    Default Government insists US trade deal won't lower food standards for UK

    4 Promise : We will deliver a strong NHS.


    Reality : Waiting times have soared, A&E is in meltdown and medics were forced to strike.


    5 Promise : We will cut net migration to below 100,000 people a year.


    Reality : Migration is running at 273,000 a year.Government insists US trade deal won't lower food standards for UK - BBC News

    I'd make a list of other promises this government said they not break but we're limited to only 10,000 characters per post.

    Oh go on, here's a few

    Promise : We will balance the books by 2017 and then run a budget surplus.


    Reality : The deficit is still £50billion a year and will not even be closed by 2020.

    2 Promise: We will not increase VAT, Income Tax or National Insurance Contributions.


    Reality : Chancellor hiked NICs in first Budget before being shamed into a U-turn a week later.


    3 Promise : We will work to end child poverty.


    Reality : Child poverty is on the rise and forecast to get even worse when new welfare cuts kick in.

    I'm looking forward to not paying 8 quid a box for Reeses Puffs anymore because I have to subsidise a bunch of fat French farmers can't grow food economically.

    "lower food standards"

    Honestly?

    The UK allowed brains to be mixed in with cattle feed and people got creutzfeldt jakob. We had to burn half the cows in the country with foot and mouth then we got told everyone was eating horse.

    Food standards are one thing. Food quality is another.

    That was 20 years ago. Now the UK has the best beef in the world.
    And it was pretty good beef 20 years ago, if you didn't mind the risk of disease.

    In the UK there are only 100 salmonella cases per year, in the US there are 1.2 million cases.



    Once the UK food standards drop you will probably get salmonella at some point

    I'm alright Jack
