CANZuk will never happen😆, my guess is Trudeau would never do it as it would be political suicide, the Liberals are a minority government and there is little to no chance that Justin would overturn the supply management that was set up when his alleged father was PM.😉
The main ones pushing for CANZUK are the ones dreaming of lost empire, I agree it will never happen, NZ Australia and Canada already have closer trade ties through CPTPP, the UK could look at joining that, which would make a lot of sense, instead it looks like they are going for smaller agreements with individual countries.
 
Couldn't give a flying fudge if Aussie stuff is 50p a pack..... It'll only be Welsh or Scottish here even at 10x+ the price,

There are standards and beliefs you follow..... In simple terms... Let me explain. fudge your foreign muck... it may be cheaper... Some fudgewit in the government may think it's a good idea. Here we'll happily stick to Welsh or Scottish thank you please.....
 
Shouldn't it be British Beef?
Depends on what you want... Yes, You should be proud , 10/10 Scunthorpe or Bedford would be English. Not Welsh or Scottish which a numpty would argue as British;
It'll Welsh or Scottish is what we have here. I've found you very good at trying to quote in the past, particularly with Covid posts I've made, but not quite quoting to hit the spot.

Did someone mention a chip?

Don't know what I said about covid?
My point was, with all these trade agreements the UK might want to build a brand to compete. Narrowing it down to Welsh or Scottish, limits you a bit and could cause some confusion.
High quality British Beef as a brand would include more product and save you competing against each other.

You are quite entitled to buy from where you want, you are however making the mistake of assuming imported is “muck” and like many others underestimating your competition, which is fine by me, all the time you are feeling superior the Antipodes and others will continue to take your market share as they have been for years. Happy Days.

Sshhhh, don’t tell them that there is a huge marketing advantage to working together and selling under a brand. Once the get on to that they would be harder to compete with.

:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: I'll be buying Welsh locally or Scottish when we are up at there. Save your Waffle of me assuming imported is muck and underestimating anything. I import an awful lot and of far better quality than I've found a UK Manufacturer to be able to supply. I sell far more stuff into your neck of the woods than I do buy meat...

Apologies, I am not surprised that you find better quality from out side the UK. Perhaps when you referred to “foreign muck” I wrongly assumed that is what you meant.
 

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...
