Aye and what’s the point of making deals with Australian farmers which are to the detriment of farmers here? Much of Brexit was supposed to be about self-sufficiency and looking after ‘our own’. Yet now we see the Tories doing deals with Oz ‘wellies’ over cheap beef and lamb to undercut the British stuff.
And then there’s food miles. The idea of shipping meat and other products half way round the world when they’re already produced here is also to the detriment of the government’s so-called green credentials. It further illustrates not only Tory hypocrisy but how desperate they are to sign trade deals for political window-dressing.
