Re: EU Food Standards

Typical - putting profit before health issues. They can't compete on the world stage, so they want to cut corners and potentially put lives at risk. What were the Remoaners saying about chlorinated chicken?


Sorry Bread. As an aside, and I don't want to disrupt your thread, but I saw this at the bottom of the article and damn near soiled myself...

"… we have a small favour to ask. Since we started publishing 200 years ago, tens of millions have placed their trust in the Guardian’s high-impact journalism, turning to us in moments of crisis, uncertainty, solidarity and hope. More than 1.5 million readers in 180 countries have recently taken the step to support us financially – keeping us open to all and fiercely independent.

With no shareholders or billionaire owner, we can set our own agenda and provide trustworthy journalism that’s free from commercial and political influence"

Funniest thing I've read in ages.

I really couldn't believe my eyes when I read that comment about being trustworthy and free of political influence.

Re: EU Food Standards

The EU are diverging from UK food standards. Regulatory alignment is no longer possible.

Re: EU Food Standards

They have no cause to accuse other countries of low standards, have you seen some of the markets in France and Spain?
