Beef dripping for me. I think there is a shop in Auchterarder that still cooks their fish in chips in animal fat.To get back on topic, I'm hoping our chips will improve when we get back to shallow frying them in lard instead of all this imported GM vegetable oil. And the sooner the better.
When we leave the EU, we can do what we like. The Government will have to decide what the regs are. However if we want to sell ANY food to the EU we will have to stick with EU guidelines. So I guess is depends on who the G'ment want to have FTA (Free Trade Agreement) with. If it's the EU we'll have keep what we've got but no FTA with the US (I guess we just trade with them the way we do now). If we have a FTA with the US we wont be able to sell any food to the EU as the US will insist we lower our food standards so the can flood our market with their foodDoes anyone know if there is no EU deal done that is to do with food standards and our government doesn't make any changes I assume we stay with the EU regs anyway or do we default back to only UK pre EU rules or does the government have to decide exactly what we keep or leave or we default to no rules? I think we must stay with EU rules unless we change them but no idea really.
Where are kinder eggs made though? I bet if they were US made by one of the US food giants the US g'venment would be ok with it. Gun lobbyests and food lobbyests in the US are multibillion dollar, so they get to push the US government aroundtalking about food standards - US doesn't allow sell of Kinder Surprise eggs - if I rememmber right, to dangerous to childre. But they are ok with how they produce their food and easy access to guns. Figure that...
I knew a vote for the conservatives would be a vote for Dominic Cummings. On the subject of post brexit food standards we've never had frinankel in the uk when we were in the EU, can't have even less of nothing (Frinkandel wise) when we leave. I'm waiting to see how duty free is applied before decideing to stock up with my favorite belgians before the end of the transition period or not.Final thought on this post: How many of us got to vote for Dominic Cummings?
There are proposals to reduce farming land by planting co2 soaking trees instead of eating as much meat so maybe we won't have enough to export any way. Pull up the drawbridge.When we leave the EU, we can do what we like. The Government will have to decide what the regs are. However if we want to sell ANY food to the EU we will have to stick with EU guidelines.
I think that we can expect the import of alcohol to follow the normal rules. i.e. For alcohol, that means One litre of Spirits OR Two litres of Fortified Wine; AND Sixteen litres of beer AND four litres of wine........... I'm waiting to see how duty free is applied before decideing to stock up with my favorite belgians before the end of the transition period or not.
As a partially disabled old fart myself (I was relatively fit back in my 60's), the only problems are that the French make wine that is a thousand times better than I can produce myself (I know 'cos I still remember the taste of some of 'em).Crack on with the winemaking Dutto.......
........ a partially disabled old fart that no employer would look twice at.(Roll on my 66th.)
So i guess i aint that bothered anymore.
