I live outside of the EU and Europe, so not sure what protections are in place. But I'm just assuming if we have Irish cheddar here (with a trade agreement with the EU) then those protections arent as strong as people believe? Are regional protections even in the recent UK-EU trade deal?

"Cheddar" isn't itself a protected name because it became so widely used that it couldn't subsequently be. More specifically named varieties of cheddar are, though.

Yes.

I was looking up the rules for plant exports from the UK to the EU. The admin costs involved are prohibitive for small businesses. I am amazed we agreed to these conditions. A lot of Brexit is about eliminating small traders.

And yet, while we were in the EU, people used to go over to France to visit the garden centres and bring back plants etc, Whan we lived in Spain we had no problems taking packets of seeds, packs of bulbs and even seed potatoes back after a trip to the UK.

The Spanish supermarket chain Mercadona sells two varieties of what is labelled as Cheddar, mild and "curado" (mature). At the beginning of January there was none of the mature one on the shelves of our local branch and we wondered if it was imported from the UK, but from looking at the wrapper of the mild one it is produced near Madrid, so the temporary shortage was obviously due to the very bad weather they had up there at the time. Normal service was resumed after a few days.

Mateus Rose ? I have quaffed a good bit of that in my time It's Portuguese.
I believe protected designation of origin is a EU concept

So can we now have UK champagne etc.?

It's great, isn't it!

Non EU immigration exploding, 300,000+ projected to come from Hong Kong, hundreds crossing the Channel by dinghy, Britain has never been so popular!

It's baffling, isn't it. People take the necessary measures to avoid being kicked out of their homes, jobs and schools and being deported, and it's somehow a sign that "Brexit Britain is more popular than ever".

Record numbers of British citizens in Germany have taken German citizenship, I suppose that's a sign that "being German is more popular than ever".

I was just reading that article!

I'm delighted that the EU27 are benefiting from the UK's stupidity.

This is an opinion from the US:

The comments are as good as the article.

The link was regarding EU citizens!

What "explosion" of non EU migrants? What are you worried about?
The Hong Kong potential figures are just an estimate. What have those crossing the Channel by dinghy got to do with legal migration? (An agreement recently made with French authorities regarding this).

I am a few miles from Cheddar and hardly any cheddar cheese is made there - and not much even in Somerset.

The nearest dairy I know of - less than a mile away - makes Caerphilly.
