Farmers can now get in place systems which work. If the government does not get things right at first, which it clearly has not, with the right advise things can change quite quickly. This is currently obvious as Net Zero and the green lobby are being kicked into the long grass with the realisation that home produced energy and food must take precedence.
To bounce Britain back into the EU single market, in preparation for a rejoining campaign, is sheer madness.
False stories are being pushed by Remainers and parts of the media here and abroad, that the UK has underperformed financially since the referendum. As Ambrose Evans-Pritchard explains, this fake narrative is being weaponised by the pro-Brussels establishment.
False headlines go unchallenged, implying that the pound is spiraling into crises becoming an emerging market currency. The Bank of England’s sterling exchange rate index has actually risen slightly over the past five years. Contrary to the story being peddled that our economy did particularly badly during the pandemic which coincided with Brexit, the opposite is true.
GDP was 0.7pc above pre-pandemic levels at the end of the first quarter, compared with 0.3pc in France, zero in Italy, minus 0.6pc in Japan, and minus 0.9pc in Germany.
Jobs have continued to grow in the City of London, but the OECD forecast the UK would trail in bottom place as the developed world recovered last year. In fact, the UK was the G7’s star performer with growth at 7.4pc, against 2.8pc in Germany, and 1.6pc in Japan.
Why do they get it so wrong? Another fine example of rubbishing the UK comes from the British Council, which should be promoting the UK.
This public body established in 1934 to promote Britain overseas, has a budget of £1.2 billion a year and employs 7,000 people. Instead of endorsing the UK, as Toby Young explains, it has succumbed to the anti-patriotic self-loathing, so prevalent among the Brexit-hating metropolitan elite.
Instead of celebrating the pinnacles of British culture like the plays of Shakespeare and the music of Elgar, it has he says become ‘infected by the repudiation of one’s own culture and glorification of others’. Recently it has included the UK on a list of countries blighted by ‘extreme and violent’ racial tension, civil disturbance, and genocide. Really? How dare they.
If this country is such a dangerous dump, one must ask why migrants risk their lives to get here.
Despite the doom and gloom peddled the by the anti-Boris, anti-Brexit squad , it is encouraging to hear that arable farming has entered a golden era in which making a loss should be difficult!
