    Labour has a clear message, a 4 day week, no student debt, no chlorinated chicken, and pain killers will still be available on the NHS.

    This is an effective sales pitch.

    This is my favourite Labour message:

    "Maggots and rat hair in your food"

    Brexit Trump trade deal risks food contaminated with maggots and rat hair - Business Insider Deutschland

    shut your eyes and think of the profits for US billionaires

    a price worth paying

    The Three-Day Week was one of several measures introduced in the United Kingdom by the Conservative government to conserve electricity,

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Legislation | Food Safety

    In the EU there are no allowable limits for foreign bodies in food products. In the USA there are and when those limits found to have been exceed then action is taken. Which do you think is the safest policy?

    Do you think there is no foreign body contamination in your EU food?

    UK legislation, commencing with the Food Safety Act 1990 and continuing through the General Food Regulations 2004, introduced and maintain the concept of ‘due diligence’ which allows a manufacturer or seller to claim that, whilst the foreign body is present in the product, they have done as much as is ‘reasonably practicable’ to prevent the contamination.
    European legislation requires that food complies with various hygiene regulations specifying that food must be safe. All potential hazards must be eliminated or reduced to an acceptable level.
    In the US, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Regulations on Adulteration involving Hard or Sharp Foreign Objects legislates in this area. The FDA considers that a product is adulterated if it contains a sharp or hard foreign object that measures 7 – 25 mm in length, is ready to eat or requires minimal preparation that would not eliminate or neutralise the hazard prior to consumption. Failure to protect product may lead to prosecution by the regulatory authorities.

    EUR-Lex - l21290 - EN - EUR-Lex

    EU legislation: 178/2002: laying down the general principles and requirements of food law, establishing the European Food Safety Authority and procedures in matters of food safety 852/2004 (and associated regulations): on the hygiene of foodstuffs

    EUR-Lex - 32002R0178 - EN - EUR-Lex

    So the EU turns a blind eye to food safety then. Good job we're leaving.
