Interesting...

I could fill a whole terabite of data- of money wasted in the NHS from ministers/managers of both Labour and Conservative.

Putting our lives at risk? Covid -19 is a flu like virus. It kills some people,like all viruses.

Living in Scotland, BOJO is out shone by 'Queen of Scotland'- Ms Sturgeon.

I like to keep it real.

Sturgeon hasn't impressed the Shetland Islands, it seems.
No-one here believes the parents were directly involved in MM's disappearance because belief without evidence is useless.

....As in Boris trying to protect UK interests during Brexit negotiations while Labour & SNP want to bow down & submit to the EU?

Well youíve certainly drank the Koolaid.

In what way is he protecting the U.K. and does that mean that he couldnít care less about the union when he lauded the WA as a Ďfantastic dealí ?

Or Orkney!

She will be ousted at next election. People are not in the mood for indyref2 and the  anti English hate crimes being manifested by her and her ilk.

Scotland to get new hate crime bill-  it is so spiteful and anti democratic just like the left marxist agenda we have all come to see through!

Millions to be wasted spent on conscious bias training. Copying the Chinese with regards to the Muslim 'problem' detaining them to deprogram them.  OH Here come the head Fux people with their smart board and team times/Zoom presentations.

Well?  What should he do next, critics?
ďwe have carried out a very serious investigation and there is no indication whatsoever Madeleine McCann's parents are linked to her disappearanceĒ - Hans Christian Wolters, German Prosecutor..

ďConspiracy theories exhibit a strong obsession with detail, often taking the form of highlighting a tiny piece of evidence and blowing it up out of all proportion, buttressing their claims with a display of pseudo-scholarship.  When they examine the real evidence, conspiracy theorists do not accept that minor inconsistencies come from mistakes in reporting.Ē Sir Richard J Evans, author and historian

Agriculture bill: Bid to protect post-Brexit food standards rejected



MPs have rejected the latest attempt to require imported food to meet domestic legal standards from 1 January.

They struck down a Lords amendment to the Agriculture Bill to force trade deals to meet UK animal welfare and food safety rules.

Campaigners have warned the UK could be forced to accept lower standards to secure a future US trade deal.

But Farming minister Victoria Prentis said the government was "absolutely committed to high standards".

Existing laws would safeguard them, she told the House of Commons, adding that these were "of more use than warm words" in maintaining animal welfare, food standards and environmental protections.

The bill - designed to prepare the farming industry for when the UK no longer has to follow EU laws and rules next year - returned to the Commons on Monday following amendments by the House of Lords.

The government says EU rules banning imports of chlorine-washed chicken and other products will be automatically written into UK law once the post-Brexit transition period ends on 31 December.

But peers made a number of changes, including one which would give MPs a veto over sections in trade deals relating to food imports, which would be required to comply with "relevant domestic standards".

They argued these changes were necessary to make it impossible for the US or other countries to export so-called chlorinated chicken or beef fattened with hormones.

However, MPs voted by 332 votes to 279 - a majority 53 - to back government plans to reject the amendment.

However, Conservative MPs Sir Roger Gale and George Freeman said they would vote for the amendment to remain in the bill, saying it was in line with their party's 2019 manifesto pledge to maintain welfare standards.

Neil Parish, the Conservative chairman of the Commons Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Select Committee, told the Commons that Brexit meant UK agriculture could move in a "much more environmental direction", including planting more trees and cutting the use of nitrates.

The country should be a "beacon" of high animal welfare and countryside-protection standards, he added.

But Conservative MP John Lamont supported the government, saying the amendments were "not in the interests" of food producers or standards and would be "bad for trade".

Party colleague Anthony Mangnall said there had been a "huge amount of fear-mongering" over the importation of chlorinated chicken and hormone-injected beef, and that "has to stop".
'Back British farmers'

In the Commons, Liberal Democrat environment spokesman Tim Farron said the controversy over chlorinated chicken was not "about the quality of food" but the "integrity of our farming industry".

For Labour, shadow environment secretary Luke Pollard said this was a "crucial moment for British agriculture", adding that high standards could all be "thrown away".

He urged the government to "show some leadership" and "back British farmers".

The bill must include guarantees that UK farmers would not be "undercut" in post-Brexit trade deals, Mr Pollard said.

However another potential rebellion by backbench Tory MPs was avoided by the government when the deputy speaker ruled out an amendment to strengthen the new Trade and Agriculture Commission.

Good god this is a no brainier (pun intended).  We have been infiltrated with 'dodgy Irish beef' illegal meats infiltrated our food chain from all over the world, kidding yourselves about high quality. Maybe in Scotland using Scottish beef reared and slaughtered here. And in some English farms.

The chlorinated chicken will be marked and it will be choice no one will make it a law you have to buy it.

calm down carnivores.
