Anyone remember a few years ago, dairy farmers saying it was cheaper for them to pour milk down the drain than sell it to supermarkets at the prices they were willing to pay?

Look around your local area, are the smaller butchers struggling? I bet they're not.
I think you're right. But there are problems. Lamb chops in the local butcher are £21.99/kg; M&S £17.99/kg; Waitrose similar to M&S at the butcher's counter, £15.99/kg pre-packaged. Price can become an issue due t the Guvmin's unbalanced assault on take-home income.

Re: Britain outside the EU

. . . and the reason they're cheaper at a supermarket is?


If you were a supplier of meat products (farmer) and could get £30 for a pig at a supermarket (£1 profit), or £35 for the same pig to a local butcher (£6 profit), who would you sell to?

But the local only wants 10 pigs, so the other 1000 go to the supermarkets at the cheaper price . . . or get culled if the supermarket price drops to £28 per pig (£1 loss)

So, how can the UK utilise what you've pointed out in terms of the NI Protocol?


---------- Post added at 22:20 ---------- Previous post was at 22:07 ----------

That perfidious Varadkar is at it again, forcefully telling the world that by making a trade deal with the UK other countries are treating with a nation that cannot be trusted to keep to the deal.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-58898117

Is the Tanasty the enemy or what? He'll be the Irish Teashop in January 2023 when he gets his stint.

I can see the two particular Remainers mulling over whether or not to say he's right because the UK government is not keeping to its international obligations in respect of Brexit agreements.

Gollum Cummings said today that the UK always planned to ditch the NI Protocol anyway, if he's proven to be telling the truth heads need to roll imo

The NI Protocol was only in the event of absence of a deal with the UK as a whole. In theory if the EU was ever intending on acting in good faith, it wouldn't never have been needed in the first place, which it wasn't whatever way you look at things.

There was never going to be a mass movement of items not approved by the EU from GB to the EU via NI. Even if there was, there is nothing illegal about that.
Ireland depends heavily on goods coming from or through the UK.

The EU has released its plan for a reduction of post-Brexit checks on goods and medicines arriving into Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK.


...
The new plan, which seeks to calm a long-running dispute over a key part of the Brexit agreement, would remove about 80% of spot checks, the EU said.

So that's doing Ireland more of a favour than GB or NI. Why didn't the EU agree to that in the first place?

Bit confused by this. The EU wants to protect its' Single Market and Ireland has not intention of leaving the EU any time soon so there were three options - closing the border between the Republic and Northern Ireland, threatening the Good Friday Agreement, the whole of the UK staying in the Single Market or having the North stay in the Single Market.

Options 1 and 2 were no go due to either international or internal relations so option 3 was the only one. I am not sure why you think there's no risk of non-EU approved goods crossing the border in to the EU if there is essentially no border. Bringing goods in to a country where they are prohibited is certainly illegal, it's called smuggling

NI is not part of the EU single market, but as the NI protocol specifies, IS part of the UK single market.
Non-approved doesn't mean illegal. EU states can legally produce non-approved items, just as long as they don't market them etc within the EU. Small amounts of goods will always move across ANY border. There just wouldn't be the shipping of large quantities of non-approved goods from the UK into the EU via NI. Even then it would be an issue for the EU alone, just as it is for every other country on the planet. EG Chinese producers sometimes can and DO ship non-approved items into the EU and UK. Nothing new about that. Then again EU countries sometimes can and DO ship non-approved items to other EU countries and the UK. There simply was no justification for imposing restrictions on moving items between GB and NI.

The industry’s other concern is that any regulatory divergence between Ireland and a post-Brexit Britain may see manufacturers pull out of the Irish market if it deems the cost of doing business here too prohibitive.
Ireland has had access to the pharma market by piggybacking on the UK. Having some 60m people next door who speak the same language has been beneficial,” said Mr Connolly.
“If manufacturers have to produce different batches, or packaging, or marketing material for Ireland and that drives up costs, they might decide not to bother if they think it won’t pay them to do it.”
Irish farmers used to prefer to buy their seed potatoes from the UK, as they were better quality and less disease-ridden than those from the EU.

As of 1 January 2021, the UK has left the EU single market and customs union, and its relationship with the EU is governed by the Withdrawal Agreement, and the Trade and Cooperation Agreement.

I see the first part has been covered but on your point about non-EU products entering the EU, this is only done under very specific controlled circumstances. The non-approved products can only enter the EU to be further processed in to an approved state or held at specific auditable locations. There is a lot of paperwork involved at the port of entry.

The company I work for makes non-approved machinery for shipment to the US. Even the simple act of moving it from the factory to the shipper and onwards to the airport or port is riddled with difficulty.

In the case here, the port of entry in to the Single Market is where the goods are offloaded in Northern Ireland, not at the Northern Ireland/Republic of Ireland border
