      Nope, still confused. Although it seems if we stay in the EU, wee krankie Sturgeon will get her arse slapped. And something to do with apples, and disabled people on see-saws.

        Yep, I wasn't expecting you to understand it even with a draw...

          No, I'll admit, complete gibberish is somewhat of a struggle.

            This is where the UK gets its poultry from. Is it big enough enough for you?

            I'm afraid the the poultry we get from Thailand and Brasil comes through the Netherlands. Please do more research.

              Presumably shipped in, then transferred to road vehicles to get to the U.K.?

                Them chickens are more well travelled than Quitlings. Why not leave out the fact this only makes up for less than 1% of all imported poultry.

                We're not interested in niches to suit your agenda, whatever that is.

                  As it happens, we're no more interested in niches that suit your agenda either. And a threesome with krankie Sturgeon doesn't count as an agenda, you need to file that one under "very sick fantasy".

                    You're the one who mentioned it.

                      I have no idea. Scoots was asserting that it'd be mad to import chicken from such a faraway place as the US, and I was saying that a huge amount of the EU's (including the UK's) chicken already comes from Brasil and Thailand, i.e. faraway. This was the entirety of the point I was trying to make. EDIT: Apparently very poorly.

                      I was wrong to suggest that food standards in Brasil and Thailand are worse than the US or Europe, as has already been pointed out.
