And Boris has gone back on his word that it's all opening, postponed another 2 weeks! All because he wanted to ingratiate himself with Modi. Clown!!
The trouble is he's ignored the advice or acted too slowly on it so often that he daren't ignore them now after all the trouble we've had.
Personally I can live with a delay as long as they don't take us back to lockdown, we can do almost anything now, just not in the way we would like to do it.

What a ridiculously considered comment. This pandemic is making judgements very tricky. Clearly the economy is important as is folks health so it’s a moving target. Your dislike of this administration and Brexit spills over in many of your posts - sadly

If that was a tricky judgement no wonder the UK is in such a mess.

The Euro makes sense in a large trading area, you know exactly what you are paying without having the vagaries of Forex to worry about. The UK did not join as the thieving [email protected] in the City of London would have lost out on a large potion of their spread rates when exchanging currency, along with the misery they poured on innocent business owners trying to make a living exporting, whilst the said [email protected] played with currency like it was a game of monopoly.
Wrong the UK didn't join because they could see it was a blatant ploy by Germany with the aid of France to increase their competitiveness & allow them to export to the Southern EU countries, without the Euro the strong German Mark & French Franc would make their exports far too dear. There are only a few winners in this Euro exercise & no prizes for guessing who they are!!

You're absolutely right, unfortunately he's the sort of clown that's far more likely to make you cry rather than laugh, he's made the wrong call on virtually every decision he's made & will in future be remembered as such.

Could a ‘Meat Tax’ be on the cards in the UK?

Written by Richard Halleron from Agriland

The latest machination coming from the so-called ‘opinion formers’, who seem to have the ear of government advisors in London, is the introduction of a ‘Meat Tax’ at consumer level.

This approach, it is argued, would have the combined impact of reducing meat consumption levels (I can really see the health benefits coming through now), while also helping to reduce the overall carbon footprint of production agriculture.

What absolute drivel! In my opinion, none of this makes sense at any level. This is a scurrilous and unfounded attack on livestock farming in this part of the world.

Yet, it has to be taken seriously. I make this point because economists at Rothamsted Research have already crunched the numbers where the introduction of a ‘UK...
