I love how the express turns reasonable requests into sounding like they are totally evil.

If there is no border, and the uk has proposed no means of restricting the movement of goods, people in Northern Ireland could import chilled meat products to northern Ireland and drive them across the border.

This wouldn't be a problem currently, as our standards are the same as the EU, but thanks to Boris insisting that protections against sub standard meat products were removed from legislation (possibly to allow the import of US chlorinated chicken) then such an insistance is entirely reasonable given that we won't guarantee protections on our side.

But of course according to the express its all the EUs fault.

Eurocrats are threatening to cut all British sausages?

Ouch Baby... Very Ouch.

This means Northern Irish supermarkets would be cut off from their suppliers on the mainland while the province continues to follow EU rules.

I'm confused.

It's getting quite bad across the channel. I hear Brussels is already stockpiling English-made sausages, as well as imports of Cheddar, Wensleydale and Red Leicester, in preparation for what the German government has described as a Wurst-Käse Szenario.

The only fix would be for Brussels to agree to an unprecedented waiver of the regulation.

the uk is going to be in serious trouble when they no longer have the eu to blame everything, real and imaginary, on.  they might have to finally look in the mirror to identify the perpetrator of all their problems

They should join the EU so that they actually have a say; otherwise, fuq off.

If you didn't want the EU to treat you as not a member of the EU, it seems the simple option would have been too remain a member of the EU.

Yes, of course. It is wholly unreasonable of the EU to care about itself and not cave in completely to the mighty intellect of the British Political Elite. How dare they?

Remember: All the conservatives care about is that when it goes bad, the people who get blamed aren't them. And, of course, the Brexiters will just say Brexit cannot fail, it can only be failed, and blame the people in government for cocking it up so badly. That, of course, is the UK government where a requirement of being on cabinet was being a hardcore Brexit supporter willing to leave, deal or no.

So, Brexit cannot fail, it can only be failed, by Brexiters.

2020-02-19Fark user image[Food] Will British sausages be banned in the EU after Brexit because they don't have enough meat in them? Yes, Prime Minister

I got this article greenlit last February, still rather proud of it. I love me some Yes, Prime Minister, I wish more TV shows required more than a sixth grade vocabulary.

I am not one to ask how or what a sausage is made from.  A banger* with hot deli mustard at the old Renfaires with a pint of Newcastle - good times.

*when a guy asked his companion if he knew where the bangers were coming from, my date (a rather small lady who dressed "cute") said, "Prisoners?"
 
2020-11-25 11:06:59 AM  
Such a bad article... it's not even a ban. EU regulations state that uncooked prepared meat products, such as sausages and burgers, cannot be imported into the bloc unless they are frozen to minus 18C.

All they have to do is freeze 'em.

Ah yes, the bendy banana myth. No bananas were ever going to be banned, but they are graded according to irregularities: Bendy Bananas - the Myth to end all Myths | News & Events | European Parliament Liaison Office in the United Kingdom (europa.eu)

And you can bet we'll blame Europe for everything going forward. Every little rule that means we can't do what we want will be blamed on an obstructionist and protectionist EU.

And nearly all of that will be because we want to relax food, hygiene, safety and environmental standards so we can undercut the competition i.e. the EU. Those regulations create as much of a level playing field as is possible in a world where companies are looking at any kind of edge they can to get a competitive advantage.

It's kind of like the concept of "ratios" in Twitter : Tweets that people agree with get liked. Tweets that people do not agree with get commented on.

So, linking to those infuriation articles lead to longer threads, I guess.
