I'll ask him several times just to see if he's supporting British workers.

You silly people with your smarmy comments are a laugh. There was a petition to safeguard British jobs and I signed it. You people did not. Point taken?

So you want product from areas with even ,less regulation.
Brexit , reason to become a vegetarian..

Sounds like a splendid reason for importing more industrial food from the US and Canada then...

You have no idea who signed it and who didn't. Nor should you.

It's about time they started to perfect lab grown meat so we don't have to worry about any of this anymore.

Good point. We Canadians are constantly dropping dead in the streets as a result of eating our beef, chicken, pork, lamb, dairy, aquaculture, fruit and vegetable products.

Maybe we should heed your wisdom and adopt a more EU-friendly lifestyle of eating organically-reared, hormone-free horse meat, as they do in France and Belgium.

Then you must agree that the lasts thing we need is the importation of foodstuffs that do not meet current standards.
Standards you obviously feel are not strict enough..

Congratulations on your daft comment. If you are happy to eat hormones, fine. I'm not.

Actually, I'm rather partial to donkey stew. Horse meat, especially pony, is too sweet for my taste.

As they say... You are what you eat.

A big deal is made of (including a petition by a national newspaper) a rumoured loss of 90 jobs due to a contract being awarded to a foreign company under UK government tendering rules, even though the new company will create 70 UK jobs.

Yet nothing at all over the actual loss of 300 jobs at one UK store chain, and another 1,000 at a UK vehicle manufacturer. The vehicle manufacturer giving Brexit as a reason for the decision.

I presume Carpetright and Land Rover aren't British jobs too then?

And how is it that we're told we have to support a petition to change a government decision on who makes our passports, yet aren't allowed to ask for a referendum confirming the decision to leave the EU? Democracy, eh!
