Re: Why do you think reducing the amount of trade agreements

"The CAP was set up to help such small farmers survive, and it crippled the abilities of big farms like those in the UK. Whatever else Brexit brings, the end of the CAP rules in the UK can only be good for farmers, who will have some incentive to make the UK self-sufficient, instead of being subsidised not to be and forcing us to import food."

UK trade agreements with countries like the USA and Australia will mean that British farmers will find their farms too small to compete with their competitors' industrial scales and often lower standards.
