Bring back the British Empire, that's what I say!Wise words from this woman are a blueprint for the future. IMF names Kristalina Georgieva as new head
Never has the saying...
‘United We Stand, Divided We Fall’...been more significant.
This country led by idiots, appointed by morons and supported blindly by arrse vermin, have no idea why.
Minor detail, but his comments about cucumbers are wrong. Straight cucumbers area product of the industry, they can be more easily packed and therefore a higher density and cheaper packing is achieved. Simples.EU making vegans food illegal. As if they don't have more important things to discuss.

However it sounds good when you can blame the EU for everything, rightly or wrongly.
AL1. The EU does not want to ban vegan food, merely the use of the term burger in connection with vegan food. The latter being a growth industry where large sums a demanded for dirt cheap ersatz products. That is where the real problem lies.
Aldi and Lidl prices will depend on where the products come from. British made or grown products should not be affected, european stuff may or may not go up in price, that depends on exchange rates and duties imposed.So, what about Aldi and Lidl next year how will their prices fare ? Or because they are such a big company can they cut their own deal with Boris ??
Not sure about that. There’s a thing about CAP that people haven’t mentioned which is that largely manufacturing procedures will largely stay on hold. We could find that more is taken into home use but the qualities will remain the same. Moreover Defra will still want their information, so there will be few savings in that area. Defra will still be responsible for internally produced food. What farmers will be able to do is become a bit more competitive.Given that the CAP keeps prices artificially high in the EU, I would expect to see food prices fall significantly after Brexit - tempered only by the need to phase in the reduction in import tariffs slowly so British farming has time to adapt.
Lidl and Aldi prices have had a massive increase in the last year - A lot of the stuff I use to buy, I stopped buying - now I make most of my food myself from ingredients. It tastes much better and I am not eating bulked up crap, also I know what's in my food. Bratwurst prices went up about 50p just in the last year so I won't be buying them again. I've even started making my own bread and pastry type stuff such as pasties/pies etc.Aldi and Lidl prices will depend on where the products come from. British made or grown products should not be affected, european stuff may or may not go up in price, that depends on exchange rates and duties imposed.
When I went to Shape in Belgium in 1977 I noticed how much more expensive everything was there, especially food. I went back for a week to Ostend in 1981 and found that food prices were pretty much on par with the UK.Given that the CAP keeps prices artificially high in the EU, I would expect to see food prices fall significantly after Brexit - tempered only by the need to phase in the reduction in import tariffs slowly so British farming has time to adapt.
Sickening that this thread is about gloating over potential problems for the EU whilst ignoring our own predicament. There is no reliable information that Britain will fair better, only that brexit is bad for both, we need each other but the 27 versus 1 look more likely to recover and sustain less damage.
Seems not all countries are rushing for funds from the EU Covid relief fund, seems they remember how the EU & Co. squeezed Greece, Cyprus and the others. They are either looking at loans from else where or are willing to muddle on, with little growth and struggling with existing debt.
Long memories sovereign nations have and I cant say I blame them, its a double edged sword and both edges will cause misery for independent sovereign nations.
Bazooka blunted as EU countries snub recovery loansMemories of the Troika and unwillingness to pile up debt are making many governments squeamish at borrowing EU money.
You can add into that that Italy, Spain and France are in the too big to fail category. If they do down (Italy leading the change over the cliff edge), it's also bye, bye euro and bye, bye the EU in it's present form. The room for tin can kicking for the EU is steadily reducing - and the time at which it will face an existential crisis is fast approaching.
Good job we're out as the EU is sure to try and throw massive amounts of money at the problem to stave off disaster. We're going to escape that particular begging bowl.
