PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction

THE BREXITEERS ARE RIGHT TO BE CONCERNED – 
 
 
The Radical
11th July 2018
 
– OUR OWN FARMING POLICY IS BASED ON THE EU MODEL.
 

 
WHEN MAY SAYS WE WILL HAVE OUR OWN FARMING AND FISHING POLICY – IT IS BASED ON EU RULES
 
THERE ARE IMPORT FEARS 
 
“The other factor from a producer perspective is that, by continuing to maintain the EU’s strict standards on animals and animal products, the UK will be much less likely to be able to import food produced to different standards from other countries.
 
This would block American beef from coming our way, or the oft-mentioned chlorinated chicken.
 
This has provoked fury from Brexiters, who say the whole point of leaving was to have the power to negotiate on our own terms, and lower the cost of living by removing the protectionist barriers that the EU has erected, particularly for farming.
 
And, while we will have our own agricultural policy after leaving, by continuing to produce food to standards set by the EU, it means that we would still be aligned to many of their rules, without us having any say.
 
That might be a problem if, for example, EU regulators decide to ban glyphosate in future.

 
Even if a UK government decided it didn’t agree with the decision, it could mean it would be very difficult to carry on using it”  – FARMERS WEEKLY.
