Really, public ignorance and the EU, who would have thought that'd be a thing. Incidentally how much rat hair in your paprika do you find acceptable, are you fine maggots in your orange juice?

Well Vegetarians and Vegans are out to destroy it anyway.



His argument was that it isn't big enough from a Treasury point of view to get special status.

In his controversial comments, he also suggests farmers should not be given tax breaks denied to other industries.
...
He wrote: 'Food sector isn't critically important to the UK, and ag[riculture] and fish production certainly isn't'. He pointed to figures suggesting that it adds just 0.5 per cent in extra value to the economy.
Dr Leunig then questioned the special tax breaks given to farmers, saying: 'We know that supermarkets also make very little, and that lots of restaurants go bust.

Don't know how you work that out, we all have to eat something. Up to farmers to adapt to what the public wants, same as any other industry.

We work it out by listening to the drivel about meat production destroying the planet,the public want's meat on the table.only a minority follow the vegan fad and after watching two idiots cooking vegan food on tv i doubt they will have a long life expectancy, it's all chemicals and artificial muck.
ANY hoo enjoy your carrot pie and cabbage water gravy.

Let everybody eat what they want ? Doesn't really affect you? Personally I love my cheese, so veganism isn't for me, but I don't despise anybody that chooses to do differently.

And the fishing sector is a tiny sub-sector of that but we still seem to be basing our entire business strategy around that at the expense of manufacturing and services.

The fishing sector may be small at this time but you need to look into the future possibilities of this once great industry,there are a lot of fish in our waters.

"Overnight" you would still have a lot of animals alive and requiring everything that goes with it. Fishing can't exactly be replaced, not all land is suitable for growing crops, not all crops are that suitable for the UK, eg Soya, and look what happens to crops when the weather is too dry or wet or hot or cold.

People are allowed to eat what they want as what give you the right to be judgemental about those who don't consume meat.

What gives you the right to be judgmental against me, is it perhaps freedom of speech

Freedom of speech isn't simply a matter of somebody saying something. It is what are the consequences of speaking out, inhibition of speaking out because of the fear of those consequences, and being brainwashed into thinking that X is the only acceptable opinion.

This Leunig geezer is a Lib Dem if you Google him. What a looney thing for him to come out with. Economic output needs food for the outputting people.
