Not very free this trade deal

The UK mandate keeps the NHS out of any deal and upholds British standards on food standards and animal welfare, meaning Britain will reject any attempt to sell chlorinated chicken or hormone-fed beef to the UK….

As with all such deals, it’s a list of where we’re not going to have free trade.

  1. Oh no! Not the same chlorinated chicken that 300 million Americans eat regularly and do very well from. Please save us. Someone please think of the children.

    F*cking c*cksucking bureaucrats.

  2. Oh no! Not the same chlorinated chicken that 300 million Americans eat regularly and do very well from

    I hope no bureaucrat here or in the EU gets the idea that washing ready-prepared salads in a chlorine solution should be either allowed or even required…

  3. Hopefully the Yank trade negotiators get these removed. A large percentage of the British ancien regime needs its noses rubbed in a chlorinated chicken supper.

  4. They’re basically wrong un’s. Less wrong ‘uns than Corbyn, that’s for sure, but I think we get v1 of leave the EU/global trade done, then go to war on the Conservative Party. New party of the right that’s small state, anti-woke, pro-freedom that plays the same game as UKIP and threatens to wreck marginal seats if they don’t bend to our demands.

  5. In my limited experience you would have to pry an American’s chicken from his cold head hands.

  6. “meaning Britain will reject any attempt to sell chlorinated chicken or hormone-fed beef to the UK”

    Is that indeed what it means?

    Aside from the obvious that pre-negotiation positioning doesn’t necessarily reflect what will be ultimately agreed, there’s a degree of ambiguity there.

    “We won’t compromise sanitary or animal welfare standards” isn’t the same thing as saying “we won’t buy American food”.

  7. The UK mandate keeps the NHS out of any deal

    That’s fine, as long as the ability for the NHS to buy anything from bed sheets to blood pressure drugs, where it is advantageous for us to, isn’t compromised.

  8. It mentions protecting the price the NHS pays for drugs in any agreement. They don’t seem to consider the possibility of buying drugs cheaper from lowering barriers to trade. Good sign…
