Re: About Time

Don't like power? How about food. 30% of food consumed in the UK is imported from Europe. Food imported from outside Europe makes up 19%.

99% of spinach is imported from the EU

93% of aubergines are imported from the EU

92% of peaches, nectarines and apricots

70% of tomatoes from the EU (9% from outside the EU, the rest UK grown)

and of course, 98% of lamb is exported to the EU. Byebye, welsh hillfarming! You have been deemed an obstruction of the one true ideology, and are therefore to be obliterated.
