Club Tropicana (CT remix '18)   Let me take you to the place Where membership's Britain's disgrace Blue flag with lots of stars. Where strangers take you by the hand And welcome you

"Class"   From the bloke that brushed off Trophyshy's redundancy with absolutely no compassion. Not to mention that your favourite hobby is logging on here to wind people up about the things

 We're fresh out of fresh food! Supermarket shelves are hit by Brexit port chaos and staff shortages as stores start to run low on fruit and veg

While you'd have to say there's some merit in the principle - given that globalisation trends are a big part of what drives Brexit/right-wing populism, and nowadays there's obviously a strong environmental case for producing as much as possible at home - if what Redwood says had ever been the true aim of Brexit then they'd have started working on this stuff the day after the referendum. Since the beautiful British countryside doesn't appear to have been turned into vast swathes of polytunnels and greenhouses like you see when you travel between cities in the Netherlands, however, I can only assume this to be yet more bullshit to appease gullible fantasists.

It's bullshit. The UK doesn't have the space or climate to be self sufficient in foodstuffs. Makes sense to import from neighbouring countries, not different continents. As for manufacturing, more bullshit. Our domestic market is too small for the complexities of modern supply chains. Plus we have next to no natural resources so have to import raw materials anyway, who pays for that? Being in the EEA gave us a domestic market of 500 million with supply chains spanning countries, we are fucked without that.

 

We've fucked highe end manufacturing and services. We've even managed to fuck up fish. Genius.
