Life will never be the same again

FARMERS ARE WARNED THAT GLOBAL TRADE DEALS SIGNED AFTER BREXIT COULD HIT THEM HARD, reports Kent Business.  The front page article reports Damian Green MP’s stark warning at Rural PLC’s AGM earlier in the month that life in the rural sector will “never be the same again.”  The key-note speaker pointed out that the UK is predominantly urban and, while a trade deal with the US for example would be good, we would be looking to export services while they want to sell us “chlorine-washed chicken and hormone-enhanced beef.”  He went on to say that it’s vital that farmers make their voice heard, noting that while there are challenges, there are also opportunities ahead.
