No Deal Brexit
It looks like we won't be getting a trade deal with the awkward EU (surprise surprise)
Does it really matter ?
Roll on the 31st December, and then we can tell the EU to go and take a running jump

History repeating itself.
When General De Gaulle said 'non' twice to oppose the UK joining the Common Market it was a delaying tactic. He wasn't against the UK joining but wanted the Common Agricultural Policy enshrined in European law first so that the British couldn't veto it when they joined. By extension it would later incorporate the Common Fisheries Policy.
''De Gaulle pointed out that Australian, Canadian, and New Zealand farmers were richer than French or German farmers, they were also astonishingly productive and their produce was of higher quality. “Britain continues to supply itself cheaply in Canada, New Zealand, Australia,” he complained at one stage. “What will we do with European, and particularly French surpluses? If we have to spend 500 billion [francs] a year on agricultural subsidies what will happen if the Common Market can no longer assist us?”

"U.S., Britain upbeat as trade talks enter new round"
Now that is a funny coincidence, isn't it ?
In the same week that Britain tells the EU to go and take a running jump as regards a trade agreement, it is announced that trade talks between Britain and America are going very well, me thinks that other things are happening here
The US does not like the EU
Britain has already agreed a trade deal with Japan and other nations

Just make sure yoo wash your chicken before you cook it, I doo that anyway, salt and cold water will get rid of any chlorinated water, as will the cooking process, Hitchens wash their vegetables in chlorinated water, I am sick of telling folk that, I like the idea that a chicken has been washed in chlorinated water, yout drinking water out of the tap has been treated with chlorine, you stink of the chlorine you have been swimming in after yoo have been to the swimming pool ....

wash all your food regardless of were it comes from,whats worse than asda's irish beef for being tough and inedible .
never mind chlorinated chicken and beef from the usa,IF dont like its additives do not purchase the meat.
why the fear ? you do not need to consume the Products from the U.S OF A.
Replied: 21st Oct 2020 at 18:23
the problem is not when you are the one that buys the meat or chicken
it's when you go to a takeaway etc. etc and you do not know the source of the meat

That is right about Asda Irish beef, it is like chooin shoo leather, as is all of Asda beef, I think that they are butchering old cows, instead of bullocks ....

You are correct about Asda beef.
Although I dislike beef myself, apart from in a Lasagna, Chilli etc.
My late husband wouldn't have the beef from there.
He said that you could sole your shoes with it

I actually find that beef from everywhere is the same, tough and horrible, and I think tonker knows why that is, but he won't say Y
Replied: 22nd Oct 2020 at 09:40
I don't eat meat at all now,just fish & veg,& lots of home made veg soup since jathbee gave me the idea a while ago
Replied: 22nd Oct 2020 at 10:28
I agree with Tonker about South American beef .It is delicious,a totally different product to the tasteless Irish and Scottish beef in my opinion.
And why Morrisons stopped selling Australian meat in favour of inferior tasting British products is beyond me,
Replied: 22nd Oct 2020 at 10:39
I used to buy a nice thick slab of Rump or Sirloin and cook it in a frying pan in butter and garlic, along with loads of mushrooms, the resulting steak would be delicious, and tender, and utterly succulent, and served with proper home cooked chips, made with Lincolnshire Maris Pipers, and cooked in a proper chip pon on the hob, add a selection of veg to the dish, such as fresh frozen peas, and baby carrots, and served with lots of bread
Now it doesn't matter how I cook steak, when served it is like eating an old shoo

Glad you kept up the home made soup Nana. A very healthy dinner time meal and all of your 5 a day in one dish.

55% of the food we consume is supplied by UK farmers and growers, 19 % is imported from outside of the EU and 26% from the EU.
Thus the cost of 74% of the food we eat isn't affected by Brexit.
Food imports to the EU include quotas and tariffs from countries that don't have free trade agreements with the EU.
The main categories of food imorts to the UK are fruit and veg, beef and beverages. There must be scope there to get more home supplied food and alternative sources of supply for most of the rest.
