Time for Defra to use our freedoms from the EUJUNE 5, 2021 1 COMMENTThe Defra website is more of a history lesson than a celebration of new opportunities and freedoms for farmers. Instead of brimming over with the changes they want to make to our fishing and farming policies now we can control them, it faithfully records the EU laws, rules and old schemes that dominated us for so long. It tells us there is a Countryside Productivity scheme offering only small grants funded by the EU, but goes on to say it is closed. It tells us there were forestry,Water, waste and food productivity schemes but these are also all closed.It is true it does also now set out more recent U.K. schemes of support but most of these are for environmental improvements. Some of its latest initiatives in wilding and nature look like UK versions of work being done in the EU. Some are worthwhile but the overall impression given is the Department wants less land available for food production and has not yet got round to offering positive support for better farming to boost our output.You could of course say why not leave it all to the market? There are two reasons. The first is other countries do not , so the UK has to compete under the EU free trade arrangements with farms on the continent that do get subsidies and other support. The second is if the Department itself is offering cash incentives not to farm on potential farmland it may need to level the playing field by offering suitable help for good farming on that land. It is all very well to say wilding cuts the carbon output on the land wilded, but if we then have to transport food into the UK from hundreds or even thousands of miles away, grown and produced in carbon generating ways, we have done nothing to save the planet and much to damage the UK economy.The government has promised new schemes to stimulate innovation, investment and promotion of more U.K. food. I wish it would get on with them. We need to promote our farms and food now. There is no good reason for delay..... John Redwood

Share price back to where it was before results, so given back all gains. Looks good recovery play at these levels - food is performing very strongly and largely covers current market cap, while clothing should benefit from removal of much of the competition and rotation of store estate. If they make a success of developing the online platform then that would be icing on the cake.

1644.........Jon, Wales , Wednesday, June 02, 2021, 23:34:THIS IS TRULY DISGRACEFUL, SICKENING, AND REVOLTING, which indicates a potential risk of harm to human health here in the UK.Well done to the Brexit Facts4EU.Org team for exposing this important issue.UK MPs must IMMEDIATELY repeal EU rules on food safety as being, 'not fit for purpose in the UK' - we can look after ourselves without EU interference - that's why the UK majority rightly voted to Leave?ANY MPs or politicians in the United Kingdom who fail to oppose the EU commission on their food safety, as set out in the above article, should hang their heads in shame.This can be repealed extremely quickly in the House of Commons using this evidence based article, and I for one WILL be watching which UK MPs and others actually address the matter at a political level?British people can see through the spin UK politicians often try - in this case, that would be a bad move on their part.Just another reason to dump the WA / PD, and NI Protocol (the latter should be done unilaterally and NEVER been agreed as it contravenes the GFA).THERE IS NOW EVERY REASON TO BUY BRITISH (or from those approved by UK standards)?

I respond to the Farming Today challengeJUNE 3, 2021 POST A COMMENTOn Tuesday Morning BBC's Farming Today asked listeners to send in ideas for future programmes. They certainly need some to vary their diet of stories on climate change, the dangers of free trade and the need to wild the countryside. We have had five years of anti Brexit and climate change dominance.So here's some of the missing stories and viewpoints they can catch up on1 The dangers of free trade with the EU to our farms. Why did we lose so much market share to the EU as members of the single market and how can we correct now?2. The way we can raise animal welfare standards now out of the EU, and how we can enforce higher standards on EU imports3. The scope for a much bigger timber industry in the U.K. as the plans for planting so many more trees are rolled out4. Why DEFRA has still not set out its subsidy and support packages for more food growing and farm productivity improvements.How can we expand our food production?5.When will the U.K. ban the large industrial foreign supertrawlers overfishing our waters and damaging the marine environment?6. Will the U.K. regulators and water industry put in more reservoir capacity so farms in future will have access to irrigation water in dry spells?7.As there is growing demand for U.K. fruit and veg What more needs to be done to expand the U.K. industry. Can we reverse the damage done by past EU grants to grub up U.K. orchards.8. An evaluation of training, wages and career prospects in farming to nurture more home talent and increase the number of better paid jobs.9. An assessment of damage to dairy in the U.K. from keeping U.K. short of milk quota for many years.10. Opportunities to reclaim land for agricultural use through better drainage, water management, and sea defences.Yesterday I was relieved to learn from this programme's expert witness on landslips in the Brecon Beacons indicating climate change that landslips are the "canary in the mine" and the canary is "singing loudly" at the moment. That is a relief, so no undue landslips then. The canary in the mine did not sing but passed out if dangerous carbon monoxide gas was present. How do the BBC find such well informed experts?.....

Veganism does not destroy the body, utter rubbish. With any change in diet you have to gradually do it over a six month period gradually reducing meat, fish, eggs and milk products and really should ask your doctor first to make sure the diet change will not course you problems especially if you have any health problems. In her case it's obvious she was eating junk foods rich in sugar!! and must not have had a balanced diet. Plus if she was eating a good vegan diet you would never feel the urge to snack all the time between meals, which she claims she had to do. I very rarely eat between meals. Also, total rubbish when she says you can't get amino acids from a vegan diet and had to buy lots of supplements. For example I dry roast Pumpkin seeds, Sunflower seeds and Sesame seeds together then add a little soy sauce (only takes two minutes) and that combination gives you ALL the amino acids the body needs. I've been a Vegan since mid 1974 and never had any problem at all. Very good health. Of course there will always be some people who change their diet to quickly and eat the wrong combination of foods. It's better to refrain from high processed foods and that includes meat eaters, plus any food high in sugar. I never add any sugar or salt to food as you get enough naturally from a good combination of food. It can take people a longtime for there body to adjust when changing from a meat based diet. I would recommend gradually going onto a vegetarian diet then gradually switching to a vegan diet. A note of caution, be very careful what others say, ALWAYS! do plenty research yourself. Just because one person says Vegan diet is bad or good for you means nothing. Also, there are many Americans and some British who claim to be doctors when in fact they just bought a fake certificate stating they are a doctor of... without doing any medical training or exams.

Cultured meat is a potential vegan get around, have a look at ANIC if that interests you. M&S offering Vegan meals is on point, people just wanting to watch what they eat will be eyeing up these meals too as they are seen to be healthy.

Times today.. tuesday market report 'Investors flee M&S amid fears of declining footfall' Morgan Stanley cut Marks & Spencer, the high-street stalwart, to “equal weight”. The analysts like a few things about the company: its latest results were “solid”; recent profit guidance from management was a bit better than the City had expected; and the company should do well as jabbed-up shoppers return to the high street.

I suggest you watch the following videos: Https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=dangers+of+eating+meat+and+dairy Veganism is by far much better for your health, providing you have a balanced diet containing all the vitamins & minerals the body and brain needs. Only Vitamin B12 plus recent research shows that both meat eaters and Vegans etc., need to take daily Vitamin D3 even in sunny climates. Well worth watching videos with Dr Michael Greger who is the Physician, bestselling author, and speaker who advocates a plant-based, whole foods diet to reverse and prevent, fatal disease and illness.

The great British banger and the EU's porky piesThe falling safety standards of imported EU food versus Aussie beef and US chicken?© Brexit Facts4EU.Org 2021Latest EU rules mean the pork they export to the UK contains "abscesses, pus and TB material", say EU's own safety inspectorsIn recent weeks the National Farmers' Union and others have been gaining significant media coverage in their outrage over the possibility that Brexit Britain might in the future import more of its food from countries such as Australia, New Zealand, and the United States.One of their key arguments relates to food safety. They claim that the British consumer will be inundated with unsafe meat. Facts4EU.Org has therefore looked at the EU's recent lowering of safety standards for the far higher quantities of imported meat from the EU which we have been eating for years.If the EU wants to portray itself as a responsible regulator of food safety standards, it might be thought that they would be strengthening food safety regulations in order to protect the public, not rowing back on them. Not so, according to the European Working Community for Food Inspection and Consumer Protection (EFWFC) which represents the EU's meat inspectors.The EU has actually lowered its food safety requirements"Consumers are being exposed to an "avoidable risk" of disease after a reduction of official controls in food inspections of pig and poultry carcasses across the EU. Diseased meat is being eaten by consumers in the UK and EU, including pus from abscesses and tuberculosis lesions from pigs' heads."- The European Working Community for Food Inspection and Consumer Protection (EFWFC), 15 Sept 2020The EU has introduced new measures for checking pigs entering the food chain. This reduced the requirement for checking pig meat from a thorough inspection to a visual-only inspection. A visual-only inspection misses underlying diseases. In the words of Ron Spellman, the Deputy Secretary of the European Working Community for Food Inspection and Consumer Protection (EFWFC) which represents EU meat inspectors:-"Inspectors stopped cutting lymph nodes in pigs' heads, which are known to contain abscesses and tuberculosis lesions. Under previous systems, the pigs' head would have been rejected for food, but now the meat is minced to make sausages and meat pies, spreading the pus from the abscesses and TB material throughout these products.""I don't think you can prove it's safe to feed people abscesses, pus and TB material."Mr Spelman also speculated on the reasons for the EU's reduction in its food safety requirements:"These changes are motivated not by science or a desire to protect the consumer but are politically motivated to give the [EU] meat industry what they want: the reductions and eventual removal of official independent meat inspection."BREXIT FACTS4EU.ORG SUMMARYEU27's meat related exports to the UK in 2020UK's imports of EU27 beef : £1.2 billionUK's imports of EU27 pork : £2.3 billionUK's imports of EU27 poultry : £1.5 billionUK's imports of EU27 lamb : £0.1 billionUK's imports of EU27 dairy : £2.5 billionTotal : £7.6 billion of meat-related imports from the EU in 2020Source: European Commission Agridata for 2020.We are eating EU27 meatEvery year in the UK around eight million pigs are slaughtered for meat and the UK also imports pork meat from EU27 countries, partly because of British consumers' preference for certain cuts such as pork chops. Meat from pigs' heads is recovered by specialised boning plants and goes into pies, sausages and other processed foods. Millions of us consume this meat many times each year.?The UK's farming sector rears millions of animals of all kinds for meat consumption, but the British consumer still eats over a quarter of this meat from the EU27 countries, and from further afield. According to the British Meat Processors Association, the pro-EU trade body:-"Popular cuts of meat still need to be imported to meet the UK's needs. Meat processing companies rely on imports for 26% of their supply, with the rest coming from UK farms."The size of the food safety problemWe looked at the Food Standards Agency's (FSA) report from January of last year. Here is what they said about 'foodborne diseases' - which most people would refer to as 'food poisoning':-"We estimate that there were 2.4 million cases of foodborne disease in the UK in 2018, with 222,000 GP presentations and 16,400 hospital admissions."- "Foodborne Disease Estimates for the United Kingdom in 2018", FSA Report Jan 2020By any measure this effect on public health from 2.4 million cases of 'foodborne diseases' in one year is highly significant.So what does the EU Commission have to say about all of this?The EU Commission's justification for the reduction in meat inspections is that the cutting up of pig carcasses as part of meat inspections increases the risk of harmful bacteria spreading onto meat.A spokesperson for the European commission said: "Any meat with lesions indicating an animal disease such as TB, or abscesses, or any pathological or organoleptic changes, must be considered as unfit for human consumption and not be placed on the market."The meat inspectors would doubtless agree with these worthy sentiments. However the problem as they see it is that the EU has reduced its safety requirements and ordered visual-only inspections of pigs. As the European Working Community for Food Inspection and Consumer Protection says: "There's no way to see those little abscesses, little tuberculosis lesions, without cutting those lymph nodes."OBSERVATIONSIn the case of food safety standards above it seems that the EU claims one thing and does another."You are what you eat", as the saying goes. If that is the case then we are now worried about all the barbecued pork sausages we would normally consume over the summer. And we will never look at a pork pie in quite the same way again.
