    Try sheeps wool grease. It’s great for cracked nipples, apparently.

    If not it is the government so we would have done it anyway.

    What was it you feckwits used to trot out when you didn't understand statistics oh yes.

    I assumed you had read it in a cracker as you obviously don't understand it.

    If you see a correlation you dig deeper, not emit a series of brain farts that supports your ignorance.
    The EU CAP had a direct and beneficial effect on the numbers of sheep in the UK.
    Your homework is to find out why - try using a 6 year old if you're incapable.

    Anyhoo, I don't suppose a bottom-feeding tea-maker to the immigrant IT talent like you knows much about sheep farming.
    Neither do I, so when the farmers have a moan I suppose they know summat of what they're about and now realise they've made a silly mistake.
    They won't be the only ones.
    Hard Brexit now!

    The CAP is to pay for land owning it does little for sheep farming. Obviously the LSE are cretins as well.


    It would be hard to make a new British agricultural policy worse than the CAP, short of reverting to the subsidising production directly, which created the notorious wine lakes and butter mountains of the past.

    There are several options for reform because of Brexit. Discounting reverting to more of the same, the first option is to shift some of the subsidy from paying to own land towards more spending on the environment – i.e. shifting the balance from Pillar I to Pillar II.
    LSE BREXIT – Britain’s farmers get £3bn a year from the inefficient CAP. That has to change

    The only thing EU seems to have done is formed sheepnet (which sounds like a welsh porn site) in 2016.

    Do please support your arguments with references. Or just talk out of your biggest orifice as usual.

    How could the UK be self sufficient? During my fly by visit down south I could not help notice the number of overweight folk. Not a sight I’m used to.

    You lot need to get out more.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Jeez even by your standards that's muppetry of the first order.
    Where do you think sheep graze? Do you think the farmers keep them in their living rooms and feed them steak?
    You need to get out of Slough occasionally.
    Hard Brexit now!

    I hate to break it to you, but having the CAP removed and not replaced by U.K. government funding is one of the things the Brexit-supporting farmers are complaining about.

    It shouldn’t really be our problem, and we shouldn’t really care - Brexiters are the ones that lied to them, and the farmers (generally) supported Brexit, so in software terms they’re eating their own dog food.

    I find it really odd though that despite all the bluster it seems to be Remainers that care about the country, while the stock answer from Brexiters is “f*ck them, they should be more efficient anyway”

    How are you going to earn proper hard currency (USD/EUR) to use in buying raw materials and simple things like iPhones?

    US got Saudi market mopped up, UK got nothing to offer really -

    "The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, which uses open sources to measure the quantities of arms exported each year, estimates that, since 2013, around 100 British-made Storm Shadow missiles worth £80m, 2,400 Paveway IV bombs worth £150m, and 1,000 Brimstone missiles worth £100m have been sold to Saudi Arabia."

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...-arabia--yemen

    Wow, around £300 mln over 5 years, one good movie makes more.

    By comparison USA -

    "Between 2011 and 2015, Saudi Arabia was the destination for nearly 10% of all U.S. arms exports.[13] In 2016, the Obama administration proposed a series of arms deals worth $115 billion, including warships, helicopters, and maintenance"
