Frying pan into the fire -


Recommended Posts

Seems they haven't  learned a lesson from Chinese food production methods -  while we've all been distracted by the 24/7 Corvid News, Parliament has just sneaked a vote under the radar to agree to import US food products as part of a trade deal.   Now before the normal repost - "don't buy it";   sadly lots of folk either don't have the money to choose or simply just go for the cheapest anyway;  especially if it's from a KFC or MacDonalds.    So with a higher consumption of anti-biotic treated meat;  we can await the next medical crisis.       :rolleyes:  😷

Well yes and no. Remember when you disagree with Parliament taking away the ability of the Government to make treaties, what was it the Surrender Act. Well this is another case of Parliament trying to do that and it was rightly defeated. The rubbish spouted by Friends of the Earth was just that and just naked remainer politicking, I have no idea why you of all people support that Obs.

I think it was an ammendment, not a vote against, that got defeated. Notice Richie Sunak voted for the ammendment - respect.   I'm frankly amazed that we don't appear to be pursuing the highest standards possible in food trade, following the Chinese debacle.     :rolleyes:

Obs, Sunak and his PPS both admitted they accidentally voted the wrong way, no respect. Your claim that we are not following the highest food standards and mentioning the Chinese is wholly bogus. The amendment said that they could not agree a free trade deal unless the standards were higher than at present. Well only one thing needs to be above the EU to achieve that and we will not accept changes from the EU moving target. Further there was no specification that had to be met that was higher so the aim was to lock us to EU standards. So YOU are agreeing to a remainer blocking move to block ANY free trade deals. It is surprising that.

I certainly don't agree with Remainers -  Brexit was about our Independence and self determination,  to look after our own best interests - so we can set our own standards not be sucked into the desperation of sub standard agreements.  btw  Food standards will form just one segment of any trade deal.     😷

Good then you did not agree with the amendment at all, shame that you appeared to agree with it in that case. The remainers haven't gone away and setting our own standards should be part of any deal as should deciding for ourselves what practices can be considered just as good. The amendment sought to stick with EU rules on that one segment and a few others I think.

The millions of people from this country who have been on holiday in the USA over the last several years, who have gorged on the food that is served in massive portions while there, and yet have not succumbed en masse to the ensuing food poisoning are surely testimony to the "American food standards are bad" narrative. This is just another attempt by the remoaners to scupper our attempts to secure free trade with the world outside the corrupt, and sinking fast. EUSSR. As Con says standards will be part of any free-trade deal.
