BRILLIANT!

 

How much of the world feels about the UK explained very eloquently. 

 

(Also the bits about the U.S.)

 

Here's some more Brexit greatness on the horizon: Fears rat hair, maggots and mould might start appearing in British food following post-Brexit trade deal. Not to mention the chlorinated chicken Michael Gove swore wouldn't appear in the UK...

What absolute fear-mongering nonsense.  According to the Global Food Security Index, the US is ranked 4th in the world for food quality and safety.  The UK is ranked 18th (Germany is ranked 21st).

 

The quality and safety of food in the UK would be vastly improved by more US imports.

I don´t know anything about what will appear in our food. Not sure either how great standards are, either, about animal  transportation throughout Europe. And the standards of sláughterhouses. Scandals galore? Whether in the US or Europe etc. Chickens as an example? Most are force fed in tiny living quarters and that´s it, oder? etc etc...

Its not only about the quality of the food, is also about the quality of the lives of the animals eg

 

as john says, generally chickens in the EU, have to space around them and live a kinda of good quality of life.

In the US i read, that chickens, are kept together, when they get ill, they are given antibiotics and and washed in chlorine to make the meat safe to eat for humans, from the many diseases they get from being in close quarters. When we eat the meat from animals who have been given antibiotics, we get some small part of the antibiotic, which some people think is not good.

 

These rules apply to all animals, which puts up the costs for food, and sometimes diseases get through to humans, which is why you see different food indexes from different places.

 

It not really a just about getting cheap safe food, its about giving the animals we eat a reasonable standard of living as well

Wow - the EU are really firing back at BoJo with some fine English! :lol:

Funny how the EU wishes to protect the British public from US chlorinated chicken and hormone saturated beef, even if BoJo and Cummings don't give a fu*k!

No doubt, they will try to buy a seat at Prince Charles' dinner table.

I guess they're black to reflect the outcome of the brexit shit shower...

The GFS 'panel of experts' are all Americans, but I'm sure they would be unbiased...:ph34r: /s

They really are pathetic. Never mind about losing your rights and freedoms to move around and have dealings in Europe, but is it going to be a nice colour?

So hormone injected beef and antibiotic infested animals are healthy after all?
