Food for Thought

 

As this country embarks on its Brexit new dawn, here are some thoughts concerning the Lawn. Though they’re two separate subjects, for some there’s a link, and written below you can see what they think.  So please carry on reading and you’ll see what they mean on the links twixt our Leaving and our town centre green.    

 

Now it makes sense to some that plans should get made just in case things go pear shaped on the issue of trade. For with roughly 50% of the food on our shelves being grown overseas and not by ourselves, it’s very important for future days that we have enough food to feed the UK.  As from the EU to Blighty much food gets imported, it’s really quite crucial this issue gets sorted.  If in post Brexit Britain lorries clog up at Calais, then their fresh food for import may start to decay.  And it goes without saying there’d be a to-do, if this food that we’ve ordered took time to get through.

 

Things like oranges, lemons, grapefruits and limes, aren’t easily grown in our temperate clime (and these fruits that we mention, full of vitamin C, for keeping us healthy have proven quite key). They’re grown further south, where it’s sunny, like Spain, unlike dear old Blighty where it’s so full of rain. And melons and mangoes( if they should get to our shore), due to hold ups and tariffs will surely cost more. So with imports delayed by UK Customs en route, might the following thought be one that takes root?

 

Let’s grow more of our own, let’s get out and dig, let’s show them in Brussels that we don’t give a fig.  No! we’ve not gone bananas, we're really quite sane, so bear with use a mo and let us explain.

 

Now the point that we're making, we hope you can see, concerns our town’s intake of Vitamin C.  So let’s all pull together, let’s roll up our sleeves, let’s grow veg on the Lawn and plant fruit bearing trees. No Brussels of course, no Swedes to be seen, no Romaine(ian) lettuce  et Non! au French beans. We’ll only grow crops coloured red, white or blue and anything foreign will be promptly pooh poohed (and such cherry picked produce might prove very worthwhile should a growing food crisis occur on this isle.) 

 

Now at this stage in Brexit nothing’s for sure, we might end up in clover or be deep in manure. The results we await, those fruits of their labours, of the government’s talks with our EU neighbours.  A peach of a deal might be well worth the money but if things should go pear shaped it won’t be funny. Thus we might find ourselves yet in a bit of a pickle if our imports of food stuffs slow down to a trickle and the price of some produce could go sky high, as we wave to dear neighbours our Brexit  “Bye, Bye” (and just imagine the uproar, the hullabaloo, should our food end up rationed as per World War II.)

 

It’s then our Lawn produce could help keep us in health if, on having left ‘Europe’, we end up with less wealth. Thus our thoughts for the Lawn we hope you’ll think smart, as from our cousins in ‘Europe’ we start to depart.

Although ........on reflection...........and given the amount of rain we've had and how sodden the ground is .....perhaps the Lawn should become a post  Brexit paddy field.

Now one more thought has come to me, as I sit with my fruitcake and nice cup of tea, that the Lawn is the place for a bit of a do where those of one  mind, should they feel so inclined, can blow bushels of rasperries straight at the EU.

Seems I'm not the only one who has thought that the lawn could be used as a communal allotment. I was just doing some research about the playpark on the lawn saga when I came across these two posts.

Why not just dig the whole of the Lawn up and have allotments and use the wonderful bandstand as shed for tools and while they are at it take down all the trees and put black iron railings around the whole lot, of course I'm joking. Who is going to take care of this play ground, who is going to pick up all the rubbish that would be left, we have enough of a litter problem in this town as it is. And while we are at it we would need an ambulance on stand by. And don't forget the legal signage stating using this area is at your own risk. Then of course the nightly vandals will be swinging around leaving glass bottles broken or otherwise.

Now that would attract me to the lawns, an allotment of my own, what a great idea it never crossed my mind, it would certainly work for me. The added benefits of keeping us oldies fit and healthy with all that digging and we could produce enough veg to feed Dawlish.  And of course, the allotment keepers would have the added benefit of eating healthy fresh veg, saving the NHS money and making appointments at the Dr surgery a lot easier... and I am being serious!

If Brexit wasn't enough to cope with in terms of our food supply we have on top of that a potential shortage of home grown goods this year due to 1) the unseasonable snow back in March (killed off a load of new born lambs) and 2) this continuing drought which is causing crops to fail.

 

However. All is not lost.

 

Apparently due to the mediterranean climate this summer the grapes have gone made. Bumper harvest. Lots of English vino next year.  

 

Thus whilst we might have a food shortage there should be plenty of wine. 

 

So that's okay then.

 

Phew!

It’s funny how arch-brexiteer David Davis has been trying to get a deal for two years and failed miserably. 

 

The truth is, despite him being an idiot, Trump (more likely his advisors) was far more worried about the retaliatory tariffs, which have already led to him having to bail out mid-West farmers to the tune of $12bn!!

David Davis has had his hands tied by May and her Remain advisers, she doesn't want to leave the EU, she campaigned for Remain during the referendum campaign.  May is a dead woman walking, she even tried to end the parliamentary session a week early because she was terrified a leadership challenge was moments away.  After the recess comes to an end in September it will also signal the end of her premiership, and we will get a true Brexit-supporting PM.

Most of those "broken promises" apply only to the transition period, and others are mere conjecture.  The article even complains that we will be paying

that is a bad move.

As I understand the situation, there is no appetite amongst the majority of MPs of whatever party for a No Deal scenario.  Some 60 or so Tory MPs are hard Brexiteers but that is all.

Under May's leadership we will never get to a no-deal situation, she is a Remainer and will cravenly accede to every demand from the EU.  That will certainly 

bring about a leadership challenge, but even if we do get a PM with a backbone parliament will veto a no-deal and then we are into general election territory

with the prospect a Corbyn government.

Increasingly over the last 40 years parliament has handed over ever more powers to our rulers in Brussels, and has become just a chamber to rubber-stamp

what the EU dictates.  We have become a vassal state.  Parliament has a mandate to free us from this tyranny, but increasingly looks unlikely to use it.

I remember shortly after the ref, a director of an investment company, telling me it will be the end of the financial prowess as we know it. Well I have not seen any appreciable change since then although there have been some threats that some are going but are still here.

Even if there were a change in the Tory leadership the parliamentary arithmetic would be exactly as it is now.

 

So I agree (blimey pigs will be flying next!) with B/S that we might well be looking at another GE sometime in the near future. That or another referendum.

 

In the meantime here is another food for thought link (which,as ever, is entirely up to individuals to read or not).

Just to prove my earlier point about why people might vote the way they do, Burneside wrote: “with the prospect a Corbyn government.”

 

If they won the next General Election, it would in fact be a Labour government...

Call it what you like, it would still send the country down the plughole.

Corbyn is a communist, the Labour Party has been taken over by the far-left group Momentum, and then there's the little matter of all that anti-semitism in the Labour Party.

A Corbyn government would decimate this country.

Care to back that comment up with some facts Burnside because you sound like a Daily Mail headline. Have you actually read the Labour Party manifesto?

I ask again, have you read the manifesto and what is far-left communism about it.?

 

The anti-semite row is bullshit. far more Jewish groups back Corbyn than oppose him. But the media only interview Jewish people that are against him and never Jewish People that support him.  I don't expect you to watch this informative video about the IHRA document but I'll post the Youtube link anyway....  https://youtu.be/ttmEQbJxQaA

I understand that the government isn't making contingency plans to stockpile food - it believes that is the duty of the food industry.

The food industry say they have not been consulted about such measures by the government and anyway they do not have the capacity to stock pile food.
