS IN PACKAGES WASHED IN CHLORINATED WATER.
BRITISH FOOD IS SAFE.
MOST FOOD COMES FROM FARMS AND FARMERS KNOW THAT
UNSAFE FOOD FAILS TO MEET STANDARDS.
BUT IT IS NOT ON FARMS THAT FOOD IS CONTAMINATRED
FOOD IS CONTAMINATED BY THE PROCESSING FOR PROFIT AND IS ADULTERATED BY PARLIAMENTARY POLICIES
THE EU DUMP THEIR UNWANTED FOOD ON OUR DOORSTEP AND NOW FOX GOVE WANT AMERICAN STYLE FAST FOOD TO BE OUR STAPLE DIET.
GROWTH HORMONED MEAT AND CHLORINATED CHICKEN
IT IS NOT SAFE WITH THE CUTS TO PUBLIC HEALTH INSPECTORS BASIC REQUIREMENTS TO INSPECT AND LEAST 20% OF ALL FOOD IMPORTED.
NOW THE TORIES ARE SUPPORTING ONLY 20% OF A CONSIGNMENT TO BE INSPECTED AND THAT IS NOT SAFE.
THE PUBLIC NEED PROTECTION FROM THE TORIES AND
WE NEED SAFE BRITISH PRODUCED FOOD.
WASHED IN CHLORINE ! -TORY CUTS IN PUBLIC HEALTH HAVE AFFECTED UK IMPORTED AND PROCESSED FOOD INSPECTIONS – CAN YOU BELIEVE IN A FOX GOVE ?
Gove refuses to guarantee legal protection for food standards in trade deals
02 Oct 2018
Defra Secretary Michael Gove has refused to guarantee the UK’s high food production standards will be protected in law after Brexit.
Mr Gove and other members of the Cabinet, including Trade Secretary Liam Fox, have repeatedly said they have no intention of dropping standards in pursuit of new trade deals with countries such as the US.
But the Government has so far failed to commit to the protection of standards in law, which has concerned farming and animal welfare groups.
Farm groups ‘furious’ at plot to use Henry VIII powers to alter food standards.
Labour will fight attempts to rewrite food standards ‘tooth and nail’ Labour will fight attempts to rewrite food standards ‘tooth and nail’

“The single most important thing is making sure people across the board would put democratic pressure on any future House of Commons not to dilute our high standards.
“I cannot guarantee, even if it were to be put in statute, that a future Government would not challenge or overturn anything we put in black and white.”
At last week’s Labour Party conference, the Shadow Trade Secretary Barry Gardiner said it was ‘deeply worrying’ that the Government would not commit to protecting standards in legislation.

“Just because the Americans ask for something, does not mean we should feel pressure to grant it,” he said.
“For me, the fundamental principle is if you want to sell your products in a foreign market, you should abide by the customs and standards of that market and respect those and not expect them to be changed.
“That should be the starting point. This idea we have to change everything because the US says so or Australia says so is absolutely false.”
