    Chlorinated Chickens are OK

    Brexit: Liam Fox says 'no objection' to people eating chlorinated chicken | The Independent

    Definitely a concession we can make so that we can also buy their gr8 cars as well.

      The big political hitters have weighed in now as well. Weatherspoons are advertising on their beer mats how they will save a lot of money when we leave the EU because there will be no tariffs on buying from outside the EU.
      ...but Weatherspoons menus claim that most of their food comes from the UK, so what they are saying is they will be able to save money by stopping buying UK produced food and supporting UK suppliers by switching to buying the cheapest they can find, regardless of quality, ethics, environmental impact or the UK economy.
      I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.
      Hands... out infractions

        They said it would be cheaper for UK consumers to buy in shops.

          From their manifesto on their website:
          "Wetherspoon argues that this will result in a reduction in food prices in shops and pubs."

          And also on their website...
          Tim Martin – ‘Wetherspoon food costs will go down if we opt for unilateral free trade’

            Fair point, I read an article in a newspaper (Mirror) that just said uk consumers and shops.

            The example that they give though, was for cheaper wine. I'm guessing that the meals are subsidised by the drinks. Perhaps the fish will be cheaper.

            But I bow to your superior knowledge of Wetherspoons food.

              We calculate that our own cost prices will reduce by 1.5 pence per pint or meal sold, on average,
              definitely worth going through that upheaval

                When do we see Liam force feed his child chlorinated chicken to prove it's OK?

                  Seeing as Martin is a rabid Brexiteer, it would be good to see what that 1.5p comes out at, having corrected for optimism bias, and how he would see the collapse of sterling as impacting on costs.

                    But... The EU imposes tariffs on imports of food stuffs. The UK will likely charge the same tariff. I've no idea where the idea that imports of food from outside the UK will be zero tariff has come from?

                    In regards to Lamb, for example:

                    "Of EU Member States, the UK is by far the largest importer from the global market. Any sheep meat imports outside quota or from countries not covered by it, are subject to ad valorem tariffs of 12.8%, plus a fixed amount ranging from €902 to €3118 per tonne, depending on the cut."
