    Is there a shortage? No blackcurrant jam in my local Tesco extra for some time. No straight blackcurrant squash either, only mixed with apple.

    They have been banned as we align ourselves with the stringent US food regulations.

    Well if you vote to send the fruit pickers home the fruit will just rot on the fields.


    Millions of apples left to rot as EU pickers stay away.

    “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.”
