    Has the feel of a parent telling a child off after letting them run riot for months or years

    But the producers of burgers, pies and ready-meals will if the price is right.

    As will most takeaways and a lot of restaurants if they get the chance

    Maybe I am being naïve, but I cannot see the government letting the Aussies export their shitty meat to the UK. It makes no sense at all to hurt a successful domestic industry whose meat production has a relatively low carbon footprint and at the same time reduce animal welfare, all for a negligee boost to GDP after a decade. It doesn't make any sense.

    Surely they Aussies will have to adopt our high standards if they want to export to us?

    With how expensive shipping is atm there's not chance of their meat making it upon our shelves anyway.

    Not in my local farm shop they aren’t - everything there is grown on the Wellington estate is free range and has a good life before it ends up on our BBQ

    You would hope so. One thing that probably won't be improved on much though is the travelling time for the live exports. I am not an expert by any means but I spent a bit of time working on a ranch (unrelated to the ranch work) in the Northern Territory and worked with a guy who grew up in a farming area in South Australia where they would bring in cows from NT. The sheer distance to transfer them from one area to another makes it impossible to move them quickly enough. It took us about 16 hours to drive from co-workers hometown to the ranch we worked on.

    That doesn't sound good. I don't know how live exports would work from Australia to the UK. As well as the travel time you mentioned, they would have to spend a couple of months at sea, as I would assume the cost of airfreight would not be economically viable. Hopefully we wont be receiving any live exports:hopefully

    I highly doubt we'd ever receive any live exports from Australia (possibly very high value products like wagyu beef or something, but then I'd imagine it wouldn't be without food or water during transit).

    Some Aussie farmer on BBC interview said the only thing coming here which isn't already will be high end beef which will cost more than stuff already here.

    I'd agree with that for now, at least until people brave enough to oppose the Government start being locked up or conveniently disappearing

    I wasn't sure which thread to post this in as there are plenty of options but here we go folks, get the children practicing





    And while you're at it, get them goose-stepping with an arm raised towards a massive photo of Bozzer. Oh and don't forget to give them all a Bozzer haircut as they all do with their leader in North Korea
