I do buy local but there are things we cant or dont grow and citrus is one of those so as i dislike the EU with a passion it's the lesser of two evils. And remember at the moment the hedgerows are full of good food my jam pan is working overtime and the freezer has twelve months of stewed apples and blackberries all i need is a drop of custard for a great pudding.

I thought you liked to buy local produce? Southern europe (as we are talking about citrus fruit) is a lot nearer to the UK than South Africa and if the price is the same it makes sense to me to buy the produce that has travelled fewer miles in order to get here. The link that Leatash posted above is about possible civil unrest in the event of food, medicinal and other shortages post Brexit, ...

From what I have read in order for the UK to become more self sufficient with regard to food production (please note not totally self sufficient) we would all have to eat less meat.

On the subject of eating ...

Back to basics food is the way forward meat and veg thats all you need for a healthy diet, but remember we can also impose high tariffs on ...

"Food prices could rise sharply and farming businesses could be wiped out at the end of a Brexit transition period, a House of Commons committee has warned. dairy, sheep and cereals would be hit hardest by tariffs on the export front. Sheep farmers could be “devastated”, with farmers in Wales and Northern Ireland who export about 90% of their lamb products unlikely to survive a 50% tariff. ...

I think our Westminster politicians have just become lazy after having the EU increasingly make more of our laws over the last four decades.  Once we are out they will have to get used to working again.

"The impact of EU law varies from sector to sector. In many areas - public order, crime, defence, health - EU laws have minimal impact. But in others - workers' rights, trade - the impact is much greater because the single market and the free movement of workers are at the heart of what the EU is about. The way we organise our NHS is not." From: ...
