One problem/benefit with posting as AC is that people are not sure if contradictory statements come from the same person:
"The entire purpose of Brexit is not to have EU decide for UK and certainly not to have the US doing it either."
"the EU permitted azo colouring in food"
"I'm one of those people that don't see any need to change them [EU food and safety standards] at all"
So you want to keep EU food and safety standards as is with azo colouring, not let the EU decide for the UK and remove the UK's influence when setting EU food and safety standards. Next time there is an election or referendum, you can indicate your preference for contradictory proposals by ticking all the options.
