The cost-cutting zeal of the big chains is threatening our farmers\’ livelihoods
And the zeal of consumers for cheap furniture is threatening cabinet makers\’ livelihoods and the zeal of the consumer for cheap cars is threatening motor industry workers\’ livelihoods and the zeal of the consumer for cheap clothing has entirely wiped out the livelihoods of hand weavers and spinners.
So? This is the way the whole damn system is supposed to work. You as a producer continue to innovate and make your product cheaper or we the consumer will go elsewhere and you go bust.
This is the very point of the whole set up. It\’s for consumers, not producers.
Sadly, even the right who are normally so clear eyed on such matters roll over to have their tummy tickled at the sight of a sturdy English Yeoman.
Fuck \’em. Food has been getting cheaper since Neolithic times, it\’s the very process that makes civilisation itself possible.
