    Lobster (and chips) dividend!

    (not quite sure why gammon is not on the menu)



    *We will thrive on toast and chips also.
    **WOOOAOAHHHH Tea might be delayed. WTF? I thought we had tulip loads and had innovative strategies for it.
    *** Home grown beer is on the menu!

    60% of pork consumed in the UK is imported from mainly Denmark, Germany and The Netherlands.
    Gammons will have to pay extra for British reared gammon
    This is what they knowingly voted for.

      It mentions "home grown beer" - a lot of the beer yeast is imported, as is the wine and champagne yeast.
      I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.

        Doesn't toast need imported hard wheat?

          There is an obvious source of gammon meat...

            Also the "gallon of milk per person per week" isn't exactly the full fact.
            The UK may produce that much milk ( How much milk is produced in Britain? ), but some gets converted to butter, some to cream, some to cheese.

            1 gallon of milk would make less than 1/4lb of butter. (for those born after WWII, about 5l of Friesian milk is required for 250g of butter)
            Cheese has a better return - around 10% - so 5l of milk for 500g of cheese.

              Mostly old stock though.
              Scoots still says that Apr 2020 didn't mark the start of a new stock bull market.

                Bananas not from EU (Caribbean and South America)

                Pizza Wheat can be grown in the UK (Heritage Blend Artisan Pizza Flour)
                Purple broccoli is and can be grown in the winter (Purple Sprouting Broccoli Is A Winter Crop Worth Growing - Hobby Farms)
                Tomatoes can be imported from North African countries for example.
                Ham can be produced easily in the UK.
                Wine can be sourced from UK, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina, USA, South Africa, etc.

                Apart from that it is spot on.

                  And we should stop all meat and diary in the UK anyway.
