Consequences Of Brexit [Part 9] Read First Post Before Posting

Vaati

Let me make this perfectly clear - any personal attacks will get you a suspension. The moderating team is not going to continually issue warnings. If you cannot remain civil and post within forum rules then do not bother to contribute.

 

In addition to remoaner we are also not going to allow the use of libdums or liebore - if you cannot behave like adults and post without recourse to these childish insults then please refrain from posting. If you have a problem with this then you all know where the helpdesk is.

My bold. 

 

Excellent idea.  Much better for the environment & balance of payments as well. 

The industry has been trying to persuade the British public to eat more than the handful of species they do for decades, even Hugh Fearlessly Eat-it-all had a go at convincing them, all to no avail. The British public stubbornly insists on eating largely foreign seafood whilst mainly shunning the local stuff and I doubt Brexit will change that.

But to be followed by a campaign for roast lamb and lamb rogan josh.

Only yesterday on James Martin's Saturday morning cooking show, he in was interviewing a producer of freshly made 'Yorkshire' pasta from Malton, who uses locally milled flour to produce the pasta.  He was raving about it & used it in one of his recipes.  Just as good as the Italian one but not imported hundreds of miles across Europe.  As I say, better for the environment & its supporting local industries in food manufacturing & farming. 

 

Just finished watching tonight's episode of 'Countryfile', again they highlighted & interviewed the owners of Yeo Valley Farm, makers, according to the programme, of a quarter of all the yogurt produced in the UK.  Their farm & production is totally environmentally sustainable due in part to solar energy.  The owners of the farm also run programmes helping the local community including helping rehabilitation of offenders, placing them in work. 

 

Again, a laudable British producer who deserves support & by supporting such producers, people would be benefitting the environment & wider community projects.

As for your posting, "But to be followed by a campaign for roast lamb and lamb rogan josh", do you want to explain further because I just don't follow?

indeed, and there will be many more producers like that large and small.

 

to increase the chances of sucess and encourage new entrants it would need a change in supermarket buying policies or possibly a change in shopping habits to use local high street shops stocking locally sourced produce (which would have lots of other benefits) , a change in investment policies in the financial sector or a government backed business bank to ensure capital is easier to access and a sensible industrial/food policy from the government, something lacking in the last 40 years. 

 

none of these are dependent on membership or not of the EU, it's just the various stakeholders chose not too.

presumably a reference to the fact that most lamb is exported.

That would depend on where the wheat the 'locally milled flour' came from.

Oh absolutely! But not worth betting the industry on it.

The locally milled flour came from a farm, just outside Malton, (surroundng area) where it is milled & the pasta manufacturer is based in Malton.   Hence the term 'local' which the manufacturer made a big play of. 

 

Go to ITV Hub.  I'm sure you could find & view the programme yourself?

Fair enough. Given the amount of wheat we import into this country for milling from places like Canada the term 'locally milled' sounded curiously specific.

Apart from trading access to fish for access to market - but that's out of favour at the moment.

 

The government has made a big thing about investing in the UK fishing industry so it can take advantage of larger post Brexit quotas. If they don't solve the where to sell the catch problem that will just be a waste of time and money.

And remember, when it comes to cheese, the UK produces far more varieties than France.  There's bound to be a variety of British cheese that could replace your favourite French variety? 

 

There's a stall in The Moor Market, that sells, I'd say, at least 30 varieties of British cheese.  Far more than you'd find in Sainsbury's supermarket on the other side of The Moor.

You'll be pleased to know I mainly eat UK cheese anyway. I even eat a UK produced brie because it's not made with animal rennet.

In other news Douglas carswell - one time Tory MP, UKIP MP- has now emigrated to the great state of Mississippi. I'm sure there's something about turning over a new sheet in there somewhere, but I'll leave that with you.
