But to get back on topic, british export of milk and cream is down 96%, so better start taking milk or the farmers can flush it down the drain.
No it isn't, Solly.

Your OP discusses what happened in January and to a degree February.
We are now rapidly approaching May.
Things have undoubtely changed since the beginning of the year.
That's why UK business is doing so well and is full of optimism.
That's why our growth forecast for this year is widely-expected to be the largest in 80 years and the next few years are also way ahead of our rivals.

If milk & cream exports are being hampered by Brexit it's not having very much impact on our economy as a whole, is it?

It also discussed meat, but let's not quibble, I'm not as good at that as you. Apparently according to you jacob rees mogg was wrong when he stated the effects of brexit would be visible after 50 years?

You will now either substantiate that statement by providing a link complete with reference to exactly where and when I'm supposed to have said that or accept my calling you out for being dishonest?

If you were so sure of your stance you would have no need for such dishonesty.

You're admitting you can't then because none of what you say there relates to anything I have said about JRM as you falsely claimed.
You have just proven and in effect admitted that you're being deliberately dishonest in this forum.



ETA:
FWIW JRM used the word "could".
Not "will".
You're wrong with that too, Solly.

Flushing milk down the drain because of EU incompetence is nothing new.

We all remember the EU's wine lakes and butter mountains.

Re: Luckily the brits take their tea with cream

Mmm, seems imports are down too, seems a lose lose situation to me for businesses in both camps over the politicians petty spite.

This has always been the problem with the EU, the political project is sacrosanct and the population is just cannon fodder, but at least we saw sense and left thank goodness.

The EU really is looking quite ever more childish these days...
