What ‘no deal’ BREXIT means for food

It is about time more people realised that food does not appear on our plates by magic. There has been little mention that 30% of UK food comes from the EU, 2.5 millions lorries a year bringing 5m tonnes.

Add to that the effect climate change is already having on food security and then factor in the amount of agricultural land lost to house building and vanity projects like HS2 and it is plain to see that politics is involved.

The truth is we need to prioritise the growing of food and go back to something like a war time attitude where every last square metre of land is cultivated.
