  1. But it was originally just about trade though, 'What began as a purely economic union has evolved into an organization spanning policy areas, from climate, environment and health to external relations and security, justice and migration. A name change from the European Economic Community (EEC) to the European Union (EU) in 1993 reflected this' https://europa.eu/european-union/about-eu/eu-in-brief_en
  2. Ah that makes more sense, yes company i work for packs a couple too
  3. I'm sure this is wrong, McCain's alone buy about 20% of all potatoes produced in the UK, and I'm sure they make more than 1% of the frozen market. I'm sure we import some but I don't think it's quite as extreme as that
  4. With your already chlorine washed pre packed fruit/veg/salads/potatoes
  5. Don't personally think we will see the collapse of one industry. I grow veg so see tremendous staff turnover and well aware of the struggle getting labour , but we will find people, we always manage to.
  6. Most of that isn't relevant to what I typed though. I'm not talking about whether the us model is better - I don't care either way as our food production is farm assured under red tractor I'm not suggesting we can/should be producing more cheaply, its cheap as it is. I was pointing out that if we needed to expand it wouldn't be difficult in that particular sector. If we needed it be more self sufficient we absolutely could be, currently we aren't because we don't need to be.
  7. Food will be imported still maybe we will export less and that will find its way into the home market (not necessarily better/worse and not necessarily more unhealthy/healthy), some products may be more expensive some won't. As I said peoples eating habits might have to change
  8. Fastest, cheapest and most efficient meat to produce. We also already produce quite a high % of the chicken we eat, and poultry probably the simplest (and quickest) sector of the agricultural industry to increase production in. No matter how much of a doom mongerer you are with regards to brexit, people will still buy food, if there was a recession people don't stop eating but they may change their eating habits, you drop more expensive meats, steak etc, and eat more cheaper white meat.
  9. Be honest though, if £350 million a week was your main motivator for voting it's likely they could have put any number there and they would have voted the same way
  10. Yes but if the popular vote won in the us they could campaign in about four states and win
  11. I agree, surely it's got to be NATO that has kept peace in Europe rather than the EU
